Registered Massage Therapist (On Maternity Leave)

I have been learning from experience and honing my skill as a Registered Massage Therapist since graduating from the massage therapy program at Sir Sanford Fleming College in 2011.
“The body benefits from movement, and the mind benefits from stillness” (Sakyong Mipham) is a quote that really resonates with me. This theory is applied throughout my massage therapy treatments. I strive to provide a therapeutic massage in a relaxing atmosphere. I believe that without a present but quiet mind, the body is limited in its ability to relax and absorb feedback. Your body does the healing, my job is to point it in the right direction.
My goal is to create movement in the tissues with physical manipulation using a variety of techniques from Swedish and deep tissue variations, push & pull forces, gliding, sheering, compression, joint mobilizations, passive and active movement, and occasionally incorporate tools such as silicone cups to create a negative pressure in those stubborn areas. I have widespread interest in treating day-to-day soreness, posture, pre and post natal care, chronic injuries, and sudden, acute pain.
Outside of massage therapy, I have a passion for riding horses, practice yoga frequently, and enjoy settling down with a quiet book.
