Biography

Integrated Performance Massage Therapy, Acupuncture and Fascial Stretch Therapy

Marieta began her manual therapy career upon graduating from Sutherland-Chan in 2011. Over the past five years, she has spent countless hours studying, taking formal advanced courses and learning live from mentors in her pursuit for professional excellence. She now practices a unique treatment method of Integrated Performance Therapy, Acupuncutre and Fascial Stretch Therapy.

She has completed post-graduate certifications in advanced techniques including: Active Release Techniques® (ART), Fascial Stretch Therapy™, Contemporary Medical Acupuncture, Neurofunctional Sports Performance, Advanced Soft Tissue Micro-conditioning Techniques, Advanced Neurofunctional Assessment of Sports Injuries and other Complex Musculoskeletal Disorders, and Athletic and Clinical Taping.

Marieta takes an integrative and functional approach to assessing and treating her patients. Following a functional assessment, she creates an individualized treatment plan, targeting the source of the pain, poorly integrated movement patterns, mobility restrictions and adaptations.

Marieta has been a competitive Rock Climber for over 20 years. As a member of Team Canada, she has National and International Championship titles under her belt and is currently the Canadian Climbing Team Sports Therapist. These personal endeavors give Marieta a practical understanding of her clients’ physical requirements for optimal muscle and joint performance, recovery and injury prevention.

Marieta treats patients with a variety of dysfunctions, but her passion lies in treating sports injuries. She treats both professional athletes from the NHL and MLB, to recreational tennis and squash players, marathon and ironman athletes, rowers and rock climbers. She was part of the medical team for the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto working with Gymnastics and Volleyball.
