About the Registered Massage Therapist – Jennifer De Clercq RMT
After 15 years in commodity customer service and corporate training, I made a career change to massage therapy.
I graduated from the Mount Royal College Massage Therapy program in 2005. Shortly after graduating, I added Hot Stone Therapy and Shiatsu to my practice. I studied Shiatsu massage with the team at the Ten Thousand Waves Spa in New Mexico, USA with professional sport massage master, Masanori Uchida from Nagoya, Japan. It is a favourite treatment among my clients.
In 2017, I made the decision to get focused on my own self care. I was receiving various forms of chiropractic, physiotherapy, and massage but not getting long lasting, definitive change. As a result, I hired a professional athletic coach and dedicated myself to changing my body composition and structure through intensive training and nutrition. As a result, I feel strengthened and inspired to support others in achieving their goals while overcoming their personal obstacles.
Meanwhile, I was searching for a new modality to add to my career. I discovered the Anatomy Trains Structural Integration (ATSI) certification led by Thomas Myers in Maine, USA. After learning how this technique addresses posture, structural stability, and range of motion deficiencies, I realized it was a perfect fit for my own personal mission and where I wanted to direct my career. I knew it would help others get back to a pain free, efficiently working body. After undergoing the ATSI 12 Session Series, I experienced the dramatic altering results myself. I look forward to provide clients with a similar experience. In the mean time, I continue to work towards the full certification of ATSI. At this time, I can offer the introductory 3 Session Series of Structural Bodywork to aid in your self care journey.
I believe this is the best solution to relieve postural pain. I firmly believe in many cases, the body can heal itself with a strong and stabilized posture; supported by proper nutrition, movement, and rest.
I enjoy a balanced lifestyle with interests including hiking, travelling, weight training, yoga, and clean eating.
