About Brianne  

Brianne’s first experience with massage therapy occurred while she was in school for kinesiology on an athletic scholarship in the U.S.A. Initially she was in the habit of getting a quick massage to warm up before events and saw great results from this. As time went on she noticed more and more of her fellow athletes getting massage after events as well. She saw the great affect this had on recovery times, but it wasn’t until she returned to Canada that she really saw the full potential of massage. Here she quickly saw that massage was actually more effective for a lot of conditions than other similar treatment options. After discovering that massage is actually a 3 year, 3000 hour program in BC she was sold. In 2011 she began her schooling to become a Registered Massage Therapist.

While in school she discovered Dr. Vodder’s Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD). She saw first hand how this technique was effective for a range of conditions that no other treatment techniques could match in terms of effectiveness. She saw MLD effectively treat women with lymphedema following mastectomies, burn victims with intensive scarring and athletes with fresh injuries. Seeing the difference that MLD could make in a person’s life inspired her to upgrade her training and now she is 1 of only 3 therapists in the Central Okanagan able to provide Dr. Vodder’s Manual Lymphatic Drainage.
