Registered Massage Therapy
Throughout your treatment I will focus on your needs and comfort level whether you are looking to decrease your stress with a relaxational treatment or decrease your pain and restrictions from an acute/ chronic condition with a more therapeutic approach. I'm proficient in treating strains, sprains, acute/chronic soft tissue injuries, fascial restrictions, tendonitis, arthritic pain, pre and post natal, migraines, tension headaches ,TMJ syndrome and sports injuries.
I feel providing home care such as hydrotherapy and remedial exercises (stretching and strengthening) can be very beneficial on helping clients reach their goals as well as maintaining them.
Massage Therapy offers a better quality of life. Book yourself an appointment today and I will tailor a treatment plan that is best for you and your body.
The Rolf Method of Structural Integration
What is Structural Integration?
Structural Integration (SI) is a 10 session series that reorganizes the body in the field of gravity. Working the body as a whole from Left to Right, Top to Bottom and Inside - Out.
During the sessions we work with the fascial system and teach your body what is structurally correct so you can maintain the changes that were created.
What is Fascia?
Fascia is a connective tissue that supports the structure of the body from head to toe. It surrounds all the structures in the body - muscle, tendons, ligaments, bones, veins, arteries, organs and nerves.
The layers of fascia should glide on each other, with injuries and chronic stress on the system the layers adhere and stick to each other, altering free movement and optimal function.
Is Structural Integration Painful?
The techniques used are a soft touch that is effective in releasing the fascia of the body. There might be some discomfort in some areas because of chronic injury but should never be excruciating.
Goals of Structural Integration
The goals of SI are to produce a more resilient, higher energy system and to establish balanced relationships in gravity. When we are balanced, gravity travels through our centre rather than pulling on various points in the body.
A person who has been structurally integrated will experience better adaptability to stress, increased flexibility, improved biomechanics, graceful, more fluid and effortless movement, increased energy, and greater self-awareness. A body that is rigid and poorly balanced lacks resilience.
A body that is flexible and in dynamic relationship with its environment bends with stress, and springs back like a blade of grass.

What to wear
I ask that you wear “viewing clothes”.
For women: stretchy yoga shorts and a sports bra, underwear and bra if you are comfortable or 2 piece bathing suit.
For men: briefs, shorts. Shorts need to be stretchy and mid thigh length.
You will be up and down off the table and moving around during the sessions.
What to Expect at your First Visit
A health history form will be provided for your completion. I will review the form with you, once completed a structural assessment will be done. Before and after photos will be an option. If photos are taken you will stand in front of a postural grid in your "viewing clothes". Seeing your own changes will be very motivating and uplifting.
