Lucy Vandenbrink is owner and operator of Three Quarter Moon Therapeutics which she opened in April of 2018 after working with the wonderful team at Total Kneads Massage Therapy for over ten years.
Lucy graduated with honours from Northumberland College with a diploma in massage therapy in 2007 and was pleased to represent her class as valedictorian.
While at Northumberland, Lucy treated clients in both the Sports and Multiple Sclerosis Clinics, and volunteered as a therapist at Saint Vincent’s Senior Home, Bayers Westwood Community Centre, and the Bluenose Marathon. As a student, Lucy took advanced courses in Myo-Fascial Therapy.
In 2006, Lucy completed her training as a Birth Doula and has supported many women and their families through pregnancy, labour and delivery. Lucy combined her knowledge of massage and anatomy with a commitment to health to help women have positive birth experiences.
Before becoming a massage therapist, Lucy worked as an urban planner. After graduating with her Masters in Urban and Rural Planning from Dalhouise University in 2002, Lucy worked in a number of communities, primarily First Nations throughout the Atlantic Region. It was through this work that Lucy made the connection between individual health and community health. She has since completed a Diploma in Natural Nutrition from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and in March of 2018 completed her three year training program in Somatic Experiencing (SE) from the Trauma Institute based in Colorado.
She is currently developing her Somatic Experiencing practice as well as taking courses in aromatherapy.
In addition to General Swedish Massage, and Somatic Experiencing, Lucy offers treatments in Cupping, Pregnancy Massage and relaxation.
