Marilyn graduated from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy with honours, receiving an Outstanding Academic Achievement Award: 2nd for the March 2006 graduating class and became licensed in 2006 as a Registered Massage Therapist under the Regulated Health Professions Act. Having worked in the insurance industry for 24 years in several departments including Marketing, Actuarial and Mutual Funds, she has found a home in the Health Care field.

While in school, Marilyn attained specialties in Sports and Geriatrics. She volunteered an additional 70 hours of massage beyond the required 30 hours. Marilyn has volunteered at the University of Guelph running club, Wilfred Laurier University Athletics Department, Trinity Nursing Home, the Cancer Society, Mental Health and the MS Society.  
Since entering Massage Therapy, Marilyn has been driven by results and success from her clients. She has continued to upgrade her skills by taking courses in Hot Stone Therapy, Shiatsu, Myofascial Release, Thai Massage, Strain Counterstrain, Orthopedic Massage, Advanced Laser Therapy for Musculoskeletal Pain and Chronic Pain, Nerve Mobilization and Anatomy Trains.  She is a Certified Laser Therapist and has successfully treated sprains, fractures, wounds, osteoarthritis, disc herniations, sciatica, nerve impingements, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, spinal stenosis, acne, bursitis and bone spurs.

Her massage treatments consist of a combination of Swedish massage, Shiatsu, Myofascial release, Trigger Point release and Deep Tissue techniques. Your treatment will depend on your needs, your medical history and your experiences. The techniques and pressure used will be based on your comfort level. Marilyn can effectively treat those who are sensitive to pressure or those who want a deep tissue or sports massage and everything in between.

Treatments are geared towards the individual, focusing on the specific problem but remembering that the pain is not always where the problem is. Marilyn offers chair and table massage treatments. She also offers laser therapy for specific conditions.    

Marilyn was awarded KW Record's Gold Award in 2012 for Best Massage Therapist in the Region and Waterloo Chronicle's Diamond Award in 2018 for Best Massage Therapist.  Thanks to all clients for the nominations and votes!  She was thrilled with the recognition.
