Along with working as a registered massage therapist, Sarah has been teaching at OVCMT for 15 years. Her primary roles have been teaching musculoskeletal anatomy, integrated sciences, and therapeutic exercise; however, she has also supervised sports massage and hydrotherapy clinics, and has been an examiner for practical exams.
Sarah's goal as a massage therapist is to help clients achieve pain relief, reduce tissue restrictions, improve joint mobility and thus restore quality of living. Through a combination of massage therapy and education on home care, such as stretching and strengthening exercises, hydrotherapy, and ergonomic changes at work or home. She can treat many conditions and provide activity or work-related modification advice. These home care tools will address the nature of postural imbalances and activity and work-related strains from faulty biomechanics.
Sarah is an active person who participates in many sports and has a lot of personal experience in sports-related treatments and injuries. She has worked with many athletes involved in Ironman and short course triathlons, mountain biking, BMX racing, hockey, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and dance/gymnastics.
