Kirsten Mullin RMT
—Registered Massage Therapist
I graduated from Elmcrest College of Applied Health Sciences in 2005. I’ve been a Registered Massage Therapist for over 16 years and I’m in good standings with the CMTO (our regulatory college) & RMTAO (our association). My journey into Massage Therapy came early on in life, while I was training for my Black Belt in Karate I may have sustained an injury or two, and always found immense relief and support through Massage Therapy. It was then when my passion grew! As soon as I could I had a part time job in a rehabilitation clinic as a teenager and was treated more like a co-op physio student than a receptionist and absorbed all the education and hands on experience I could. After high school I spent 3 years studying Kinesiology and Health Sciences at York University and then continued my studies in Massage Therapy.
My approach has always had a strong hands-on treatment style with emphasis on Myofascial work & release, Trigger Point release, on table stretching, joint manipulations and the use of Cupping Therapy. Throughout the years I have attended numerous continuing education courses to enhance my skills. Some highlights include Facial Release, Cupping Therapy, and orthopedic assessment, advanced anatomy with cadaver specimens, Infant Massage, Pregnancy Massage and Postpartum pelvic floor rehabilitation.
My passions lie in helping the postpartum person achieve proper care, support and rehabilitation of their body and pelvic floor after giving birth! My own personal journey into motherhood is where this passion or rather mission arouse. I gave birth to a beautiful premature son via emergency C-section at 26 weeks gestation!! From my own recovery experience I began to release a gap in the standard of care and saw little focus on rehabilitation after giving birth. As a GrowCo Ambassador I supports their mission in “Raising the Standard of Care for Postpartum Women!” Whether you are 4 weeks or 40 years postpartum I am here to support you!
In my personal time I enjoy being a wife and momma to an exceptional little boy! I best describe being a mother as “The greatest fears I’ve ever known and the deepest love I could ever imagine possible.” I thoroughly enjoy time at home being creative sewing, knitting, crocheting, gardening, baking, yoga & meditation, and crafting with her son. Being outside in nature is also a passion as she lives near the water, beach and beautiful forest trails.
My future clinical goals are to continue building her knowledge and skills in postpartum rehabilitation, to raise awareness and offer as much support as I can! I also am in the works of bringing group focused rehab to Thompson’s!
See you on my treatment table!
