Helen

Helen

Traditional Manual Therapist & Registered Massage Therapist

Helen’s passion and unique manual therapy approach provide a gentle, caring, holistic restoration of the inherent self-healing and regulation mechanism of your body. Over time, your body lessens this ability due to the process of aging, illness, trauma, repetitive injury, surgical scarring, postural imbalances, emotion, and mental and spiritual stresses.

The goal of each session is to precisely assess and address the root cause instead of the symptoms.  The session includes a full assessment, manual manipulation and integration.  Modalities such as muscle energy, cranio-sacral, fascial normalization, organic manipulation, and active stretching combine to restore the balance of fluids and tissues.

Helen’s 25 years of experience and education in Manual Osteopathy (Canadian College of Osteopathy), Massage Therapy (2200 hour Canadian training), Acupuncture, Personal Fitness Training (NASM), and Reflexology are beneficial for those who have tried “everything” and still have pain or dysfunction that prevents living life to the fullest.

Griffy

Griffy

Licensed Aesthetician And Massage Therapist

Hello there! My name is Griffy (GRIF-fee) Lové (LUV-ay)!

From a young age, I have had a drive to help others and a dream of becoming a healer. Over the last few years, those passionate desires were achieved! With ambitions to always continue learning, I aspire to help as many people as I can relax and help manage the effects of daily stress upon the body. I have interests in several eastern modalities in the therapeutic world of healing as well as western modalities I’d like to add to my certifications to be the best healer I can be. When it comes to the world of esthetics, I’m always passionate about giving 1000%.

– “I love what I do, so I don’t see this as work. Best part of my day is taking someone who is stressed from their day to day responsibilities or maybe they just haven’t had a good day in a while – and I help them to finally relax and unwind. It’s a truly beautiful thing.”

Unicorns, Nature and Crystals are a few of my likes along with an enjoyment of the grand outdoors while photography, gardening, writing, hiking (and a plethora of geeky interests like anime and gaming) are just a few of the ways I like to spend my free time. With a calling to heal, I strive to help others sparkle on the inside and out; because everyone deserves to feel like a pampered unicorn. 🙂

Ann

Ann

Licensed Massage Therapist

Ann has been engaged in the study and practice of the healing arts from an early age. Reading Edgar Cayce, and Paramahansa Yoganada before entering secondary school,  teaching herself simple yoga postures as a pre-teen, and quenching her thirst for knowledge on nutrition through participation in hands-on cooking workshops, Ann has come to acknowledge that this learning and yearning for the ingredients of a healthy life are never over.

 

Anns background in body-work spans over 15 years with both established and continuing education.  The modalities she can offer include relaxation, Swedish, deeper work, neuromuscular, trigger point, hot stones, and aromatherapy.  The importance of regular body-work to reduce stress, calm and rejuvenate overworked muscles, and acknowledge the need for self-care, of course, is a concept known to many.  While many are aware of the relevance and benefits of massage, taking the time for time-out is called for, and one way to do this is to see each session as an opportunity to let go of patterns in overworked or under-worked musculature, to release that which no longer serves, and in essence, each session offers the opportunity to experience life anew.  Take time today to experience your true self
