Angela Morris, R.M.T. (Massage Therapist)
Angela Morris graduated from the Okanagan Valley School of Massage Therapy in Vernon, BC. It was here that she further developed her early interest in sports therapy and pain management. As a young athlete, she was always in and out of physiotherapy and massage therapy due to injuries incurred in power lifting, volleyball, basketball or hockey. As a result, she can sympathize with many of her patients and has developed a passion for helping active people. Since her graduation, Angela has worked on individuals ranging from maternity patients to professional skiers, marathon runners and rugby players (who nearly triple her in stature). Angela’s strengths are in neuromuscular therapy – a technique used to decrease trigger points to alleviate pain and increase function of muscles and also myofascial release – along with many other techniques.
On a personal basis, Angela grew up in North Bay and is happy to be back. Currently she is working on launching an online women’s holistic lifestyle company that has an extensive natural beauty resource, healthy recipes section, fitness, articles written by health and wellness experts and a lot more. Outside of the clinic, you may also find Angela working on her fitness, painting abstracts, or simply in a new book. Angela has been published in the Massage Therapy of Canada magazine for an article regarding the African Touch project in Uganda (http://www.africantouch.org/); she has remained a part of this project by recently writing up the pathology curriculum. She also just graduated from Holistic Nutrition School in New York City. Taking pride in integrating holistic health practices for the well-being of her patients, it has added a boundless complement to her massage practice.
Laura Caldwell, R.M.T. (Massage Therapist)
As a ringette coach, Laura works with athletes to train and maintain total body health. This includes a balanced approach to injury avoidance by using methods to increase range of motion, flexibility and strength. Regular treatment of injuries like sprains and strains, contusions, and joint pathologies is the life of a coach who’s also an RMT. She loves it!
Laura’s main goal as an R.M.T. is to help her clients (athletes, weekend and office warriors and everyone else!) to ultimately feel balanced and well. Through various relaxation and therapeutic massage techniques, she works to give her clients pain free movement, reduce symptoms of stress or medical conditions, increase strength and range of motion, and help them to heal from injury. She tries to get her clients to the point where they achieve and maintain a strong sense of health and wellness.
Vijanti Ramlogan Murphy, Reiki Practitioner
After working and volunteering in non-profit environmental work for the past ten years, Reiki was a natural avenue for Vi, as it incorporates understanding the energy around and within us. In addition, helping others in the community has been a cornerstone of her life and Reiki allows her to continue this journey. She is fluent in French and happy to have an opportunity to practice using it.
Outside of Reiki, Vi is a very active citizen in North Bay. She serves on the Board of Directors for one environmental non-profit and works for another one in town. She also enjoys music and has joined the Gateway Strings as a first violin player and occasionally plays as second violin in the North Bay Symphony Orchestra. Vi is also a trained doula, and has volunteered her birth support services for friends in the past. She encourages people to consider hiring a local doula especially in cases where the birth mother has little family to rely on locally.
