Emma M. – RMT

I’ve always liked problem solving and understanding how things work. I find the interactions between the muscles, fascia, brain… fascinating; how an issue in the feet can create pain in the back, tension in the shoulder can trigger a headache, or stress can upset the stomach. 

My goal is to find and treat the root of the problem rather than just the symptoms, and get you back to living pain-free. You’re not you when you’re achy!

Lee-Anne C. – RMT

Throughout my life, I often worked 2 to 3 jobs at a time and rarely made time for myself. Accumulation of stress and tension in my body affected me personally and professionally as a Chef de Partie. As you can imagine, holding multiple positions allowed me to stockpile my health benefits so I finally ended up going for a massage. Wow! I loved the affect it had on me and I quickly realized that massage could really improve a person’s way of life. That is when I decided to formally study it and make health and wellness my new career path. Through specifically designed treatment plans, my goal is to educate and help people so they can live a pain and stress free life.

I look forward to working with you on your journey to self-care and overall wellness.
