If there is one thing that I have learned in my 13 years of clinical practice as a massage therapist, it’s that the body has its own innate ability to heal itself. I believe it is my privilege to be able to facilitate and support this healing process by using the skill, knowledge and tools that I have gained through years of experience.
In the last decade I have worked as a part of a team of integrated health practitioners in Perth, ON. This experience has given me a broad perspective on the body and the understanding that sometimes it takes more than just one kind of therapy to resolve certain conditions. I have invested time in my own continuing education in modalities including; Orthopedic Massage, Pain Management, Myofascial Release Technique and Thai Yoga Massage to name just a few. This has enhanced my ability to assess and approach each individual clients’ needs with a treatment as unique as you are.
Whether you enjoy massage for its therapeutic benefits - targeting chronic areas, pain and injury, or simply enjoy the time for relaxation and stress relief, I look forward to helping you meet those goals. I feel very fortunate to be able to offer my services in the village of Richmond and to be practicing full time in the community in which I live and raise my family.

Since graduating with an Honors Massage Therapy diploma from Algonquin College in 2004, I have worked full time in my field with a loyal clientele. My passion for women's health has lead me to train extensively in; Pre & Post-Natal Massage, Labor Support, Child & Infant Massage Instruction as well as minor training with local lactation consultants (IBCLC), so I am able to assist in identifying feeding (breast & formula) concerns for my clients. I have attended both home and hospital births as a Labor support provider. I was a part time faculty member in the Massage Therapy program for over 5 years, concentrating in the student clinic and assisting with orthopedic assessment, treatment and pain management.
I prefer to incorporate relaxation and therapeutic techniques; Myofascial Release, Hot stones and trigger point therapy, to fully address my client's needs.
