Massage Therapy scope of Practice

The practice of massage therapy is the assessment of the soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissue and joints by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or relieve pain. (Massage Therapy Act, 1991)

I was only 13 years old when I first decided that massage therapy was the career for me. I was even giving massages as a child to friends and family. My enjoyment of physically massaging combined with a lifelong interest and curiosity of the human body made it prefect.Learn more about Sarah…

I took many physical education, health and science classes during high school in preparation for college. I attended Sir Sandford College graduating from the 3 years massage therapy course in 2007 with an 80% average. Since graduating, I have been continuing to take classes to expand my areas of knowledge.

My goal as an RMT is to work with my clients to achieve their treatment goals. When that happens, it makes me love my job even more. To ensure positive clients feedback, I never give a massage that I would not want to receive.

I have an amazing family. My parents and 3 sisters have supported me through everything I have done in my life. My boyfriend and I have been together for over 3 years and are working towards our goal of owning our own home.

Massage therapy is a physically demanding job and requires a strong healthy body. I get massages on a biweekly basis and see a Chiropractor when necessary. I exercise regularly with a Goodlife membership and a love of my WiiFit.

The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the case of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”

Kim Pacey, RMT

The first time I had a massage I was nervous, but I loved it and decided this is what I am going to do.

I love working directly with people. I had a degree in Kinesiology and thought it would be a perfect match.

I graduated from the University of Western, Ontario in 1992 with a BA in Kinesiology. I obtained a diploma from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in 1996. I had a wonderful experience from both institutions.Learn more about Kim…

I love giving people pain relief and contentment. I really try to listen closely to each individual patient and to work on them accordingly. Sometimes people are frustrated with their pain and fatigue and it is nice to offer other options that they may not have considered or known about.

I am married with 4 children. My Husband and I have a blended family. I am very active with play when it comes to my children. I love sports, grew up playing sports but now find I am very busy participating in my children’s activities.

I myself receive chiropractic and massage therapy as often as I can. I believe that I have a very physical job and it is important that I maintain my own self care. I am very active with treating myself with hydrotherapy, aromatherapy and stretching as well.

I never realised the importance of ‘taking care of yourself’ until I became a Registered Massage Therapist.

I graduated from the International Academy of Massage Therapy in Ottawa in 2009. I count myself very lucky to have found a chiropractic clinic to start my career with and have learned a lot about combining care and the countless benefits of a more natural approach to health and wellness. Massage therapy can help many different people, in all ages and stages of life. I love making people feel better and find great joy in being part of their wellness team.

I am a mother of two little ones and have taken a very keen interest in helping women during this change in life. I have a body cushion that allows pregnant women to lie on their stomachs throughout the treatment, providing a more effective and thorough treatment of all those common sore spots.Learn more about Amanda…

Every client requires something different from a treatment, and my hope is to help each and every one of my clients the best I can. I love the challenge of finding out what works for each individual and would love the opportunity to become part of your health team. Massage therapy does work and I enjoy the benefits myself as often as I can, as well as chiropractic care for my family and I.

We have just recently moved from Ottawa after living there for over 10 years and we are extremely happy to be back in the country, closer to family and friends. We love to camp, the outdoors and running around with our two rug rats and we can’t wait to make Peterborough our new home!

I am passionate about getting results for my clients.

My approach to treatment combines extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology with finely honed intuition. I begin each session with tangible goals, and let my instincts guide my hands to where they will be most effective. I will help you get to the root of your problem, so that you can enjoy your body’s fullest potential.

I cultivate a compassionate environment for profound relaxation and true healing. I take pride in really listening to my clients, learning from your lived experience in your own body.

I graduated from Fleming College in 2012. I continue to cultivate my practice by studying the latest research on massage, and by exploring other bodywork modalities.

Whether you are recovering from an acute injury, seeking relief from a chronic condition, or simply wishing to reduce stress, I can help.

Sharing the Amazing Benefits of Massage with Others is My Goal

Being a native of Peterborough I am happy to be working and raising my family in such a vibrant community. I graduated with honours from Trent University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science and attended Fleming College to become a Registered Massage Therapist with the College of Massage Therapists in 2002.

I am a trained Kinesio Tape provider and recently completed the John Barnes Myofascial Release (MFR) seminar series in Sedona, Arizona. I have obtained certification in MFR I, MFR II and Unwinding. I also am a Certified Personal Trainer with CanFitPro and a OCT certified teacher that has taught high school sciences in Ontario, Australia and Trinidad. While completing the Master of Teaching Program at Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia, I worked as a massage therapist at the New Farm Holistic Health Centre.

As well as having a busy massage practice I also teach in the Massage Therapy program at Trillium College, since 2011. I have had profound experiences receiving and treating with MFR and hope to further my MFR training, while I continue to share its amazing benefits with others.

As a recent graduate of Sir Sanford Fleming College’s Massage Therapy program, I am eager to begin my Massage Therapy career with Peterborough Chiropractic Group. Prior to pursuing my studies in Massage Therapy, I obtained a degree in Psychology from Dalhousie University in beautiful Halifax, NS. Returning to Ontario, I gained experience in a variety of fields relating to mental health, differing abilities, and dual diagnoses. For the past 5 years, I have enjoyed my work as Rehabilitation Support Worker in the fascinating field of brain injury rehabilitation.

My aims as a Massage Therapist are to help individuals live their best lives through health, wellness, healing, and recovery. The body has an amazing healing capacity within itself and Massage Therapy can support this innate mechanism to help manage stress, heal from injury, and cope with disease.

My approach to Massage Therapy is rooted in client empowerment and involves working with each client to come up with a treatment plan that fits their individual health and wellness goals in a peaceful, welcoming, and inclusive environment.

Originally hailing from Fergus, Ontario I have now lived in Peterborough for almost 10 years with my husband and two cats. I enjoy running, yoga and receiving massages as part of my self-care routine.

“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our minds strong and clear.” – Buddha

I graduated and received my advanced diploma from Fleming College in Peterborough and am very excited to start my career as an RMT. Through my experience treating in clinic, I have come to appreciate the importance of treating each patient as an individual, listening to their specific symptoms and goals for their health, wellness and fitness. After careful assessment, I will create a treatment plan that is individually designed for each client so that the most effective and efficient treatment can be given. Through manual treatment, guided exercises, and home care, I hope to restore balance to the body and provide relaxation.

I am passionate about continuing to learn and grow and I enjoy educating my clients on how massage and movement can make big changes in the body and mind. I love the one-on-one interactions with patients and know from experience that a good therapeutic massage can be the highlight of a stressful week.
