Amy Tanaka

Massage Therapist

At as young as 5 years old, Amy used to stand on the back of her parents’ chairs and massage their shoulders. They joked that maybe she would become a massage therapist one day and many years later it seems that their prediction had been true. After acquiring an interest towards to human kinetics in high school, Amy pursued her degree in Physical and Health Education at Queen’s University, graduating with honours in 2018. She went on to receive her diploma from Sutherland-Chan Massage Therapy School and Teaching Clinic and became a fully licensed massage therapist in 2019.

Amy has a diligent focus on relaxation and recurring pain treatment, treating conditions such as migraines/headaches, tendonitis, chronic stress, and many others. With over 200 hours of clinic experience, Amy has treated a variety of patients in multiples settings including those of specialty clinics such as Multiple Sclerosis, high risk pregnancy, a women’s shelter, and transplant patients at Toronto General Hospital.

Aside from a medical focus, Amy also puts a lot of the value of massage in human to human connection and utilizes a collaborative approach to her practice in order to develop an effective treatment with her patient that they both agree on. She is most concerned with treating what her patients want and providing them with the therapy and tools they need to lead a healthy and pain free lifestyle. Amy cares deeply about her patients’ wellbeing and understands the importance of therapeutic touch – especially these days.

Amy enjoys living an active lifestyle with lots of hiking, strength and HIIT training, and yoga. She spends most of her free time with her friends and family since she was born and raised in Toronto. Amy loves crafting and always has a DIY project on the go, which keeps her creative mind flowing and hands busy. Amy is so proud to be a part of the Modo Yoga family, and is looking forward to meeting her new patients!
