Keenan Leary, RMT

My name is Keenan Leary, I am a graduate of the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in Victoria, BC. I moved to the Yukon in 2017 to expand my horizons and start my practice in Massage Therapy.

My preferred massage therapy techniques include: 
  • Deep Tissue Massage
  • Myofascial Release
  • Trigger Point Therapy 
  • Active Release Therapy
  • Active and Passive stretching
These treatment modalities help with injury rehabilitation and with increased over all performance in most activities.

Keenan will be starting the YNTEP program in the fall of 2023 and, as a result, he will be reducing his hours. 


As a dancer and an active individual, I believe that everyone should feel the best they possibly can in their body to enjoy life to the fullest, no matter what their age, body type, occupation or passion.

I received my training at Sutherland Chan School of Massage Therapy in Toronto, where I learned exercise science and the traditional techniques of western massage. I have experience treating athletes, seniors, pregnant persons, people living with cancer, people living with spinal cord injuries and patients with a wide variety of other soft tissue conditions.

While I gravitate toward deeper pressure in massage treatments, I am equally effective at more gentle treatments aimed to calm the nervous system and to allow people to just relax. I am certified in medical acupuncture and am completing my certification in hot stone massage. I will be offering both of these treatment modalities in the near future.

I am a member in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, and a member of the Registered Massage Therapists’ Association of Ontario and the Canadian Contemporary Acupuncture Association.
