RMT – I became interested in understanding the human kinetic structure after I had a reoccurring sports injury, which ultimately led me to a career as a massage therapist. I graduated Turner Institute of Orthopedic Massage in 2012, and have since spent my time practising in the Leduc/ Beaumont area. In July 2015, I became the owner-operator of Pure Essence Massage Studio. My approach to treatment is to focus on creating balance through the soft tissue, to allow optimal joint function. This is achieved through different assessment tools and varied massage techniques that I have studied throughout my years of practice. Deep Tissue Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Muscle Energy and Myofascial Release are a few of the techniques integrated into each hands-on treatment. Throughout my treatments, I find it helpful to inform patients of my findings, which assists in the patient’s self-awareness and ultimately to a greater body/mind connection. I also encourage patient involvement through remedial exercise. Although I enjoy working to create balance through the physical structure, I have treated many different conditions over the years. My practice encompasses everything from stress relief to chronic illness, acute or chronic injury and I have a specialized training in Pre and Postnatal Massage. When I am not working with clients, I spend time with my family and friends. To create my own personal balance, I referee competitive swimming, enjoy music, exercise, and when time permits, a good book.
I obtained my 2200 hour massage therapy diploma at Alberta college of massage therapy in June of 2019. I have been trained in therapeutic, deep tissue, myofascial release, PNF stretching which I very much enjoy incorporating into my treatments, joint mobilizations and prenatal massage but I am wanting to take another course on prenatal massage to further my knowledge. I have so far taken extra training courses since I’ve graduated including, cupping and hot stone that I also very much enjoy incorporating into my treatments as the benefits are great. I have now began more training in manual osteopathic therapy to be able to help my clients further. It is a lot more assessing of the client with light energy needed to treat the dysfunctions but there is also visceral manipulation fasciae remodeling and much more.
