I graduated with honours from The Massage Therapy College of Manitoba in Winnipeg, and have been a Registered Massage Therapist since June 2001.
I moved to the lovely city of Saskatoon in August 2007 and in June 2008 opened my own office in a small space across from the SIAST Kelsey Campus.
December of 2007 I suffered a severe weight training injury and could get no relief from massage, acupuncture or chiropractic. Where I was introduced the brilliance of The BodyTalk System. Turned out a lot of those injuries were caused from emotional baggage I brought with me from leaving Winnipeg, after my first session I saw an 85% improvement, and I was hooked! During that first session, I knew I was witnessing the new revolution of health care and I knew I had to be a part of it! I always knew there was something missing in health care, in all of the modalities, we weren't getting in the big picture. To have it blatantly laid out, that all of our systems are completely interdependent, and must be treated in a syncronistic way for lasting results, made all the pieces fit for me.
In March of 2009 I embarked on my journey to becoming a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner. I finally Certified as a BodyTalk Practitioner in December 2009, with the main goal of marrying The BodyTalk System with my Massage training. It has been a challenge but I have done it successfully. It now allows me to address the physical complaints of the client and take it to another level by being able to open the communication lines that need to be re-established in order to heal all the aspects of the issue!
To date the BodyTalk courses I have taken include:
MindScape, Fundamentals parts 1&2, Fundamentals Integration, Principles of Consciousness, BioDynamics, Lymphatic Drainage & Applied anatomy and physiology, Macrocosmic BodyMind, Matrix Dynamics, Structural Integration for BodyTalkers, BodyTalk Orthopedic Evaluation, Advanced BodyTalk Protocol and Procedure, and PaRama Unit 1.
Presently I am living my dream! Having moved to Penticton in 2014 I opened my own office October 15th 2016, and am focusing on further developing my BodyTalk and Massage Skills with more advanced BodyTalk training.
