Registered with the Canadian Massage and Manual Osteopathic Therapists Association (CMMOTA), I have continued to learn more about massage by taking continuing education courses. My knowledge spans many different therapies as I love to learn about the human body and the many ways to help it move towards health. Some modalities that I employ in my treatments include myofascial release, orthopedic massage, lymphatic drainage, craniosacral therapy, trigger point release, and cupping. I am well versed in pregnancy massage, having focused in my career on assisting women through the many changes that their bodies go through during the 40 week period, and after. I also have spent time focusing on addressing health concerns arising from gender affirmation treatments/surgery, and helping my patients cope with the physical side effects of stress. With an outgoing, welcoming, and laid-back personality, I am a firm believer in creating a safe space and reducing stress to help my clients move towards their health goals.
As a therapist who loves to learn, after graduating from the Massage Therapy program I decided to go back to MacEwan University for the Acupuncture program. Having graduated in 2018, I have been working towards learning the best way to treat my patients with a combination of Eastern and Western medical knowledge. With a focus that has been predominantly on musculoskeletal issues - such as pain, swelling, decreased range of motion, and headaches - I have been striving to create the best possible combination treatment of acupuncture and massage. More recently I have been focusing my continuing education on the affects of scar tissue in the body and how acupuncture can help reduce both the adhesion and appearance of it.
I strive to provide a space where everyone and every body can relax and recieve the health care treatment that they deserve. I look forward to helping my patients further their journeys towards health with a well devised, and personalized, treatment plan.
