Robin Devine, RMT/LMT, is a 2200 hour Massage Therapist who specializes in Lymphatic Drainage, Lymphedema Therapy, Relaxation & Therapeutic Massage, Prenatal Massage, and CranioSacral Therapy. Having completed her Doula training, she has had the opportunity to attend more than 25 births in Calgary, and has specialized with prenatal massage.
Robin traveled to Thailand in 2005 and trained in Thai Massage techniques. While there, she developed an intense desire to explore non-traditional forms of Massage Therapy, and the vital importance of overall body wellness. Thanks to this insight, she has expanded her therapeutic tools to include Lymphatic Drainage Therapy and CranioSacral Therapy through the Upledger institute. She is currently only 1 of 10 therapists in the City of Calgary who have trained to the advanced level of Lymphatic Drainage as well as a Certified Lymphedema Therapist, enjoying working with more complex cases of lymphatic instability. She has recently completed her full Complete Decongestive Therapy and Certified Lymphedema Therapy course and is now accepting Lymphedema clients.
Robin graduated from Foothills College of Massage Therapy in 2002 with 2200 hours of training. Once completed, she was hired by Foothills College to become an instructor and student supervisor, where she taught a combination of science and hands on classes for 6 years. Throughout her career, she has worked in a massage therapy clinic, chiropractic clinic, as a mobile therapist in Calgary, as well as working from home for 4 years. She has also been an assistant instructor for the Upledger Institute/Chikly Institute for the Lymphatic Drainage Therapy courses since 2008, traveling all over North America and, recently, to Australia. She has taught with MH Vicars School of Massage Therapy in Calgary for 3 years for both their full first and second year curriculums. Robin currently educates new therapists with Mount Royal University teaching in their 2200 hour diploma program both in their classrooms and in their practicum clinic.
Robin has started her studies in Chikly’s Brain work. This includes gentle hands-on techniques that release restrictions and adhesions in specific parts of the brain, spinal cord and surrounding structures. Specificity can be attuned to individual nuclei, bony landmarks and structures of the brain. She has upcoming classes in her schedule to work with Dr.Chikly to train in working with the Primo-vascular System, and learning osteopathic/lymphatic techniques to help treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Multiple Sclerosis. She also enjoys bringing Dr.Chikly’s classes to Calgary, including Lymphatic Drainage Therapy 1 and 2, as well as Brain 2 in 2017!
Robin currently brings her CranioSacral and Lymphatic Drainage Therapy to clients at her home based clinic, Devine Massage Therapy, located in MacKenzie Lake/Mountain Park.
