Massage Style

Dr. Kuehnel was a chiropractor first, and became a massage therapist because she valued the contribution of massage therapy to a comprehensive treatment plan for musculoskeletal complaints. Her style is generally firm with more specific contacts, brisk without being rapid, and incorporates joint mobilization, distraction and assisted stretching. She incorporates traditional Swedish techniques along with non-Swedish techniques such as myofascial release techniques, cross-fibre frictions and trigger point therapy. She believes that home exercise and stretching, postural education, and activity modification (advice on how to change what you're doing to help control and reduce symptoms) is paramount to self-management of any musculoskeletal complaint.

Education

Dr. Kuehnel completed an honours undergraduate degree in Life Sciences at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. During that time, she worked with the physical and occupational therapy department at Kingston General Hospital, and with the anatomy department in the Queen’s School of Medicine.

In 2007, Dr. Kuehnel graduated from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, which remains one of the most research-focused chiropractic institutions in the world. She completed her certification in Contemporary Medical Acupuncture through McMaster University in 2007 and her training in massage therapy with the Ontario College of Health and Technology in 2011-2012. She has continued her education, participating in many continuing education courses while maintaining an active practice.

Dr. Kuehnel is published in the Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association (March, 2008).
