Biography

Hello everyone! 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 four years. It is so nice to be working in my hometown, giving back to my hometown and helping people in any small way I can.

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 participated in outreach initiatives at the following locations: 

  • Royal Victorian Hospital in Barrie - Oncology Floor

  • 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
