Penelope Murton RMT, LST

Registered Massage Therapist

I was born on the south coast of England, ten minutes’ walk from the English Channel. I came to Canada with my parents and brother when I was 8. I grew up in Quebec, where I later attended McGill University. I taught grades 5 and 6 for several years before marrying and raising my family of two sons and two daughters.

My husband’s job led us to the Ottawa area, and we have lived in Chesterville for the last twenty years on a century farm just outside the village, where I have raised and shown National-winning collies and goats.

Our sons are both working in the automotive industry like their father. Our older daughter will be graduating from Carleton University with a Bachelor of Science degree and is considering continuing on to attain her Masters. Our younger daughter will be starting the Bachelor of Science program at the University of Ottawa in the Fall of this year.
Personal experience of the success that can be achieved in the treatment of injuries combining massage therapy with other forms of hands-on treatment has led me to this new vocation to which I am passionately committed.

I returned to school to train as a Registered Massage Therapist, graduating in May 2012 from the massage therapy program at Elegance College in Cornwall.  I am licensed to offer both relaxation and therapeutic massage, using both Swedish and non-Swedish techniques. I plan to take advantage of continuing education courses offered by our governing college, the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, to further enhance my skills as a therapist.

I believe I have something of value to offer this region in the way of alternative health care and very much look forward to serving this community in my capacity as a registered massage therapist.
