Hi, I'm Darlene Rahn and I'm an RMT. I was born and raised in Oshawa but moved to Guelph in 1982 in order to attend the University of Guelph. After graduating in 1985 with a science degree, I never left Guelph. Guelph is so vibrant, friendly and green. It certainly has changed since 1982! Our University is the greenest I have ever seen - so many parks, trails and trees!
Massage Therapy has become my passion since I decided to change my career path in 2005. It wasn't a difficult choice
I have pursued running since 1998 and because of this passion, I was introduced to the art and science of Massage Therapy. With regular massage treatments, I was able to recover quickly from long runs, deal with injuries and soreness quickly so that I could get on with my training . These days, after completing 3 marathons and numerous half marathons and 5/10km races, I am concentrating on trail running and regularly compete in 25km, 50km and 50 mile races around Ontario.
When I decided to make a career change, I looked towards Massage Therapy as a career that would enable me to put myself out on the front line as the person responsible for my patients and my own business. With the love and support of my husband, Dave, and my two children, Amanda (30 years old) and Justin (25 years old), I was able to graduate from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in 2006. In 2011 I returned to school to become certified in Manual Lymph Drainage which benefits cancer survivors and people born with insufficient lymphatic systems. It is a very rewarding specialty!
Aside from Massage Therapy, my other passions include spoiling my grandson Jackson and cheering for Canada's ball team, the Toronto Blue Jays!
Myliberal schedule shows that I am willing to be accessible to see clients when they need treatment, which according to many of my patients, is so difficult to find in Guelph. I welcome the opportunity to help you along whatever journey you are on. Whatever injuries and issues are holding you back, please come in and let me work with you to be the best that you can be.
