A Philosophy of Wellness
We all need to be kneaded; Touch is such an important part of the human experience. Most of us have a lot going on in our lives. Sometimes we are so busy we forget to take the time to take care of ourselves. Massage Therapy is the perfect way to unwind, ground yourself and loosen the tight muscles in our bodies that life stresses put there.
Core Areas of Treatment
With my training and years of experience I am able to treat a variety of conditions including back and neck pain, whiplash, TMJ (jaw disorders), scars, headaches, sprains, strains, stress, athletic injuries, pregnancy discomfort, infant and children massage. Many of my clients have been involved in Motor Vehicle Accidents so I am also able to deal with insurance companies. I have experience working with palliative care, cancer, stroke, MS, and amputee patients.
I also have a mobile massage table and massage chair so am able to provide work place massage therapy if an employer has a workplace wellness program.
Massage Therapy can be light and relaxing or deeper and more therapeutic. Both are beneficial and it’s up to you what kind of treatment you would like. I can use a range of techniques from Relaxation massage to Deep Tissue and Trigger point therapy. I also have some tools to help treat scars, whether they are recent or years old.
Pre-natal massage can decrease joint and back pain, release tense muscles, improve blood and lymph circulation and relieve fatigue and anxiety. I even have the special cushions to allow you to lay on your tummy throughout your whole pregnancy. I have also been known to help induce labor when you are near or past your due date!

I love my job.
I love how diverse it can be. I love the flexibility it provides. I love how it helps people to feel healthier and happier.
My professional career began in 1999, when I completed my 3,300-hour diploma from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy. (The minimum schooling required in Alberta to become an RMT is just 2,200 hours.) After growing up on Vancouver Island, I then moved from Vancouver to Edmonton, preferring snow over rain, and I opened my own clinic in 2000.
As a member of the Massage Therapist Association of Alberta, I’ve pursued many professional development opportunities during my career, adopting advanced techniques to calm headaches, relieve jaw pain and release scars. Several of the clients I treat are recovering from whiplash symptoms after motor vehicle accidents.
