Other athletes in Kim’s care participate in softball, baseball, marathon, volleyball, cycling, field hockey, soccer, swimming and curling.
She has attended many continuing education courses since beginning her career and has developed a unique treatment style which has evolved from a traditional form of Swedish massage to treatment plans individually tailored to discover the root of the problem instead of simply treating the symptoms. Some of the techniques incorporated into Kim`s treatment include Deep Tissue Massage, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Clinical Orthopedic Manual Therapy, Soft Tissue Release, Muscle Energy Technique, Trigger Point Therapy, and Kinesiotaping.
Kim works hard to balance being a mother of two, a busy practice, continuing education, and professional committee involvement. Throughout her life, her active participation in a broad array of sports including volleyball, badminton, athletics, ringette and rowing have given her the understanding of the demands and pressures of competitive sports. In her spare time, Kim currently enjoys biking, hiking and ice hockey.
