interests in health and wellness. More specifically, the field of Massage Therapy, where the complications of naturally occurring events in the body or after-effects of injuries can be isolated and rehabilitated. I graduated, with honors, from the Registered Massage Therapy program at Everest College, and have been pursuing this career for almost five years.
I grew up in Newmarket and spent a short stint in Toronto, working at Simple Cures, a Chinese Medicine and Naturopathic clinic. I then decided to move my small family back to Newmarket and focus on refining my skills in Massage Therapy. Over two years I steadily grew my loyal client base at the much respected Newmarket Massage Therapy Clinic, before pursuing a lifelong dream of establishing my own business, with a goal of being an important part of our community and destination for those in need of restorative attention. I’ve treated clients of all ages, including children, with a constant aim to focus on the specific areas or concerns you’re dealing with. I want you to leave feeling as though you were listened to and your problems were addressed. Your health is my purpose.

MASSAGE THERAPY BENEFITS
The health benefits of Massage Therapy extend beyond simply soothing aches and pains. Massage Therapy Can Relieve Stress. Stress is a prevalent component in today’s fast-paced world which can negatively impact on an individual’s health and well-being. Massage therapy has been shown to be a means by which stress can be reduced significantly on physical and psychological levels.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle.
Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury.
People often feel sore for one to two days after deep tissue massage.
Relaxation massage is a gentle Swedish massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes to help you relax. The massage therapist will move at a slower pace and use lighter pressure.
There is less emphasis on working out serious adhesions or “knots” in the muscle tissue, which can be uncomfortable and cause some people to tense up against the pressure.
Also called prenatal massage, pregnancy massage is becoming increasingly popular with expectant mothers. Massage therapists who are certified in pregnancy massage know the proper way to position and support the woman’s body during the massage, and how to modify techniques.
Pregnancy massage is used to reduce stress, decrease swelling, relieve aches and pains, and reduce anxiety and depression. The massage is customized to a woman’s individual needs.
