Offer Kuban, RMT

Offer graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy, and ran a successful practice in Vancouver for 10 years, treating patients dealing with everything from chronic stress to motor-vehicle injuries. A love of Classical music & Jazz brought him the opportunity to provide care to the VSO’s Music Director and several musicians, performers, and artists.

During a 3-year hiatus, while living in Connecticut, travelling, writing, and photographing around the Eastern Seaboard, he studied to become a medical language specialist before returning to Canada as a medical transcriptionist. His passion for wine later led to preliminary studies with the International Sommelier Guild, and working in the food & wine industry.

This wealth of experience now brings him back to massage therapy, feeling fortunate to join this wonderful team at Anchor Massage.
