Hey!! Thanks for visiting Hands in Harmony and for giving me the opportunity to introduce myself! Im Afton, Massage Therapist, mama, wifey, lover of fitness and of course chocolate. Like many of you I'm just an ordinary girl juggling life, motherhood, marriage and my career. I'm just fortunate that my career happens to be my passion!
Where does all this passion come from? I've always had an interest in health and the intricate way our body's work. As a nutritionist I fell in love with teaching people how to use food to heal themselves. I decided to go back to school to become a Massage Therapist where I quickly noticed that many of my health issues, especially those related to my reproductive system improved with massage. This is when my passion for woman's health sparked! In my final year of school I completed my case study on prenatal & postpartum massage. However it was becoming a mama myself that truly ignited my passion for prenatal & postpartum massage. Like many expecting moms, I was uncomfortable and often in pain. After countless failed attempts to find a therapist who had the experience and equipment needed to bring relief during my pregnancy, I vowed that I would do things differently in my own clinic. I've taken extensive training in prenatal and postpartum massage and invested in the equipment required to keep mamas comfy during treatments! It's my mission to make sure that any mama who walks through my door leaves feeling better than when she came in!
By no means does my passion for woman's health end with prenatal care. From everyday aches and pains, injuries and stress, to menstrual pain. Massage can help! As a woman I know how easy it is to put selfcare on the back burner. I provide a safe, relaxing and therapeutic environment for womewomen of all ages where self care is the priority, even if only for an hour!
Hope to see you soon,
