Brittany MacCuspic, RMT
Registered Massage Therapist
The complex interconnectedness of the body has forever inspired Brittany. Hailing from a small coastal community in Northern Nova Scotia she began her educational journey at Cape Breton University where she studied Sports and Human Kinetics. Years later, in 2010, she went on to obtain her Massage Therapy diploma from ICT Northumberland College in Halifax. After working in Halifax for four years Brittany made the jump to a multidisciplinary Toronto-based clinic. While in Toronto she studied at the Canadian College Of Osteopathy which ending up catapulting her into a Yoga Teacher Training program. Brittany has done extra studies in Myofascial release, Thai Massage, Chapman's Reflexes and Craniosacral Therapy.
With 8 years of post-secondary education in anatomy, physiology and treatment methodology, Brittany offers unique treatments. Pulling from so many different treatment styles lends the opportunity to develop specific plans for each patient. Her philosophy is simple: “It is my job to provide a safe space for the body to express itself so that I may see where dysfunction is holding. Only after an extensive interview, orthopedic testing and palpation can I see where the body is suffering. It is my goal to relieve the body of that suffering, to help regain its ability to properly circulate fluids so that tissue may heal.” Brittany uses some of her treatment time educating the patient on their dysfunction so that they may become active participants in their bodys’ overall health and wellbeing by offering corrective exercises, movements and mindful cues to minimize postural dysfunction.
Brittany relocated to Kelowna in July 2021. She is thrilled to be part of the team at OHP and looks forward to learning more about YOU and how she can help!
