Lydia Giammartino
MMedSc, BKin, RMT
Dexterity PD Instructor & Course Development Associate

Lydia Giammartino is a Registered Massage Therapist who graduated at the top of her class from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy. Prior to becoming a massage therapist, Lydia completed a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and a Master’s degree in Medical Sciences and has been working in the healthcare field for over fifteen years in various capacities, including being a paramedic and an assistant to doctors in the field of chronic pain management.

She has a passion for the medical sciences and sharing that knowledge with others, which is why she divides her time between her massage therapy practice and teaching massage therapy students.


Lydia collaborated with Dexterity PD to create courses that showcase her advanced scientific and healthcare knowledge. The first course provides a detailed discussion of the anatomy and physiology of the immune system. The second complementary course provides practical information on how to safely and effectively treat immunocompromised individuals.

As a member of the Course Development Team, Lydia is also heavily involved in the creation of our annual RMT Exam Prep program.
