Registered Massage Therapist
Trish graduated from the Alberta Institute of Massage Therapy in Red Deer. She’s been an RMT since 2006, and moved to Airdrie in 2012. She’s worked with a variety of clients from children to athletes to the elderly, treating an assortment of injuries.
Trish’s style ranges from relaxation techniques to deep tissue massage, as well as specializing in prenatal massage and reflexology. After taking two years off for personal reasons, she’s returned to Blessingways and is available Wednesday and Thursday evenings and Saturdays.
Reflexology is based on the ability to enable healing in one body part or organ (a reflex response) by stimulating specific points on the body. The most common – foot reflexology – is where practitioners stimulate the reflex points on the feet to trigger stimulation in a corresponding organ or structure.
Treatment occurs in a combination of two phases where the practitioner works to stimulate and balance the whole body, as well as pausing to do specific work when active reflex points are found. The reflex points are then stimulated with moderate to firm pressure in a number of different applied techniques.
Reflexology is a whole-body treatment. Stimulation of the reflex points on the feet, hands or even ears is said to help self-regulate the body and encourage the body to move the organ or structure and its associated energy towards balance or better function.
