Healing Hands of Massage & Equine Massage Therapy, is grateful to all during this critical time, following our protocols, to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. If you have been travelling outside of Edmonton, visiting with loved ones or friends in regions in the province of Alberta with high ratios of COVID-19, we advice you to reconsider scheduling your appointment 14 days after you have had your visit for preventative measures. Note that that the vaccination for COVID19 is not for immunity but to protect you and others from getting serious symptoms.
Healing Hands of Massage & Equine Massage Therapy offers a holistic client-centered approach to health care that empowers clients towards total health and wellness. The clinic offers effective therapeutic massage treatments, addressing specific concerns as well as an overall focus and attention to all factors contributing to the problem.
Janet Law, RMT, CEMT and an acupuncture therapist, is a graduate from the Massage Therapy program at Sault College of Applied Arts and Technology in 2000. Janet is registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, a member of a regulatory body, and a newly appointed member of the Massage Therapy Association of Alberta, completing a minimum of 2200 hours of education.
Having been trained in Ontario as a Registered Massage Therapist and in private practice for 21 years, Janet’s approach is much like that of your Family Physician. Beginning with a consultation and a discussion of what your goals are, Janet starts the treatment with orthopedic and muscle testing, as well as blood pressure monitoring prior to your massage treatment. This allows Janet to understand why there is pain and how to address it in your initial treatment. So, based on the results of your postural analysis and assessment Janet may offer additional applications such as hydrotherapy (hot or cold applications), athletic taping, essential oils, acupuncture, and remedial exercises for home care, that couples the a holistic approach to health and wellness in her practice of massage therapy.
Did you know that Janet is an Equestrian as well? Apart from her clinical practice, Janet offers Equine Massage Therapy, a division of Healing Hands of Massage as Janet is also passionate about working with equestrians and their horses to improve the riders’ and the horses’ well-being as well.
