Registered Massage Therapist
Your Wellness Begins Here
I graduated with Honours from ICT Kikkawa School of Massage Therapy in Toronto.
In my massage practice I focus on improving quality of life for individuals experiencing pain or dysfunction. I tailor each treatment to the comfort of every person.
I have a special interest in the benefits of massage therapy for pelvic health and I work closely with pelvic floor physiotherapists. This type of massage addresses the external muscles and tissues which, in turn, have an effect on the internal pelvic region.
For many years I massaged palliative patients and cancer patients and their caregivers in Halifax at The Sunshine Room, Victoria General Hospital, and at Halifax Hospice. I currently offer massage to palliative patients at Valley Hospice in Kentville.
Massage contributes to the vital role in gaining and maintaining optimum pelvic health. Massage therapists DO NOT assess or treat the pelvic floor internally.
Your pelvic floor is a group of muscles that form a hammock from your pubic bone to your tailbone. Pelvic floor muscle tone can change due to stress, childbirth, or the aging process. External muscles such as the glutes, hamstrings, hip flexors, adductors (inner thigh), and abdominals attach directly to the pelvis. These can be released or strengthened using external non-invasive massage techniques to address common complaints such as low back pain, hip pain, sacro-iliac (SI) joint dysfunction, pubic bone, tailbone, and abdominal wall conditions.
