Keiko Marumo: RMT, RAPID ART Specialist
I graduated with distinction from the 2200-hr Massage Therapy Program at MacEwan University in 2015, and I have been massaging at Therapeutic Body Concepts ever since! Over the years, I have been refining my skills in Swedish/relaxation massage and therapeutic massage, which are great for reducing tension and promoting circulation. I am certified in hot stone massage, dynamic cupping, and prenatal and post-natal massage. I am also specialized in RAPID adhesion release technique (RAPID ART), a technique used to produce neuro-fascial release via stimulation of the nervous system.
Why did I become a massage therapist? I have always had a genuine interest about the human body and I pursued a Bachelor of Science and Education in order to further my appreciation of it. After having been a teacher for a few years, I discovered the Massage Therapy Program at MacEwan University, made a career change, and along the way developed a passion for being a massage therapist! Massage therapy has allowed me to develop a better understanding of the body and become more aware of the importance of health and wellness in my life. I believe that health and wellness begins with yourself but involves support from those who can help you attain your goals, whether it be getting rid of pain, regaining mobility, or just attaining relief from stress.
My goal as an RMT is to continue as a RAPID ART Specialist. By affecting the nervous system and treating dysfunctional nerve endings, I am able to decrease tissue tone, increase tissue fluid, and reduce pain. Using RAPID ART, I’ve been successful with treating musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, headaches/migraines, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee pain, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, TMJ-D, and much more. RAPID ART is also effective in treating scar tissue, re-establishing stability in core dysfunction, releasing diaphragmatic adhesion, and addressing pelvic floor issues. It is my hope to continue treating with RAPID ART to help my clients return to their regular activities.
I am thrilled to be working at Therapeutic Body Concepts! In addition to working alongside a wonderful team of therapists, I love the welcoming and inclusive atmosphere of our clinic. I look forward to helping you in achieving your goals in the pursuit of improving your health and well-being.
