“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” – Leo Buscaglia
I’m always amazed by the profound effect that therapeutic touch can have on our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being, and I endeavour to provide a welcoming, inclusive, and safe space at my practice, that promotes better health through massage therapy and movement.
Whether you’re seeking relaxation and restoration, relief from stress and pain, or rehabilitation for an injury, I’ll work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your needs.
With extensive experience as a personal trainer, coach and fitness instructor, I bring a creative and dynamic approach to my massage practice. By integrating movement assessment, massage treatment and functional movement practice, I strive to restore functionality and mobility, and provide you with the tools you need to direct your own healing.
I completed my massage therapy training at Sutherland-Chan School & Teaching Clinic in 2014, and was the recipient of the Sutherland-Chan Professional Clinics Award for academic excellence. In addition to my private practice, I provide massage therapy treatments at Toronto Western Hospital and Ryerson University Massage Clinic. I incorporate a variety of Swedish massage techniques into my practice, as well as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, manual lymphatic drainage therapy and Kinesio Taping (KT1 & KT2 certified).
I’ve had the opportunity to treat a diverse client population, including amputees, MVA and post-surgical clients at Toronto Western Hospital; clients with Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, POTS, EDS, MS and other CNS disorders; stroke and breast cancer survivors; seniors; prenatal and postnatal clients, and high-risk pregnancy patients at Sunnybrook Hospital; amateur and professional athletes, professional musicians; and individuals with a variety of fractures and soft tissue injuries.
I’m also a canfitpro PRO TRAINER and teach the Personal Training Specialist certification, CPR courses, and kettlebell classes at Ryerson University. When I’m not working, you can find me dodging trees in the forest on my dirt bike, teaching sea kayaking courses, or just hanging out and enjoying the fabulous community in the Beach.
I’m delighted to join the dynamic team at Therapy Lounge and look forward to being part of your journey to better health and wellness.
