What I enjoy most about being a physiotherapist is helping people to fully recover from pain and injury.
In clinical practice, my treatment philosophy is to use a hands-on approach to restore joint mechanics followed by an active treatment approach of muscle retaining and motor control strategies to correct movement dysfunction.
I provide individualized, one-on-one treatment and develop exercise programs geared towards the level and goals of the patient. I use techniques that promote soft tissue release and increase mobility. This rapidly promotes healing, pain relief and returns normal muscle tone and joint function.
I have a wealth of practice and experience treating “difficult” or”tried it all before” type problems. I also frequently see more common types of injury, pain and overuse such as pain in the neck, back, muscles and joints.
The sensitive nervous system and the body’s vast connective tissue (fascial) network have been a focus of intense study for me over the years as well as the complex process of trauma recovery, but most importantly delivered with compassion and sensitivity.
I enjoy taking time to be present with each client and I pay very close attention to subtle clues and details that may be roadmaps to the source of the problem. I listen closely to what the client has to say, because they know what is off in their body, and can help me to help them.
I look forward to meeting you and assist you with healing process.
Diploma in massage therapy
Fire cupping and Introduction to cupping
Hot Stone Deep tissue level 1 & 2
What I enjoy most about being a massage therapist is helping people become more aware of how their body is feeling and having an impact on their everyday lives.In clinical practice, my treatment philosophy is centered around restoring balance. By using a hands on palpation based approach I gather the pieces to look at the whole picture of what is going on, and I deliver a personalized one of a kind treatment to everyone. I like to move the muscles and joints during my treatments because the body is dynamic and so should your treatment. I have lots of experience working with athletes striving for peak performance, and working with clients with mobility issues.I enjoy being mindful and present with my clients during their treatments, building a relationship of trust to help them feel relaxed and enjoy their treatment.I look forward to helping you get back to being yourself.
