My goal for you is to help you create a balance between health and lifestyle. I believe we can all benefit from a large range of modalities, and communication is key. Open dialogue about client goals and needs will ensure balance on your journey to wellness.

My treatments incorporate more than just “deep tissue” work; I typically use techniques such as myofascial release, trigger point work, therapeutic exercises, education on posture and sleep patterns, and nutrition.

While working alongside fellow RMT’s, physiotherapists and kinesiologists, I have developed a treatment style that incorporates a balance between sound clinical reasoning and a deep relaxation experience. I am currently working toward completing MLD – Manual Lymph Drainage certification.

Manual Lymph Drainage is a type of massage based on the hypothesis that it will encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues, to an area that drains normally. It is mainly used for lymphedema, but many can benefit from this modality. Breast cancer survivors, burn unit survivors, and people with varicose veins are examples of patients who can benefit. MLD not only improves lymphatic circulation, it also increases blood flow in deep and superficial veins.

Born in St. Paul’s hospital in downtown Vancouver, I’ve been blessed to call many places in BC home – such as Okanagan, Squamish, and all over the lower mainland. I am super excited to now call Vancouver Island home. I moved to Courtenay in April 2020. I am passionate about the ocean and currently chasing a sailing dream. I have many activities in my life including riding my motorcycle, scuba, and training my cat Marley. I enjoy photography, and I’m interested in music, languages, and cooking.

Looking forward to meeting with you. Peace
