About Me

 

"Experience the

healing touch."

 

 

After a lifetime of providing untrained massage to friends and family, I decided to follow my dream of becoming a registered massage therapist.  After a 25 year career in marketing I decided to go back to school.

 

I graduated in August 2009 from the Toronto Institute of Complementary & Alternative Therapies (I.C.A.T.) where hands-on learning in a small class environment provided a well-rounded skill set. I passed the provincial standard exams and was licensed in October 2009.

 

While still in school, I attended three additional courses from Trimesters Massage Therapy Education that followed my passion of helping women to provide the best start to their babies lives: Pregnancy massage, Doula/Labour Support, Infant & Child massage.

 

Continuing to enhance my skill set, in 2010, I completed both Levels 1 and 2 of CranioSacral Therapy, followed in 2011 by Levels 1 and 2 of SomatoEmotional Release Therapy from The Upledger Institute. In March 2012 I took a Pediatrics course specifically for enhancing my treatments of infants and children. To learn more about these therapies, see the page under services.

 

In the fall of 2013 I added Acupuncture to my toolbox of techniques, completing the McMaster University Medical Acupuncture Program  This allows me to offer clients another way to treat conditions like tendinitis, sprains and strains, reduce pain and help release muscle tension.

 

In the spring of 2015 I added ACE Massage Cupping to my techniques which assist with the remediation and reduction of scar tissue and the adhesions that go along with them. The cupping is also effective for reducing muscle tension, increasing hydration to tight tissues and reducing facial tightness associated with TMJ and headaches.

 

As a lifelong learner, I will continue to enhance my knowledge base to expand what I can offer to my clients to achieve their goals.

 

I have worked with many post-surgical clients to help them return to functionality. I have worked with clients who have experienced car accidents, illnesses leading to loss of function as well as people dealing with chronic tendinitis and other restrictions.

 

I work with world class adult athletes in Dragon Boat Racing as well as Triathalons. I have experience treating competitive teenage athletes in swimming, dance, hockey, soccer, ballet and horseback riding.  In one instance, a competitive swimmer was able to reduce their swim time by 5 seconds in a competitive meet after only 4 treatments.  The client followed the recommended exercises and stretches which resulted in dramatically increased healing time and return to full functionality with an increase in results!

 

I look forward to working with you to help you reach your healthcare goals!
