Gillian grew up on Vancouver Island and was fortunate to compete in the highly demanding Equestrian sport. She competed from her childhood days to her early thirties and has travelled with her horse in tow to most of the interior of British Columbia to as far south as Arizona and California. The Equestrian sport inspired her to learn more about anatomy and help individuals with their pain management.
In 2011, Gillian graduated from 3000 hours program at Victoria Campus of the West Coast College of Massage Therapy. She has practised in a private clinic in Victoria for over 5 years treating a variety of different clientele, ranging from competitive cyclist to office workers to post surgical clients.
Gillian has taken a recent hiatus from the competitive world in equestrian sport and turning her focus on her career. In search of new opportunities she moved over to the mainland in early 2017. Gillian is keen to take care of your individual needs and goals with some of her favourite modalities, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, joint mobilization and muscle energy technique (MET). With her extensive knowledge in physical exercises she will address at home care to allow her patients to gain control over their healing process.
In her down time she spends it running with her dog and discovering new hiking trails in Vancouver area.
