Natacha Bray, RMT
Natacha graduated with Honours from the International Academy of Massage in 2005. She is registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) and the Registered Massage Therapists’ Association of Ontario (RMTAO).
Always having an interest in health care with the desire to work with and help people, Natacha decided to pursue a career in Registered Massage Therapy as a more ‘hands on’ approach to this endeavour after completing a BA in Psychology from Carleton University. Natacha believes that the benefits of massage
today are varied and far-reaching. Massage provides relief to people of all ages – from infants to seniors – and from all walks of life – from the weekend or competitive athlete, to the home gardener or caretaker, to the overstressed, overworked office worker, to the balancing act of being a parent. Natacha believes
that massage offers a drug-free, non-invasive and humanistic approach based on the body’s natural ability to heal itself. She also believes that massage is an important part of physical rehabilitation programs and that massage helps relieve stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.
Natacha strives to restore, promote and maintain the function and health of her clients, easing pain and anxiety, while at the same time promoting good health and a sense of well being. She specializes in therapeutic treatments, prenatal, deep tissue, sports and relaxation massages using integrated techniques such as trigger point therapy, myofascial release, joint mobilizations, contract relax stretching and passive stretching. Throughout her years as an RMT, she has treated clients with a diversity of issues ranging from rehabilitation of sprains and strains, fractures and dislocations, and post-surgeries; shortening recovery time for injured athletes; reducing pain from arthritic or rheumatic conditions; and providing relief from muscle tension or headaches/migraines/post-concussion syndromes/TMJ Dysfunctions from stress or postural imbalances and motor vehicle accidents, and simply for relaxation purposes. She also strives to provide an open and safe environment for clients from all diversity of backgrounds.
When she is not at work Natacha is generally biking or hiking or catching a movie with friends.
