Hello and welcome. I am a Registered Massage Therapist in Orillia, Ontario that offers mobile massage services at your location or alternatively in my Orillia studio.
**I provide official receipts after each treatment that can be used to make claims for extended health benefits.**
What Is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is one of the oldest methods of healing, as the practice of therapeutic massage can be traced back nearly 4,000 years. Statistics from both Health Canada 1 and the American Massage Therapy Association 2 show that millions of North Americans use it today.
Massage therapy refers to a comprehensive health management strategy focusing on the application of various techniques to positively affect the soft tissues and joints of the body. Massage techniques most commonly include pressure and compression, kneading, frictioning, and mobilizing to improve the health and condition of the muscles, tendons, skin, fascia or connective tissue of the body.
Today massage is thought of as a holistic therapy that complements medical treatment. The "Physician's Guide to Therapeutic Massage" shows that massage can decrease pain, improve range of motion, improve mood, aid in the circulation of blood and lymph flow, reduce muscle and joint soreness, and improve sleep.

I have a background in the performing arts, singing acting, and dance. I also worked as a mobility specialist in the home care equipment industry fitting people with walkers, customized wheelchairs, and transfer aids. I also have training in psychology and volunteered as a telephone crisis counselor.
Massage Therapy has been a wonderful career and I love what I do. Helping to heal the body, mind, and soul as a massage therapist is truly fulfilling. It is as much a science as it is an art. Massage is an ancient practice, yet we are discovering more and more of its benefits each day. I look forward to working with you to discover these benefits together.
