Hello and thank you for visiting my 'About" section
where I will quickly introduce myself to you.
My name is Wolfgang and I am a fully certified, licensed and insured     
RMT (registered massage-therapist) in  Edmonton since 2010. 
I specialize in therapeutic massages using many different techniques,   
including deep tissue work, myofascial release, visceral and neural
manipulation and cranio-sacral therapy to name just a few, to achieve      
the best results for my clients.
But don't get me wrong- I also like to give relaxation massages to help relieving stress or spoil my clients with Thai Hot Stem Massages (TM).
I am a NHPC-member (Natural Health Practitioners of Canada)  and also member of the  IAHE (International Alliance of Healthcare Educators). Due to my NHPC-registration I am a 'Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) and can issue insurance-receipts so that my clients can get re-reimbursed from their benefit-plans.
​Before becoming a RMT, I was an award-winning landscape designer in Alberta. But, as much as I liked the creativity and technical challenges, it was also very stressful, and after a few years my body became very angry with me.
I realized  I'd have to change something in my life.....and here I am.
...and I am loving it ever since I started. I had the chance to gain lots of  experience and insight at a Spa in Edmonton where i worked for roughly 5 years providing close to 5000 relaxation and therapeutic massages.
During this time I had a chance to work with many wonderful clients and learned about what clients' expectations are and how modern life and stress can take a toll on a body.
Now, being on my own I want to take what I learned - and still learn - and put it to good use.
I've taken numerous courses since graduating from massage college (see below) and keep learning and take various continuing education courses every year.
Some of the continued education courses (CE's) I have successfully taken:

Therapeutic bodywork (including deep tissue, myofascial release, neural and visceral manipulation, cranio-sacral therapy, TMJ-work,..) provides both - challenge and gratification when I am able to help my clients alleviate pain, set them straight or simply get rid of a headache.
If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me and I will try to do the best I can to answer them.
Hope to see you soon!
