PHILOSOPHY: Motion is Life!
I make physical and mechanical changes to your body that affect how it functions and moves. I do this by physically engaging the tissues at a muscular and fascial level. My goal as a Massage Therapist is to improve the quality of life of my clients and my focus is more on making physical changes to tissues rather than putting emphasis on relaxing the nervous system. Over my 12+ years of practicing Massage Therapy I have learned that usually the best way to improve someone's quality of life is by improving the pain free movement and function of their body!
My focus early on in my practice was treating athletes and I have worked with a variety of athletes from kids all the way up to Olympians and professional athletes. As my practice grew, I started to appreciate that life is a sport and we are all competing in it. Just like any other athlete, we all need to perform our best and move in the most efficient way possible to be successful in our "sport".

PHILOSOPHY: Goal setting is extremely important, not just in sport but in life!
Professionally, I am a Registered Massage Therapist as well as a Dental Hygienist. I have been working with clients in Kingston and the surrounding area as a hygienist for 10 years. I harbor a love of fitness which began young, as I competed both nationally (Canadian Championships) as well as internationally (PanAm Games) as a sprint Canoer, representing the Gananoque Canoe Club. Since hanging up my competitive paddle I have become an enthusiastic Tri-Athlete, completing many races, including two Half Ironmans.
I always have a goal on the go, and believe that goal setting is extremely important, not just in sport but in life! That being said, my fitness background has given me some essential tools for offering the best treatment possible through collaboration with clients. Teamwork is extremely important to achieving the results you desire; it is primary to my practice and to your health! I look forward to my work with a wide range of individuals, seeking treatment for various reasons, but always with one thing in common: goals. Let's work together to improve your quality of life!
