Yvonne has been a registered massage therapist since 2010.  She specializes in therapeutic and sports massage.  She has undergone extensive training to become certified in many movement/stretch therapies.  Some of these specialties are:

  • Fascial Stretch Therapy (currently certified Level 2 - working towards level 3)
  • Active Isolated Stretching - basic
  • Myoskeletal Alignment

Other techniques include

  • Kinesiotaping
  • Myofascial Cupping and Gua Sha Techniques

As a therapist she believes it's very important to keep learning in her field and to keep asking questions about other modalities as massage compliments many other treatments such as chiropractic and physiotherapy.  By working along side these modalities the client can have a better healing experience.

She has worked tirelessly to change the perception of massage therapy from a luxury service, to a mainstream health service that positively impacts one's physical, mental and emotional well-being.  By becoming published in YEG FITNESS 3 times so far, she educates her readership on all information related to massage therapy.  Starting in 2017, she will be a regular contributor to YEG FITNESS and will continue her research to provide quality informative articles.

Yvonne has been heavily involved in the Crossfit community since 2006.  In recent years she has been training and competing in the sport of powerlifting.  In her first competition she was awarded first place in her age and weight class as well as "best overall female lifter".  Since then she has trained exclusively in powerlifting and has become a nationally ranked .  In April 2015, she placed 3rd in her age and weight category.

As an athlete Yvonne believes in having a team of people to help her with her recovery.  She uses massage, chiropractic, physiotherapy and professional coaching to help guide her through her training and keep her injury free.
