Pain has an element of blank, it cannot recollect when it
began or a day when it was not!

 

Emily Dickinson

When you experience injury and pain it is not uncommon to feel that you will never be well again! It is almost as if to avoid more discomfort your body convinces you that this is normal and goes into protective mode to try to minimize the pain you are experiencing. Unfortunately this can be the very worst thing for you as you quickly set up a new pattern of movement, guarding against further discomfort as you compensate for your injury or restriction, often causing a whole new set of problems as your body works contrary to it’s natural pattern.

 

That’s why here at Dragonfly Release we are passionate about working with you to provide a range of holistic therapies and tailored retreats, including massage, Reiki and creative activities and workshops, to help you restore and maintain your body’s natural balance, enabling your mind and body to heal themselves.

A Registered Massage Therapist, Jeff is an intuitive therapist and Reiki Master/Teacher who believes in working with you to find the root cause of your concern. He believes in helping you find healing and renewed enjoyment of your daily activities, whatever they might be.

With a lifelong interest in helping others Jeff finally followed his passion and began a second career in Massage Therapy, graduating from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy (CCMH), here in Nova Scotia. He extended his knowledge working within specialist clinics dealing with Chronic Pain, Addictions and Neurological conditions. Jeff has worked in several spas, including the five-star Fox Harb’r Golf Resort & Spa, and still works part time in the busy Massage Addict clinic at Larry Uteck in Bedford. He has also served as a RMT at several major and World Class sporting events, including being a member of the 2011 Canada Games Medical Team.

Since graduating Jeff has gained a Diploma in Foot Reflexology. He has continued to update his knowledge, taking additional training in Cupping Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy, Sports Massage and Rehabilitative Stretching, while also including Myofascial and Trigger Point Therapy in his treatment approach to better understand the body’s biomechanics and how best to promote healing. Within his practice, Jeff focuses on his patient’s posture and structural alignment to promote pain relief, he is only too happy to explain the anatomy and physiology of the body to ensure patients understand the treatment process and that these are in line with their wellness goals.

Jeff has also continued to develop his love of teaching which he gained as a Reiki Master/Teacher and is available for wellness based talks and demonstrations. In addition to teaching Reiki at all levels, he has created several courses offered to both the public and other Massage Therapists and has been a member of the teaching faculty at CCMH since 2011.
