Through her own recovery of injury and chronic pain, her schooling, and clinical experience, Tara has gained a proficiency in treatment skills for a variety of conditions.
While in the massage therapy program, she took special interest in energy work such as Myofascial Release and Suikodo, she has added cupping to her skill set, and continues to learn new techniques from her colleagues at One to One. She combines these techniques with her extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology to address your concerns and to give you effective home-care that will bring you closer to your maximum health potential.
Her multi-layered approach to treatment benefits from a variety of training programs, including: a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (Mount Allison University 1999), a Personal Trainer Specialist certification (Can-Fit-Pro 2003), a Yoga teacher training program (2004), a diploma in Holistic Nutrition (Canadian School of Natural Nutrition 2005), and finally, a diploma in Massage Therapy (ICT Northumberland College 2008). She further explored the world of health and wellness during her four year stint as a freelance columnist for The Chronicle Herald, and has been teaching with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition since 2009.
Throughout her career, she has stayed rooted in one chief goal: to teach people how to take control of their own health in order to find an optimal state of living. Her own approach to healthy living includes a whole-foods diet, high intensity fitness training, swimming, yoga, regular manual therapy, plenty of sleep, good art, lots of laughter, and love! And, not to be left out, her all-time favourite healthy choice: playing with her two Boston Terriers, with whom she trains to compete in Canine Agility.
