Registered Massage Therapist
Osteopath in study
I’m a dedicated practitioner of holistic medicine and have been practicing since 2011. I love empowering patients to understand their bodies and to discover the power of the healing arts. I approach each patient as an individual with unique needs, and offer treatments for people of all ages and states of health. As a Registered Acupuncturist, and Registered Massage Therapist I enjoy being able to bridge the gap between western and eastern medicine, while providing a safe and nurturing atmosphere in which to heal. I have also expanded my treatment approach to include Osteopathic techniques as I am currently working towards a Diploma of Osteopathy Manual Practice through the Collège d’Études Ostéopathiques. In my free time, I am an acrobatic yoga instructor and an aerial circus artist.
My treatment style combines deep tissue massage therapy, myofascial release, osteopathy techniques, and traditional chinese acupuncture. I believe each modality has its own specialities and by combining the best parts of each I create very specific and effective treatment plans to assist my patients with any emotional stress and physiological ailment. My special interests are in helping people with complex and chronic ailments, and assisting them in leading healthy and pain free lifestyles.
I welcome new patients to book their treatment now, and I offer direct billing to most insurance companies for Massage Therapy and Acupuncture treatments.
