Linda has been Registered Massage Therapist since 2012. She is a graduate of the West Coast College of Massage Therapy 3000 hour RMT program and joined the Catalyst Kinetics team in 2016. Previous to her RMT training, Linda also completed her Diploma in Sport Science from Douglas College in 2009. Since then she has completed continuing education courses in strength and conditioning, injury rehab and more recently has taken courses through the Fit (Functional Integrated Therapy™) Institute For MMR – Myo- Matrix 3D Release Technique as well as Fascial Abrasion technique tools.
Linda takes a versatile approach to overall health and rehabilitation – this includes a balanced and personalized plan of assessment, treatment and self-care. Linda was drawn to rehabilitation therapies as a result of her keen interest in the human body systems and her own experiences through athletics and injuries. Involving patients in their recovery process and treatment plan is an essential part of Linda’s treatment approach. Through school Linda was actively involved in a variety of outreach placements including with UBC athletics, GF Strong, George Pearson Centre and WCCMT’s Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s in-reach program. She also continues to volunteer her time at events such as the Ride to Conquer Cancer, the Granfondo and just this past June at the 2017 Provincial Powerlifting and Bench Press Championships in Langley, BC.
Outside of work Linda enjoys camping, hiking and plays competitive soccer in the MWSL. Linda is also a volunteer with PADS (Pacific Assistance Dogs Society), an organization that trains Service Dogs in BC. She is currently raising an Assistance Dog in training named Bison. He is a one year old Golden Retriever that spends a few days a week in Linda’s treatment room at Catalyst. Please let Linda know ahead of time if you don’t like dogs or consider booking with one of our other great RMT’s.
