Kyla was born and raised on Vancouver Island. She decided at a young age that she wanted to be a massage therapist. She always knew that she would be involved in health care, helping people. Being visually impaired since birth, working with her hands seemed natural to her. Kyla graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy Victoria in late 2009. Since then she has practiced in a variety of settings on the Island and in Vancouver. This has allowed her to work with many people from all walks of life.

Kyla believes that the body has the ability to heal itself. She strives as a massage therapist to work with her clients’ bodies, employing a variety of techniques, including craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, as well as massage and osteopathic techniques  to help promote healing and reduce stress. In order to expand her knowledge of the human body and add to her practice, Kyla is studying manual osteopathy at the Canadian School of Osteopathy Manual practice Vancouver.Her areas of focus include pregnancy, women’s health, chronic pain, athletes, injury prevention, and those just starting out on their fitness journey. Kyla’s passion for women’s health has lead her to take many continuing education courses on pregnancy and postpartum care including breast treatment and post cesarean section treatment. Having been through it twice herself she has a great respect for the changes that a woman’s body goes through during pregnancy and childbirth and the difficulties that can arise. She also enjoys supporting people postpartum.

As she is visually impaired, Kyla does have her guide dog, Lloyd, with her at all times in the treatment room. Most of her clients find his presence very soothing. This may not be ideal however, for those with allergies, or an aversion to dogs.
