Kieu-Oanh (K-1) Nguyen, RMT
Registered Massage Therapist
Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) & Combined Decongestive Therapy (CDT)
I am a graduate of the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy School in Cambridge, Ontario and have been practicing at Wellington Ortho & Rehab, Guelph Sports Massage since October of 2010.
I have experience with sports massage, palliative care and multiple sclerosis due to my outreaches at CCMH School. My main focus is deep tissue massage, although I can help with many conditions such as repetitive strain injuries, sports injuries, chronic pain, tension headaches, tendonitis, muscle tension/spasm, anxiety and depression…etc.
Naturally I am born to be a very quiet and shy person. Massage Therapy is a profession that has helped build my self-confidence as well as increase my interaction with the public in places I never thought I would be. I believe in the natural healing effect of massage therapy and its miracle of replacing medication. I value massage therapy as one of the best gifts you can give your body and I am so blessed to be a part of helping people feel better.
Formerly, I worked in a factory. The repetition of the assembly line gradually caused my body to ache, and massage therapy had quickly become my choice of health care to relieve pain and muscle tension. The thought of becoming a Registered Massage Therapist then came into my mind. The ability to provide excellent health care, to help others, and to increase their sense of well-being had inspired my dedication to study.
Because I believe so strongly in massage therapy, I am now a Massage Therapist. Thanks for reading my bio and I look forward to seeing you in the clinic!
