about me

Working as a RMT (Registered Massage Therapist) was a second career path for me. In my earlier years, I studied Photography & Film at Concordia University in Montréal, as well as at various institutions in Toronto. Through various job opportunities and a series of life events I switched gears and explored other facets of interest. Living healthy and holistically was one of those areas and massage therapy was apart of that. Through my own successful experiences with receiving massage along with a bit of research, my direction was clear.

I graduated from Sutherland Chan's Massage Therapy program in 2005 and have been an active Registered Massage Therapist since. I worked in a variety of clinics and before long opened up my own business in the heart of Bloor West Village. Over the past decade I have obtained added certifications in Fascial Manipulation Programs with Thomas Myers & Bruce McKinnon, Craniosacral Therapy with Upledger Institute, and Shiatsu with the Shiatsu School of Canada. All of which are applied in treatment. In 2013, I obtained a Pfilates Instruction Certification and am working towards creating a pelvic floor workshop for women who are recovering or enhancing their pelvic floor strength.

I treat sport and non-sport injuries, reduce TMJ dysfunctions and assist in post-surgical rehabilitation. The most common request is relaxation. Massage therapy, without a doubt, reduces anxiety and associated muscle aches and pains. As well, I truly enjoy treating women in pregnancy for I am a mom myself and have experienced the benefits that massage therapy provides!

Practicing Hatha & Ashtanga Yoga has been a part of my daily life for ~ 20 years. I have recently obtained my 200 Hr Yoga Instruction Certification (through Yogaspace Toronto) and look forward to teaching both privately and in some local facilities soon. Much of what I learn from this discipline is interwoven in how I treat and in how I provide self-care already. My fascination for the human body as a whole, let alone its anatomy and how the body moves, has always been the underlying drive to all of my work.
