Experience & Background
After graduating from Vancouver’s WCCMT, 3-year, 3,000-hour massage programme – the most comprehensive in Canada, I have been registered with the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia (CMTBC) since 2000.
My treatment approach, over the last 20 years, has been influenced through my own personal experience with sporting injuries and surgeries. I have first-hand knowledge of how restrictions through scar tissue and adhesions can impact movement patterns and performance of activities, which can then lead to pain and overuse injuries. This led me to pursue continuing education in Intensive Integral Anatomy to see first-hand and better understand the connection between the fascia and its structures and how it impacts posture, alignment and its important relationship with function.
I use a variety of treatment modalities including myofascial and trigger point release, joint mobilisations and muscle energy techniques. When the body responds to treatment with increased mobility, it allows for improved strength building and pain-free performance in activities of daily living, exercise and sport.
