Tanya has been practicing massage therapy in Toronto, since graduating from Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic in 1997. She has extensive experience in treatment-focused massage therapy, and specialty training and experience in pregnancy massage and infant massage. Tanya was an examiner for the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (RMT licensing board) for 2 years, and then began teaching at Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic in 2001, where she taught various courses including pregnancy massage (theory and practice) and supervised the high-risk pregnancy specialty clinic at Sunnybrook Hospital.
What Tanya has to say about her practice:
I’ve always had a diverse client base, treating people of all ages and of various activity levels and states of health. Even after this many years in practice, I’m amazed at the body’s ability to heal and I always enjoy the opportunity to educate clients about their body structure and function and advise them on self-care. Pregnancy and birth have always been especially fascinating to me and I’ve taken extra courses to specialize in this area of treatment. In 2000, I trained to be a birth doula (a non-clinical supportive role, assisting women and their partners in the birthing process). I’ve been attending births ever since and thoroughly enjoy this specialty aspect of my work. I have two children of my own and have taken some time off from being on-call and attending births, but enjoy working with women and their partners through my course (Better Birthing: Labour Support Consultation) where I teach expectant parents about the birthing process, their body’s natural mechanisms for birthing, and how their partner can best support them. I also enjoy teaching infant massage to parents, which I offer privately or in group classes. It is my goal to provide families with good information to help them have better birthing experiences.
