I was drawn to the Massage Therapy profession by my interest in anatomy and previous positive experiences with hands-on therapies. After graduating from OVCMT I worked as an RMT in Kamloops for 2 years before moving back to Vernon in June 2018. Currently I am also a supervisor and a teaching assistant at the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy (OVCMT).
During my treatments I use a variety of techniques allowing me to comfortably treat a variety conditions and adapt to your ideal pressure. My practice is focused on creating a safe supportive environment while helping patients find wellness through hands-on work. My treatment goals focus on balancing muscle tension to restore posture, reduce pain and regain ease of function.
Techniques I commonly use include:
- Swedish Massage
- Trigger Point Release
- Myo Fascial
- Muscle Energy
- Osteopathic and Biodynamic Techniques
Outside of work my time is often filled with camping, horseback riding, archery, and hiking with my dogs.
