Hi, I’m Jessica. I have been a full-time Registered Massage Therapist with Pivotal Physiotherapy since 2012.
I was born and raised in a small city in Southeast BC, in an active family that enjoyed hiking, camping, fishing, cycling, and paddling. I was introduced to competitive sports at an early age, and spent my childhood involved in short-track speed skating, cross-country skiing, mountain biking, and Kyokushin karate. Being heavily involved in sport also meant early exposure to injury, and I developed a deep appreciation for my local massage therapist, who helped “fix” me countless times.
My post-secondary journey eventually led me to the MH Vicars School of Massage Therapy in Edmonton, where I earned my Remedial Massage Therapy Diploma. Prior to joining the Pivotal team, I worked in a busy massage practise in Edmonton. I am an active member in good standing with The Canadian Massage and Manual Osteopathic Therapists Association, and enjoy mentoring massage students and new graduates. My massage treatments are personalized to each of my patients unique needs, employing a variety of modalities including: Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Cupping Therapy, Manual Lymph Drainage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Joint Mobilizations, PNF Stretching, and Remedial Exercise. I am certified in Prenatal, Postpartum and Infant massage, TMJ assessment and treatment, as well as Instrument Assisted Techniques (Cupping Therapy and Gua Sha). I have a special interest in treating chronic pain conditions.
My husband Don and I, along with our children, are proud residents of Fort Saskatchewan. Most of our spare time is spent at extra-curricular sports and outdoors. We also love to travel back to BC, and to the Caribbean and Hawaii.
