Dinyar Mistry, Registered Massage Therapist

Upon successfully completing a Bachelor’s in Instrumentation Engineering, I decided to follow my passion as a Senior Dance, Yoga Instructor & Performing artist with the Shiamak Davar’s Institute for the Performing Arts (SDIPA). I taught in Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Banglore, Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver. With the dance company, I was fortunate to have performed in Malaysia, Egypt, China, London, Amsterdam, San Francisco, Dubai, Toronto, and Vancouver.

Shiamak sent me for the 300 hour & 500 hour Yoga teachers training program at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwantari Ashram in India. I have instructed his IDM classes since then. Inner Dance Movement is a unique self-care program using elements of Yoga and Dance, IDM is designed to Empower your Body Mind and Spirit.

During my journey as a Yoga/ Dance Instructor and performing artist, I experienced the power of massage as a medium to provide therapy, comfort, relaxation, and manage pain. This eventually led me to study at Vancouver College of Massage Therapy (VCMT). Upon completion of the same, the school honored me with their “Heart Award “ given for ‘Unconditional positive regard for others combined with a passionate commitment to excellence in the massage therapy profession.’

My RMT treatments involve both active and passive components. They include a thorough history and orthopedic assessment of the body, testing muscles in various positions checking their ability to effectively turn on and off while looking for compensation patterns and receptor dysfunctions. This helps unravel the layers associated with the surface presentations taking us closer to the cause.

 

Functional neurology is my preferred area of practice, this includes Neurokinetic therapy and the more advanced Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex P-DTR. The tissues are also treated with various orthopedic and Swedish techniques & a personalized home care plan is given.

When not at work, I love spending time with my daughter and wife watching movies singing, and dancing, I love being surrounded by nature. I am always reading, listening to music, exploring movement & stillness.

Through Intention Wellness I offer workshops in Movement, Breathwork & Yoga. I continue to volunteer and work with my dance school teaching Inner Dance Movement.
