Andrea McCulloch, RMT

Andrea McCulloch, RMT

Andrea began practicing massage in 1995 after receiving certification in Massage and Holistic Bodywork in Bristol, England. After returning to Canada, she studied at the Sutherland Chan School and Teaching Clinic in Toronto to complete the requirements for registration as an RMT in Ontario. In 2011, she returned to her native Halifax to build her practice.

Over her 17 years as a massage practitioner, Andrea has developed a proprietary style, while still remaining true to her original holistic training. A special interest in postural alignment and body mechanics drives the focus of Andrea’s treatments as she endeavours to “find the cause, treat the cause”. Her techniques range from the very deep, to the very subtle as she employs both direct deep tissue massage and indirect neuromuscular techniques to support the body in restoring balance; each treatment being unique to the patient and his/her needs and comfort.

Andrea’s additional training includes Cranial Sacral Therapy, Reiki, Muscle Energy Techniques, Joint Mobilization, Perinatal Care. She has been an instructor at both the Sutherland Chan School and Teaching Clinic in Toronto, and the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in Halifax.

When not working, Ariana is happiest outside playing with her son and their animals.

During his long journey of recovery, Acupuncture had become a primary treatment plan, which produced positive results. This was the inspiration that began the journey to study Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture. Sandra now aspires to help others discover the benefits of Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine in their own healing journey.
