Registered Massage Therapist (RMT)

Received her certification five years ago.

Specializes in:
• deep tissue - is similar to Swedish massage. The deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

cupping - loosens muscles, encourages blood flow, sedates the nervous system. Used to relieve back and neck pain, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism and even cellulite.

pre- and post-natal massage - is well known for relaxation, stress reduction, pain relief and other health benefits. Unique postpartum benefits include hormone regulation, reduced swelling, better sleep and improved breastfeeding.

myofascial release - puts light, sustained pressure on client’s soft tissues to release fascial blockages and restrictions. The techniques lengthen fascia, and frees up muscles to create greater flexibility, reduces pain and increases immune function.

Active as a young teen in - hockey, soccer, golf and slow pitch - Morgan was about 14 years old when she first recognized the benefits of massage for those who are into sports.

After considering nursing as a career choice, in her late teens, Morgan became aware of the courses offered at the Massage Therapy College of Manitoba, and signed up for their two year program.

“I thought it was an intriguing career,” said Morgan. “And a great way to combine anatomy and physiology, and apply it with hands-on skills!”

After graduating as a registered massage therapist (RMT), Morgan worked at a gym for a couple of years, and then at a few studios around the city, before coming to Academy Massage Therapy about a year ago.

What makes it a good day for her? “I like the satisfaction of helping a client feel better physically, and have a better day,” she said. “It feels good to be able to give relief to clients who have been suffering from a specific injury or chronic pain, and figure out what works for them.”

“It’s an active job,” she noted. “I like working with people - the positive atmosphere, the team atmosphere. And I’ve got a great boss!”
