Choosing a career in massage therapy was a natural choice for Sadie. She knew she wanted to dedicate her career to the wellness and care of people in a safe, natural way. Her interest in human anatomy and physiology lead her to pursue a career as a Registered Massage Therapist, graduating from the highly regarded West Coast College of Massage Therapy in New Westminster. She believes a strong understandings of the human body paired with clear client/therapist communication are key components in providing competent, patient-centered care.
She has personally witnessed the benefits of massage therapy in the promotion of healing, improvement of mobility, reduction of pain and muscle tension and the decrease of anxiety and stress. Whether it be an injury, an illness, a temporary setback or a chronic condition, massage can provide some needed relief and ultimately increase the quality of life.
Sadie has been a competitive dancer for 14 years. From pointe ballet to jazz and from tap to hip hop, she is no stranger to the particular injuries and physical challenges of a serious dancer in training. Like any other athlete, a dancer can benefit from regular sports massage as part of a balanced training regimen to promote flexibility, range of motion, prevent injury and improve endurance, performance and recovery.
Sadie was intimately exposed to the struggles of children with cancer and the challenges of close family members when her sister was diagnosed with leukemia at a young age. It has inspired her to speak at several major fundraising events including the Coast Mental Health “Courage to Come Back Awards” and the annual “Gift of Time Gala” of Canuck Place, Children’s Hospice. She has regularly volunteered her time and fundraising efforts to BC Children’s Hospital, Balding For Dollars, Canuck Place and Children’s Miracle Network.
