Martha Ciana, RMT, offers therapeutic care to people of all ages, stages, and walks of life. She has a passion to get people moving and living their lives to their fullest potential.
Therapeutic massage begins with a needs assessment and an evaluation of impairments, such as a torn ligament or a sore back. The therapist is able to create a custom treatment based on each client's specific needs, making use of all their techniques and practical experience.
At Kinetic Care, a new client will take a brief interview and complete an intake form at the beginning of their first appointment. They will also undergo postural analysis and orthopaedic tests to assess their needs before a treatment is designed. Once treatment has been discussed, the client gets on the table.
Continuing education is a large part of professional massage therapy. Anatomy reviews, updating techniques and reviewing knowledge takes place on an ongoing basis. Martha considers her specialized knowledge and continuing education a toolbox of techniques that she can draw from for her clients. For her, the toolbox includes neuromuscular techniques, myofascial release, lymphatic drainage, hydrotherapy, hot stones, percussion and cupping.
Port Hope has a very collaborative culture when it comes to healing. Referrals are often made between professions and Martha has a large circle of referrals including psychologists, naturopaths, physiotherapists, acupuncturists.
Martha's relationship with Whale family chiropractic clinic has been ongoing since her graduation. In 2015, Martha moved her practice within their clinic and began working alongside the chiropractors. The results has meant a more collaborative approach to healing.
