Steven Duguay RMT
Registered Massage Therapist / Reiki Master
I have been a member of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, and the Registered Massage Therapists Association of Ontario since 2012.
I completed a Relaxation Therapy diploma in 2010 through Stratford Career Institute and then began my lifelong dream of becoming a Massage Therapist at Everest College, completing two years of intense study in 2012. It is important for everybody to get massage, whether you are fit or inactive, young or old. I have a passion for providing treatments to people so they may decrease their daily stress levels, and this can be done through both Massage and Reiki.
I enjoy working with a vast variety of people, and people with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and repetitive strain injuries. I use Swedish techniques to warm the tissue and apply a level of pressure that the patient and I agree to. I do deep tissue work when needed, and use Myofascial Techniques, and Trigger Point therapy to release the muscle tissue from a hypertonic (tight) state.
Massage therapy provides relaxation, which leads to decreased heart rate, blood pressure, and cortisol levels, and increases blood circulation, range of motion (ROM) well being, and activities of daily living (ADL).

I began my journey as a Reiki practitioner in 2006, and obtained my Master level in 2007. Reiki is a wonderful modality which works well independently or incorporated into a Massage treatment. Stay tuned for more detailed information on Reiki.
