KAYLEE CUMMINGREGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPIST
Kaylee Cumming registered with the CMTO in 2006. She combines the benefits of deep tissue work with relaxation techniques to achieve the best results. Kaylee enjoys the detective work involved in figuring out 'why' clients are presenting with pain whether it is old injuries, repetitive strain or postural imbalances.
Her treatments usually involve stretches and exercises to reduce pain, improve posture and to prevent future injuries. Kaylee has taken courses on Low back pain/dysfunction and Fascial Restructuring Technique and feels confident in getting her clients the results they are looking for!
Kaylee is passionate about helping moms to be; pregnancy is an incredible process physically and prenatal massages can be so beneficial to assist in the rapid postural changes and to decrease pain and swelling. She most recently took a course for RMT as a labour support/doula and is excited to be a part of this miraculous event for families. Not often talked about, postnatal treatment is also incredibly important with fatigue, neck and shoulder pain from breastfeeding as well being an emotionally draining and stressful shift. She is excited to specialize in this aspect of massage and to study midwifery in the future.
Kaylee enjoys a healthy lifestyle involving weight training, running and yoga. She considers herself a bit of a foodie and finds any excuse to make an event or get her friends together. She also enjoys relaxing outdoors, camping/cottaging and acting like a kid with her step kids.
