Pranavi Thampi

Pranavi is a zealous Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine/Registered Acupuncturist and a Sports Registered Massage Therapist.

Sports RMT
Pranavi has built quite a reputation for her use of strength during deep tissue treatments that her patients rave about. Her style is not a typically fluffy, spa like approach but rather a more biomechanical, investigative, result orientated treatment. That being said, she also naturally attracts the elderly and adapts pressure depth according to the patient’s needs. It is her dream to open a treatment center solely to cater to the elderly population. Since graduating, she has been working at a Sports Medicine Clinic and is experienced at treating Triathletes, Geriatrics, Children, Pre and Post Partum, pre and post surgeries, Whiplash and more. Soon after graduating, she also started to supervise at the school clinic, outreach events, proctored exams and was also a Teachers Assistant for Biomechanics at Mount Royal University. Initially, she came to Canada to pursue Medical Esthetics and was told by many to consider Massage Therapy. She was told she has “the touch” and took the advice given to her seriously. During her studies at MRU she was awarded Massage Therapy Program Champion.

Chinese Medicine/ Acupuncture
Pranavi decided to study further and took up Chinese Medicine. She also was the only student of her batch to go to China (pre COVID). She grew as a therapist and learnt a lot by visiting and interning at Chinese Medicine Hospitals and Universities. Having a keen interest in Auricular Acupuncture and Moxibustion some common conditions she can address are:
• Chronic Pain
• Sleep disorders
• Digestive concerns
• Mental Health issues like: Depression, Anxiety, Eating Disorders, Addictions, PTSD etc.

What would an ideal treatment be like?
For the best outcome it is recommended to book a Massage and Acupuncture combination with her. This seems to have had lasting effects for patients post treatment.
