"Earning my Honours BA at the University of Toronto gave me the knowledge and interest in the mind-body connection and its role in health and healing that led me to pursue a career in therapeutic touch and massage therapy.
After becoming licensed as a Registered Massage Therapist with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario I went on to practice and gain experience in a variety of settings and with a wide variety of bodies. After 10 years of studying and working with the body it was time to dive into the spirit and the mind-body connection so I returned to the University of Toronto and completed my diploma in Clinical Hypnosis at the Centre for Continuing Studies. This gave me a deeper understanding of the subconscious mind and its role in our general health and its ability to mobilize or impede the inner resources necessary for self healing.
My experience as a manual therapist has ranged from clinical massage with a focus on neuromuscular rehabilitation, therapeutic and deep tissue treatments to deeply relaxing treatments as featured in meditation spas. I've been a Teacher at the Royal Canadian College for Massage Therapy and I have actively practiced in a wide variety of onsite settings. Now my practice has evolved to include guided meditation, muscle testing and hypnosis to further enhance our access to the subconscious and the mind-body biofeedback that plays such a vital role in our health and healing.
It is my goal to offer a safe space where humans of all ages, complexions, shapes, and sizes may find peace, quietude and a place that encourages inner healing and where mind and body can reconnect.
Currently, I run a full time practice where I strive to help people harness their innate healing capabilities using the mind-body connection and its brilliant (yet misunderstood) biofeedback mechanisms. I incorporate registered massage therapy with guided meditations, muscle testing, hypnosis and neuroscience (ask about our Muse for real time EEG measurement during meditations and hypnosis) in my treatments. I also run and oversee A Vital Touch Massage Therapy which is a collective of independant RMT's and massage practitioners along with my life partner Marlon.
I am proud to say that I am passionate about what I do and feel honoured every time I am given the opportunity to contribute to the healing journey of another. I recognize that all true healing is indeed self healing, but I hope to aid and help speed things along the way!"
