Chanté joined Bellesmere Massage Therapy Clinic in the summer of 2017. Prior to working at Bellesmere, she was employed in different multidisciplinary clinics where she helped rehabilitate patients back to pre-injury state. A graduate of Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic in 2015, here is where she had a new-found interest in the human body and musculoskeletal presentations after receiving an extensive education and practical experience with patients of varying abilities and conditions / pathologies. Soon after graduating, she had her daughter which then peaked her interest more in pregnancy and infant massage. Chanté has specialties working with pre- and post-natal pregnancy patients; including those deemed high risk, individuals with CNS conditions like stroke, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis to name a few, and has worked in the lung unit of the Toronto General Hospital aiding patients with lobectomies to ones with COPD, asthma and emphysema.
In addition to her being an RMT, Chanté began her post-secondary education in Kinesiology at the University of Windsor where she graduated with Honours and received a Bachelors degree of Human Kinetics (BHK) in 2013. From her schooling, she has a comprehensive knowledge of human kinetics, anatomy and physiology, allowing her the ability to utilize this information to cater to the needs of the patients she treats. She uses specialized soft tissue and joint techniques to address a range of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular issues including but not limited to: stress, tension, repetitive strain, low back pain, limited range of motion, whiplash, TMJ, and headaches.
As an athletic individual growing up, Chanté was always interested in dance, sports and anything involved with human movement. In her spare time, you can find her reading, chasing around her highly active daughter and trying to get her into being an active, energetic and avid sports minded person.
