Christine is passionate about holistic health care, and believes massage therapists are an important part of a health care team. After suffering a serious neck injury, Christine found the answer to reducing her pain through massage therapy. She fell in love with the profession, and decided she wanted to help others through massage therapy just as she has been helped.
Building on her extensive knowledge of pathophysiology, anatomy, microbiology, and public health from her bachelor’s degree in health sciences at the University of Ottawa, Christine turned to the intensive massage therapy program at Algonquin College to deepen her understanding of soft-tissue function and dysfunction and how to improve muscle health. Massage for her is a combination of science and art, and is a way for Christine to continue her dedication to public health through hands-on care and education.
Christine grew up here in Ottawa and spends her free time playing sports, painting, sculpting and writing music. These talents have taken her into fields she wouldn’t have imagined: for example, teaching art to medical students at the University of Ottawa, and showing and selling her own artwork.
Christine est artiste dans son temps libre et se divertit avec ses sculptures et peintures. Elle croit que la massothérapie est une forme d’art qui met en pratique ses talents au niveau de ses mains. L’éducation du publique au sujet de la santé est, d’après Christine, la façon la plus efficace d’obtenir une population plus en santé. C’est alors le devoir à Christine de partager ses connaissances en massothérapie avec ses clients.
