A graduate of Sutherland-Chan, I have been working as a massage therapist since 2000. My training includes Swedish Massage, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Sports Injuries and Pregnancy Massage. My continuing education has included Craniosacral Therapy and Acupressure. I use the different modalities along with Ultrasound or electrotherapy, if indicated, to offer a treatment to address your specific concerns while maintaining an overall focus to all factors which contribute to your health and well-being.
During the time you are together I will offer ways to release tension or help heal injuries outside your massage session, for example; relaxing breathing techniques, the use of heat or ice or gentle exercises to increase flexibility and teach your body more efficient movements.
I have been a Registered Massage Therapist for over 20 years. After graduating from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy, I was fortunate to connect to an instructor of Myofascial Release (MFR). My practice continues to be built upon this methodical process whether it is a dynamic or static approach. I continue to educate myself in business, functional anatomy, movement therapy, aquatic massage, athletic taping. Ultrasound and Electrotherapy. All courses enrich the massage experience.
You and I are in a constant state of change due to the trials and tribulations we experience from day to day. This will affect the type of massage you want to experience as well as the type of massage your body will handle. I look at you based on the above and with your input and feedback we can together make a treatment that attends to your needs and wants.
We offer Registered Massage Therapy, Myofascial work, Deep tissue massage and Acupuncture.
