What Will You Do To Reach Your Peak?

If you are happy with the results you are currently getting with your other therapists (chiro, physio, massage), that's great. Stay with what works! Otherwise, I can help you to reach your Peak in Health, Performance, and Recovery.

First, I am a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). My treatments qualify for massage insurance. I am also Canada's first Master Myoskeletal Therapist (MMT), the only one in Alberta, and I have Extended the Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy (MAT) with additional techniques that follow the MAT principles. Although I perform all the standard types of massage offered according to the spa's menu, I SPECIALIZE in using MAT(E) techniques and principles with a mat based, clothes on treatment, to provide very effective outcomes for Chronic  Pain, Injury Rehab, Stress, Mobility, Posture, and Work/Sport Performance issues. The treatments are characterized by Slow, Deliberate, Gentle, and Pain-Free techniques. Where traditional massage is mostly push, my MAT(E) treatments are a more balanced combination of Push, Pull, Compress, and Passive Movement.

MAT(E) is very complementary with other Modalities and Treatments, and is often a good Alternative to them. For example, I can treat almost any issue a physical therapist or chiro can, just differently – gentler, and probably safer.

I have more training in a short time than most massage therapists get in their entire career. This allows me to pick the best techniques and customize treatments for each patient. “When all you have is a hammer, everything tends to look like a nail.” My toolbox continues to grow – If I am not training, I am reviewing. Note: I only do Evidence Based Treatments, and Nothing Invasive! I use a holistic approach (Whole Person, not WooWoo).

I am often the one called on to treat the owners, managers, and staff, as well as their families and friends. I treat massage and physical therapists, nurses, and more. (I have Therapists who bring me their family members and BFFs for treatment - though they won't permit me to use their names for obvious reasons!).

What My Patients are Saying:

You take Therapeutic Massage to New Heights!
