Registered Massage Therapy
Welcome to my massage therapy practice.
As a dedicated kinesiologist and registered massage therapist with over 20 years of clinical experience, I specialize in human movement, injury recovery and persistent pain management.
I believe in a collaborative approach with my clients to provide the best treatment outcome. I also believe in participating in ongoing, research based continuing education to develop my skills as a practitioner. When working with you to meet your treatment goals, I may recommend we use one (or more) of the following treatment modalities that I am certified in:
Massage therapy is the assessment of the soft tissue and joints of the body and the
treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissue and joints
by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or
relieve pain. Massage therapists may also teach, manage, and conduct research in
the science, techniques, and practice of massage therapy.
