Massage therapy is the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction, injury, pain and disorders of soft tissue and joints of the body using manipulation of muscle, nerves, connective tissues, tendons and ligaments, mobilization of joints, and other manual methods. Registered massage therapy in BC is an evidence-based clinically oriented healthcare option that helps facilitate rehabilitation of orthopaedic injuries and surgeries, alleviate the discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions.

A therapist who understands: I am also active in my hobbies, juggling personal life with work, and have times when I need a little help looking after my health in the midst of all the busyness of life.
Evidence-based therapy for safe, effective care: To accommodate a wide range of health history and treatment goals I keep up to date with evidence-based therapy and have studied with some of the world’s leaders in healthcare.
Online booking and virtual reception: It’s frustrating having to play phone tag to make an appointment. With me you can book online 24/7 and call or email me directly for accurate answers to your questions.
Direct billing for most extended medical policies: Why go through the hassle of submitting receipts if you don’t have to? With me you pay only what your insurance doesn’t cover. Please contact me if you need to make sure your policy is billable directly.
As a registered massage therapist with a background in yoga and fitness, my passion for educating people in preventative and rehabilitative self-care has led me to pursue training in fitness and exercise psychology, yoga therapy, sports massage therapy, neurokinetic therapy, and pediatric massage.
I understand how important it is for you to feel comfortable and capable in your body so that you can be active in the things that bring you joy, and I’m dedicated to helping you reach your goals.

My interests include working with old trauma injuries, such as fractures and dislocated joints, that may be affecting your performance, and creating better muscle and joint function to avoid those annoying repetitive strain injuries. Let’s get you out there playing smarter, stronger, and injury free!
