About Megan

megan1Megan is motivated by a desire to help her clients live fully and free from any limiting pain or physical barriers. She believes people often underestimate the power of massage therapy and hopes to help change that. Megan finds a huge part of what makes massage therapy so effective and interesting is due to the uniqueness of each individual. Massage treatment is delivered one-on-one, with the therapist completely present and constantly engaged in a form of physical dialogue with the patient’s tissues. Her approach to massage therapy involves considering each person’s areas of concern within the context of their whole body. Systemic Deep Tissue Therapy® is the primary form of treatment Megan uses in practice, blending in a variety of other therapeutic techniques as needed.  Megan feels honoured to be able to learn SDTT directly from the originator of the therapy, Armand Ayaltin DNM, RMT, RHP. She is currently enrolled in the Mentorship Program, working towards completing her Advanced level SDTT® training with Armand. She feels SDTT® is the single most effective manner of manual therapy she has ever experienced and is excited to be able to pass on the benefits of this innovative and unique therapy to her clients. To learn about Megan’s own powerful initial experience with SDTT® on a chronic, debilitating running injury, click here. megan2Megan has a strong background in athletics, having spent many years playing softball,  eight years kickboxing, plus also running, weight-lifting, climbing, and hiking in her spare time. Also having spent six years as a post-secondary student, Megan has plenty of experience in the physical effects of being “chained to a desk”. When not working at the clinic, Megan can be found jogging, trying new sports like dodgeball, painting, and continually learning more about health and massage therapy. The next sports she is looking to experience will be soccer and road biking, and eventually, kite surfing! Education and Experience

  “The skin is no more separate from the brain than the surface of a lake is separate from its depths. The two are in different locations in a continuous medium. The skin is an extension of the brain. The brain is a single functional unit from cortex to fingertips to toes. To touch the surface is to stir the depths.” -Deane Juhan
