Eden F. – RMT

Always looking for ways to improve the health and wellness of individuals, I completed my initial education in Social Work in 2013 at MacEwan University, with a particular interest in Mental Health and Addictions. Afterward, I moved to Toronto, Ontario, and while there, completed the 2200 hour Massage Therapy Diploma program with honours at the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy.

Khoi T. – Apprentice Therapist

I always wanted a career where I could help others. And, now I have found myself in the therapeutic massage industry. I’m currently in my second year of the 3000 hours Advance Clinical Massage Therapy program at Makami College. I’ve never felt so right and joyful in my path to help others, so they can feel better and relax at the end of their rough days. I used to have many minor injuries from competing in Badminton tournaments that I learned a lot from. How to prevent injuries and how to use my skills for treatment and rehab. I also have 3 years experience in foot massage working as a pedicurist. I received great feedback on how relaxed people felt and what better sleep they had after our sessions.

Victoria T. – RMT

A few years ago I suffered  from a herniated disc in my neck while working out. At which time,  I tried a variety of modalities to help “put me back together again”. This is when I fell in love with massage therapy. I believe massage can be beneficial for all athletes not only to treat injuries, but to prevent them in the first place by increasing mobility and muscle flexibility.

Whether you are looking to relieve pain and muscle tension, or you would like to simply experience the relaxing benefits of massage, I look forward to working with you to help you achieve those goals.
