What is Massage Therapy?

Massage Therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues which include, muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. The aim of massage therapy is to develop, maintain, rehabilitate, or enhance physical function of the soft tissues in order to decrease pain and adhesions, improving the well being of the client.

What to expect from Massage Therapy

The goal of your first few massages will be to begin pain relief, reduce tension and sedate stressed nerves. Your first visit will not solve your problems, but will start the process, as well as provide you with an overall sense of well being. Following your first visits, and once your condition is relieved, your massage will focus on the underlying cause of your symptoms, and the strengthening of the tissues surrounding the problem area in order to prevent the return of your previous condition.

  • Dana McMillan
    BA, RMT

    My journey to becoming a RMT began as a youth, growing up in Port Perry. My passion for sport led me to pursue a Specialized Honours BA in Kinesiology and Health Science from York University and graduated in 1998. The knowledge gained in anatomy and physiology only furthered my interest in health, fitness and the powerful ability of the human body to heal itself naturally. In 2000, I graduated from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy on the Dean's list. I believe in tailoring a massage towards the individual needs of each client by using the fundamental modalities within Swedish massage to get the best results possible. I have taken courses in deep tissue work, sports massage and pre and post natal massage as well as infant massage.

    I have been with Brooklin Village Massage Therapy Clinic since February 2009 and enjoy working with the talented staff and friendly clientele in this small community. Outside of massage therapy, I continue to be involved in sport, enjoy travel and spending time with family and friends.

  • Mary Anne Dass-Chadee
    RMT

    Being a RMT is a lifelong dream come true for me. My background in customer service has certainly helped me in being more attentive to clients needs.

    I have been fortunate enough to work with diverse groups of people. Through my experience in hospital outreaches, working at a gym, a spa and corporate environments, I have gained more knowledge and ability to work with a variety of conditions.

    During my treatments I like to focus on decreasing fascial restrictions, releasing tension in muscles, working on maintaining good blood circulation throughout the body and decreasing pain. One of my goals as a RMT is to help people become aware of their bodies, educate them on how they can heal while offering individual care, encouragement and support.

    I joined this amazing group in June 2010 and I look forward to being a part of its continued success.

  • Catherine Paterson
    RMT

    Catherine Paterson (CJ), graduated from Algonquin College in Ottawa in 2006 with her Massage Therapy diploma. While attending Algonquin College she started to get migraines and suffered from lower back pain. The pain started to affect her school work, driving and concentration. It was only after a professor highly suggested she see a Massage Therapist and chiropractor that she found great relief. It was then that she realized just how powerful hands can be in healing and the difference a therapist can make in someone’s life. Also since 2007, CJ has worked with the post cancer population with a condition called Lymphedema and is still being referred to from many of the Toronto hospitals for Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD). She has been a member of the Lymphedema Association of Ontario (LAO) since 2008. CJ is also an avid runner and is working towards her first marathon. In the last few years, CJ discovered a love for triathlons, and because of this she feels she has insider information about how athletes can benefit from massage.

  • Marnie Gallant
    RMT, MLD/CDT

    In a previous career I spent my days sitting at a desk doing computer aided drafting (AutoCAD) after completing an Architectural Technology Diploma program and an AutoCAD certificate at St. Clair College of Applied Arts & Technology in Windsor. After having my first professional massage as a college student I developed an interest in the profession. I loved the soothing atmosphere and the life supporting nature of the environment.

    Eventually I decided to become a RMT and attended Sutherland-Chan School & Teaching Clinic in Toronto. Upon graduating in 2003 I began working at The Adelaide Club Spa and spent much time treating various musculoskeletal and postural conditions in clients that sit at a desk all day. My previous computer experience gave me firsthand knowledge of the physical challenges associated with a sedentary job. In 2008 I completed the Dr. Vodder certification for Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) and Combined Decongestive Treatment (CDT) and continue to re-certify every 2 years to keep current by learning about the newest developments/research in the field.

    MLD is a gentle, non-invasive manual skin technique that assists lymph flow and aids in the drainage of body tissues. It is helpful in treating conditions such as primary and secondary lymphedema (resulting from past injuries or cancer treatments), non-infected inflammatory conditions (sprains & strains), sport injuries, burns, dermatological conditions, circulatory disturbances, and pre/post plastic surgery. I am a member, in good standing, of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, the Registered Massage Therapists Association of Ontario, and the Lymphedema Association of Ontario.
