Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is open to members and non-members!

Our registered massage therapists (RMT) provide a treatment-based practice in treating both acute and chronic conditions. RMTs can work on all ages of clients in the treatment of illness, injury, rehabilitation, and disability. They also offer therapeutic, relaxation massage to be used as part of preventive care programs. This includes injury prevention, ongoing stress management, and more.

Together, you and your therapist will develop a treatment plan based on your needs. Massage therapy may be claimed through third party insurance.

TREATMENT-BASED MASSAGE
Treatment-based massage finds and treats conditions bringing about the process of healing. A treatment-based massage requires an assessment to determine the correct course of treatment.
Among other benefits, treatment-based massage can:
• Treat muscle and skeletal dysfunctions
• Help heal sports and accidental injuries
• Increase muscle and joint flexibility and range of motion
• Ease pain of acute and chronic conditions
• Improve athletic performance and prevent further injury
• Help with chronic health conditions

RELAXATION MASSAGE
Relaxation massage promotes a feeling of vitality and well-being while help to reduce everyday stress. Relaxation massage can also:
• Reducing stress
• Help the lymphatic system to maintain a healthy immune system

Meet our Massage Therapy Team

Bonnie Knapp

I bring a different style and element to my massage therapy treatments, which developed from the feeling that there was more than meets the eye when it comes to the body. I am currently a student at the Canadian College of Osteopathy (3rd Year) and apply these principles and concepts to my daily work. Osteopathy aims to find the source of the problem; it is a whole body approach which allows the body to restore to its natural state of harmony. Treatments will include elements of assessment, myofascial techniques, and Cranio-Sacral therapy, blended with the therapeutic benefits of massage.

 

Nichole Komosky, RMT
I am a graduate from Wellington College of remedial Massage Therapy. I am certified in advanced therapeutic massage, relaxation, soft tissue release, cranial-sacral massage, sports massage, and pregnancy massage. I am also licenced to do Rib Assessments and Mobilizations.

I have also obtained training in breast massage which is beneficial for pre- and post-menopausal breast congestion, pre- and post-breast augmentation, and post-mastectomy.

I have extensive experience working with clients with multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and spinal cord injuries, and I also work with those in geriatrics and palliative care.

Long term goals for myself include furthering my education and interests in manual lymphatic drainage and palliative care.

 

Suzanne Shelton, RMT, BPE

I graduated as an RMT in 2015 from Massage Therapy College of Manitoba. My training and knowledge of anatomy, the human body, and movement goes back many decades. In addition to numerous fitness, nutrition, and health certificates, I also have a Bachelor of Physical Education from the University of Manitoba. Over the years, I have taught yoga, Zumba, an array of fitness classes, as well as fitness testing and personal training.

My massage background includes private clinics, fitness/medical facility, and a popular local spa. Since graduation, I have continued learning and studying with one of the foremost teachers in myofascial massage and also have training in Thai Yoga massage and Trager.
