Ellen Luchkow, BFA, RMT
Ellen is passionate about the healthy, moving body. As a professional dancer, she completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Simon Fraser University before transferring her understanding of the body, and love of movement, to her career as a massage therapist.
Ellen studied and graduated with honours from the 3000 hour program at the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy (Utopia Academy). Based on an individual’s needs, Ellen employs a variety of techniques throughout the massage such as myofascial and trigger point release, Swedish massage, Muscle Energy Technique, and joint mobilizations. Ellen's approach aims to work specifically, and at the correct tissue depth, in order to effect true structural change.
She enjoys educating her clients about their bodies, helping them improve the underlying causes of postural imbalance and returning the body to its normal, balanced state. She is able to adjust the massage pressure depending on your needs, and will provide a homecare plan to assist you after the treatment.
Ellen lives in Secret Cove with her husband and two young children. She is thrilled to be working with the community of the Sunshine Coast, and looks forward to helping you meet your therapeutic goals.
