She graduated from Trillium college as a registered massage therapist in 2017. She then worked for 2 years in Ontario, but the mountains were always calling her back. Driven by her passion for snowboarding and hiking, she returned to Banff and is delighted to be working with the Banff community. She is in good standing with the CMTO and the Canadian Massage & Osteopathic Therapists Association. Trained in swedish massage, joint mobilizations and cupping, she enjoys working with people of all ages and abilities.

And then there’s Glenn. Don’t let the 2 n’s scare you. Glenn has been practicing Massage Therapy for 13 years.
He’s been making local Bow Valley folk extremely uncomfortable for 10 years now. Glenn uses his brute strength, (attained by years of volunteering for the Banff Fire dept) to work his way into your overworked, tired and sore muscles. His massage styles range from therapeutic, myo-fascial, deep tissue, sports and active release techniques. Glenn has been an active member in the Bow Valley for 10 years. He eats peaks for breakfast so he can be home in time for his two darling daughters that have him wrapped around his little (but strong!) fingers.
Glenn registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) and Massage Therapists Association of Alberta(MTAA)
Amanda’s enthusiasm in the field of holistic health has been a constant in her life, which in turn is reflected in her individual approach to each human being. Just like our personalities, life stressors, personal experiences and biology they’re all unique so why shouldn’t our approach to balance and health be looked at in the same way?

After graduating from the Sutherland-Chan Massage Therapy Program in Ontario, Rae’s heart has brought her back to the West, now calling Banff home. First stepping into the healing arts with Reflexology at Mount Royal University (2010), she now integrates this method into her practice, finding it useful for alignment and painful or acute conditions. Alongside this system her interests are but not limited to; scar work (including post-mastectomy), core rotation issues from high intensity sports, post-surgical recovery and rib displacement. She has also begun to take a closer look at those recovering or dealing with chronic neck pain and postnatal women with an acute eye for dealing with caesarean section restrictions. In all these areas you’ll often find her using rhythmic movement, breath work, myofascial release and lymphatic drainage to achieve results that the patient and therapist can be pleased with. She believes listening to the language of the body helps to determine the right tools for working with an individual and making sure the tissues are responding. Outside of being an RMT she has been practicing yoga for 15 years, has an interest in herbs, aromatherapy and has a grand appreciation for the Western pace.
