Receiving a prenatal massage made me change careers, and I’ve never looked back. Pregnant and sore with my first child, I went for a massage. It was amazing. I loved massage so much that I spent three years studying it. I soon found out that I love giving massage as much as I love getting them. I feel very lucky to have found this new path.
I graduated from Algonquin College’s Massage program with honours and successfully completed the registration exams with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario to become a Registered Massage Therapist. I furthered my training with a course in pregnancy massage and training in the Active Release Technique (ART) for the upper and lower extremities. I’ve also taken level 1 and 2 craniosacral therapy.
Over the years I have had a number of clients that have been diagnosed with cancer. We studied safe ways to treat people with cancer in school but I wanted more information on the subject. I started by taking courses to help me in this such as massage therapy for people living with cancer and myofascial release. I have also taken courses for pediatric massage and oncology pediatric massage.
I have taught part time in the massage therapy programs at Algonquin for a few years and have discovered that I also love teaching. I’m no longer teaching massage therapy students but I find opportunities to teach clients about massage therapy and it’s many benefits.
My treatments are based on Swedish massage methods and include other techniques such as myofascial release, joint mobilizations and craniosacral therapy. Everybody and every body are different, and all massages are tailored specifically to the client.
