Growing up in a small town in Northern Ontario, I have always had a passion for nature and my interest in the healthcare field began early. As a child I was always active outdoors and played many types of sports. When I began to develop musculoskeletal discomfort I was referred to a Massage Therapist for treatment. I was deeply impressed with the power of the healing hands and interested in the anatomy of the human body. The ability to heal the whole body naturally was when I realized I wanted to aide people in their physical, mental, and emotional wellness.
In 2003, I graduated from the Massage Therapy program at Sault College and moved immediately to the Beach to pursue my career. So happy to have found an active friendly community that made me feel at home.
I believe in the importance of taking continuing education courses to further my knowledge and skills. In May 2006 I became a Certified Reflexology Healthcare Practitioner from the School of Footsteps Reflexology. Reflexology is a holistic approach that treats the body as a whole. I manually stimulate nerve endings causing reflexes in the feet to correspond to each part of the human body.
To improve on my massaging techniques, I took a NISA (Neuromuscular Integration and Structural Alignment) course in April 2007. NISA is a complementary modality, which involves a system of specific physical manipulation of muscular and connective tissue that corrects and aligns the structure of the body.
To prolong your treatment even further, I offer SpiderTech™ Kinesiology taping that can be worn continuously for up to 5 days. The applications work by naturally stimulating your body’s own pain relief and healing mechanism. The stimulation caused by the tape on your skin reduces inflammation and discomfort associated with injuries and allows your body to recover faster.
In November 2007, I had the opportunity to create and open my dream clinic “Therapy Lounge”. We are a team of 17 diverse and passionate health practitioners to help achieve individual whole body healing in a caring, comforting, and natural atmosphere. Our varieties of techniques are designed to decrease pain and tension in body, mind and spirit. We work together to create a holistic and effective treatment plan to keep you happy, healthy and feeling your best. We often give suggested self-care stretches and health tips to be added to your daily routine and healthy life style because as the seasons change so do the demands on our bodies as we begin new activities and chores.
Let the TL team get to the root of the problem and take care of you naturally head to toe.
