Wensy_

Wensy Wong

Registered Massage Therapist
Neurokinetic Therapy
Anatomy in Motion

I was always certain of two things: I want to help people better themselves and, through my work, help them realize their potential. Whether I was working in the fitness, rehabilitative, or beauty and makeup industry, I felt most fulfilled when I was able to help clients build confidence in themselves and their abilities. Drawing on my skills and experience in these industries, and having an affinity to working with my hands, I made the leap to become a manual therapist, and have loved every moment since.

You don’t have to live with pain
Everyone experiences pain at some point and it can be debilitating. I started experiencing pain from occupational demands in my early adulthood. Pain became a part of my life and I thought it was normal. As I incorporated more fitness and sports, new injuries surfaced and they compounded over time. I found out through my work as a massage therapist, this was due to postural compensations, poor body awareness and movement patterns. Whether you’re experiencing pain or limitations from post-surgery, occupational demands, sport injuries, don’t let a minor setback deter you from a major comeback!

    My Approach
Being attentive, patient, and understanding to clients’ needs carries over to building a great practice today. Clients may have similar symptoms but the underlying issues are distinctive of one another. This is why I don’t rely on cookie-cutter methods when treating clients, rather my approach focuses on the global picture of symptoms, compensations, and history being presented. This allows me to cultivate a more effective treatment. My treatment approach is to help you feel better, recover faster, restore function, improve movement patterns and continue with injury prevention.My integrated treatment approach comprises of, but is not limited to, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, medical acupuncture, movement assessment, and Rocktape.

After-hours
When I’m not treating clients, I love to explore movement-based training and teaching yoga. I make a conscious effort to strive for growth and resilience in my practice. Having worked years in rehabilitative clinics, I see value in combining the experience and knowledge of practitioners in various disciplines. I take courses, workshops, and seminars across North America, as I am committed to continue my journey to provide my clients with the best treatment possible.
