Trimesters Massage Therapy Education is committed to providing ongoing training in excellence for Massage Therapists, Doulas, Childbirth Educators, Complementary Care Practitioners, Public Health Nurses & Primary Care Providers -- in essence, to anyone working with women who are pregnant and giving birth.

As well, we strive to provide the best education possible for parents who are curious and committed to providing the most loving, nurturing care that is possible for their children.

We applaud all those who understand that touch is a crucial element in the wonderful, ongoing learning process of encouraging the growth of healthy, happy children.

Trimesters was formed in 1995 by Cindy McNeely, M.T. and Allison Hines, M.T. with an aim to increase the knowledge base of Massage Therapists, Perinatal Healthcare Providers, and the general public regarding Massage Therapy for Pregnancy, Labour & Delivery, Postpartum, and Infancy.

Cindy McNeely is a Massage Therapist registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) since 1985. She is currently completing her training in Childbirth Education.

Allison Hines is completing her last year in the Ryerson Midwifery Program. She graduated from Sutherland-Chan in 1992 and is a Registered Massage Therapist with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. Currently her practice is very limited until she completes her graduation from the Midwifery Program. Stay tuned for the GRAND announcement!!!! Allison is also the mother of three children: Casey, Nicholas, and Anna.

Both are graduates of the Sutherland-Chan School of Massage Therapy and are located in Toronto, Ontario.

During our many years of teaching (23 and 16 years respectively), we have worked within 6 Massage Therapy College settings teaching core courses, supervising clinics and community outreach programs, as well as providing our post-graduate trainings for M.T.’s in professional practice.

We have pioneered and supervise massage therapy students within Level II & III hospital clinical Settings.

In addition to teaching, Cindy and Allison provide Massage Therapy for clients in their clinical practices.

We work in multi-disciplinary settings and collaborate with a wide range of primary and complementary care practitioners. We provide in-house training when requested. We write articles, appear in audio-visual material related to Perinatal Massage Therapy, and present at workshops and conferences.

Our reputations are solidly established within the birthing community and we are well known for our knowledge, integrity, good-humor, and professional expertise.

We love our work and feel honoured to have the gift of working in this amazing area!
