Sarah graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in April 2014 and has been working in Victoria for the past 7 years. She is excited to be relocating to the Comox Valley where she grew up.
Prior to her massage therapy education she spent four years in New Brunswick, at Mount Allison University, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree with a major in Sociology and a minor in English.
What she enjoys most about massage therapy is the wide spectrum of people she gets to meet and conditions she gets to treat. She understands the importance of treating each new client as a whole person and she loves the challenge of uncovering the root of dysfunction or pain, rather than simply treating symptomatically.
In her treatments she uses a combination of fascia work, muscle energy technique, trigger point therapy and passive and active movement in order to reduce pain, increase function and increase overall well-being.
She is well versed in a multitude of musculoskeletal and systemic conditions; however, she is particularly interested in treating chronic neck and low-back pain, tension headaches and stress and anxiety and TMJ dysfunction.
In her spare time Sarah enjoys running, mountain biking, outrigger canoeing, and reading.
