MASSAGE THERAPIST, Kinesitherapist
Member of Mon Réseau +
Massage therapist Plateau
EDUCATION AND WORK EXPERIENCE
I have a B.Sc. in kinesiology and massokinesiotherapy from the University of Quebec in Trois-Rivieres (2015). This three year program trains massage therapists with a clinical and biomechanical approach. It teaches both skills and knowledge in kinesiology (the science of the moving human body ), in kinesitherapy (treatment through passive, active and resistance movements), in neurophysiology of pain, etc. With an interest in physical re-adaptation of skeletal muscles, I have been trained to work in coordination with other health care professionals specialising in this area.
Before undertaking my university program, my passion for the massage therapy profession started in 2007 with a 450 hour training program in therapeutic massage at the Ecole MKO in Trois-Rivieres. Once certified by Mon Reseau Plus, I joined the massage therapy team at Tonix Spa Détente Urbain in Trois-Rivieres, where I exercised my profession for 7 rewarding years. As I have a great curiosity for health sciences, I decided to improve my professional skills and abilities by doing my bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and massokinesiotherapy while working.
I also have a bachelor’s degree in psychology and two university certificates (medical biology and in English and health sciences).
Even if I specialised in physical re-adaptation during my university studies, my experience in a health centre made me a very versatile massage therapist. Every human body, every physical and psychological condition, as well as all morphology and pain resistance are different. Consequently, I provide my clients with a personalised, specific and individualised treatment according to their current needs.
