Knowledgeable and Compassionate Professionals
I have always been in awe of the human body and it was this fascination that led me to completing a Bachelor of Physical Education, focusing on Exercise Physiology in 1996. Wanting a more hands on approach, I became a massage therapist in the year 2000. I am passionate about helping women throughout their child bearing years and beyond. I bring many tools with me into every treatment - therapeutic/deep tissue techniques, TMJ release, cupping or relaxation. And as someone who has continued to learn over these 21+ years about the human body and movement, I love coaching people to feel better in their bodies and to move freely. Along with massage therapy, I also offer one on one sessions where you will be given breathing techniques and specific exercises tailored for you so you can feel strong and mobile in your body!
In 2011, I graduated with Honours from the Lethbridge College Massage Therapy program. I treasure education for the tools it allows me to bring to my clients and have taken over a dozen continuing education courses to improve the quality and effectiveness of my treatments. Often it is tension from one area that affects another, and I believe it is my job as your massage therapist to address the source of your pain. It is my goal to help prenatal mothers enjoy their pregnancy as comfortably as possible, and for postnatal mothers to return to their functioning healthy normal, regardless of how long it has been since birth. It is in honour to work with the incredible human body, and specifically the woman’s body. Whether you are currently pregnant, are 40 years postpartum, or have never had a child, I feel privileged to help your body feel its best, and to allow you to thrive in health and happiness.
I am a registered massage therapist and have been in private practice for about 25 years. I have a NNEB Nursery Nursing certificate from the UK and came to Canada as a private live-in nanny. I worked with babies and children for many years before having my own two beautiful daughters and going to Mount Royal University to become a massage therapist. My certification also includes Pediatric Massage Therapist and Infant Massage Teacher through Liddle Kidz out of California, USA. I am also a personal trainer and specialize in Pregnancy and Postpartum and personal training for the Active Aging population.
Patricia will be starting in September.
I’ve been a Registered Massage Therapist since 2009. I started my career working with athletes and after the birth of my first child, I began to focus primarily on working with mothers. Today my practice brings together my knowledge and passions in both these fields. I am a movement lover and I am passionate about helping moms to find movement freedom in their lives with small children and changing bodies. I look forward to meeting you where you are at and helping you get to where you would be happiest.
CMMT was established by Linda Hickey in 1999. She treats women with thoughtful, skilled and nurturing care through their pregnancies, births and early mothering days. Many of those clients have stayed through subsequent pregnancies and beyond, her practice is evolving to include women's health across all stages of life. Linda has also taught maternity massage therapy throughout Canada and the United States. See her in action at a clinic in Canmore - click link below.
The prenatal and postpartum massages with Kathy have been crucial to my overall health and wellness during both of my pregnancies and postpartum recoveries. The side-lying setup is extremely comfortable, both during pregnancy and while nursing. After her massages, the pain in my hips and shoulders is significantly reduced and my whole body feels relaxed. I highly recommend Kathy as part of your prenatal care and beyond!
I had tried at least 6 different prenatal massage places around Calgary between my last pregnancy and my current one, and after finding CMMT I will never go anywhere else! Sydney is AMAZING! She is knowledgeable and gifted in what she does. I will be continuing to go here for massage long after my delivery. The staff here are so passionate for what they do, and they put so much care and thought into every aspect of the customer experience. They are accommodating for mama's and their kiddos and babies in every way -I can't say enough good things about this place!
I found Kathy when i was 3 months pregnant. My baby is now almost 2.5 yrs old and I'm still a regular client. Her massages have been the best I've had! She's a master at hitting individual areas with precision and is equal parts firm but relaxing. I always walk out of the massage in a blissful daze.
