  • What inspired you to become a registered massage therapist, and how long have you been practicing?
    Since 2011, I have been practicing full-time as a registered massage therapist. My interest in massage therapy was piqued during my time as a wrestler at the University of Regina, where I was fortunate to work with an exceptional RMT who helped me manage many injuries. After earning a degree in kinesiology, I decided that adding massage therapy to my skill set would be an ideal combination for helping people improve their mobility and overall sense of well-being.
  • What types of massage therapy do you offer, and how do they differ from each other?
    My specialization lies in RAPID Neurofascial Reset, an advanced massage therapy technique that targets pain and mobility issues caused by stress, strain, and trauma. RAPID is an active, therapeutic approach that works by targeting the central nervous system to alleviate tension and restrictions within the body. It is based on the idea that the nervous system plays a critical role in regulating movement patterns, and that by optimizing its function, we can promote healing and reduce pain. Compared to other massage therapy techniques, RAPID stands out for its ability to provide faster relief for both acute and chronic conditions. By using targeted pressure and manual manipulation of the soft tissues with active and passive movement, RAPID can help release tension and restrictions in the fascia and trigger points, which can cause pain and mobility issues. This focused approach typically requires less time per session, allowing clients to experience more immediate results and get back to their daily activities sooner.
  • How does massage therapy help manage pain, and what types of pain can it be effective for?
    Massage therapy can be effective in managing pain by increasing blood flow, promoting relaxation, and reducing inflammation in the body. Massage therapy can help relieve different types of pain, including muscle pain, joint pain, and even nerve pain caused by conditions like sciatica. It can also be effective for managing pain associated with chronic conditions like fibromyalgia, as well as pain caused by injuries or postural imbalances.
  • How often should I schedule a massage therapy session, and how many sessions will I need to see results?
    The frequency of treatment for each patient depends on the individual nature of their condition. However, in general, patients often experience noticeable results within three to four RAPID Neurofascial Reset treatments. This approach is designed to be efficient and effective, so patients can feel relief from their pain and improve their mobility as quickly as possible.
  • What should I expect during a typical massage therapy session, and how long does a session typically last?
    At my massage therapy practice, I prioritize personalized care to ensure that each patient's unique needs and goals are met. Depending on your condition, your session may last 30 minutes or less, and I typically recommend addressing one problem per treatment for maximum effectiveness. I will begin your session with an initial assessment and a brief conversation about your condition, so I can better understand your needs and develop a tailored treatment plan. During your session, I will utilize a range of advanced manual therapy techniques, including RAPID Neurofascial Reset, Myofascial Release, and Trigger Point Therapy, to target the source of your pain and promote healing. Throughout your session, I will communicate with you to ensure your comfort and satisfaction. By the end of your session, you should feel relaxed, rejuvenated, and closer to achieving your goals for pain relief and improved well-being.
  • How can I prepare for my massage therapy session, and what should I wear?
    I recommend being prepared to answer questions about your current condition and health/medical history. This information is important in helping me understand your unique needs and develop a tailored treatment plan that best supports your recovery goals. Additionally, I want our patients to feel comfortable and at ease during their session, which is why we do not require them to disrobe. Our treatments are provided through or around clothing, and we recommend wearing comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that allows for easy movement.
  • What types of clients do you typically work with, and what types of conditions can you help with?
    At my massage therapy practice, I work with a diverse range of clients, from athletes dealing with sports injuries to individuals seeking relief from chronic pain conditions. I specialize in providing advanced techniques, including RAPID Neurofascial Reset, Myofascial Release, and Trigger Point Therapy, to help alleviate pain and improve mobility. Some of the conditions I can help with include back pain, neck pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, and fibromyalgia. By working closely with each patient to understand their unique needs and goals, I develop customized treatment plans designed to address the root cause of their pain and promote healing. Whether you are dealing with a sports injury, chronic pain, or simply seeking to improve your overall well-being, my services are designed to help you achieve your specific goals and enjoy better health and mobility.
  • Are there any contraindications or risks associated with massage therapy, and who should not receive massage therapy?
    Yes, there are some contraindications and risks associated with massage therapy. Some conditions may make it unsafe or uncomfortable to receive massage therapy, and it is important to consult with a licensed massage therapist prior to treatment to ensure that it is safe for you. Some contraindications and risks associated with massage therapy may include: Recent injuries or surgeries: In some cases, massage therapy may be contraindicated for individuals who have recently had an injury or surgery, as it may interfere with the healing process or cause discomfort. Blood clots: Massage therapy may be contraindicated for individuals with blood clots or a history of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), as it may increase the risk of blood clots or dislodging existing clots. Infections or illnesses: If you have a fever, skin infection, or contagious illness, it is recommended to postpone massage therapy until you have fully recovered.
  • How do your rates compare to other massage therapy providers, and do you offer any discounts or packages for regular clients?
    As a healthcare practitioner, I prioritize the provision of high-quality, personalized care to each of my patients. Rather than offering packages or discounts as a commodity, I am committed to providing individualized treatments tailored to each patient's unique needs and goals. While some massage therapy practices may offer discounts or packages as a way to entice customers, I believe that this approach does not align with my values as a healthcare practitioner. Instead, I aim to provide comprehensive, effective care that supports my patients' overall well-being and helps them achieve their specific goals for pain relief and improved mobility. If you have any questions about my approach to massage therapy or would like to learn more about the benefits of personalized treatment, please don't hesitate to reach out.
  • How do you stay up-to-date with the latest advances and research in massage therapy and pain relief techniques?
    As a dedicated healthcare practitioner, I believe it is essential to stay up-to-date with the latest advances and research in massage therapy and pain relief techniques. To ensure that I am providing the most effective and evidence-based care to my patients, I regularly attend workshops, seminars, and continuing education courses to deepen my knowledge and skills. I also engage in ongoing self-study and research to stay informed about the latest developments in my field. By staying current with the latest research and techniques, I am better equipped to provide my patients with the highest quality of care and help them achieve their specific goals for pain relief and improved mobility.
  • What do you find most rewarding about your work as a massage therapist, and what do you hope clients take away from their sessions with you?
    As a massage therapist, what I find most rewarding about my work is helping my patients feel better and improve their overall quality of life. There is nothing more fulfilling than seeing a patient leave my clinic feeling more comfortable and mobile than when they arrived. My goal is to provide compassionate care that helps my patients achieve their specific goals for pain relief and improved mobility, and I take great pride in helping them feel their best. When it comes to what I hope clients take away from their sessions with me, I hope they feel empowered to take an active role in their own healing and recovery. I believe that education and communication are key to effective treatment, and I strive to help my patients understand the underlying causes of their pain and how they can best support their own recovery. By working together as a team, I believe that we can achieve better outcomes and help my patients enjoy better health and mobility. Ultimately, I hope that each of my patients feels heard, respected, and supported throughout their treatment, and that they leave my clinic feeling more comfortable, mobile, and empowered to take charge of their own health and well-being.
