Madeleine (Mally) Westlake, RMT
I am truly passionate about filling my life to the brim with passion, kindness and happiness. As it so happens, massage therapy fills those categories for me as a career in a very fulfilling and rewarding way.
I have been drawn to massage my entire life, though my deep interest in people and their health, and by means of my upbringing in a nurturing home on Vancouver Island. My mother introduced me to massage upon which it soon became a staple of our household that we’d trade (and still do) among the two of us. Once I had made this realization, the decision to pursue Massage Therapy as a career seemed natural and fitting.
After completing the 3000-hour program here in Vancouver and passing my board exams, I have been focusing on growing my practice and skills and am so thrilled to have found such a wonderful calling.
I truly enjoy working with each person I see to help them towards their personal health and wellness goals and I feel there is a strong connection between a thriving physical and mental well-being that massage therapy can help obtain.
My style of treatment tends to incorporate varying massage therapy techniques such as: trigger point therapy, myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, stretches, and more, based on the patient’s goals, needs, and preferences. I also incorporate a slow and flowing type of Swedish massage of varying depth so as to assist with muscular relaxation and support a healthy nervous system. Prior to every treatment I do a careful assessment to create the best treatment plan and ensure personalized homecare advice post treatment that focuses on his or her specific needs.
I look forward to meeting and helping you towards your health, fitness and wellness goals in the future.
