Massage Therapy is a cornerstone of that plan, and you’ll be well on your way to living a life that’s active and free from pain.
Leigh Austin, RMT
Leigh graduated from Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic in 2012. In addition to her 2,200 hour Massage Therapy diploma program she completed an 800 hour Spa Therapy Diploma at Sprott-Shaw community college in 2008.
In 2019 she became a student of Applied Somatics and is also studying the most current pain research with PainBC. She is passionate in helping her clients understand the multifaceted nature of the central nervous system and how it impacts pain and quality of life.
Leigh just completed a Hot/Cold Stone therapeutic massage course and is introducing this wonderful ancient modality to her clients. The hot basalt stones will be used as an added tool to release tight congested muscles and to warm and sooth the nervous system.
When hot and cold stones are contrasted in a specific area of the body they cause tissue tension to let go remarkably well. The cold stones are ‘cool’ when placed on the body and a hot stone is used simultaneously so the client doesn’t feel an abrupt cold sensation.
There is no extra charge when you book your treatment and the stones aren’t simply placed on your body. They are used with oil to provide deep therapeutic work to your muscles. The stones can be adapted to your preferences or not used at all.
They will be available whenever you come in!If you prefer light pressure, a gentle 60 or 90 min full body hot stone effleurage treatment is a nice way to unwind!
By day she enjoys helping her clients have a better quality of life and by morning and night she walks her dog Icey.
