Biography

Natalie earned her undergraduate degree in Exercise Science from Middle Tennessee State University, where she received a full athletic scholarship and competed as a NCAA Division I collegiate tennis athlete. After 2 years teaching abroad in Thailand, she returned to Canada to pursue massage therapy. She graduated from Sutherland Chan School & Teaching Clinic and has been working as a Registered Massage Therapist and Certified Tennis Coach at Toronto Tennis City where she teaches competitive and progressive adult and junior tennis programs.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

It's great to work with all different cases. If I can get them feeling better than when they first come in, then that gives me a real sense of accomplishment and motivates me to continue working hard in my practice.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I enjoy working with the body and helping others achieve results within our massage therapy treatments. I try to integrate my educational background in prescribing remedial exercises and stretches to assist others in maintaining a healthy body and encourage my patients to continue a healthy lifestyle through proper self-care, exercise and nutrition.

What are the top 3 treatments that you specialize in?

My top three specialties are myofascial release, trigger point therapy and joint mobilizations. I provide a rhythmic flow to help patients relax their body and feel comfortable within our treatment. I also have experience with myofascial cupping therapy, indie head massage and hot stone therapy to add to my variety of techniques.

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

As a caring practitioner, I provide my patients with a relaxing and comfortable environment. I treat every patient specific to their needs and try to help them achieve realistic goals through effective manual therapy and treatment planning. I try to provide the best care possible and enjoy helping others towards better health.

  • Great experience!

    I had a great experience at Step Up, and Natalie was great! I did not have specific pain, but more just general tightness... and I left feeling loose and pain-free! At the end of the session, Natalie sat down with me, and reviewed areas she found to be especially tight, and provided ways that I could improve this going forward. The atmosphere was extremely welcoming, and I will definitely be back!
