Morgan Stordy, RMT

As an RMT in good standing, Morgan strives to meet and surpass her patients' goals. Long term, she wants to continue to learn advanced based treatment skills that are rehabilitative according to each individual patients' needs.

Morgan is a deep myofascial therapist (Biodynamic Myofascial Mobilization). She is kind and caring, and a very welcome addition to this serious team of professionals.
Myofascial release is a form of massage therapy described as a deeper, effective treatment. This is recommended for symptoms such as chronic pain or stiffness to areas with reduced movement due to injury or trauma, or due to repetitive motion.

It is also a treatment applied to athletic training, motor vehicle accidents causing injury, sports injury or even to overall general maintenance; to keep us active in our daily lives. This form of deep myofascial treatment provides a loosening to superficial and deeper layers of tissue surrounding almost every muscle, tendon, organ, nervous system and circulatory vessels and then helps to improve movement to areas of tension.

Testimonial:

"Hello Gisele,
I wanted to pass on to you my experience yesterday with Morgan. It was an experience that knocked me out of the park! That young woman, in my opinion, has a real gift, and a remarkable touch. I thought you should be aware; if you aren't already.
Warmest wishes,
A huge fan of LMTAC!"

Testimonial:

"Hello LMTAC owner,

I have suffered from muscle stiffness and chronic pain for most of my very active adult life. I have tried other therapies and other therapists and no one comes close to the first-rate RMT treatment I received the other day. Deanna is absolutely amazing and a rare find from my experience. I am more than thankful now that I feel even better days after the treatment…cannot stop saying how good I feel! Deanna made it so simple, took the time to listen to my aches and asked me what I wanted to focus on. After that…one session with her and immediate results! If you are looking for a therapist who genuinely cares about helping you and sees you as more than "just a client", then look no further, you've found her.

Best Regards ~ A very happy local Ladner resident!"
