~ Wishing you a very Happy & Healthy New Year From Island RMTs ~

Massage Therapy

_Jesse is beginning her gradual return to practice after taking leave. Priority will be given to her existing patients for appointments. If you are a new patient, please hold inquiries for bookings at this time. Online booking will be made available once she has returned to her full schedule.

Jesse is a 2014 graduate West Coast College of Massage Therapy’s 3000/hour Registered Massage Therapy program in Victoria BC. She is very excited to have recently returned to the Comox Valley after spending the last nine years in Victoria.

Jesse’s interest in becoming an RMT started as a young athlete from her keen interest in the complex workings of the human body and later with her desire to have a career that would have a positive impact in the lives of others. Jesse believes Massage Therapy is a very effective tool that can be used to help reduce pain and stress as well as restore and maintain mobility so her clients can participate fully in the activities they love.

Jesse believes that the Nervous system holds the key to breaking the pain tension cycle and allowing the body to heal and a balance is maintained between mechanical and relaxing massage techniques in all of her treatments. Techniques she may incorporate in her treatments are Swedish Massage, CranioSacral, Isolytic Release, Muscle Energy Technique, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Pressure Release and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation. Techniques are selected based on the client’s symptoms, tissue presentation and how the client responds to specific techniques.

She strives to achieve the best results for her clients by carefully adapting techniques and a treatment plan to best suite her client’s individual needs. In order to help prevent further injury she focuses on Identifying the root of the problem and educating her clients with corrective measures such as postural education, proper work place biomechanics and stretching and/or strengthening exercises.
