My name is Melanie. I graduated from the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy with over 3,000 hours of massage training. I have recently joined the Arise Chiropractic Team, replacing my friend and colleague, Cari Hardy, who moved to Calgary with her new husband. I love being a part of such a dynamic and wellness based team of professionals all focused on keeping healthy, naturally!
I believe in the body’s ability to heal itself, and that massage therapy is one of many paths to restoring health and wellness in the body. I am a strong supporter of self care and preventative maintenance, and I believe that together we can achieve your health goals.
In addition to massage, I enjoy staying active and creative by running, hiking, swimming, yoga, cooking and reading.
I have trained in:
- Spa relaxation massage and hot stone massage
- Swedish massage
- Deep tissue
- Sports massage
- Trigger point therapy
- Myofacial release
- Level One Manual Lymph Drainage from Dr. Vodder School International
