I have been in practice since 2002 and am a graduate of the Sutherland-Chan School & Teaching Clinic. Even prior to becoming an RMT, I found massage therapy to be almost magical in it’s effects and scope. As a former professional dancer, it was a rare but necessary indulgence and I vowed to unravel it’s mysteries one day.

I have since studied many forms of massage and bodywork in order to understand the science and practical applications behind the magic. My approach combines swedish massage, acupressure, trigger point therapy, orthopedic testing and self-care exercises to help my clients achieve the best possible outcomes. I have worked in a variety of settings including gyms, multi-disciplinary clinics and do housecalls. I also spent several years as a teacher and clinical supervisor and strive to educate as well as treat.

I have also been a doula and infant massage instructor, having received special training in pre-natal and post-natal massage as well as infant massage. I am a member of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario and the Registered Massage Therapists Association of Ontario.

Introduction to Dora

by Dora Jackson | About Massage Therapy

In so many ways I find it magical how people respond, how much [therapy] can do… I trained in a lot of different kinds of massage therapy so that I can draw on each of them… I tailor my treatments based on what I feel my clients need and what they ask for. Dora Jackson
