Candice graduated from Trillium college as a registered massage therapist in 2017. After gaining 2 years of experience working in a multi-disciplinary clinic primarily focused on neck and back pain in Ontario, she moved back to the mountains of Banff to pursue her passions of snowboarding and hiking . She is in good standing with the CMTO and the Canadian Massage & Osteopathic Therapists Association. Trained in Swedish massage, joint mobilizations, sports massage and cupping, she enjoys working with people of all ages and abilities. Her strong hands make Candice effective in treating sports and chronic repetitive injuries.
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, lymphatic activation and well being. Alongside this system her interests are but not limited to; scar mobilization (including post-mastectomy), post-surgical recovery, core rotation issues from high intensity sports, rib malalignment and current or chronic neck pain. Entering into her sixth year of practice she has broadened her education to include pelvic floor dysfunction which has been an asset to helping women with caesarean section restrictions (new or old), chronic back pain and men suffering from ‘groin pulls’. In all these areas you’ll often find her using dynamic movement, breath coaching, 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 21 years, has an interest in herbs, aromatherapy and has a grand appreciation for the Western pace. Coming this August ‘21, I’ll be taking an extended course surrounding TMJ
Josh graduated from Makami College in Alberta (2020) earning his Registered Advanced Clinical Massage Therapy Diploma. Growing up an athlete, playing competitive hockey and other sports, Josh knows about dealing with injuries, concussions, and the necessity of rehabilitation. This led him to massage therapy; understanding how it can benefit physical recovery and at the same time relieving the mental stress an injury can cause. Josh’s goal is to work with each patient individually, meeting their specific needs through deep tissue massage, sports massage, myofascial release and cupping. He is happy to offer his professional advice on strengthening exercises, stretching or movement that may help outside the treatment room. He has a profound love of nature and enjoys golf, hiking, biking, hockey and snowboarding.
