ARIAN ASGARI |RMT, CSEP-CPT
Owner & Founder

As the owner of Locus Health Centre, want to welcome you and share some of my bio for all of you. I graduated from Vancouver Career College Registered Massage Therapy (RMT) program in 2015 and come from an extensive sports background with a passion for treating sports injuries and helping people to get back to what they love. Definitely have experienced the taste of serious injuries as I have undergone 3 knee surgeries growing up playing competitive Soccer, which led me to choose a career pathway in Kinesiology and then transferring that knowledge to Registered Massage Therapy. Fair to say having experienced almost all kinds of common sports injuries can benefit my patients when it comes relating to them as to providing a great recovery program for my patients.

On the side Personal Training is one of my passions and hold a CSEP-Certified Personal Trainer. My goal is to help as many patients as possible to help them get back to their pain free activities of daily living whether that is sports or as simple as just brushing your teeth.

Sports Teams:

Currently sponsoring the Columbus FC Men’s Soccer team in the Division 1 of the VMSL as well as sponsoring the Norvan FC Men’s both Division 1 and Premier  league teams and also help various athletes from different sports anywhere from professional, varsity to amateur and recreational levels with injuries when needed. I also helped the UBC Men’s Soccer team with Sports Massage on a part time basis. Athletic taping and Kinesio taping are also part of my services! We are always looking to expand our services to various sports teams in the city. If you are looking for a therapist, please do not hesitate.

GINA TALLIO | RMT

I strongly believe our bodies are amazing things. Capable of incredible feats in order to heal and function although at times it can need some assistance along the way in that healing process. My passion is being a part of that process, to bring about healing in as a holistic way as possible. The excitement of seeing the differences that are made after a massage treatment is what inspires me every day and makes me love what I do even more.

In treatment, I’m passionate about helping restore balance and function by concentrating on everything from soft tissue or muscle problems to joint dysfunctions. My approach is that of holistic balance, I believe that everything is connected. When one part or piece is out of balance then things are brought out of balance everywhere as well. An important step in this process for me is the energy or intent brought into the treatment.

Along with the treatment, I will send you with home care activities that can be worked into a busy daily schedule and be a good stepping stone on the road to healing that we have begun.

I graduated from a 2,700 hour RMT program at Vancouver Career College in 2016. In order to be licensed I had taken the most in-depth and extensive examination process in North America. Towards the end of my program I had conducted a case study in which I worked with a patient with early symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis, to help maintain mobility and restore some of the lost fine motor movements in wrists and hands. My goals were to maintain function and postpone the signature deformities that occur with Rheumatoid Arthritis for as long as possible. In this time I have gained even a greater appreciation for the human body and its resilience.

CARMEN CHUNG | KINESIOLOGY

I have always loved sports, as the mental effort of high performance required such intense concentration that in that moment, little else mattered. As such, I have spent most of the last 20 years in competition, first as a swimmer, then as an ultimate Frisbee player. I have tried to retire out of competition, but each time I try, I keep getting sucked back in. When I first graduated university, I thought I would eventually work as a clinician. As I started working as a Kinesiologist, I discovered that I love the job, and the challenges that come with modifying exercises for a huge variety of injuries.
