Christine Anderson RMT
Being a massage therapist was not part of my plan.
Mostly an artist, a darkroom could swallow me for days at a time. I studied graphic design, but lacked the umph to make a career out of it. I sort of gave up trying and during a creative dry-spell, stumbled upon yoga in 1999. The combination of movement and breath brought forth a vitality I did not recognize, which sparked a cascade of curiosities that would eventually lead me to massage.
With a fierce interest in what lay beneath the contours of the skin, I quickly became an ‘anatomy nerd’ and participated in my first human dissection in 2005. Completely without intention, this curiosity led me to further study and in 2012 I graduated from the massage therapy program at Algonquin College (with honours).
Ignited by the wonders of human physiology and pathology, dissection became an annual event, saturating my brain with images of the body. I delight in the exploration of structural imbalance, and have absolute faith that the body knows how to heal.
As a massage therapist, I strive to offer treatments that simultaneously ease both physical and mental/emotional sources of tension. I believe with the right amount of pressure and a steady pace, physical sensation can be an access point into awareness. A wonderful state of presence exists when the mind can drop into the body with safety and ease. Many clients report slipping into a space somewhere between sleep and wake where the mind is at rest, but fully aware.
Although I absolutely love exploring dysfunction, massage is not just for treating what is wrong with the body, it’s also about highlighting what is right.
