Cassidy Hodgkin RMT
I moved to Vancouver to pursue a BA in music, but ultimately was looking for something more therapeutic and hands on. I decided to switch my focus into becoming an RMT and I graduated from WCCMT in 2007.
I always had a fascination with pregnancy, birth and babies. This fascination turned into a passion as I dove into the massage therapy profession. I have been immersed in Women’s Health my whole career, educating myself with pregnancy, labour, postnatal care, C-section prep and recovery as well as classes focused on the pelvis, TMJ, CranioSacral work, spinal alignment, headaches and migraines. When I’m not focused on pregnancy or postnatal massage, my other favourite people to treat are infants. It just became a natural progression.
My nurturing and intuitive nature creates a safe space for patients to be in a balanced and healthy state by incorporating the best treatment approach for their lifestyle. I have the ability to treat at any depth while still being gentle and my treatments are uniquely formulated to fit the needs of my patients. I often include the use of myofascial and trigger point release techniques, Swedish massage, joint mobilization, lymphatic drainage, CranioSacral Therapy while offering practical home care advice.
After having experienced life as a pregnant person, two completely different births and what life is like once baby arrives, I understand the importance of empowerment, education and self care during this time. My big epiphany was that you not only birth a baby, but you birth into a mother. Also having two very active boys in sports, I am used to treating youths. I love to treat the whole family from babies to grandparents, and I welcome all people to my practice. I strongly believe in the ability of massage therapy to impact all levels of health at any age.
