Rae Smith has been working as a massage therapist in for almost 30 years, and practising mindfulness for about 25 of those years. Her goal is to make a contribution toward reducing pain, increasing function and improving the quality of life for her clients. She does this with massage, craniosacral therapy, fascial integration and therapeutic exercise. She is committed to continuing education and creativity in her approach to the healing art and science of massage therapy.
For more than eight years Rae worked with both children and adults in a very progressive orthodontic practice. Her time with that team helped her to develop a clinical interest in head, neck and facial pain. She also has a clinical interest in trauma and PTSD.
Being an adoptive mother and an advocate for the adoption community, she has developed an understanding of and sensitivity to the unique challenges facing families of adoption and foster care.
Her devotion to community wellness leads her to volunteering her time to ongoing projects within Simcoe County’s arts community and to working with the Barrie and Area Victims’ Crisis Assistance and Referral Service (BaVCARS).
