Edith Lorincz, RMT
Edith is a graduate of the Registered Massage Therapy Program at Langara College. She was drawn to massage therapy by her interest in human anatomy and health. Edith utilizes her knowledge of therapeutic massage, manual therapy and movement based interventions to help restore the body to its optimal functioning. During school she had the chance to work with a variety of conditions and populations through her placement at several outreaches including ICORD, The Hive climbing gym, Harbour Dance, St. John’s Hospice and Langara’s very own pre/post natal in-reach. Edith’s treatment techniques include but are not limited to, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, muscle energy techniques (MET), neuromuscular techniques, and joint mobilizations. She was awarded with a certificate in Subtle Manual Therapies after completing courses in lymphatic drainage, visceral mobilizations, cranio-sacral therapy and MET. While completing her case study Edith developed an interest in working with those suffering from temporomandibular dysfunction. Always eager to learn more about her patient’s injuries she emphasizes the importance of a thorough assessment. Edith believes in working together with her patients to improve the quality of their lives by listening to their needs and offering individually tailored treatments and home-care. Away from the workplace Edith enjoys weight training, running and dancing. Having danced for 14 years she is familiar with many injuries dancers are faced with. In addition she speaks Hungarian and Romanian fluently and is able to communicate with patients of similar backgrounds.
