Lynette MacKinnon

Registered Massage Therapist

Read Bio

Lynette graduated from Mt Alllison University in 1998 with her Bachelor of Science in Biology & Psychology. Upon graduation, she moved to Halifax where she eventually enrolled at ICT Northumberland College, graduating with honours in 2003. After attaining her Massage Therapy Diploma, Lynette passed her Ontario Certification exams and moved to Kingston, where she worked for 10 years, originally in a chiropractic clinic and a spa, and eventually having her own home based clinic for her last 5 years there.

For over 5 years, Lynette was also an Instructor and Clinic Supervisor in the Massage Therapy program at Trillium College in Kingston. She loves to teach and hopes to eventually do so again.

While living in Kingston, Lynette realized there was a lack of treatment options for those living with lymphedema and certain other issues and so she completed additional training in the Dr Vodder Method of Manual Lymph Drainage and Combined Decongestive Therapy in 2012. She finds this treatment method to be very beneficial for a wide range of clients.

In 2013, while pregnant with her second child, Lynette and her husband decided to move back to the East Coast, landing in Charlottetown, PEI for a few years and recently moving to Halifax. Lynette is quite happy to be back in Nova Scotia, having previously lived in Halifax and hailing from Cape Breton originally. She looks forward to meeting the community and addressing their health care needs. Comfortable with both therapeutic and relaxation approaches to treatment, she brings a wealth of experience and knowledge with her.

Sandra has been practicing in Halifax since 1994 after visiting from BC and falling for the East Coast. Having worked with MLD therapists in BC, she knew its value and yet there was nobody practicing MLD in Nova Scotia. Travelling to the Dr Vodder Schule in Walchsee, Austria, she obtained her CDT certification in 1996, and continues to use MLD extensively in her practice.

In 2009 wanting to inspire others to take up the practice of MLD and improve access to Complete Decongestive Therapy for patients in the Maritimes, she became a Basic Instructor with the Dr Vodder School International and has taught across the country.

In her spare time she enjoys travel, spending time with family and friends, and is an avid Underwater Hockey player and enthusiast. Blending work and pleasure, she has attended numerous World Championships as the team therapist.

Sandra is Registered with the College of Massage Therapists of BC, the Massage Therapists Association of NS and continues to improve her knowledge attending conferences internationally.
