Biography

Member of the College of Massage Therapist of Ontario Angela grew up in Barrie Ontario. Her love for life has led her to achieving goals that many others only dream of. One of her most notable achievements was winning a full national scholarship for the Massage Therapy Program at Centennial College, Toronto. As an active member of the community, Angela derive deep satisfaction from helping others, naturally leading her to a career in healthcare.   As a practicing Registered Massage Therapist since 2005, her clinical experience has helped many people in a variety of ways. Some of her clinical focus includes stress reduction, decreasing the severity and frequency of headaches, improving mobility, reducing insomnia, and pain management. She develop individualized treatment plans, perform clinical assessments such as orthopaedic and neurological testing, and create self-care plans for patients. Noticing changes and improvements in her patients is a part of her job that Angela finds particularly satisfying.    In January 2012, Angela dded a new modality into her massage therapy practice. Energy within the body has always fascinated her. Angela also got her certification for Reiki level 1. Reiki is an alternative touch therapy believed to be founded in Tibet and later introduced into Japan. It is a form of meditation that is used to treat physical and mental ailments. In English, Reiki means universal life energy. The practitioner uses light touch to channel energy to the recipient. Reiki works on a physical, mental, and emotional level by restoring the lost balance between mind, body and spirit. Angela has introduced techniques learned from Reiki into her massage therapy practice. In 2017, Angela was approached by Centennial College to aid three visually impaired students through the Massage Therapy Program. I work one on one with these individuals, as well as in labs to develop their Massage Therapy and Assessment skills. These students make Angela proud on a daily basis. She is honored to be an Educational Assistant and tutor at Centennial College. When Angela is not working as a massage therapist, she is helping tutor massage students. She assisted in the understanding of Neuroanatomy and Neurophysiology, Massage Theory, Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, Healthcare Bi-laws, Anatomy, Remedial Exercises and Therapeutic Relationships.

    Angela is a great massage therapist who takes care of his clients' goals and explains everything in detail so we have a better knowledge and understanding of how our body works and what we need to keep doing to maintain a healthy physique and lifestyle. She is personable and professional, making you feel at ease the minute she enters the room. I suffer from perpetual back ache. I have noticed huge benefits in my range of motion and pain reduction.This is no doubt because of her amazing knowledge of the body and her ability to use different methods to get results. She is so knowledgeable and friendly, organized, on time and amazing at what she does.I always leave Angela’s massage sanctuary feeling both energized and relaxed. She is soothing, calming, and a great human being that actually cares about people's well-being. I can’t thank and praise her enough for her healing energy and will continue to recommend her to anyone interested in massage therapy!

    👍Great Service. Centre needs upgrading ..things look old. Fresh and new Linens would make experience even better. Angela was caring and understands her patients and their needs. She did not rush and tried to help to try and get to the root cause of my pain.

  • Gentle and stong touch at the same time
    Reviewed on April 25th, 2013  •  Verified patient
    Angela is so knowledgable at what she does, and she can be gentle and strong at the same time! I had been going to RMT for years, not only for relaxation, but for neck, and shoulder pains, since I have a desk job. After a session with Angela it feels like your body is renewed! She gets all the pressure points and know where the pain is! She is amazing! Try her and you'll feel the difference between her and the rest of the RMT!
