EVIDENCE-BASED THERAPEUTIC TREATMENT

What Conditions I Treat

As an Alternative Medicine Practitioner, I am a Registered Massage Therapist recognized under BC Healthcare and a recommended Practitioner by Pain BC.   My practice focuses on treating poor tissue health resulting in chronic pain, orthopedic injuries, and stress for the purpose of recovery by releasing restrictions & improving tissue quality for balance & function.  Patients will feel change post-treatment.
 

How I Treat

Following an evidence-based practice, I use my clinical expertise along with research evidence to facilitate recovery to improve balance & function.  I have a holistic approach that is primarily myofascial  (soft-tissue manipulation) to source out the problem while relieving symptoms.  My approach to treatment involves focusing on the nervous system to bring about neurophysiological change so the patient can feel a difference by

  1. relieving symptoms, such as pain, soreness, discomfort, tightness, stress, and inflammation

  2. restoring homeostasis in & around the nervous system

  3. regaining balance & function, and a sense of ease.  

  4. promoting a relaxation response: slowing down the heart & breathing rate, decreasing blood pressure, decreasing stress hormone production, and releasing muscle tension
     

In conjunction with  regular exercise/movement therapy, I am here to support & facilitate mental wellness, tissue health & recovery to help you feel better, live better, and move better.  

NOTE: therapeutic treatment is one piece of the puzzle to restorative function and improved quality of life.  Nutrition & movement therapy support proper function of the nervous system, as well as mental and muscular health.
