Miranda Wells completed her formal training as a registered massage therapist (RMT) with the Massage Therapy Association of Saskatchewan (MTAS) in 2008 and she promptly joined the Inside Out Therapies clinic. During her studies, she realized that her interest in the how the body works and heals goes far beyond just the muscles; it extends into the fascia and the mind. This has made her pursue further training in with the John Barns style of myofascial release (MFR), somatic experiencing (SE) (intermediate year of study) as well as the energetic style of Reiki.
In 2011, Miranda joined Zoe Stiglitz as a business partner and Inside Out Therapies moved to a new location. The larger clinic space allowed clients to have a variety of therapeutic options for their specific needs. Inside Out Therapies has a rounded approach to wellness with a variety of therapies all under one roof.
Miranda’s treatment style is working primarily with fascia, the connective tissue of the body. Myofasical release (MFR) is done without lotion or oils so the body can be used as its own leverage system, helping to unravel the tension at the source. Fascial work often has a lot slower pace than regular Swedish massage therapy. This is because it takes time for the bodies systems to accept the pressure, integrate the work being done, and then lengthen to create change, rather than to force or strip the muscle. However, there are times when those methods are used as well.
The SE component of a massage treatment with Miranda involves taking time to ‘tune in’ and listen to the present and ancient wisdom the body has to offer. This tracking of the system encourages the client to be present in the experience, to notice how their body is responding and what internal or external force may be triggering problems. Working with this awareness helps to accelerate the healing process.
Miranda is also trained in craniosacral therapy, completing Craniosacral Therapy 1 and Craniosacral Therapy 2.
A treatment with Miranda may include MRF, structural integration, craniosacral, SE, and/or regular massage. All techniques implemented in a treatment aim to aid the body in its innate ability to heal itself whether it be from physical or emotional trauma.
This includes: * scars * surgery * inflammation * motor vehicle accidents * physical or mental abuse * traumatic birth for both mother and/or child
