I received my first Thai massage in 2016 when I was traveling across Europe with my family, and was completely amazed by the experience. I loved how active the massage was for both the therapist and the client, and I was surprised by how energized I felt after the therapy. It literally changed my life and led me to Thailand where I completed my training as a therapist.
The emphasis of Thai massage is on body work, joint release and relaxation. Thai massage is often considered comparable to yoga exercises, but in my case, it reminded me of all the partner stretching I did when I trained in Kung Fu during university. And those were good memories.
The benefits of Thai massage are cumulative. It might have taken days, weeks or even years for you to develop your back pain or stiff neck, so it is impossible for one Thai massage to reverse these conditions. As a therapist, my goal is to help you reach a state of well-being and maintain it. My best reward is seeing you take an active part in your healing process.
I am a University of Saskatchewan psychology graduate and kinesiology student. I am a certified personal trainer for the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology, yoga teacher, and fitness instructor with the SPRA. I love being outdoors, fine art, and lifting heavy things.
I started exercising by attending group exercise classes at the university gym and was inspired by the instructors, which led me to become certified to teach. After becoming an instructor, I took studies in exercise science and nutrition so I can provide high quality and engaging programs to a diversity of people.
I attended the Thai Massage School of Thailand and will be working at Sirius Health as a Thai massage therapist. I plan to provide care and wellness to others as well as continue with my health and fitness goals.
