Registered Massage Therapist, Certified Athletic Therapist
B.F.A., RMT, CAT (C)
Serena is a Certified Athletic Therapist and Registered Massage Therapist. After a childhood filled with a wide range of sports (hockey, swimming, track and field, etc) and dance, Serena attended York University and completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance. After years of professional training with very little access to physical therapy, Serena became more aware of the great need for accessible body care for dancers. And so, she made the decision to enroll in York University's Athletic Therapy program.
Serena has worked worked predominantly with collegiate and varsity athletes, youth and professional athletes. Credits include Team Canada Water Polo, the Canadian Football League, professional dancers/actors, and the Greater Toronto Hockey League. As Serena spent more time in the clinic with her athletes, she became aware of her love for and increasing skills as a clinician. In 2021, she made the decision to attend massage therapy school and add a few more letters to her name! Serena loves the enhanced manual skills this training has provided her and is excited to have a wider range of offerings for her clients.
Serena has always been of the mindset that every(body) is an athlete, as our bodies are designed for movement! So whether your goal is to walk to the mailbox at the end of your street, to win gold at the Olympics, or anything in between, she will provide you with the same care and attention needed to achieve YOUR goal. Serena believes that since everybody is unique, treatment plans should be too.
In the future, as a therapist and professional dancer, Serena hopes to build preventative programs for young dancers as they work towards a career in dance, to ensure longevity for their bodies and artistry. She hopes that the future of all sports can work towards a lense of prevention so that our bodies can continue perform for us later in life, and we can all continue to find that inner athlete.
