Registered Massage Therapist
RMT, BSc., Kinesiology
Pauline’s massage work highlights wellness through fostering mind and body connection. She truly believes in a holistic approach to health, and that mind-body wellness are a pair that must be nurtured and strengthened together.
Pauline teaches basic breathing exercises during her treatments as a tool to encourage nervous system regulation and calm, two important ingredients for fostering relaxation and healing.
Pauline brings with her 10 years of hands-on experience working with expectant families. Her career in wellness began as a Childbirth Doula after her second daughter was born in 2011. Since then, she has helped dozens of women prepare for childbirth by providing education, advocacy skills, and physical and emotional support throughout her clients’ pregnancies and births.
Pauline became a Registered Massage Therapist in 2017 after completing the two year program at the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy. While still in massage school, Pauline was able to complete the Trimesters Pregnancy Massage training which included a placement at Sunnybrook Hospital in the High Risk Pregnancy Unit. During that placement, she realized that having previous hands-on experience with pregnant women was a gift, and that once she would become registered, she would naturally become known as the therapist who focused on pregnancy massage. She believes that becoming an RMT was the highlight of her Doula career, as massage proved to be the most valuable tool she could offer to her pregnant clientele. Pregnant women make up about half of the clientele she sees regularly.
Pauline studied for two years to become a Prenatal Instructor and earned her certificate in Childbirth Education in 2015 which allowed her to teach fun and interactive prenatal classes both in hospital and in private settings.
Pauline also received a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology in 2007. Her and her husband Jason got married that same year and started their family. Today they have 5 high-energy kids who keep them very busy. She enjoys spending time with her family outdoors all year round.
Pauline’s focus now is her massage work, and she is thrilled to be joining The WOMB Vaughan and its team of wonderful practitioners. Pauline understands the importance of building healthy connections with her clients and colleagues that is based on trust and respect. Through education and collaboration, she is excited to help foster wellness and healing to The WOMB Vaughan community.
