Heather Green RMT
Every person’s experience within their own body is unique and constantly changing. My aim is to use massage therapy and movement to help people develop a deeper inner awareness so that they can better learn about themselves and reclaim a feeling of power over their own wellness.
Developing a positive mental dialogue, redirecting expectations and beliefs about pain and movement and regaining trust in our bodies’ abilities to heal are paramount to wellness.
A solid 60 minutes spent passive on the massage table can feel wonderful, and for those living with insomnia, anxiety and stress, as examples, it can be just the ticket. But for those living with a fear or lack of movement because pain stops them, the relief achieved from a massage is only temporary. Another side to the treatment needs to happen, and it takes place off the table, being active.
I look forward to further directing my practice towards movement exploration, particularly with those living with acute or chronic pain.
With individuals who are ready to take a more hands on approach, I want to use our time together to explore their situation both on and off the massage table. Finding ways improve confidence and awareness, and to reintroduce movement in a safe and pain free way will allow a person to be their own therapist every single day.
Andrea Thornton RMT
Andrea has been living in the beautiful Comox Valley since 1998 and happily calls this place home.
She has been practicing therapeutic massage since 2011. She was trained in a 3000 hour massage therapy diploma program offered through West Coast College of Massage Therapy in Victoria. After graduating in 2010, Andrea returned to the Comox Valley to begin a rewarding career in healthcare.
During treatments, she uses a variety of treatment styles. She works with all types of conditions and aches and pains. Pregnancy & post partum massage have become very dear to her over the years.
Andrea enjoys continuing her education of therapeutic massage through workshops. Later this spring she is taking another somatics workshop to deepen her knowledge of the movement therapy.
Andrea divides her time as an RMT and a mother to a wonderful toddler and an artsy teenage stepdaughter.
