Tara Miller RMT
Tara is a registered massage therapist passionate about helping others enjoy optimal quality of life and gain greater ease and mobility in daily activities—both at work and play. As an avid mountain biker, snowboarder, yoga enthusiast and all around lover of outdoor sports and activities, her fascination with the complex and dynamic healing ability of the body began with the desire to achieve health and wellness in her own life.
Tara graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy (Victoria campus) and has been practising in Cumberland since 2009. Based on individual needs, her holistic approach employs a variety of techniques that look beyond the site of injury and pain to uncover and improve the underlying causes of imbalance.
Tara uses myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, and other noninvasive osteopathic techniques to combat chronic issues such as headache, back and neck pain, stress, whiplash, and women’s health concerns. Standard therapeutic massage appointments combine this bodywork approach with traditional massage techniques such as Swedish, deep tissue, and joint mobilization. While full body relaxation massage is not usually part of Tara’s treatment plan, she feels that unveiling and addressing issues in the body to be the most effective form of stress relief. After all, these chronic areas of tension are often where we hold stress in our bodies.
As a self-care advocate and life-long learner, Tara is continuously upgrading her skills and knowledge. Currently, she is enrolled in a two-year continuing education program that expands on myofascial and osteopathic techniques, diving deep into the anatomy, function, and structure of the body to consider all tissue layers and the relationships between them.
When she’s not studying or working, Tara can be found in the mountains and forests that surround her home. More often than not, she’s in the good company of her dog.
