Yonge & Bloor | Natascha (Tasch) Malta, RMT

I’m Tasch (they/she), a nonbinary massage therapist and recent Sutherland Chan graduate. At school, I had the pleasure of working with people from all different walks of life, with all different kinds of bodies. Relaxation and body positivity are 2 guiding principles for me, and I want my work to be a tool to help people empower people to feel their best in their bodies. I don’t believe massage needs to be painful to be effective, and my style combines elements of Swedish and myofascial massage, as well as the occasional Thai massage technique or breathwork cue.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

Calming the nervous system is the foundation of the treatments that I provide. As someone who has lived with fibromyalgia most of my life, I understand what it’s like to live with chronic pain and muscle tension. Massage and movement have been an important part of learning to make life with chronic conditions more manageable, and if you’re looking for a more preventative approach to your pain- I would love to help you out!

Come see me if you enjoy a massage where feeling good and relaxation are prioritized, even with deep tissue work. I can work into your knots with trigger point therapy to release deep-rooted tension, but I also strive to work within your limits to provide a safe and effective treatment for you even if you require gentle pressure. I hope to empower my patients in 2-way, open communication to say no to what isn’t working for them and ask for more of what is.

What are you most proud of in your practice?

I feel a sense of pride any time I can help someone get back to doing more of what they love with an increased sense of ease. Some of my proudest moments include working with a breast cancer survivor to help restore and maintain lymphatics, and tissue quality 8 years after surgery. Helping people feel more at peace in their own bodies, and knowing that I can make an impact on my patients’ quality of life makes me feel really proud of what I do.

What are the top 3 treatments that you specialize in?

Massage to help get a good night’s rest. People deal with loss of sleep for so many reasons, and restoring your sleep helps set you up for success with your other health goals and conditions.

The head, neck, and face are some of my favourite areas to work on. It can both be very relaxing and makes a great addition to a relaxation-focused treatment. As well, it can be very relieving for people with neck pain, headaches, and TMJ issues or jaw pain.

Massage to help reduce nerve pain. If you experience pins and needles, or burning, shooting, electric-like pain this might be for you. In these treatments I use more myofascial techniques to release the nerve along its pathway. This approach is effective at reducing pain from carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, and thoracic outlet syndrome (amongst others).

Scar-work/Post-surgical breast massage. Whether you’ve dealt with breast cancer, have had breast reduction surgery, or have had or are thinking about a gender-affirming top surgery- breast massage can be a helpful tool in maintaining tissue health. Massage therapy and scar work are an important part of any surgery plan to the area, and it can be beneficial to release the myofascia of the chest before getting the surgery (**especially if you practice binding).

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I really like treating people who are working on their emotional or mental health healing journeys. Massage can be a great tool in addition to a fully realized health care plan that includes psychotherapy or counselling, to help you process the physical manifestations that stress takes on your body. The mind and body are intrinsically linked, and feeling better in your body can be an important part of feeling better period.

I would also like to extend a special welcome to the LGBTQ+ community. Sometimes being treated by a fellow community member helps you relax a little more, and I’d be honoured to provide that for my fellow LGBTQ+ identifying folks.
