About Me

michelle_massage_therapist

I completed my Registered Massage Therapist training in Ontario where such training is recognized world wide.  During that time, I had the opportunity to work with a wide range of people.

I volunteered at the hospital maternity ward working with moms-to-be through labour and their new born babies.  I also volunteered at a nursing home where I treated seniors in fairly good health to those in the dementia ward.  During several marathons; CIBC Run for the cure, Weekend to End Breast Cancer, I had the opportunity to work with those who participated before and after each event.  All of these were rewarding in very different ways.  I know that massage can benefit people of all ages, with different health conditions, and varied life styles.

My treatments consist of a combination of techniques, myofascial, neuromuscular, general swedish followed by remedial exercises (stretching and strenthening exercises).  This will ensure that my clients benefit from the lasting effects of their massage treatment.

My goal is to make certain that clients get the most out of each session thereby assisting them in achieving their goal of optimal health.  

In 2017 I completed five years of osteopathy studies and am curently a thesis writer. Integrating everything I have learned in osteopathy school in my massage practice allows me to better treat my clients.
