Field Trip Health is looking for a Registered Massage Therapist to join our innovative psychedelic psychotherapy practice in Vancouver as an independent contractor. This position is a part-time commitment of 2-3 days/week. Field Trip’s program leverages cutting edge research in psychedelic medicine with evidence-based practices to offer modern mental healthcare solutions. Incorporating adjunct body-based treatments such as massage therapy allows individuals participating in this treatment a holistic, person-centered approach to healing. We believe that healing does not happen in isolation and thus it is imperative when treating mental health conditions to also treat the physical manifestations of conditions that individuals may be experiencing. The ideal candidate for this position will be a warm, empathetic, detail oriented individual with 2+ years of experience as a RMT and be well versed in providing trauma-informed care.
Field Trip is currently offering ketamine assisted psychotherapy with the vision of incorporating other psychedelic therapeutics once FDA expanded access is granted.
Ketamine is emerging as an effective option in the treatment of depression, PTSD and other mental health issues. Our philosophy is an integrative, collaborative approach emphasizing the importance of therapeutic alliances, cultivating self-agency and creating optimal conditions through set and setting to support a person’s inner healing intelligence. We believe that the biochemical antidepressant and neuroplastic properties of ketamine are amplified when a person is well prepared for their journey and results maximized when there is space for new insights and perspectives to be integrated into their life experiences.
