I have been a registered massage therapist since June 2012, after graduating with honours from the Massage Therapy program in Toronto. I am registered under the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) and a proud member of the Registered Massage Therapist Association of Ontario (RMTAO).
Before moving to Hamilton in the fall of 2013, I treated clients at the Mayfair Club, a private tennis club in Toronto. I had the opportunity to treat clients with a wide range of conditions and needs, including rehabilitative, relaxation, and sports-based.
After moving to Hamilton, I've been able to expand on the areas of massage therapy that have really been of interest to me. I have been able to assist clients with whiplash, concussions, chronic pain, and most predominantly, postural-based dysfunction. Our society is a flexion-based one, with almost everyone sitting in front of a computer, in a car, or hunched over a cell phone. Combine that with the high levels of stress we incur through our daily routines, it's no wonder most of us aren't having even more pain and discomfort than we already have. Massage can be a helpful factor in correcting poor postural habits and promoting better bio-mechanics.
I am very happy to now be settled into the Corktown neighbourhood in downtown Hamilton. I think it's a wonderful part of the city and I'm excited to be a part of it.
