In 2007, I graduated with honours from the Registered Massage Therapy program at Elmcrest College of Applied Health Sciences and Spa Management.

After completing my BA at York University for Theatre in 2004, I knew I hadn’t found the right path.  My interest in becoming an RMT really began while completing a reflexology course.  I was intrigued by the anatomy and function of the body and knew I had to learn more.  Once I started massaging, I felt like I had found the missing piece.  I have personally experienced the healing power of massage and chiropractic care, and my life has been positively changed by the effects of these therapies.  I strive to provide my clients with the same positive experience.

My personalized approach reflects my belief that massage can be used as a positive tool to emotionally and physically increase an overall sense of health and wellness. Providing a unique and individualized approach to every assessment and treatment, I believe in working with my clients to help them achieve their healing goals.  I believe that healing is an active process and I encourage my clients to participate through “homework,” such as hydrotherapy, stretching and strengthening exercises and stress reduction.

In my experience providing labour support, I have seen the positive effects of massage therapy for the physical demands of pregnancy and to aid in the changes taking place before, during and after labour.  Understanding that this is a very intimate experience, I believe in working with each client to establish a plan, ensuring individual needs can be met during this personal time.

I have a strong passion for learning, and am always looking to improve upon my skills as a healthcare provider.  I am constantly reading and researching to add to my knowledge and I tutor anatomy to colleagues and massage students. I recently completed my Level II Reiki, a type of energy work, and I hope to progress to become a Reiki Master.

I provide Swedish massage techniques, including hydrotherapy for relaxation and therapeutic purposes.  I treat a wide variety of conditions, including but not limited to:

Pregnancy Massage
Headache/ Migraine Treatments
Postural imbalances
Arthritic Conditions
Stress and anxiety

I have made my home in the beaches and am thrilled to be a part of the Therapy Lounge team.  Let me help nurture your mind, body and spirit.  I look forward to meeting you.
