About Us

Owners Rick Tkach and Jeanie Bezdan started practicing massage therapy together in their first clinic (East Burnaby Massage Therapy) in 1995. It was a small space, with no place to assist clients with therapeutic exercises, and no room to grow. Together they had a vision to open a multidisciplinary clinic with a large gym full of natural light, where clients could access a range of therapies all under the same roof.

Welcome to Royal City Health & Manual TherapyIn July of 2003 they welcomed their first client into a beautiful new clinic, Burnaby Square Orthopaedic & Sports Centre Inc.

In June 2015, we moved to New Westminster and renamed ourselves Royal City Health & Manual Therapy. Our new clinic emphasises hands on physiotherapy complemented with modalities, with therapeutic exercises assigned in our fully equipped gym. Clients benefit from the use of our private gym, with the supervision of their physiotherapist in a comfortable atmosphere. Royal City Health & Manual Therapy grew from a clinic of one physiotherapist + Jeanie and Rick to their current six physiotherapists, 4 massage therapists, dietitian and personal training staff.

While Physicians may refer their patients to Royal City Health & Manual Therapy because of our results driven programs and technical experience of our therapists, patients tell us that what sets us apart is the special care and attention they receive from our staff. As our client, you will be welcomed into our clinic. You will be given a thorough evaluation where the underlying cause of your problem is identified, and your therapist will help you achieve your own personal goal.

Royal City Health & Manual Therapy has early morning as well as evening hours, with a knowledgeable and friendly front staff that can assist you with any questions you have regarding insurance or scheduling.

The Royal City Health & Manual Therapy environment is friendly, caring, and focused on movement. We want you to get back to the life you enjoy!
