John Kim completed the programs for RMT at VCC in 2023. During the program, he gained experiences with different populations from outreaches such as Seton Villa and SFU and patients from VCC Student Clinic. These experiences have allowed him to care for, treat, and assist people of all different ages, backgrounds, and needs.

His preferred treatment modalities are Swedish massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, lymphatic drainage massage, joint mobilizations, and neuromuscular technique.
