On Friday, April 16th 'enhanced' emergency stay-at-home orders were issued for the entire province. RMTs are regulated healthcare professionals and are therefore permitted to remain open in order to provide necessary and essential care when the anticipated benefits of treatment outweigh the risks to the client and therapist.
At this time I am asking all my clients to review the following criteria, and thoughtfully consider whether this treatment is essential for you:
Is this appointment to support pain management?
Is this a treatment of an injury or chronic condition?
Will your health (mental or physical) decline without treatment?
If you determine your appointment is not essential at this time please email me. If you choose to cancel you will be placed at the top of my waitlist. Additionally, I will be closely monitoring our local numbers/situation- if anything changes in regards to a scheduled appointment you have, I will email you directly.
Clients must wear a well-fitting mask for the entire time in the office/treatment.
Currently only booking appointments for existing clients.
A COVID Pre-Screening survey must be completed via email at least 24hrs prior to arriving at the office. Please carefully read all questions and answer honestly.
A second screening will occur at the time of your treatment.
Reschedule your appointment if you (or anyone in your household) are feeling at all unwell.
I have been a practicing Registered Massage Therapist in Guelph since 2011 when I graduated from Lambton College and became a member of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario.
With strong hands and a compassionate spirit, I have always enjoyed helping and connecting with people, and my career as a Massage Therapist allows me to do just that! I believe that therapeutic massage can be relaxing as well as productive; and that if you are able to unwind and relax on the table, you will be more in tune with what your body is telling you. I think massage can play a beautiful role in a person's overall wellness and is a great tool for general maintenance. It is important to me that you feel safe and comfortable while you are in my office, so try to approach each appointment with genuine care and empathy.
When I am not working, I have the joy of being a wife and mom to our young family. I also love listening to podcasts/audiobooks, drinking tea, exploring watercolors, and I have a (not so) secret love for all things Royal!
I look forward to working with you!
Traditional Swedish Massage
Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body including, muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage Therapy is a clinically-oriented healthcare option that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions.
Massage therapy can be an important part of your health maintenance plan by:
Reducing or eliminating pain.
Improving joint mobility.
Improving lymphatic drainage.
Reducing muscular tension.
Massage therapy can be used for the treatment of both acute and chronic conditions. RMTs can work with a wide variety of patients, of all ages, in the treatment of illness, injury rehabilitation and disability.
Massage Therapists today use their knowledge of physiology and anatomy to combine traditional Swedish and modern massage therapy techniques with other therapies to treat their clients. There has been a wide variety of research, published in peer reviewed journals, proving the benefits of massage therapy for various conditions.
