Introducing Healthy Foundations Massage Therapist!

Seana Collins Mander joined the Healthy Foundations team in August of 2012. She is a recent graduate of the Sir Sanford Fleming College Massage Therapy program. She has enjoyed meeting the many people who frequent the clinic, and looks forward to meeting many more.  While she is new in her field, she feels blessed to have had a wonderful group of teachers, inspiring only the best in their students. She has learned a myriad of up-to-date techniques and is excited to put them into practice.
Seana loves her job, and relays how she is very fortunate to have an occupation where she can come in, and work in a way that benefits other people and helps improve their quality of life.  Her goal has always been to help people, and massage therapy is the perfect way for her to do that.
Massage therapy is a tool that has been used for centuries to benefit people’s health. This encompasses many things from decreasing stress levels, to treating impairments so that people can return to their activities of daily living.  Massage is used to treat sports injuries, sprains, and strains but is also used for things like arthritis, multiple sclerosis, repetitive strain injuries, whiplash, regular aches and pains, headaches, and a wide variety of ailments.  It can be deep enough to affect the deepest layer of muscle in a body builder, and yet gentle enough for a pregnant woman or even those with osteoporosis (who can’t have intense pressure on their bones).  She particularly enjoys treating prenatal mothers, any kind of orthopedic injury, “regular” aches and pains, and any sort of chronic pain that she can make a difference with!  Each client that comes into her clinic gets an individual assessment, coupled with an individual treatment plan for them.  Seana strives to provide quality, client-centered treatment to correct impairments and improve quality of life.  She also desires to provide a safe, and calm environment, free from prejudice.  This is one of the reasons she love working with Healthy Foundations. She feels it is inherently is a safe and calm environment at the clinic, where one need not worry about judgement.
Seana is recently engaged to her boyfriend (now fiancé) of 6 years.  She will be getting married in the summer of 2014.  A huge part of her life is karate.  She started taking karate when she was six years old and loves it to this day.  She has had her black belt for two years now, and loves teaching kids and adults of all ages.  She recently started rock climbing as well, and while it is difficult she enjoys the challenge.  It is one of her goals in life to stay active, as it is a huge part of wellness.
Seana looks forward to her time at the clinic, and is excited for the many exciting times to come.
