Our Registered Massage Therapists
Alison Kennedy, Registered Massage Therapist
Alison is a 2016 graduate of ICA’s Massage Therapy Program in Sydney, Nova Scotia, and is a member of the Massage Therapist Association of Nova Scotia (MTANS).
She has always been interested in assisting people in the improvement and maintenance of their health. Having discovered the program at ICA, she jumped at the chance to specialize in a hands on method of therapy, and believes that massage is an integral part of any health care routine. Since starting the program, Alison has discovered that there are many more benefits associated with regular massage than she had originally anticipated.
With extensive knowledge in proper biomechanics, posture, and techniques to manage and correct imbalances found in the body, Alison can assist the body’s natural ability to heal injuries, relieve chronic aches and pains, and impart a sense of overall wellbeing for her clients. She also believes that home care and remedial exercises can help to prolong the effects of massage therapy treatment, and can function to strengthen and maintain the health of body tissues.
Alison looks forward to meeting new clients, and assisting them with the maintenance of their health by delivering active and proactive treatment to everyone that visits.
