Many of my clients ask me what made me want to be a massage therapist? I have always found joy in helping others and have had interests in natural health so I was drawn to massage therapy. My journey first started as working as a lifeguard going to a private massage institute on weekends in Calgary. My career path has taken me through working at a spa, chiropractic clinic and now as the owner and a RMT at Active Healing Massage. I look forward to meeting you and getting you on the path to healing.

Lighter pressure full body massage geared more towards stress relief and those who do not care for the deeper pressure massage. The goal of this massage is to leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
A combination of a medium pressure massage using hot rocks followed by a relaxation or Therapuetic massage. Basalt stones are warmed up and then transfer heat by massaging and being placed on the muscles. This is then followed by a regular massage which can be quite effective as the muscle tissues are already warmed up. Ideal for clients who do not like a really deep pressure as the heat will reach the deeper muscles or clients who are really tight and need the muscles tissues warmed up before a theraputic massage.
A 30 minute massage that focuses on treating the jaw muscles. The therapist will treat the surface muscles on the face and then will also go inside the mouth to treat the deeper muscles. Ideal for clients suffering from jaw pain from clenching, problems opening/closing mouth or chronic headaches. This treatment can be 30 minute on its own or incorporated in a regular 60/90 minute massage. Clients often find this treatment a bit intense.
A deeper pressure massage that focuses more on specific muscles and problem areas of the body. Your therapist will come up with a treatment plan tailored to begin relieving an injury or ailment of the body and may take a few sessions. Clients usually experience some tenderness over the next couple of days.
A deep tissue massage with the use of suction cups to pull and stretch the muscles followed by a therapuetic massage. This technique uses the opposite force of a regular massage and lifts the muscles creating more blood flow to the area and releasing compression. This massage is effective for nerve pain or pain around bony areas that are hard to get to with regular massage such as knees, elbows, spine and hips. Most clients experience red/purple circles for about a week

A deep tissue massage geared towards clients who are active and focuses on the specific muscles of the body that are overused and stressed by aggressive repetitive motion. Can be used to prevent injuries during training/exercise, reduce recovery time, promote flexibility and improve endurance.
MYOFASCAIL RELEASE THERAPY
This massage is a lighter massage that focus’s on the connective tissues (fascia) that covers your muscles. This tissue can become tight and restricted resulting in chronic pain. The therapist will slowly work directly on the skin with no oil to accurately detect these restrictions and apply pressure accordingly to release tension. This technique is effective for pain caused by trauma, surgical procedures, inflammation and re-occurring injuries.
A healthy way to relieve the aches and pains caused by pregnancy. This light-medium pressure massage is good for low back pain, leg cramps, swelling and shoulder/neck tension. This treatment is often done with the use of special cushions to allow the client to lay face down or they can also be treated lying on their side.
This therapeutic massage uses a Shockwave Therapy Machine during the massage to send intense energy waves to the clients problem areas. These waves break up calcification on the tendons, releases tension in tight muscles, decreases inflammation and promotes more blood flow and tissue regeneration. Effective for chronic muscle pain and tendinitis’s including but not limited to: planter – fasciitis, achilles tendinitis, foot/elbow and shoulder pain. This technique is less invasive to the body leaving clients less tender than a regular deep tissue massage.
Rattan (Bamboo) Massage
A deep tissue massage with the use of warm heated up bamboo sticks. The therapist uses these tools to roll and dig into the muscles. Similar to a Hot Stone Massage but more therapeutic than relax.
