Chrysalis Registered Massage Therapy

 

Megan Lazaruk, RMT   

Graduate of the Canadian College of Massage Therapy 2011, Halifax NS. 

Prior to being an RMT I provided massage therapy as a clinical Aromatherapist certified as a Natural Health Practitioner of Canada since 2003.

I have studied Eastern and Western health sciences and bodymindspirit therapies for 25 years and have certifications in various natural health modalities: 3 years of clinical herbalism at Dominion Herbal College, clinical aromatherapy with Healing Scents Holistic Clinic, JinShinDo (the Way of Compassionate Spirit) acupressure, Usui Reiki, various qigong methods, Zero Balancing, two yoga teacher trainings, Yoga of Recovery training, Ayurvedic Wellness Counselling, Shambhala Warrior and Meditation training, 25 years of study and practice in Tibetan Buddhism, and recent training in Collective Trauma Healing with University of Inner Science, and Cranio-Sacral studies with Upledger Institute. 

I am a Sivananda yoga teacher since 2011 and use this knowledge when providing therapeutic exercise and home care.

I grew up training as a competitive athlete, am an active outdoors person, and have studied and practiced in martial arts and yoga for 25 years. I use my understanding of health, motion, and energy to help others understand their body, health, function and healing. 

I was in a car accident that damaged my spine and every joint of my body which lead me to my career in massage therapy. Learning very deeply the recovery and maintenance of all of the tissues and structures of the body, this informs my practice and ability to help you.

‚ÄčI have 10 years of formal education in anatomy, physiology, neurology, pathology, exercise physiology, and therapeutic exercise from various study disciplines. I have done cadaver dissection and watched dissections of every joint and tissue of the whole body including the brain. 

My continuing education focuses in: MIPA- myofascial integration and postural alignment / structural integration; Zero Balancing- bone and energy alignment; Cranio Sacral therapy with the Upledger Institute- cerebral spinal fluid and cranio sacral bone techniques; and I take ongoing courses with the International Myo Fascial Hub of Educators in the UK; Anatomy Trains Structural Integration Institute in Maine USA; and with the LAB of Enlightenment dissection lab in Colorado.
