Registered Massage Therapist, Certified Lymphatic (Lymphedema) Therapist
I have been a practicing registered massage therapist since 2008, I am also a fully certified Lymphedema/Lymphatic therapist. I started my practice in Cornwall, Ontario and have years of experience of working in a multidisciplinary physiotherapy and rehabilitation clinic.
Since moving to Kingston in 2016, I have played tourist and enjoyed much of what Kingston has to offer. I am pleased to join Best Health Physiotherapy and provide massage therapy as part of a health care team.
Looking for a French Speaking RMT? I am fully bilingual and happy to discuss your treatment plans and goals in French! Ma mission est d’offrir des services professionnels basés sur des approches corporelles éprouvées s’adressant à des personnes souffrant de stress ou de maux physiques chroniques ou aigus.
With my care you will find massage sessions tailored to your needs with intention to promote ongoing health and wellness. I am trained and experienced in treating a variety of conditions, including sports injuries and rehabilitation, acute pain and swelling, lymphedema, chronic pain management, whiplash, tendonitis, pregnancy, and frozen shoulder.
Often a client will ask what “type” of massage I can provide. Treatments and techniques that I offer include myofascial release, deep tissue therapy, active release, relaxation, mobilizations, acupressure, therapeutic ultrasound, myofascial cupping, kinesiotaping, and lymphatic drainage. My quest for new resources and training has led to current studies of the McGill Method, an approach to low back disorders, and towards Visceral Manipulation level 1 certification with The Barral Institute.
Additionally, with a combination of Integrated Lymphatic Drainage and therapeutic massage I can treat post-operative orthopedic conditions, axillary web syndrome, post-op breast re-construction, post-op plastic surgery, head and neck lymphedema, Fibrocystic Breast Disease, scar tissue/wound management and general injury rehabilitation.
I include a strong emphasis on client education, empowerment and self-care techniques with all treatments. I look forward to meeting you and helping you attain your treatment goals. Nous vous écoutons et prenons soins de vous.
