Gail Cumberbatch RMT

Massage Therapist

After 25 years experience in bodywork, I have come to realize that no two massage sessions are alike. Everyone has their own set of life experiences, everyone has a unique relationship to their body, everyone has their own needs.  In my work, I tailor each massage session to meet your specific needs.

My massage styles include Swedish techniques, aromatherapy and trigger point therapy.  I have had  extensive experience in prenatal and sports injury treatments.  My specialty is the energy I bring to my clients, to allow them to go to that deeper healing place within themselves.

To quote Carl Jung, “Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect had struggled with in vain.”  The benefits from a professional’s touch extend far beyond the immediate and soothing gratification you will experience.  Massage is powerful, you will find release from the daily trials of life, relief from tension headaches, from stress and depression and your sleep will improve, as will your general sense of well-being.  If your trauma is physical, strained or injured muscle, chronic joint or back pain, experienced massage can target that source of pain and move the body onto the path of repair and recovery.

I am a Registered Massage Therapist (RTM), who graduated from Kikkawa College in 1991.  I opened and have operated the Village Massage Clinic since 1992.  In 1996, I became an aromatherapist, adding the healing benefits of essences to my treatments.  What I love about my work is creating an energetic place, generating a positive healing connection where recovery can begin.

My personal philosophy is simple : move, eat all colours, laugh and sleep well.
