WHO I AM AND MY PRACTICE
Hi, I'm Brenna.
I'm a Registered Massage Therapist in qathet, BC.
My approach to massage therapy is to promote relaxation while also targeting your unique individual needs - after all, every body is unique and perfect in its own way, and requires a personalized approach. Through partnership with you, the client, I strive to create an individualized treatment plan that will help you connect to your own body and ultimately, to heal.
My massage "toolkit" includes deep tissue, Swedish massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, lymphatic drainage, and hot & cold stone massage. I have experience working with diverse populations including those experiencing chronic pain, mental health & stress, pregnancy and postpartum, injury rehabilitation, spinal issues, nervous system disorders, and all age groups, body types, and identities. Mine is an inclusive space where I aim to make you feel safe, comfortable, and heard.
What is Massage Therapy?
Massage Therapy is an ancient practice, dating as far back as 3000 BC. People have long recognized its benefits, and it has been used across many cultures for everything from pain relief, to relaxation, to helping to heal injuries and illnesses.
These days, massage therapy has proven to be beneficial for many of the same things. Not only does it just feel good, but it can help to calm the nervous system, which in turn allows the body to focus on healing. Manual pressure and manipulation of soft tissues can also help to relieve muscle tension and pain, and speed up injury healing. These are just some of its many benefits! As such, most extended benefits plan cover some massage therapy.
Types of Treatments
I offer 30, 45, 60, and 75 minute treatment options. During this time, we will do a brief intake and assessment (if necessary), the treatment itself, and if needed, I can offer some tailored homecare suggestions at the end of our appointment. You are encouraged to bring questions and curiosity! I love to learn, educate, and help solve issues, and look forward to doing this together.

Hot & Cold Stone Therapy
I have additional training in hot and cold stone therapy. Many of us are familiar with this practice, and I believe it is a wonderful tool to help relax muscles, promote relaxation, and create lasting change in the body.
This treatment option is available at all times (Weather permitting - during a heat wave I may choose not to use them!), at my discretion and/or your request.
