Ava Brown, Registered Massage Therapist
Hi there! Thank you for stopping by.
A little about my career: I have been a member in good standing with the New Brunswick Massage Association, and the CMTNB, since graduation from CCMH (Bedford NS) in 2006. I have a lovely blend of massage experience, thanks to years of working in different spas, gyms, health clinics, a yoga studio, as well as outbound work for people in their homes and office environments.
TMJ dysfunction is a niche market for me. This work can aid in decreasing intensity, and frequency of migraines, headaches, upper body tension, tooth pain, and mobility of the jaw. I have a keen interest in energy, energy techniques, and how it all affects the body.
I am a firm believer in “where the mind goes, the body follows.
I am also trained to help you with the following:
- Myofascial release (Cupping and gua sha would also be in this category)
- Deep tissue techniques
- Prenatal massage
- Therapeutic hot stone
- Have taken workshops in learning how to better treat clients who have PTSD
- Relaxation massage
- Treatment for those with chronic pain conditions such as arthritis, and fibromyalgia
- Certified in Reiki (Level 1 only, thus far)
I hope this is clear and helpful. Thank you so much, and I look forward to working with you!
