Rebecca Kitchen, RMT

Rebecca has been an Registered Massage Therapist for over 6 years now, she also specializes in contemporary Acupuncture where she focuses mostly on pain. Rebecca graduated from D'Arcy Lane Institute of Massage therapy in June 2007 and was registered directly after.

She completed the course at McMaster University for Contemporary Acupuncture in December 2010, working with many great health practitioners who have worked with a variety of different athletes and pain conditions. The main focus of the type of acupuncture Rebecca uses is to decrease pain and maintain or regain muscle and nerve function to the body. This type of acupuncture works well in conjunction with massage therapy to help stretch the tissues and bring circulation back into the area to help flush out the toxins that may have been released in the tissue that were trapped from injury.

Rebecca has also taken myofascial release courses, doula support (to help increase the effectiveness of pregnancy massage and help to show the partner of the mother how to help during labour.) Rebecca has partnered up to teach a workshop on Comfort Measures for childbirth, she is working with a doula who has some experience who is also a yoga instructor. This course helps to teach partners how to use eachother for support during labour and maximize comfort while decreasing pain significantly. This workshop is partnered up with Radiant Health Yoga in Woodstock.

In January 2015 Rebecca took the Contemporary Cupping Therapy Course in Vancouver BC. She can do full body cupping for several different purposes. The most popular purpose being pain from fascial restrictions, inflammation, scar tissue from either injury/ surgery or repetitive use. Cupping can also help with cellulite, blood flow/circulation, decreased swelling and increased lymphatic drainage anywhere in the body and she has extra certification on Cupping Facial Rejuvenation.

Completed assessment courses allow Rebecca to use these skills to find the source of the pain, whether it be from where the pain occurs or further from the source. Indian Head massage includes some ear reflexology, these techniques help with stress, anxiety, headaches, sinus congestion, neck and jaw pain as well as just to simply relax and decrease the tension that accumulated in the muscles of the scalp.

Rebecca has worked in physiotherapy clinics, a naturopathic clinic, a hospital and with a chiropractor, she is aware of how all other health practitioners work together and refers to others when necessary.

Dayna has been with us for over a year and a half and has shown great enthusiam for her new career. She was in the first graduating class from Fanshawe College in April 2016 and was registered in August 2016. With a huge heart for animals and a particular interest in expanding knowledge and skills in prenatal massage, she is incredibly excited to join Rebecca's team. Learning has always been a passion of Dayna's, so she is looking forward to the opportunity to learn along side Rebecca and other Rmt's.

She also plans on fuelling her passion for learning by taking courses to specialize in prenatal and infant massage and myofascial release. Being very laid back and outgoing, she is thrilled to start this adventure and couldn't imagine a better team of Registered Massage Therapists to have as role models!

Stephanie Ewing, BA, RMT

I am a graduate with honors from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy. I graduated in June of 2011 and have been practising ever since. My first degree was in social work from the University of Waterloo, which I graduated from in 2005. I have completed a certificate in Pregnancy Massage through Trimesters Massage Therapy Education, an introduction course to cranio-sacral therapy from The Cranial Therapy Centre, Cupping massage from the College of Acupuncture, and therapeutic ultrasound through the National Wellness Institute of Education.

I became a RMT for many reasons! My initial interest in massage therapy came from my own experience. I had seen an RMT regularly when I was in university as a stress management tool and again for muscle injuries when I was a Salsa dancer/instructor. I began to learn about the holistic approach to health and the ability to help people manage pain, stress, injuries and prevent future issues through manual therapy. My interest and experiences in life brought me to massage therapy. I truly love my career and will continue to learn and grow to insure I provide
 the best treatment I can.

Amanda Ryan RYT 200 Yoga Instructor

 Starting the end of June 2018 we will be welcoming Amanda Ryan RYT200 to our Team. Amanda completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training through Soul Vibrations Yoga,and is registered with the Canadian Yoga Alliance (June 2018). She has also completed 50 hours of prenatal and postnatal yoga teacher training through Mamata Yoga. 

Amanda has been attending yoga classes here in the community for the past 7 years, with a love for Yin and Hatha classes. However, when her son Harrison was born in November 2016, attending Baby and Me yoga classes with him is what set her goals in motion. She realized that women in our community needed more support. Support to conceive, support to ease fear, pain, discomfort and anxiety during pregnancy and birth, as well as support during the postnatal period. 

After having experienced a complicated birth, struggles to breastfeed, and postpartum depression; Amanda set her sights on creating a community of women here in Oxford County who could support one another through pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Her prenatal and postnatal yoga classes have more of a community feel, rather than just 60 minutes of yoga and then parting ways. She prides herself on not only providing a safe and effective form of exercise; but on building relationships within the community.

In the future, Amanda would like to be certified in fertility yoga, couples yoga and toddler and me yoga.

Sherry Witczak RYT200 Yoga Instructor

I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training through Soul Vibrations Yoga in July 2018.

 Fitness has always been a big part of my life. I have run a full marathon and several half marathons and continue to run shorter distances. As a result of running long distances I suffered an injury and knew my body required more to stay healthy and injury free. That’s when I started attending yoga classes but decided I needed to learn the correct alignment of postures and decided to become a yoga teacher.

 I love to teach flow and yin yoga with an emphasis on proper alignment.
