*None of our RMTs are accepting new ICBC patients at this time.
I’m fascinated by the art and science of massage therapy. With a trauma-informed approach, and a special focus on pain and stress management, I enjoy helping people feel at ease in their bodies. I also facilitate discussions for students and RMTs to learn about current research and best practices in patient care.
I bring a compassionate, responsive approach that acknowledges the significant role that stress and trauma can play in a person's experience of their body. Communication, consent and collaboration are central to my therapeutic practice. I enjoy facilitating somatic connection, balance and function for people on terms that make sense to them.
I’m passionate about how the body works and moves. I integrate an intuitive approach while using therapeutic and relaxing techniques. I understand no two bodies are the same and tailor each treatment to meet the needs of my patients. I’m honoured to provide support and encouragement to everyone I treat.
(Please note: Dana has returned to school and will have limited appointments available.)I take a collaborative approach, engaging in non-judgmental listening to understand my patients’ unique needs. I enjoy creating an environment of relaxation while working to achieve my patients’ therapeutic goals. Drawing on my education in psychology and health sociology, I understand additional stressors which may be contributing to my patients’ clinical concerns.
I appreciate that each individual’s body and lived experience is unique. I take an approach to treatment that is investigative and exploratory, treating each area of the body in the context of the whole and encouraging movement. I am committed to providing a non-judgmental and safe space for all bodies and neurotypes.
I offer a therapeutic massage with light to medium pressure that has a calming effect on the nervous system. In today's hectic lifestyle, we often forget to pause and appreciate our own bodies. My goal is to provide a comfortable and cozy environment that allows you to focus 100% on yourself, enabling you to celebrate the amazing being that you are.
I'm a firm believer that communication, collaboration, and consent are crucial for success in the therapeutic process. I'm particularly fond of working slowly, using relaxation massage as the framework upon which I add more targeted therapeutic techniques. I enjoy working with a wide variety of bodies, backgrounds, genders, and neurotypes.
My practice focuses on pain and stress management, recognizing the significant impact they can have on individuals' lives. I provide evidence-based care, incorporating biopsychosocial principles. My goals are to help you manage pain and stress while providing therapeutic massage within a supportive, client-centered environment.
