Kathleen Vincent graduated from Everest college in November 2010 with a massage therapy diploma. She has been registered with the CMTO since December 2010.

Rebecca is a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) and Certified Yoga Instructor.
Her work as a massage therapist is focused on identifying and healing the root cause of your discomfort. She guides the mind and body back to a balanced state with the understanding that these two halves must be relaxed for healing to take place. She combines massage with breath awareness along with her knowledge of human anatomy, yoga, and meditation to facilitate functional movement and a sense of well-being in order to promote holistic recovery.
Rebecca has been immersed in natural healing for the past decade. What started as a drive for personal growth and healing has journeyed into a passion for helping others. Her compassion and curious nature motivate her to explore and integrate new techniques and therapeutic modalities that aid her clients on their path to optimal health and wellness.
Rachel is a certified Holistic Nutritionist, Health Coach, Yoga and Mindfulness instructor with over 10 years experience in the health and wellness field. She loves community and is passionate about the synergistic benefits of simple modalities of self-care like nutrition, eating more fermented foods, essential oils, mindfulness and yoga for a balanced and whole life.
Rachel’s approach to physiotherapy focuses on combining manual therapy and specialized
exercise prescription to help each individual reach their goals. She strives to create an
environment where each client can share their experience surrounding their symptoms, to
understand how those experiences are influencing their pain, and to work together to
create a treatment plan specific to each client’s personal movement goals.
She received my Master of Physical Therapy from McMaster University, since then she
has had the privilege of working with clients of all ages and through a wide variety of
injuries and conditions. She is currently working on my Diploma of Advanced Manual and
Manipulative Therapy Physiotherapy Program (you can read more about that here ). In
order to better serve clients she has also taken further education in vestibular
rehabilitation, athletic taping and Functional Movement Assessment, as well as being
certified to provide Acupuncture. Most recently she attended a course delving deeper into
our understanding of pain and what strategies we can implement to best avoid letting pain
stop people from enjoying what they love. She is passionate about providing evidence-based
treatment that is individual to each client.
Outside of work she enjoy playing basically any sport but especially softball (for the past
several summers this has included playing in St. George). She also enjoys hiking and
exploring with her German Shepherd, Clyde.
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy, discovered by Dr. A.T. Still in 1874. Osteopathic manual practitioners understand that the body functions as a unit, is capable of self-healing and self-regulation, and that the body’s ability to function is based upon its structural integrity. Through gentle manipulation, practitioners aim to restore movement where it has been lost and improve the quality of arterial, venous, nervous and lymphatic flow. By removing obstructions to this flow, the body demonstrates an amazing ability to heal.
Who Can Benefit?
Osteopathy can help individuals of any age, with both acute and chronic ailments. While osteopathic manual practitioners do not specifically treat diagnoses or medical conditions, osteopathic care can reduce symptoms and improve overall health. Some ailments that may benefit from osteopathic treatment include: acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain, sports injuries, repetitive strain injuries, headaches, breathing issues, digestive complaints, male and female reproductive issues, fatigue and difficulty sleeping.
