Massage Therapy

I have been a Registered Massage Therapist for over 22 years, graduating from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy (CCMH). The reason I took interest in Massage Therapy was to help people. When I was able to make a difference in how people felt, I found it so rewarding and making it a career was an easy decision. I offer Massage Therapy ranging from deep therapeutic to relaxation. Pregnancy and youth massage is welcome! I also provide Cupping Therapy primarily for myofascial release. 

I am also a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, offering nutritional counselling ranging from basic advice to providing a complete lifestyle and diet change, including meal plans. I am certified in Fascial Movement Taping to help clients with their pain, injuries and postural corrections.

NUTRITION COUNSELLING

As a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, I help people with their diet, nutrition choices and questions, and counsel them to live a healthier lifestyle. The connection between nutrition and massage is that they are both a direct way of acheiving or maintaining a healthy body, mind and spirit.  I can provide helpful hints and a little assistance, or be a food and lifestyle coach, or anything in between.  I work with clients to create a balanced diet with whole and natural foods, based on their individual needs and goals.


The Holistic Approach:

  • Addresses the body as a whole
  • Emphasizes prebention instead of cure
  • Treats the causes not just the symptoms

CUPPING THERAPY

Cupping Therapy is a technique that creates a suction using a cup. It draws the skin up into the cup and separates the layers of superficial fascia, drawing blood to the level of the skin.  This causes new blood to rush in below, removing stagnation.  It is common to be left with a mark called ecchymosis, which is not a bruise but is caused by seepage of blood from the vessels.

As the client, you would feel the skin pulling or a pinching feeling, that can be mild or strong depending on your disire and comfort level. 


BENEFITS of Cupping:

  • Increases blood circulation
  • Increases the function of sweat glands
  • Increases the secretion of toxins
  • Increases the fluids around layers of fascial
  • Increases range of motion by decreasing fascial restrictions which can affect deeper tissues and organs
  • Decreases muschle tension
  • Decreases restrictions from scars and adhesions
  • Specifically beneficial to the IT Band
  • Stimulates digestive fluids
  • Relief from lung congestion
  • Improvement with chronic inflammation
  • May provide sedative effect
