About

Dolly Meadowcroft – Registered Massage Therapist

With experience working in a massage clinic, spa and chiropractors office, I have developed a natural ability to understand what the client needs. I see massage as an integral aspect in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. As a Registered Massage Therapist, I strive to provide my clients with the best care possible.

 

Along with my traditional massage education, I have had the ability to expand my current skills by attending workshops and continued education sessions. I am familiar with Thai massage and have acquired my Hot Stone Therapy certificate. However, I feel that my knowledge of Active Release Therapy and Soft Tissue Release has been most valuable in treating individuals on a daily basis. Ive also had the opportunity to add Structural Integration into my practice and have had great results with helping my clients.

 

Upon graduating from Georgian College in 2010 I began practicing in the Parry Sound area. Originally from Orangeville, Ontario I have been thoroughly enjoying my time in cottage country and now consider it home. In recent months, I have worked hard and successfully opened my own clinic, it has been both educating and gratifying to experience the changes and knowledge I have gained as a business owner.

 

I consider myself to be personable and open-minded, willing to not only treat but teach my clients about prevention through self-care and routine treatments.

 

I hope to see you soon!

THE OSTEOPATHIC APPROACH

TREAT THE PERSON, not the disease – TREAT THE CAUSE, not the symptom/effect

Mobility is essential to health. Reduced mobility can lead to pain, dysfunction and inherently to disease. Symptoms often show up in a different part of your body from where the problem actually originates, which means there may be several factors contributing to the symptoms you experience, for this reason I believe it is essential to assess and treat the whole person.

 

Our bodies are brilliant in design. Our most vital structures, like organs, arteries and our nervous systems are well protected. Our bodies prioritize the wellbeing of our vital structures to maintain their functions.

 

We have certain boney structures capable of bear weight and connective tissue that allows us to transmit forces though motion.

 

In health, our bodies regulate themselves and we are able to move freely. When something gets moved out of its proper position, our bodies compensate and decrease mobility where necessary to preserve vital structures that have been affected. As a result our musculoskeletal structures compensate and become inefficient. This can trigger fatigue and inflammation and lead to reduced mobility, pain and dysfunction.

 

Osteopathic treatment is efficient, which helps to minimize the number of visits you need. On average, I would see a person for 2 to 4, one hour treatments to deal with any given complaint. It is a “correct it, and leave it alone” therapy. That is, you don’t need to keep coming back to maintain change after it has been attained in these few sessions. The restoration of mobility, you can gain from Osteopathic Treatment is, in most cases long term.

Heather Reaman – Registered Massage Therapist

I am a recent graduate from Sir Sandford Fleming College. I’m a registered massage therapist and in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO). All though being a recent graduate I have lots of experience through Fleming’s student clinic. I have been working with the general public for a little over 2 years now and I have gained experience with a variety of injuries and conditions, working with varsity athletes to your everyday senior’s. I really enjoy doing assessments to pin point problem areas to give you the best treatment possible, to get you back to your everyday life as soon as possible. I have an interest in pregnancy massage and plan to expand my training so I can work with high risk pregnancies in the near future. I also enjoy working with neck aches and pains, shoulder injuries, leg injuries, I also enjoy giving a relaxation massage. I hope to expand my knowledge with taking a variety of courses within the next few years. I would love to have you come in and assist you with increasing or maintaining your wellness goals.

 

I hope to see you soon.

Allie Weeks – Registered Massage Therapist

I am a recent graduate from Georgian College. At the public clinic at Georgian College, I have gained 2 years experience working with athletes, pre and post-natal, fibromyalgia, geriatrics and much more. I enjoy working on injuries, anywhere from carpal tunnel to sacroiliac and piriformis pain to sprained ligaments and TMJD. I believe that in order to get the best results, you must have a thorough assessment to find the problem and therefore have a targeted treatment. I also believe that to accompany a targeted treatment, the client must do remedial exercise at home to get quick and lasting results. I am certified in Rock Tape, this taping technique accompanies my clients with their recovery and their home exercises and stretches to assist in a quick recovery. In the future, I want to expand my knowledge by taking Active Release Technique, Graston Technique, Structural Integration and Soft Tissue Acupuncture.

I hope to see you soon.
