Andrea Sinhuber, RMT Registered Massage Therapist, Birth Doula, Breastfeeding Counselor
Andrea completed her 3000 hour RMT diploma at the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy. She is an active member of the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia and the Massage Therapy Association of BC. She also practices as a Birth and Postpartum Doula.
Therapeutic massage can treat many different conditions from prolonged stress, nerve impingement, low back and pelvic pain, sport or overuse injuries, headaches, muscle tension, postural dysfunction and neurological conditions, to name a few. Considering the body as a whole, a therapist can discover the root of the dysfunction.
Andrea bases her individual treatments on each person's unique needs: through proper assessment, consistent treatments, and client education; the body begins to unlock, unwind, and heal itself beautifully.
Treatment techniques Andrea uses include: Swedish massage, myo-facial release, trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques, hydrotherapy and orthopedic mobilizations.
She holds an in depth understanding of the emotional and physical transition associated with a pregnant women’s body and the adjustment to motherhood. Andrea takes great care to educate her clients about proper posture and long term care; giving them customized stretching and strengthening routines to empower personal devotion to the healing process.
Andrea brings kindness, integrity, compassion, and a great sense of humour to everything she does. When she's not working hard to help others, she is spending time with her two crazy cats, working in her garden, cycling, dancing, and making her friends laugh till they can't breathe.
