Innovate Fleetwood Chiropractic & Massage Therapy
Meet The Team
I am a recent graduate from VCMT where I’ve obtained my diploma with honors in Massage Therapy. My interest in the health sciences originated from my experience with injury and rehabilitation in competitive sports. I grew up playing basketball, soccer and combat sports such as kickboxing. With my experience with injury I became fascinated by the use of soft tissue manipulation creating a better overall wellness of the human body and mind. This inspired me to pursue a career helping and caring for others with therapeutic touch as well as providing an opportunity for focused education about exercise and body awareness. I believe that massage therapy is beneficial in improving the function of human movement as well as reducing pain and stress intensity by helping stimulate the limbic system and the production of endorphins.
"Leanne is a 2018 graduate of West Coast College of Massage Therapy. Her passion of working with people along with years of weightlifting experience and rehabbing her own injuries made the choice of being an RMT a fulfilling career for her.
She believes that every patient is unique and responds to types of modalities used in treatments differently, therefore develops treatment plans specific to each individual patient to optimize their goals. She works with patients to help speed the recovery process from acute and chronic injuries, conditions, to aid in relieving stress, improve posture, optimize sports performance and also for the maintenance of good health. She treats a wide variety of orthopaedic conditions, but also treats many neurological conditions.
Throughout school, she was very fortunate to have had the opportunity of working with a variety of patients at outreaches such as the Multiple Sclerosis In-Reach, SPEC In-Reach (Parkinsons, Cerebral Palsy, etc), with the UBC Varsity Team, and BC Women's Hospital.
Her practice focuses on combining swedish massage with trigger point release, IASTM, myofascial release, neuromuscular techniques, stretching, and often the use of hydrotherapy, in which hot stone therapy may be incorporated depending on each individuals needs, how their body responds, and the patients preferences. Her treatments are therapeutic yet relaxing.
In Leanne's free time, she enjoys being outdoors, spending time with friends and family, going to the gym, cooking and volunteering."
