Annette Doose, RMT (Millbrook)

Annette Doose, RMT

Annette has been a massage therapist since 1996 and she also taught for 23 years in the Massage Therapy program at Sir Sanford Fleming College. Over the years Annette has seen how the stresses of life have taken an affect on peoples mental and physical health which is why each treatment will take on a holistic focus with the client’s needs and wishes at the center of care.

Modalities you can expect from Annette are Swedish massage, myofascial and direct fascial work, gentle joint mobilizations through indirect approaches, stretching and exercises and homecare.

What you can expect from your first visit is time to discuss your main complaints and goals, an assessment which will allow Annette to create a treatment plan, and then a treatment.
