Louise believes that all of us are in need of more positive touch in our lives. As our lives become ever more rushed and pressured, we find fewer and fewer opportunities for actual physical contact with other people. On the clinical side, massage has been shown to increase circulation, improve respiration, ease of digestion and facilitate recovery from muscular injury and soreness. It relaxes the body and mind and calms the spirit. Massage eases us into a slower way of life, where we can lie on a warm table with gentle music and calming hands to work out life’s stresses.
Louise’s massages are designed to promote both healing and relaxation.
Louise is an active member of the Registered Massage Therapists Association of Ontario (RMTAO) and is in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO).
