Registered Massage Therapist (RMT), Manual Lymph Drainage and Combined Decongestive Therapist (MLD/CDT)
Since completion of the West Coast College of Massage Therapy Program in 1995, Amanda has worked with dedication and compassion in her field as a registered massage therapist. Beginning her career in Vancouver’s eastside, she learned not only the treatment of working with the body, but also worked with the many stressors particular to that community. First-hand experience with the connection between these stressors and inherent effects on the body prompted her to pursue a basic counselling course to further aid her patients.
With over twenty-three years in practice, Amanda’s breadth of experience includes working with various practitioners as well as additional training in the areas of manual lymph drainage and combined decongestive therapy, deep tissue therapy, myofacial release, muscle energy techniques, trigger point therapy and chronic pain. Along with an interest in supporting clients in home care through lifestyle and remedial exercise programs, she brings a calm, nurturing approach to client’s needs.
Amanda launched Wellstream Massage Therapy Centre in 2014. In 2018, she became certified in Manual Lymph Drainage and Combined Decongestive Therapy through the Dr. Vodder International School.
