I am very happy to be welcomed aboard at Maria McGugan Massage Therapy Clinic since Fall 2014. I graduated with honours distinction from Medix College of Health Care, Toronto Campus in June 2014. I bring with me more than 130 hours of clinical experience along with additional outreach experiences; inclusive to working with athletes at the Toronto Goodlife Marathon and Nurses at Sick Kids Hospital. In my educational experience I conducted assessments and orthopedic tests to be able to provide safe and effective treatments.
I performed therapeutic massages on patients with sport injuries, repetitive stress injuries, postural dysfunctions, motor vehicle accidents and central nervous system conditions and designed remedial exercise programs and recommended self-care advice to clients.
As a massage therapist, I focus on really listening to the concerns of each client and work with you to give you the most effective treatment possible using a variety of Swedish and advanced massage techniques. I believe massage is an integral part of maintaining a healthy life style. My practice is based on preventative care through client education, self- care and regular maintenance treatments. My skills include trigger point therapy, fascial release, deep tissue massage and the use of hydrotherapy. I also like to incorporate the use of Hot Stones to help with stress relief through relaxation massage. I am adept in treating an injury at any stage, working towards rehabilitation, managing chronic conditions or illnesses, and in treating special populations including pregnancy, children, elderly and athletes. My interests include sports massage and treating athletes, along with incorporating relaxing techniques to help to promote natural body functions. As a new therapist, I am extremely excited to join Maria McGugan Massage Therapy Clinic and provide clients with the best possible care and look forward to welcoming you as a client.
