CHARLOTTE MUSGRAVE, RMT

As a graduate from Victoria's West Coast College of Massage Therapy, I am passionate about what I do, and have enjoyed building a meaningful practice at home on the Saanich Peninsula.

I take a nurturing approach in my work, and try to recognize and address the specific needs of each person, by blending the clinical components from my education with life knowledge, grace and intuition.

I enjoy working with people who want to address root causes and underlying issues presenting as physical symptoms, as well as those who have an openness to let me attune to the body's energetics , allowing me to facilitate deeper release and healing from within.

I take great care in knowing my clients feel comfortable, and will always make sure that even the most therapeutic treatment maintains an element of relaxation.

My primary area of focus is women's wellness and supportive care through stressful life circumstances.​​​

WOMEN'S HEALTH & WELLNESS

Divorce
Traumatic birth recovery
Grief
Hormonal imbalance

Institutional stress/burnout (work, school)

Caregiver fatigue

STRESS REDUCTION /
NERVOUS SYSTEM REGULATION

Massage therapy is a highly effective way to reduce both emotional and physical stress. Using specific techniques that calm the sympathetic nervous system, it is possible to sooth the body and mind, restoring balance where it's needed.

TRAUMA HEALING

The body holds onto past traumatic experiences, and often needs physical guidance to release what is held.  Closely related to stress reduction, receiving supportive and compassionate care can allow the nervous system to soften into a state of safety and relaxation, which can enhance the process of healing from within.
