Michelle Sciuk is a Registered Massage Therapist and graduate of Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic.
Working with horses from childhood taught Michelle to notice meaning communicated through touch and gesture, to listen deeply, and to trust her intuition and palpation. She grounds these experiences in an ever-growing, fine-detailed understanding of human anatomy and biomechanics, and the latest in pain science, to deliver a caring space and effective treatment to her patients.
A big believer in the bio-psycho-social model of care, Michelle understands the impact each person’s unique experiences living in the world can have on how their body feels and functions, and vice versa. She is passionate about empowering her patients through building body awareness and moving safely through barriers to deep relaxation (always at your own pace!) to interrupt cycles of pain and injury. Incorporating a variety of oil- and non-oil based massage techniques, as well as breathing, proprioception, and visualization exercises, Michelle tailors each treatment to patient needs. She provides affirming care to patients who are trauma survivors, and LGBTQ+ patients.
Michelle is a member in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) and the Registered Massage Therapists Association of Ontario (RMTAO).
