Janet Penny, RMT Ottawa massage therapy
Massage therapy is a mix of both science and art, requiring a strong base in anatomy and physiology accompanied by creativity and intuition.
I am fascinated by the resiliency of the human body and how it can withstand all that we put it through. Everyday my work permits me the opportunity to help people feel better by incorporating massage therapy to handle stress, prevent injuries as well as manage the effects of cancer treatments.
I look forward to working with you and leave you with my favourite quote from Mark Twain’s The Innocent’s Abroad.
“We bestow thoughtful care upon inanimate objects, but none upon ourselves. What a robust people, what a nation of thinkers we might be, if we would only lay ourselves on the shelf occasionally and renew our edges!”
