Born on the island of Trinidad, Purdey came to Canada when she was 10 years of age. She originally ventured in the field of dentistry, which led her to study at Algonquin College to become a Registered Dental Hygienist. About 10 years later her interests evolved into relieving stress and promoting relaxation for a busy and hectic world. Her passion steered her to return to study at Humber College where she completed a 3 year advanced diploma program in Massage Therapy and is current registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario.
Purdey had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings such as, People with Aids Foundation in Toronto, Black Creek community centre (chronic illnesses), PEAC school for elite athletes, an early childhood centre in Brampton (infant massage), Baycrest Hospital (palliative care), and Acquired Brain Injury in Mississauga. She also has experience at the Humber Spa where she treated various musculoskeletal conditions such as tendinitis, scoliosis, temporomandibular joint disorder and osteoarthritis. In addition she has treated problems such as anxiety, insomnia, and is also capable of performing breast massage/prenatal care.
She also completed comprehensive assessments, developed client centered treatment plans attaining proper consent and confidentiality. The treatment plans included home care and remedial exercises. Some of her techniques include Swedish massage, myofascial release, percussion, PNF stretching, joint mobilizations/traction, and hydrotherapy. She also has experience using paraffin wax baths, ultrasound and electrical modalities to promote healing.
Overall Purdey is an intuitive and pleasant therapist hoping to achieve the best results for her clients.
