Registered Massage Therapist
I have been a Massage Therapist for 15 years with experience in spa and clinical settings, specializing in geriatrics and paediatrics. I have also practiced in a rehab physiotherapy clinic, and worked with sufferers of motor vehicle accidents and work place injuries. I feel that my work experience enables me to adapt to my client’s needs and requests. I have had the privilege to work with other great health care professionals – massage therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors and physiotherapists, and have a great respect and knowledge for many forms of alternative health care.
For 12 years after graduating I divided my work time between practice and teaching. I supervised student clinics and organized outreaches in the community at the school I graduated from in Ontario, and in 2012 lead the Massage Therapy program at Eastern College in Fredericton. Teaching was a great way to stay current with my anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, hydrotherapy and specific types of treatments.
In the past couple years I have dedicated myself to clinical practise. I am excited to expand on my career with taking courses in ‘Indian Scalp Massage’ and ‘Sports Rehabilitation’.
I truly feel blessed to have a job I love. I look forward to expanding my career.
