Sabrina Yang, RMT

those problem areas. Sabrina recognizes this and can adapt to what your body needs anytime.

About Sophia Fischer, RMT

Sophia is originally from Nelson, B.C. and moved to Toronto in 2015 to pursue a career in physical therapy. She is a graduate of Sutherland-Chan School of Massage Therapy where she learned and worked within diverse specialty clinics, including spinal cord rehabilitation, with high risk pregnancy patients, in a sports clinic, and with individual athletes. Although not currently practicing as an acupuncturist, she also expanded her skills and knowledge to include acupuncture, which further expanded her knowledge and understanding of the human body and pathologies. 

Sophia's massage treatment style begins with ascertaining each patient's motivation for seeking massage therapy and developing an individualized treatment based on the patient's desired outcomes. Her fundamental philosophy is that each person's nervous system is unique and thus will respond differently to touch and pressure, and that different things will feel good to different people. Accordingly, her relationship with each patient is unique and her treatment approach corresponds to what their body needs at that time. 

Generally, Sophia likes to work with rhythmic techniques and broad compressions, combined with Swedish massage. She also likes to work with heat and gentle joint movement techniques to facilitate movement in areas that are feeling restricted. Slow progressions are a focus, as they give the nervous system time to adjust and relax. When working with patient's in pain, Sophia enjoys doing a thorough assessment with the intention of finding the perpetrating factor of the pain.
