The advanced specializations include vinyasa, hatha, restorative, limited mobility, arm balances and inversions, prenatal, and pranayama (breath-work).

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
My work as a massage therapist is focused on identifying and healing the root cause of discomfort. I guide the mind and body back to a balanced state with the understanding that these two halves must be relaxed for healing to take place.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
I specialize in treating jaw pain (TMJ dysfunction), shoulder injuries, and postural imbalances. I capitalize on my placements at Fife House and the Toronto Rehab Institute.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I combine massage with breath awareness along with my knowledge of human anatomy, yoga, and meditation to facilitate functional movement and a sense of well-being in order to promote holistic recovery. I practice Vipassana meditation having attended seven 10-day silent meditation retreats.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I am passionate about treating complex cases as I enjoy being challenged in my knowledge of assessment. For me, the process of rehabilitation of each client means growth of the therapist too.
