Iris grew up on Vancouver Island and attended university in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.  She discovered the benefits of holistic healing while experiencing a personal health crisis in 1995. Suffering from PTSD, Iris sought out help beyond the standard western practices and was amazed at the relief and peace of mind, which came from holistic work.  She is trained in several modalities and is one of many people in Canada to be certified in CranioSacral Therapy.  One of Iris’ success stories, where surgery was no longer needed is documented in the book, Working Wonders:  Changing Lives With the CranioSacral Therapy, published by North Atlantic Books

Iris listens to the client’s body, she listens with her hands, thoughts, energy and intuition.  By doing this she can tune into the healing mechanisms and offer assistance.  The clients body is always in charge and may not be aware of the problem or what is needed.  Their body knows the information and transmits it.  

Healing comes from within and our bodies have a natural tendency to heal.  If your body is injured, has a poor diet or environmental influences, then it may not be able to heal on its own.    Iris’s job is to help the bodies natural healing mechanisms and navigate all the roadblocks so the body can do its job.  The treatment is fully client driven.  The client does not need to be consciously aware of what is required.  

The work is very gentle and light.  Movements are never forced on or into the body.  All work is done in a relaxed atmosphere with the client fully clothed, resting on a massage table.

Continuing Education/Upgrading

Continuing Education/Upgrading

Continuing education is an integral part of any vocation today.

Registered Massage Therapists have mandatory credits to get every 3 years. However; I have had a passion for learning and finding our more about the mystery of the human body all my life.

This spring I took a cadaver class where we were studying the brain. It was fascinating and I clearly understand when it is said we only use 10% of our brain. What a “Motherboard” the human brain is.

I took 3 levels of craniosacral therapy 25 years ago from Upledger Institute. They have updated their curriculum in 2010. Cranial Sacral Therapy helps with headaches, motor vehicle accidents, concussions and trauma. Plus; it does address deep pain or tightness in the muscular system and supplies mental clarity.

Sometimes clients will experience emotional releases when having cranial or deep tissue massage. While in class we will be learning and exploring tissue memory and whole body diagnosis.

I am very committed to explore this field and upgrade to the present day understanding. There is a course in Edmonton which I will be attending September 15-18.

I will take one day of sport massage with James Waslaski on September 19. I took some classes from him 20 years ago. It will be exciting to see what he has added to his repertoire. Sport massage is a love of mine. I am a Certified Sports Massage Therapist with http://www.csmta.ca/

Although I am not free to travel to events as I once did I want to keep on the cutting edge of Sport Massage. Sport Massage will keep you in the game longer and with less injuries.

I am a committed lifelong learner so you may all benefit.
