As a holistic practitioner Nadine is committed to the philosophy that: “Our bodies are made to heal themselves but often require a dynamic therapist to restore wellness and remind the body of its innate healing capabilities”.
For the past twelve years Nadine Samila has honed her extensive knowledge of massage therapy to become a source of healing and vitality for her diverse clientele. Repeat patients and consistent referrals reflect Nadine’s treatment success. She has a special interest in shoulder injuries and in pelvic dysfunction. Nadine is a strong supporter of a team approach to patient care in achieving and maintaining optimum health. She believes in the importance of educating her clients about their bodies and empowering them to make positive choices. Nadine’s work is always compassionate, sensitive and effective.
Since graduating in 1996 from Calgary’s Foothills College of Massage Therapy, Nadine has continued to expand her knowledge of bodywork. Her latest passion is using the skill obtained in training during a Thomas Myers five hundred hour program on KMI (Kinesis Myofascial Intergration) Structural IntegrationCM. KMI is bodywork based on the pioneering work of Dr. Ida Rolf, modified to include the myofascial continuities of the Anatomy Trains, researched and developed by Thomas Myers.
Studying with Thomas Myers, John F. Barnes and many others has proved invaluable in enhancing Nadine’s range of therapy specialization for her international practice. Currently, Nadine’s focus lies in the KMI Structural IntegrationCM series of twelve progressive appointments and in the practice of Myofascial Release Therapy.
Nadine enjoys taking her skill and her positive, professional attitude around the globe. If she is not engaged working in her busy Calgary based clinic, The Centre for Soft Tissue Pain Ltd., she can be found studying in the United States or providing Structural IntegrationCM sessions at Mindful Integration retreats in Costa Rica or Greece.
As well as being a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT), Nadine is a Board Certified Structural IntegratorCM and a recognized member of IASI (International Association of Structural Integrators).
