I first discovered the benefits of bodywork as an injured world class swimmer. After three treatments I was fully recovered. Later as a Professional Triathlete I got regular massages to enhance my recovery which enabled me to train and compete at my best. That is when I decided to pursue my career as a human Licensed Massage Therapist attending Mount Royal College in Calgary, Alberta. Initially I specialized in Sports Massage working with athletes of all levels, traveling with Canadian National Teams and helping to prepare cyclists for the 1992 Olympics. Then I became a Medical Massage Therapist working with people with various injuries including spinal injuries, joint replacements, and cancer patients. I have training in various modalities including Sports Massage, Medical Massage, Myofascial Release, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Acupressure and Reiki.
Several years ago my love of horses drew me towards an Equine Sports Massage Certification. In my final exam I knew I had found a form of Bodywork that I was meant to do. I took Equine Myofascial Release and then I took the weekend Masterson Method® course. I was amazed at how we worked with the horses and they released so much tension. The communication aspect of the work, asking the horse how they feel, appealed to me. I dedicated myself to learning as much as I could about this work, equine anatomy and biomechanics. Then I did the 5 day course which was incredible! After the 5 day course I began my journey of completing my Masterson Method fieldwork to become a MM Certified Practitioner. I learned so much in the 2.5 years that it took me to complete all the case studies. I am so grateful for the opportunity to help horses feel better. I currently work with Eventing horses, Fox Hunting horses, injured horses and elderly horses. I continue to take equine courses on bodywork, anatomy and communication to further my knowledge so that I can do my best working with each horse.
