What Brought Me To This Work?

What brought me to this work?

I took my first yoga class at the age of 12, when my mom enrolled me in a community yoga class during a family vacation to Salt Spring Island. That sparked a journey of learning that would continue into adulthood. Yoga has woven in and out of my life’s journey, bringing much love and balance to my life, and continues to inform and inspire me.

I completed my first yoga teacher training in Nova Scotia in 2012 and I am grateful to be able to share the gift of yoga with others. I have additional certifications in children’s yoga, chair yoga, pre- and post- natal yoga, including yoga for expecting parents and a fertility yoga training.

Curiosity brought me to my first Reiki training in 2012. This was my initiation into the world of energy healing and I have not stopped being curious and wanting to learn more.

I have completed levels I and II Jikiden Reiki, levels I and II Usui Reiki and levels I and II Holy Fire Reiki. I became a Holy Fire Reiki Master in 2021. I have an additional certification in Reiki for fertility, pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I was introduced to Aqualead and became an Aqualead Master in 2022. I incorporate both of these modalities in my energy healing treatments. I also teach Reiki level I and II.

I first became interested in Massage Therapy while in my initial yoga teacher training. Some of my colleagues were RMTs and I was awed by their knowledge of anatomy and body movement. My second YTT was heavily focused on anatomy and movement and I was hooked. When I moved back home to Ontario, I knew the time was right to return to school and pursue this goal.

I graduated from OCHT and became a Registered Massage Therapist in 2021. I completed a certification in Massage for Pregnancy while still in school and did a placement on the High-Risk Obstetrics floor at Sunnybrook Hospital. I completed the majority of my outreach hours in a hospice setting, working with palliative clients and their caregivers. This was very fulfilling work and I hope to continue this in my community.

I also have additional certifications in Cupping Therapy, Hot Stone Massage, Warm Bamboo Massage, Indian Head Massage, Indian Foot Massage, Gua Sha Facial Massage, Rapid Neurofascial Reset and Myofascial Release.

I also offer Registered Massage Therapy with Energy Healing. Both Reiki and Aqualead blend beautifully into your Registered Massage Therapy treatment and create a wonderfully healing and relaxing treatment.

I have always been drawn to the spiritual world. Since returning to Niagara in 2017, I have focused on cultivating a spiritual connection and developing a deep trust in my intuition. In 2023, I completed an Intuitive Empath and Psychic Medium course. I offer Intuitive Energy Healing Sessions whereby I connect with Spirit and, using my intuition, tap into what you need out of the session. Any insights that I pick up, I will share at the end of the session.

I am completing my third Somatic Movement Teacher Training in July 2023 and love sharing Somatic Movements with my clients and my students. If you have been on my massage table, you have done these! I offer them as homecare all the time. Somatic Movements are based in neuroscience and are slow and gentle movements that are designed to reduce pain and tension, free your body from it’s holding patterns and help you move more freely and fluidly. I teach group Somatic Movement classes and also offer private sessions. These movements truly help you feel good in your body!

When I’m not working with clients I enjoy spending time outdoors. I am happiest by the water and in my spare time that’s where you’ll find me: hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking/canoeing/paddleboarding.

I love what I do and love helping clients feel more aligned in their body, mind and spirit.
