ABOUT

Jan 19_2019.JPG

Melanie Mrus RMT, BHSc

Welcome to Mrus Massage Therapy! I am a registered Massage therapist regulated by the College of Massage Therapy of British Columbia (CMTBC), and I am also a member of the Registered Massage Therapist's Association of British Columbia (RMTBCA). 

 

A little about me? I am an original islander though, I have left to travel and learn throughout the years, but I keep coming back to Nanaimo and home is where the heart is! 

 

My treatment style? I would say my pressure is firm, but always adapting to individual preference. I have recently completed level 1 of the Graston Technique and I am always learning new techniques and treatments of symptoms. Above all else, I always strive to treat my patients in a professional, safe and secure way.

Coral Nast RMT

 

I'm an Island gal, graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in Victoria in 2009 and have been working as a RMT for twelve years.  Most recently, I worked in a multi-disciplinary clinic in Kamloops for three years and joined Melanie at Mrus Massage Therapy in June 2020.

 

My approach to massage is a compassionate and informed one.  I will try to determine the root cause of your symptoms with specific questions and testing.  I also believe in creating a safe space where your nervous system can relax.  I have taken a trauma-informed workshop and will continue to learn about this topic.

 

Some of my hands-on modalities include myofascial release, general swedish massage, trigger point release, joint mobilizations, and muscle energy technique.  I will give you homecare suggestions if they're appropriate to your wellness, and will refer you to specialists or other healthcare providers if necessary.

 

I am comfortable treating most conditions.  This includes low back pain (stemming from various conditions such as muscle strains, stenosis, DDD, herniation, ankylosing spondylitis, sacro-iliac misalignment, etc.), whiplash and other motor vehicle accident symptoms, headaches, pre/post pregnancy, rib subluxations, tendinitis/tendinosis, scoliosis, frozen shoulder, nerve impingements, ligament sprains, muscle strains, and postural issues.   

 

I direct bill for ICBC, Pacific Blue Cross, Canada Life, SunLife, Manulife, Greenshield and most other extended health providers.

 

A few other things about me: I'm almost finished my degree in Health Science; I'm an avid hiker and have hiked the Appalachian Trail and Sunshine Coast Trail (with upcoming plans to hike the Pacific Crest Trail); I also garden, play instruments, and hang out with my massive family
