Dorota Lombardi has been a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) since 2009. She graduated from Everest College in 2008, earning her Massage Therapy Diploma. She is a member in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario.
Dorota’s main passion in life is to help people with the help of the Holy Spirit. As a Registered Massage Therapist, she works really hard to help people be rejoined with their good health as much as possible through the art of massage therapy practice.
Dorota is trained and qualified to use General Swedish Massage Techniques and Hot Stone Massage Techniques into any of her treatment plans as either a relaxation or a rehabilitative focus. Essential oils may be used based on appropriateness and safety.
Dorota is always focused and motivated on improving her skills and takes courses often to help treat her clients' conditions safely and more effectively. Joining the Kleinburg Integrative Health Clinic has been a great stepping stone to more growth and learning from the very knowledgeable and different healthcare practitioners on the team.
Dorota is fluent in English, Polish, and is currently learning Italian for her Vaughan clients! She is thrilled to be here with everyone at Kleinburg! :)
What to Expect on Your First Visit
Your massage therapist will require you to fill out a health history form. Afterwards the therapist will begin by asking you general questions to establish what areas you would like worked on, if there are any conditions needing to be addressed and to determine if massage is appropriate for you. Your massage therapist may perform certain assessments and testing to evaluate your condition, and to see if you have any presenting complaints.
