Leah Karges

Registered Massage Therapist
RMT
Leah graduated from Sutherland Chan in 2004 and spent the next two years in Windsor. During that time, she gained an appreciation for how a team of therapists can achieve the best possible results in the shortest time. In 2006, Leah returned to school to study Kinesiology at the University of Windsor. While there, she made the honour roll and was awarded a research grant in environmental physiology with a Canadian Research Chair Professor at Brock University.

After completing her thesis, she focused on increasing her skills as a massage therapist, particularly her fascial release techniques. She completed several courses in NISA (Neuromuscular Integration and Structural Alignment) and SI (Structural Integration), and completed McMaster’s medical acupuncture course. She is M2T-Blade certified and has attended several workshops and events in her field.

Leah creates treatment plans for a range of conditions. She can help clients suffering from repeat occupational stress, those introducing new or more intense physical activity, and those living with chronic pain. But, her passion shines through in her work with fascia, her knowledge of release techniques, and her focus on athletic injury rehabilitation and functional training to prevent further injury.

When not chasing after her twins, she and her family love to hike, swim, and canoe in Algonquin Park. Leah also runs and trains in plyometrics and Pilates. In August 2015, she completed her first triathlon and she’s already planning to do more in the near future.

Leah is a proud member of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario.
