Mike McGinnes, RMT
Michael has been registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario since 2007. He is a graduate of the 2200 hour, Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) Diploma program at The D'Arcy Lane Institute of Massage Therapy, one of the first massage therapy schools established in Ontario. His interest in massage was sparked at the young age of 14, after he sustained whiplash from a snowboarding accident. He was sent to a registered massage therapist who was able to treat his injury and have him back mobile and healthy again after a short series of treatments. Ever since, he has had a passion for massage and all of its therapeutic applications and benefits.
Michael has worked in various clinical settings, from a chronic pain rehabilitation center in Toronto to a spa setting in London ON. Although the majority of his work has revolved around deep-tissue massage, Michael has worked with a diverse range of clients including professional athletes, cancer patients, heart attack and stroke survivors, bedridden clients and individuals in palliative care. Michael has extensive experience with sports injuries, workplace and motor vehicle injuries, prenatal and postpartum massage.
In addition to working in Wellington West, Michael lives just down the street in Hintonburg. When not at work, Michael enjoys participating in community events and exploring local shops and eateries. He keeps active by biking, camping, canoeing, fishing, playing squash, snowboarding, cooking and travelling.
Michael has been proudly building his practice here at Restore since 2012, and was voted Ottawa’s top massage therapist of 2013 through Top Choice Awards.
Mike is available by appointment Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8 am to 8 pm, and Thursdays from 8 am to 1:30 pm. Visit the Book Online page for more details.
