Which cases do you enjoy treating? why?
I enjoy treating a variety of cases, as each case provides me with a unique learning opportunity. I enjoy helping patients rehabilitate from musculoskeletal injuries and getting back to doing what they love. I also enjoy working with the general population and helping with posture or work-related pain and muscle imbalances.
I also enjoy providing relaxation massages where the aim is to reduce stress and improve emotional and mental wellbeing. I believe that therapeutic touch is very important to our overall health.
What are the top 3 treatments that you specialize in?
Relaxation, Myofascial and Trigger point release, Pregnancy
I like to always provide my patients with therapeutic exercises and stretches to do at home to prolong the effects of massage treatments.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I feel proud when my treatments help improve the function and wellbeing of my patients. I also feel proud when I can help others feel more empowered and have more control over their health and healing.
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
My education in Kinesiology and Massage has equipped me with a strong foundation of knowledge and skills to understand, prevent and treat musculoskeletal injuries. Having experienced physical injuries myself, I understand the importance of movement and manual therapy in rehabilitating and maintaining a healthy body.
I also have an interest in eastern medicine and have studied energy healing. I believe that our health is influenced by a multitude of factors. I, therefore, aim to treat individuals as a whole, appreciating the interconnectedness between the body, thoughts, emotions and the soul.
