Attended MH Vicars School of Massage in 2008-2010 and started business in March 2010. As a young entreprenuer started small and work my way into my role and gained experience and confidence through my years. always strived to do my best and givce the best quality experience with massage treatments. I decided that this was the profession for me at a very young age when I foubnd ot so rewarding to ease my grandparents and families' pain by just simple kneasding and massaging  of pained areas mainly in the shoulders and back. My nana, would always say I had a talent for it and that I had magic fingers :). I started my path to my career after taking a year off school after high school and decided to attend MH Vicars School of Massage. Where they refined my mind and trained my hands to relieve the pain of others which i find the most reward. When someone is in pain and I can assist the body in its cycle to self heal I find that so very rewarding to see you able to return to your normal daily life and improving your quality of life.I always strive to give you the best treatment and experience possible. Whether by advancing kmy career and learning knew techniques or refreshing my memory, to adding a better experience at my clinic be it adding to the ambience or improving supplies? linens? lotions? I also try my best to ensure that I purchase Canadian made products where possible. 

I wish to strive in furthering my career into Manual Osteopath Therapy and will look into that advancement in the near future. I find the best treatment is not to just focus on where the pain is but to ask the question of why the pain is there and where in the body is causing this dysfunction or dis-ease. When we treat the body as a whole rather than piecing the body apart, you can start to see why the body is reacting in incorrect ways and assist the body to slef heal in the correct path. From my undersatanding this is in essence the mindset of an osteopath.
