I have been a conscious, grounded member in good standing with the College of Massage Therapy of BC since 2015. I am interested in providing a form of health care that empowers both individual and community to take charge of their care, with emphasis on of trauma physiology and remediation, and with a deeper connection to land and movement based medicines.
I am motivated and inspired to facilitate what is optimally functional for you, effectively acting as mediator between mind and body, addressing mindfulness, and working with the nervous system to interrupt the body’s pain habits and instabilities. I strive to move you from where you are now to where you want to be, as is optimally functional for you, and to provide a better understanding of how the emotional and physical bodies interact in a body neutral and inclusive setting.
I approach my practice with gratitude and a great sense of fulfillment using a variety of techniques for as many purposes as there are bodies, within the framework of your consent and comfort level, for example:
– myofascial manipulation
– visceral manipulation
– ligamentous articular strain technique
– sports therapy, or impact accident: recovery, injury prevention and rehabilitation
– postural, mechanical and proprioceptive rehabilitation
– nerve impingement or traction syndromes and nerve release therapy
– vocal access, expansion and breath awareness
– TMJ syndrome
– pre/post natal care
– muscle energy technique
– deep tissue
– relaxation and stress reduction
– orthopedic technique: passive and active stretching, muscle stripping, trigger point release.
In effort to recognize and shift the socioeconomic barriers to access massage therapy, I am offering one morning a week and one day a month of community massage. These will be limited to half hour appointments (wherein we get right to the point) to those who make less than $30,000 net income annually, and priority will be given to BIPOC, LGBTQ2+, sex workers, and folks facing work or housing loss. These sessions will be offered at a cash only sliding scale rate of $25-$60 per session. If you qualify for the msp supplementary benefit program, Mountainview Movement will be happy to submit your claim to msp for which you will be reimbursed $23 up to 10 visits. To apply for the msp supplementary benefits program please visit https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/health/health-drug-coverage/msp/bc-residents/benefits/services-covered-by-msp/supplementary-benefits

I will also be returning to school to work toward a degree in counselling. In the meantime, I am slowly weaving together my passions for healing through self study and delighting in finding parallels between human anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, emotion, and ecology.
My hands are magic and my thoughts are present. I stumble over my words and give flailing and lanky demonstrations which I can only hope inspire you to be weird and do your home care while in line at the grocery store. I tend to my passions with love.
