Michaela Doolittle, BSc HK, RMT
Michaela’s health care journey began in Ottawa where she graduated with honors from the University of Ottawa with a Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics. She furthered her education at Algonquin College where she enrolled in the Massage Therapy program. After taking a year off of school to delve into the world of personal training, she returned to school and graduated from Kine-Concept Institute’s Massage Therapy Program in 2007. She began her massage practice in Ottawa and found herself moving to Kingston in 2009.
Her passion for health and fitness is apparent through both her drive to help her clientele and personally in her love for weightlifting and nutrition. As a former figure (bodybuilding) competitor, and mother of three small children, Michaela finds balance in her world and hopes to do the same for you. Her resume as a personal trainer as well as an instructor at the College level, has given her a variety of health care experience that she transfers over to her massage practice today.
As a member in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, Michaela meets all requirements necessary to hold her professional status. Michaela’s foundation of her practice lays within the Swedish massage techniques in which she was trained, as well as several additional trainings (see below). She is also an Assessor for the College of Massage Therapists, ensuring the profession meets its minimum standards of practice amongst all of Ontario's RMTs.
Michaela enjoys spending her non-clinic days at her 83 acre farm outside of Kingston with her three children, husband, chickens and sheep. She is a self proclaimed "gym rat" who also likes to cook and read.
Whether it be for a specific injury- acute or chronic, sprains, strains, repetitive strain injuries, preventative or relaxation purposes, Michaela will be more than happy to help you reach your health care goals.
