Massage Therapy

Massage therapists employ a variety of hands-on techniques to assess and treat the soft tissues and joints of the body. Improved circulation of blood and lymph, decreased pain and inflammation, improved mobility, relaxation and stress reduction are all positive effects of therapeutic massage. *We require first time patients to book a minimum of 45 minutes. *


Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a non-invasive, safe and effective manual therapy. It is a complete system of assessment, treatment and integration of all the body's systems and tissues. Osteopathic Manual Practitioners maintain, improve or restore the normal physiological function of interrelated body structures and systems. **FIRST TIME OSTEO PATIENTS require a 55 minute appointment **


Naturopathy

Naturopathic medicine provides a non-invasive approach to health that promotes the body's innate healing potential. Naturopathic Doctors seek to find the cause of illness rather than simply suppressing the symptoms that are present.

Sports was a big part of Alex’s life growing up. While she participated in a variety of sports from volleyball to ringette, Alex started to learn about physiology and how her body reacted to short term and long term injuries as a high level athlete. Her experience as a healthcare professional began during her tenure in Ryerson University’s nursing program, building a strong foundation of knowledge in the realm of anatomy, physiology, pathotherapeutics and pharmacology. During her time at Ryerson University Alex was also the co-captain of the women’s varsity volleyball team. Having suffered several injuries of her own throughout her 4 year varsity career, she was able to gain a personal understanding of the importance of self-care and gained insight on the various therapy techniques to accelerate her rehabilitation.

Alex’s path lead her to attend the Sutherland-Chan Massage Therapy school where she gained the knowledge and skills with Swedish massage techniques through various student clinics and direct work with patients who experienced various injuries including spinal cord injuries and sports related injuries. As a RMT, Alex’s main goal is to inspire a fundamental shift in how we perceive our own health with a stronger focus on the creation of wellness outside of direct treatment of an illness. She hopes to create a body awareness within her clients in order to help improve their quality of life through decreased stress levels, relieving various pains and tensions, improving functional movement and overall injury prevention. It’s of the utmost importance to her to have her clients walk away from their session with a greater knowledge of their own bodies in order for the rehabilitation process to continue in their every day lives.

Areas of focus: Swedish/deep tissue massage, myofascial release, sports massage and pregnancy massage
