Registered Massage Therapist
Since Miranda was five years old, she has had two major passions in life, massage therapy and photography. When she moved to Saskatoon in 2001, her interest in the photographic arts took the lead and she began her career, working with some of the city's great photographic labs and photographers. Tammy Zdunich of Boehmer Photography is one such photographer (featured throughout the Inside Out Therapies website). Massage therapy took its hold on her and she decided to sell her cameras and devote herself completely to it. Although Miranda does once again own a camera, her heart now belongs to the healing arts of massage therapy.
Miranda's formal training as a registered massage therapist (RMT) with the Massage Therapy Association of Saskatchewan (MTAS) was completed 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 allows 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. Each therapist is as individual as those who come into the clinic. Finding the right therapist for you is important to us. If the therapist you see is not the right fit, please mention it and we will connect you to one that will be, whether they are in our clinic or not. Your health and well being is what matters most to us.
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 your massage treatment will involve taking time to ‘tune in’ and listen to the present and ancient wisdom your body has to offer. This tracking of your system encourages you to be present in the experience to notice how your body is responding and what internal or external force is triggering problems. Working with this awareness helps to accelerate the healing process.
Your treatment may include MRF, structural integration, craniosacral, SE, and/or regular massage. All techniques implemented in your treatment aim to aid your body in its innate ability to heal itself whether it be from physical or emotional trauma.
