Massage Therapy
Massage therapy involves the manipulation of the soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments) and joints by the therapist, using a variety of manual techniques. These techniques improve functioning of the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, skeletal and nervous systems and improve the rate at which the body recovers from injury or illness. Combined Decongestive Therapy uses Integrated Lymph Drainage, Myofascial Release and other components in the treatment of Primary and Secondary Lymphedema.

“When I embarked on a change of careers, I was looking for a field in which I would be able to help others to reduce and manage their pain, while increasing their sense of well being. This desire motivated me to choose massage therapy. Before becoming a Registered Massage Therapist, I worked as a laboratory technologist in a busy hospital environment. It was there that I witnessed firsthand a lot of pain, suffering and anxiety experienced by people coping with the various conditions that brought them there. Massage therapy has equipped me with the ability to offer care and comfort to those who need it. I believe massage therapy is an integral part of a health and wellness regime. I find it extremely rewarding to work one-on-one with clients; working together to create a strategy for pain management, while assisting in their journey of recovery and striving towards the best possible outcome.”
