Are you tired of living with pain and looking for a way to change that?  You may be in luck!

Rosemarie (Marie) Trafford, RMT, CLT, CDT is the owner and operator of Assessment First Remedial Massage Therapy.  She has spent the past 11-years training her hands and her mind to help you figure out what is causing the pain.  Once that is done, then she tries to help your nervous system, muscles and lymphatic system learn something new to relieve or change some of the pain and discomfort you are feeling.

Assessment First Remedial Massage Therapy is located inside Prairie View Physiotherapy.  Due to Covid-19, massage clients are using separate doors under the sign that says Prairie View with Assessment First on the door at  385 Parkview Road, Yorkton, SK S3N 2L4.  Clients are asked to call, or text 306-860-9909, and wait until Marie Trafford meets you at the door.  You will be asked to wash your hands and then put on the mask that will be given to you.
