Carmen graduated from MacEwan University in Edmonton, AB in June 2017, and has been a member of the Massage Therapist Association of Alberta since then. She spent one year living and working as a registered massage therapist in Jasper before deciding to relocate to Yellowknife. Since a young age Carmen has been fueled by activity from various sports to hiking or biking, and it’s her love for sports that originally sparked her interest in Massage Therapy. Her main goal as a therapist is to keep bodies in motion.
Carmen believes all massage from relaxation to deep tissue, has therapeutic benefits. She incorporates fascial work into her massages, working from the surface down. She believes that in deep tissue massage, the fascia is just as important as the muscles below. She is also trained in Myofascial cupping and sports taping and strapping. Her aim is to work out tension, through the different layers, with as little discomfort as possible.
Carmen uses various techniques to give a well-rounded massage. From the initial assessment, to your time on her table, to the homecare she provides you; Carmen will be working with you to ensure she is giving you the best possible care.
When not in the clinic, Carmen is excited to explore Yellowknife and the surrounding areas. Looking for new trails to explore on her bike or paddling on the lake, she is eager to experience everything the area has to offer.
