Dawn Nichol is a registered massage therapist who specifically defines herself as a muscular therapist. A graduate of the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy, she has studied with leading health professionals, including Ms. M. Kapsos, a physiotherapist and Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy (PDMT) practitioner.
Dawn utilizes many techniques, including PDMT, a deep cross-fiber massage that follows the lymphatic pathways of the body in order to bring circulation into the deeper tissues. The intention of this work is to correct damage within the muscle tissue that commonly occurs as a result of inflammation, strain, scar tissue, injury and disease.
She has been in practice for 35 years, 25 years of which have in large part comprised working with ballet and contemporary dancers, a group of people who dedicate their entire careers to perfecting and maintaining the athleticism inherent in their art form. Dawn’s commitment to the long-term health of dancers led her to write the book “On Your Feet: A Dancer's Handbook For Self-Care”.
