An island girl at heart, Kylie attended the West Coast College of Massage in Victoria where she received her degree in Massage Therapy. She is excited to be setting down solid career roots in her hometown of Parksville and is looking forward to helping local families improve their physical health. Her areas of expertise includes treating stress and posture related pain, repetitive strain injury, fibromyalgia, and migraine headaches.
Kylie enjoys working with new and expectant mothers and feels privileged to be able to witness the evolution of motherhood. Having attended the births of her nephew and niece, she understands the importance of support during pregnancy and birth, both through massage and love. These experiences taught her the importance of pre-natal massage, especially in the second and third trimesters when the weight of the baby starts to strain the back. Pregnancy massage is extremely beneficial and helps promote relaxation, soothe nerves, and relieve strained neck, back and leg muscles. With a calm touch and caring personality, Kylie puts her clients at ease while using her knowledge of the human body to encourage healing and natural pain relief. Her goal is to build therapeutic relationships by bonding with her patients and generating a comfortable, trusting atmosphere for them to relax in.
Later this year, Kylie plans on taking the Doula training course, which will allow her to bring her massage skills into more delivery rooms. By joining the Nurutre Collective team, she hopes to support new and existing families in the community and offer tailored services to target each of her clients’ needs.
