Amanda is a Registered Massage Therapist who obtained her Honours Bachelor of Science Degree in Biomedical Science and Psychology and moved on to pursue an Advanced Diploma with Honours in Massage Therapy at Humber College in Ontario. She believes in one on one communication with patients to build a therapeutic relationship. Her treatment evolves from patient-centered care and she creates unique and individualized treatment plans to obtain goals for carrying out daily activities.
Amanda has an active approach to care by educating her patients about massage and remedial exercise so they play a role in their treatments in order to maintain and prolong results. She has been practicing for over 6 years, applying a combination of relaxation and therapeutic methods to relieve Chronic and Acute Pain and Musculoskeletal Injuries. Her interests include Deep Tissue Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Pre and Post Natal Massage, and Active Release Stretching techniques.
Amanda has also completed training as a Doula and Labour Support Provider for pregnant women. She has obtained her full certification for Combined Decongestive Therapy using Dr. Vodder’s Manual Lymphatic Drainage techniques to assist with lymphedema, swelling of the tissues and joints, and helping people post-mastectomy with scar tissue healing.
She also obtained her Yoga Teacher Certification (RYT200) in March 2018 through Ashram Yoga in New Zealand. She is certified in Gravity Yoga, a method of deep stretching poses developed by Lucas Rockwood of Yoga Teachers College; this technique helps to improve flexibility and mobility of muscles, connective tissue and joints.
In her spare time, when Amanda is not with friends and family, she enjoys exploring new hiking trails, travelling, yoga, tinkering with a variety of instruments, and going for long walks with her dog Mia, a Shepherd-Husky mix.
