Chelsea is a graduate of the Massage Therapy program at OVCMT in Vernon, BC. As a Registered Massage Therapist, her approach is attentive and sensitive to each client’s particular needs. She has found that for many of us, injury and physical dysfunction result from a lifetime of habitual postures and movements. Therefore, to create any lasting change treatment needs to address both the recent symptoms and the underlying structure and functionality that caused them.
The creation of a safe space that is inclusive and welcoming for all is very important to Chelsea. She believes that safe healing touch has a powerful role to play in our lives and she is continually thrilled and awed with the ability of the human body to adapt, to strengthen, and to heal.
Chelsea has found that treatment need not be painful to be effective and longer lasting results come when promoting and enhancing the body’s natural healing inclination. This often takes the form of a remarkably subtle approach with the goal of decreased pain and stress and an improvement in overall wellbeing.
Treatments are customized to the individual. Clients’ needs are addressed through a variety of techniques intended to achieve long-term health – whether that means relief from pain, rehabilitation after an injury or surgery, or assisting lifestyle and exercise goals. You will also be provided with a relevant homecare routine in the form of strengthening, stretching and/or habitual changes to facilitate your road to health. Chelsea encourages her clients to play an active role in their recovery, believing that the most effective therapy is a team effort.
