Gillian Vellet graduated in Massage Therapy from Medix School, London, ON, in 2008. She has worked at multi-disciplinary clinics in British Columbia and Ontario alongside physiotherapists, personal trainers, chiropractors, naturopaths, and acupuncturists. Gillian has 7 years of RMT and 16 years of Psychotherapy experience helping people integrate the wisdom of the body, mind, spirit, and soul.
Gillian weaves Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release, Active Inhibition Technique, Stretching, Hydrotherapy, Cranio-Sacral, Essential Oils, Manual Lymph Drainage, and Somato-emotional release into her treatment plans.
Gillian’s strength is her application of myo-fascial release in combination with manual lymph drainage, which is highly effective in the treatment of such ailments as:
Acute and chronic sports injuries; computer repetitive strain, headaches, and tendinitis; whiplash; TMJ pain; sinusitis and bronchitis; visceral digestive problems, IBS, bloating, constipation or diarrhea; pregnancy; breast health; post-surgery cancer recovery; fibromyalgia; psychosomatic pain.
Gillian also facilitates the holistic dual practice of one hour art psychotherapy combined with one hour massage therapy in separate sessions, which offers a unique, organic, creative learning, and body-centered approach to healing traumatic experiences and blocked energy stored in the body. This combined approach is highly effective in the treatment of depression, anxiety, learning disability, ADHD, PTSD, panic attacks, grief, hypersensitivity, emotional eating disorder, sexual abuse, and psychosomatic pain.
Gillian is passionate about helping people increase awareness and capacity for healthy change through integrating self-care, self-regulation, empathy, safe somato-emotional release, strength building, resiliency, and harmonization of the nervous system.
Gillian looks forward to working with you collaboratively to bring about wellness and healthy integrated change.
