Kelly is a graduate from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy (WCCMT) 2200 hour program. During her time at WCCMT she gained extensive experience working in the student clinic treating a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Kelly also gained experience through an array of school outreach and in reach programs, where she had the opportunity to work with women with high risk pregnancies, athletes, and patients with Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinsons Disease.
Prior to massage therapy, Kelly received her bachelors degree in Kinesiology from the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV), and worked as a Kinesiologist implementing exercise programs for patients before returning back to school. Kelly has also been very active in the athletic community having worked with the Simon Fraser University Men’s Hockey team, as well as the Langley Thunder Sr. A Lacrosse team.
Kelly strives to individualize treatment plans to help patients achieve their specific treatment goals and to get them back to doing the things they love. She believes that a combination of massage therapy and a good home care program can help improve the patients condition and also allow the patient to be actively involved in their healing process. Kelly is proficient in performing deep tissue massage and incorporates many different techniques into treatment some of which include trigger point therapy, active and passive stretching, myofascial release, and joint mobilizations.
Recently, Kelly has become a Level 1 Certified Fascial Stretch Therapist. Fascial Stretch TherapyTM is a unique system of table-based assisted stretching that takes a global approach to the body and movement. This therapy focuses primarily on releasing and mobilizing fascia, joint capsules, and other connective tissue, which in turn can help improve your flexibility, mobility, strength, performance, and reduce pain. This therapy stands out from other flexibility programs in that each stretch begins with a light traction of the joint being treated, allowing for a deeper stretch and the stretch is never static, as it continuously moves with the range of motion of the joint and muscles.
