Sarah graduated from Algonquin College’s Massage Therapy program with Honours in 2004, since then, they’ve explored just about every facet of massage. Over the course of the last 14 years, they’ve worked with professional and amateur athletes, people who experience chronic pain, acute injuries, therapeutic and deep tissue treatments, pregnancy and post natal care, children, youth and adolescents, palliative care, chronic stress/burnout/anxiety/depression, and clients who have experienced concussions and concussion syndrome. Each one of Sarah’s massage therapy treatments incorporates the use of Hot Stones, giving even the deepest massages a relaxing feel.
“My passion for massage therapy began at an early age. At 13, I learned about massage therapy and knew in that moment that this would be part of my path in helping others. Over time my specialities have evolved based on client needs. Today we are seeing a lot of people who need so much more then “just a massage”, so my treatments now are very holistic. We look at the physical issues, mental, emotional, and spiritual health of the person, and we create a treatment based on the needs of the individual. No one is text book, so each person who enters the treatment room gets a unique experience. Some clients want to talk about and address the physical issues, some are curious about the link between our emotions and our body and how we can release what lives inside. Others want to disconnect from the crazy-every-life-stress by connecting inward, and that is what I facilitate. We created a special style of Massage Therapy called Compassionate Touch. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines Compassion as “sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it”. Compassionate Touch Massage Therapy Treatments do just that, we look at what a client comes in with and we look for ways to help them alleviate it. We do this by incorporating Massage Therapy with Hot stones, Aromatherapy, Reiki, Breathwork and sometimes Guided Mediation. Compassionate Touch massage therapy treatments are covered by extended health benefits and can be offered as deep tissue, therapeutic or relaxation.”
