RMT, full-time massage therapist
I was first introduced to the benefits of massage when I sought relief from an injury incurred during a cycling accident. The remarkable effectiveness of this therapy on both my body and mind, not only sold me on the benefits of massage, but was also the spark that ignited my desire to become a massage therapist.
Since completing the 2-year program at the Vicars School of Massage Therapy, I have taken further training in myofascial release, sports massage, and active/passive release movements. Having recently moved to Edmonton, I was seeking a place to practice where I could continue to treat those desiring a balanced and healthy lifestyle. I find the yogic philosophy perfectly complementary to that of massage therapy, and am very pleased to have found a place at Lion’s Breath.
I truly believe in the powerful healing capabilities of massage, and that the benefits go beyond the superficial, and are both physical and emotional. I feel that the physical and emotional are inextricably linked, and that the positive impacts of massage therapy extend into other facets of a person’s life. My main goal with each treatment is to provide specific care tailored to the needs of each individual. I feel it is very important to understand and address areas of chronic tension in the body in order to facilitate the healing process. My massage space is one of trust and openness and I encourage communication to ensure people get exactly what they need and want out of each massage experience.
