To say that Mariane Talbot is a massage therapist of multifaceted talents is an understatement, as the breadth of her training encompasses many modalities, including deep-tissue massage, trigger-point therapy, myofascial release, ART Lower Body, therapeutic taping, TENS therapy, acupressure/shiatsu, manual lymphatic drainage and CranioSacral Therapy. Mariane is able to effectively combine these and other techniques she has learned to provide each individual with a customized, holistic treatment plan.
Mariane began her education in whole-body healing in the early 1990s with a focus on fitness, graduating with Honours from the Humber School of Fitness Leadership, and moving from there to the Sutherland Chan School of Massage, mastering Reiki Levels I and II, as well as gaining certifications in Hand and Foot Reflexology from the Ontario College of Reflexology, along the way.
Mariane is also now a Reiki Master and is able to use this skill to elicit mind-body healing. She combines this knowledge with her learning from the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction Therapy (MBSR) program to provide a truly holistic restorative experience. Accreditation from this program allows Mariane to support her client’s natural capacity for healing, creating balance and peace within the body and mind.
She has also completed a number of clinics, including those focusing on palliative care,high-risk pregnancy, multiple sclerosis, and the unique needs of seniors, allowing her to provide safe, effective treatment to her clients.
Mariane’s main goal in every treatment is to determine the underlying cause of her client’s concern in order to address associated pain. Mariane uses a variety of techniques from many modalities to customize a treatment plan for each client. She considers regular massage therapy to be a vital step towards living a pain-free, optimally healthy and relaxed life.
Mariane’s unique combination of therapeutic technique and energy-focused healing and release allows her the opportunity to work closely with clients, bringing them to a centred state of physical and emotional healing and, of course, reduced pain. She successfully brings compassion, focus, dedication and a genuine spirit to each individual she treats, evidenced by consistent results and an ever-growing clientele.
Mariane is a member of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, the Registered Massage Therapists’ Assoc. of Ontario, and the Canadian Reiki Assoc. and has worked out of a number of spas and clinics in the Greater Toronto Area.
