Rehab & Recovery w/ Laurie DiGiulio
Laurie completed examinations with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario in 2000, and worked as an RMT in the province until 2014. During that time, she owned and managed a multidisciplinary wellness clinic, and acted as both faculty and administration at massage therapy colleges throughout the GTA. Her role in education included curriculum development and instruction, specifically in anatomy, physiology and pathology. As a military spouse, she has lived, taught and worked in ON, NS, and AB over the last 10 or so years, and has recently returned to NS to make the east coast her forever home. She has and continues to coordinate and lead study groups for healthcare professionals, present at conferences and develop and deliver her own continuing education courses. In addition to an in-person practice, she teaches online and in-person continuing education courses for manual therapists and fitness pros, and works as a surveyor for the Canadian Massage Therapy Council for Accreditation. In her spare time, you can find her at the beach, in the gym, sipping craft beer or holding her very needy cat Purrblo Escobar.

Ongoing Rehab Support
(5 x 30min - $300 + HST)
