What's Happening at RHCC

Welcome to our new RMT, Marybeth!
We want to introduce a very experienced and versatile RMT to join our team here at Russell Hill!
Mary-Beth graduated from the Sutherland-Chan School of Massage in 1990 and was part of their faculty from 1993 to 2001. She taught Anatomy/palpation, Assessments, Trigger point Treatment and was Clinical Supervisor.
Since then, she has been in private practice in many settings with a wide range of clients. A few areas have been touchstones throughout her career: A fascination with the Performing Arts led her to specialize in TMJ (jaw) and tensions that affect the breath and voice. She also remains fascinated by the potential manual therapies have to restore locomotor function and for recovery from trauma.
For the past 30 years Mary-Beth has made the study of the structure and dynamics of connective tissue, also Neurology and stress behaviours (all of which affect each other). In this pursuit, she has taken numerous courses: Movement-based Therapies, Osteopathic Techniques, Contemporary Acupuncture, Neurobiological mechanisms of Pain, and Pilates. Importance is placed on listening carefully and helping a person determine what the issue and treatment mean to them: What is the source? Which treatment will improve function or wellbeing? The questions are always just as important as the answers.
Intrigued? Book an appointment today with Marybeth, she is here on Wednesdays :)
