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.

McKenna

Administrative Intern

I have always had a love for beauty and cosmetics, since I was as young as I can remember I was always fixing up my hair, and watching my mom glam herself up. When I personally got into makeup I felt a sense of confidence it brought me, and I had fun doing it. Because of my interests, I always knew I wanted to work in the beauty industry. I particularly love the beauty industry because I get to watch the people around me feel confident and beautiful in their skin. I took the steps to graduate high school early and my next goal is to get my aesthetician certification and then continue my education by getting my associate’s degree in nursing so that someday I can make people feel confident and beautiful as well.

If I am not at the spa, you can find me hanging out with my supportive family, playing with my adorable puppy, exploring nature, or getting my green thumb on in the garden.
