Katie Laronde, RMT

My name is Katie Laronde and I am a Registered Massage Therapist in Temagami Ontario. I have been working in Temagami as an RMT for three years. It is so nice to be home, giving back to my hometown and helping to keep our community healthy.

I practice Massage Therapy by first assessing how the client moves and then use clinical techniques to correct any soft tissue adhesions and restore full range of motion. As a recently certified Massage Therapist I feel like I bring a new generation of knowledge to the clinic.

I want my patients to feel comfortable in asking questions and initiating discussions about their health so I can pass on the education and resources to add lasting value to the treatments. 

I have provided massage outreach initiatives at the following locations: 

  • Royal Victorian Hospital in Barrie - Oncology Patients & Staff

  • Grove Park Retirement Centre in Barrie

  • Georgian College Health and Wellness Clinic

  • Special outreaches: athletics, prenatal, infants, fibromyalgia, breast cancer

  • Ojibway Family Lodge - canoer trippers

  • Deerhurst Resort - corporate event
