Andrew McCully, RMT
Andrew McCully is a healer and artist with a background in working on community projects. He has been an arts events coordinator, has worked on large-scale exhibitions, and studied Psychology at the University of Regina. Massage therapy grows out of his experience as a sculptor and painter: Andrew's hands are his principal means of communication. His training and work experience have given him an expansive approach to life challenges and inter-communicative problem solving. He brings flexibility of mind to his work and is able to adapt his treatment on a person-by-person basis. This creative approach allows him to work well in the dynamic interpersonal atmosphere of an umbrella clinic like Etznab Natural Healing Center.
One of the keys to understanding his practice is in how he turned a physical challenge into a therapeutic advantage. While training at the Emily Carr Insitute of Art in the early 90's, Andrew began to experience loss of sight. What seemed at first like a debilitating condition was transformed into a significant life opportunity. The following is from an interview in which Andrew describes this process of transformation and how it helped him develop his skill as a massage therapist.
