Registered Massage Therapist
Postural Alignment Specialist
Certified Wellness Coach
As a dedicated practitioner, I've been serving as a Registered Massage Therapist since 1998, proudly maintaining a pristine standing with the esteemed College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. My life journey in wellness started after I went to school for Hotel and Resort Operations, then worked for 2 years in a bar, where a coworker brought up the idea of Massage therapy school. I was introduced to massage and wellness as a child, massaged my friends, and was interested in it I just didn't know it could be a career. I took my education in Sutton, then moved to Barrie. That is where my family started. I spent years building up my business in Gravenhurst before returning to the Owen Sound area, my home roots to raise my 2 children. My wellness journey is enriched by my certification as a Postural Alignment Specialist in the renowned Egoscue Method, alongside being a Licensed PTX therapist. Committed to constant evolution, I embrace continuing education courses each year to amplify my knowledge, experience, and collection of certifications.
A Personalized Approach to Wellness:
My massage techniques are a testament to my commitment to tailoring every experience to my client's unique needs and expectations. Whether you seek the soothing embrace of relaxation, the therapeutic benefits of deep tissue massage, or a fusion of both, my aim is to create a haven of comfort and rejuvenation. Witnessing the continuous improvements and tangible results in my clients' well-being is a source of immense joy. Their transformative journeys span massage therapy, postural care, wellness coaching, and alternative treatments. My holistic approach is grounded in the firm belief in the interconnectedness between body, mind, and heart. I understand that our bodies hold onto past injuries, traumas, and emotional burdens until we learn to acknowledge and collaborate with them.
Empowering Change Through Custom Solutions:
My celebrated Postural Solutions program has proven to be a game-changer for my clients. Swift and tangible relief from pain is achieved through personalized routines and unwavering dedication. These exercises are more than just movements – they are the gateway to greater flexibility, improved stability, and enhanced balance. Their consistency not only mitigates recurring issues but also ushers in a realm of pain-free movement.
Your Wellness Advocate:
In my philosophy, prevention is paramount. That's why I emphasize the importance of incorporating preventive routines in both massage and exercise, offering a shield against long-term discomfort. Discussing your unique needs with your therapist is the first step toward discovering the ideal routine and treatment plan tailored to you.
Together, let's redefine well-being through a seamless fusion of expertise, experience, and a profound understanding of the intricate connections that make you whole.
Elevating Expertise through Continuous Learning:
My commitment to growth and excellence led me to earn certificates from the realm of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), enriching my understanding of effective communication and mental processes and the Robbins-Madanes Strategic Intervention program, specializing in life coaching, relationship strategies, and personal growth plus Activation Method Coaching. I am the proud author of "Love Unconditionally" a book that encourages the journey of self-acceptance and love. My voice extended beyond the pages as I joined Podcast Business News Network for a remarkable 10 weeks as a guest, sharing insights and wisdom alongside host Steve Harper. *book available for purchase directly through Candace Grant
