Megan Cummings - Student Massage Therapist
Megan has just started her second year as a massage therapy student. She is currently attending Alberta College of Massage Therapy. She joined our team in January of 2020 while she was finishing up her first year of schooling. She will be doing her placement at our clinic which means she will be providing massages at a student massage therapy rate starting January until she graduates.
We are so excited to have her on board the Active Health Chiropractic team!
Megan did spend some of her teen years in Edson before moving to Edmonton, but eventually moved back here in 2016. She decided to pursue a career as a massage therapist because of her fascination in the human body and how it can heal itself.
Also, after suffering a back injury herself, she found that only chiropractic and massage helped her, so the choice was easy for her.
Megan hopes to expand her education even more following graduation. When she is not studying she enjoys being home with her family.
