Registered Massage Therapist
Integrative Energy Healer / Yoga Teacher
Founder of The Mastectomy Guide
Educator / Speaker
Why did you choose this special focus to your practice?
I came to realize there are not enough rehabilitation resources for people going through breast and chest surgery, and I wanted to change that. Also, supporting people going through cancer treatments with oncology massage can significantly help with side effects and quality of life, so I find the work extremely rewarding!
In addition to focusing my practice on this population, I also created The Mastectomy Guide, which you can read more about below.I absolutely LOVE working with this population, and hope to do so with you too!
How long have you been in practice?
I started energy healing almost 25 years ago, moved into massage therapy about 12 years ago.Yoga I also started about 25 years ago but only started teaching in the last 5 or so years.
What is your treatment style like?
Generally I use a light - medium pressure, depending on the stage of healing you are in.I will do areas of deep spot pressure, often with an instrument.I try to keep my treatments from being painful as much as possible, though sometimes tenderness is unavoidable. I don't do the "bone crusher" massages anymore.I use Swedish massage, manual lymph drainage, myofascial release, stretching, joint mobilizations, hot/cold stones, breathing and visualization as my main techniques.

The Mastectomy Guide
The Mastectomy Guide (MG) was created as an outgrowth from my massage therapy practice, and designed to fill the massive gap in rehabilitative care from breast and chest surgery.
Patients can find virtual home-care programs that are designed to make healing from breast cancer surgeries easier, smoother and with less complications. Programs have been reviewed and approved by surgeons, and are backed by science. Everything my patients asked about what they could do at home to help themselves, or discovered worked really well for them and they wanted to pay it forward, has gone into the patient programs.
Massage therapists can find evidence-informed training programs to learn to work with the breast and top surgery population ethically and safely.Courses are accredited in several provinces across Canada, and can be accessed both virtually and in-person.
