Jesse Hansen - RMT

Jesse Hansen, RMT

Jesse is a 2014 graduate from the West Coast College. She is very excited to have recently returned to the Comox Valley after spending the last nine years in Victoria.  Her interest in becoming an RMT started as a young athlete from her keen interest in the complex workings of the human body and her desire to have a career that would have a positive impact in the lives of others. 
 
Jesse believes Massage Therapy is a very effective tool that can be used to help reduce pain and stress as well as restore and maintain mobility so her clients can participate fully in the activities they love.  She believes that the Nervous system holds the key to breaking the pain tension cycle and allowing the body to heal and a balance is maintained between mechanical and relaxing massage techniques in all of her treatments.  She incorporates techniques such as Swedish Massage, CranioSacral, Isolytic Release, Muscle Energy Technique, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Pressure Release and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation.  These techniques are selected based on the client’s symptoms, tissue presentation and how the client responds.
She strives to achieve the best results for her clients by carefully adapting techniques & treatment plans to best suit her client’s individual needs.
