Nathalie has centered her Registered Massage Therapy practice on CranioSacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation. She has a light touch holistic approach to her Massage Therapy treatments and feels privileged to take part in her patients’ healing processes. She works with all ages from newborns to end of life and a range of different concerns. She has an interest in child care, infant care, pregnancy and birth as well as neurological disorders, developmental concerns, chronic pain, post operative treatment, emotional and behavioral complaints.
She believes the body is incredible at healing itself when given the opportunity. Her work is to facilitate a favorable environment to initiate the healing process. Using assessment techniques from CranioSacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation and complimented by orthopedic testing, she locates areas where the body needs support in healing. She uses a minimal amount of pressure to allow the person’s body to achieve self-correction. “From minor causes flow major effects.”
Treatments include assessment, health history intake questions, treatment and home-care suggestions. Please be aware when booking appointments some people need time to integrate the treatment afterwards, it is suggested non-strenuous activities after treatment.
