Her favourite activities include playing soccer and hiking to backcountry skiing. This active lifestyle, paired with her caring nature, inspired her to pursue a career as an RMT.
Growing up as a competitive dancer, Sydney developed a fascination with the movement of the human body. She came to realize that the integrated system of the mind, body and breath were the surest route to balance. She was drawn to the Spa Therapy Program at the Vancouver School of Bodywork and Massage where she learned the value of massage in creating that system of balance in the body.
Sydney has found fulfillment in her ability to help others. She constantly sought ways to build on her skills and to expand her knowledge of anatomy and treatment modalities, especially after a season as bodyworker for a Heli Ski Lodge. She then pursued and completed the intensive Registered Massage Therapy Program at Vancouver College of Massage Therapy.
Sydney’s treatments are personally attuned to each individual’s needs. She uses fluid, dynamic and integrative methods that focus on a collaboration with the patient while drawing on a variety of Swedish and deep tissue techniques including deep flow, Myofascial release, joint mobilization, trigger point and neuromuscular therapy.
