Biography

I have been practicing massage therapy for nearly 10 years. I graduated from ICT Northumberland College in Halifax, NS in 2006. In addition to massage therapy training, I have also completed my third year of the five-year osteopathic program at the Canadian College of Osteopathy in April 2010. This program has provided me with many tools applicable to my massage therapy practice, above and beyond my massage therapy training, enabling me to provide my clients with a more comprehensive approach towards their goals of treatment. Whether you have specific problems that you want addressed, or just want to de-stress with a relaxation massage, I welcome the opportunity work with you to customize a treatment that will best help you return you to a more balanced and pain-free state.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I have nearly 10 years of massage therapy experience in treating a wide variety of conditions. In addition to offering regular swedish massage techniques, I also incorporate techniques I have learned in 3 years of Osteopathy training. This has enabled me to provide more than just a regular massage experience and can help you reach your treatment goals.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I specialize in soft tissue treatments, using Swedish massage. I have been doing these techniques for nearly 10 years. I can do deep pressure if needed and required, as well as a softer more relaxing treatment. I am also knowledgeable of stretches, exercises and home care for relief in between appointments. Some of the modalities that osteopathy focussed are craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, muscle energy, joint mobilizations, visceral manipulation and lymphatic drainage.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I am happy to collaborate with other practitioners to ensure continuity of care and to provide the most comprehensive treatment possible.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

Headaches and migraines respond really well to some of the different techniques that I offer. Also enjoy general muscle aches, pains, and tension. Stress reduction and body relaxation is great for overall health and wellness.

    I saw Michael for pain in my shoulder that I had been dealing with for two weeks. He helped alleviate the pain and relax the muscles that were compensating for the injured one in my shoulder. He answered all my questions and was very helpful.
