She and Linda Bonner established the Kerrisdale Centre for Therapeutic Massage in October of that year. Prior to becoming an RMT Linda practiced as a Registered Nurse for a number of years.
In Her Own Words:
I have completed numerous post graduate RMT courses including Muscle Energy Technique, Cranial Sacral Therapy, and Myofascial Release.
Since 1995 I have been studying somatic psychotherapy and trauma therapy with, first, the Bodynamic Institute, founded in Denmark, and currently with Merete Holm Brantbjerg also from Denmark.
My personal Yoga and Pilates and Meditation practices also inform my work with patients.
My intent always is to work with each person as a whole, addressing body, mind and spirit within each being. I work with a variety of people and conditions including: acute injury and pain, chronic pain, aging bodies, chronic illnesses and cancer, as well as with people who want to maintain wellbeing and personal growth. People who are experiencing bereavement, grief and loss find my work supportive and beneficial.
I work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays
