Rachel Burford RMT
Registered Massage Therapist
Rachel is one of our newest team members at Brant Wellness and Rehab. Rachel joined us late 2017 so that we could expand our massage therapy hours, she currently works Monday’s and Thursday’s and will hopefully add more hours in the near future!
Rachel first registered as an RMT in October 2011 after completing school at Everest College. She fell into massage “by accident” after starting school for construction and focussing on becoming an electrical engineer. Around this time, she became pregnant with her first son and began to think about finding a career that suited the needs of her changing life and her new role as a mother! After choosing massage therapy as a more convenient career for her family, Rachel fell in love with the work and never imagined how much she would enjoy her new chosen profession.
She is constantly retraining and expanding on her broad skill set and has recently added cupping to her list of offered treatments.
- Traditional Swedish and deep tissue massage
- Hot stone massage
- Pregnancy massage
- Sports massage
- Pediatric massage
Rachel enjoys treating injuries and working with the patients to fully rehabilitate the area of concern, she has had a lot of success treating shoulder injuries, she loves to treat children and has some exciting plans for educating people about the benefits of pediatric and infant massage.
When Rachel isn’t at work, she enjoys hanging out with her two boys at their trailer and she enjoys running and reading!
Lanna joined the Brant Wellness and Rehab team in October 2016 and came to us with 35 years of experience as a Chiropractic Assistant, she was such an asset to our team when she started, as we had only been in business about 6 months. She had a wealth of knowledge for us and for the patients and we are very thankful for her experience!
Lanna loves everything about her job and it shows with her interactions with the patients. She loves greeting every patient and enjoys getting to know each person that comes through the clinic. She takes care of all the little details that help the practitioners and patients have a good experience and is always working hard to make things more efficient for everyone.
Outside of the office Lanna is a wife, mother and Grandmother and she enjoys spending time with family, friends and her “little fur baby” Minnie! She believes in a natural approach to health care and fully believes that, “if we look after our bodies, get proper rest and have a positive outlook on life, we can accomplish so much!” She loves being a part of the team at Brant Wellness and Rehab and we love having her!
