Registered massage therapist Shayna Tate graduated from the massage therapy program at International Academy of Massage.
Shayna’s practise is grounded in both therapeutic and relaxation massage, having been trained in Swedish massage, Trigger point release, myofascial release and joint mobilizations. Currently, she continues to build her repertoire training in muscle energy and positional release techniques. Additionally, she incorporates calming and soothing energy work techniques being certified in Reiki.
Moreover, she has an extensive background in fine art, being commissioned for various art pieces for clients and galleries over the years. Furthermore, she loves to dance, cook, exercise, and spend time with the people she loves.
Shayna believes in treating each of her clients with a holistic approach to facilitate a well rounded treatment plan, guiding the body back to its natural healing process, feeling very relaxed, grounded, and with a feeling of returning to a balanced body.
Nico Gravel has been practicing massage therapy for 3 years. He’s a graduate from Everest College here in Ottawa. After 3 years in the industry, Nico decided that massage therapy wasn’t enough to help his clients and that it was only scratching the surface as far as treating physical conditions.
In order to better treat his clients, Nico has decided to undertake his Master’s degree in Osteopathic Medicine in order to unlock the hidden natural healing potentials of the human body. It is his belief that the human body holds the inert ability to heal itself, the therapist is just there to serve as a catalyst or fulcrum in order to help the human body find its way.
Like all massage therapists in Ontario, Nico has been trained in lymphatic drainage, general Swedish techniques, dynamic and static stretching as well has rehabilitation techniques. Nico specializes in athletic maintenance, sport rehabilitation, myofascial release, injury management as well as joint play and structural rehabilitation. As Nico explores and evolves in the osteopathic field, you can expect that his treatment style will also evolve into a much more structure based treatment rather than a traditional massage based treatment. Structure governs function, by treating the structure first, one is able to re-integrate soft tissue to its normal function thus eliminating pain.
Nico will be working 2 days a week to begin. Feel free to book an appointment.
If you have any questions at all, Nico will be more than willing to talk with you and explore the right course of action with your best interest in mind.
