Alice Logan was born and raised in Owen Sound and moved to Milton after passing Brock University's Business Administration program in 1995 and her Registered Massage Therapy course at Sutherland Chan Teaching School and clinic in 1997. In 1999 she acquired the title of Certified Acupuncturist through the Academy of Traditional Acupuncture. She is currently a member of the Ontario Massage Therapy Association.
She subscribes to the Massage magazine and reads publications within the profession.
A registered massage therapist must complete 30 CEU's(continuing education credits) every three years. Alice usually completes 50- 75 credits. Alice takes great pride in continually up grading her skills to treat you better. She has attended conferences and taken introductory classes/ information sessions on many skills such as strain counter strain, muscle energy, joint mobilizations, sports injuries, Pregnancy Massage, reflexology, ear candling, feldenrais, movement therapy, yoga, therapeutic ultrasound, TENS machines, aromatherapy, anatomy review, visceral manipulation, craniosacral therapy, NISA, TMJ dysfunction's, neuromuscular therapy and, most currently, Symmetry( correcting your posture), to become one of Ontario's few Certified S.T.A.R. Technicians.
Alice is driven by her own injuries through her own experiences with sprained ankles, motor vehicle accidents, whiplash, getting kicked by a horse, falling on ice, and, what started her massage therapy career, a slipped disc. It's been a wonderful journey to encourage the gaining of more knowledge to help facilitate healing for herself and her clients.
Not only does she work from the text book, she works from heart- felt experience. She understands the frustration of being immobile, in pain and just wanting to get better. As she shares her experiences of what has helped her to continue to be able to work 13 hours days(yes 13 hours), combined with what she has learned in courses there is much to be learned on the pathway you take to wellness.
She has resources of places to refer you to if she feels you need a technique that she cannot provide. She works in conjunction with physiotherapists, naturopaths, family physicians, osteopaths and many other therapists who have specialized treatment
