Mike Maclean, RMT

Registered Message Therapist

My Approach

My approach is to treat the body as a whole, with the understanding that an area of discomfort may be influenced by the surrounding tissues as well as other, seemingly separate, parts of the body. During our treatments, I think of myself as a partner in my clients’ care, and attempt to listen to my clients and respect what they feel is going to be most helpful for them. I give exercises as suggestions to explore and to be used if they resonate with the individual, and focus on sharing my knowledge of how the body works so my clients can make informed choices about how they use it.

What to expect

  • Discussion of the client’s main concern, along with a review of key health information
  • Brief postural as well as gait analysis (as needed), and range of motion assessment (both prior to and during treatment), which support an outline of and mutual agreement to a treatment plan
  • Hands on treatment, with recommendations for one or two exercises or stretches to be done at home to support the treatment
