Biography

Marguerite Mérey is a Registered Massage Therapist at Cleveland Clinic Canada. Ms. Mérey practices with a patient-centered and holistic focus, spending time listening and helping her patients achieve greater health through both treatment time and self-care/remedial exercises.  

Ms. Mérey obtained her Bachelor of Physical Health and Education (BPHE) from the University of Toronto before travelling to Ireland to complete a Diploma in Massage and Holistic studies at Senior College Dun Laoghaire. During this time she completed training in sports massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, and reiki which led to a role as a Massage Therapist in Ireland. Following this experience, she returned to Toronto to complete her Diploma in Massage Therapy from Kikkawa College in Toronto.    

Practicing full-time since 2013, Ms. Mérey enjoys incorporating her skill set into each treatment, as needed. Most recently, she completed a 120 hour course in Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) through Dr. Vodder School International and is a certified Combined Decongestive Therapist (CDT). Through both MLD and CDT techniques she can treat people who present with lymphedema. In addition, MLD is helpful for a variety of conditions - sinusitis, arthritis, repetitive strain injury, injury healing and edema (swelling) reduction and stress reduction. Alongside these conditions she also has experience in treating clients with neurological conditions (post-stroke, multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barré syndrome) and post-orthopaedic surgery clients.   

In her spare time she enjoys incorporating movement and exercise through cycling, swimming, running and weight training. Her creative interests include photography and embroidery.
