Tracy Bliss is a Registered Massage Therapist and member of the Massage Therapist Association of Alberta (MTAA), who graduated from MH Vicars School of Massage Therapy in 2015 from their 2200 hour program. She is also certified in Rapid Neurofacial Reset.
Tracy’s approach to massage is intuitive while always listening to and respecting her clients’ needs. She approaches massage from both a therapeutic and relaxation standpoint, using a beneficial combination of both during her treatments. Treatments may include but are not limited to: trigger point release, myofascial release, Rapid Neurofacial Reset, and relaxation.
Tracy enjoys working with clients of all ages, and is fascinated by the fact that while we all have the same body make up, every person is completely unique. She is always learning and deepening her knowledge of massage, and is passionate about the endless opportunities for learning as a massage therapist. In the future, Tracy is looking forward to becoming certified in cupping and plans to start some Craniosacral Courses and Visceral Manipulation in the not too distant future.
Hi my name is Leanne Power, I have been a Registered Massage Therapist and member of Natural Health Practitioners of Canada (NHPC) since 1999.
I love the science behind pain, the physiology of movement and figuring out the crazy things our bodies do to compensate for dysfunction, injury, trauma and tensions in our bodies. I treat using best of both worlds, a whole-body approach combined with the science of pain and movement.
My passion is in injury rehabilitation, sports related goals, functional movement, athletes and youth.
I am also a very intuitive therapist and am learning to really honour the energy portion of healing, informed trauma care and gentle approach to nudging you to see deeper into your physical pain and how it may be linked to emotional pain.
My approach is to create a plan to help you achieve your goals with the Mind and Body as a whole – It will be up to you whether you incorporate your Spirit.
The key to being a great massage therapist is a thorough knowledge of your medical history, communicating effectively with the client, trusting my instincts and intuition and most importantly – listen to what the body is telling me. The body doesn’t lie if you listen, observe and follow the path of restriction!
I look forward to helping you RESET!
CMMOTA (Canadian Massage and Osteopathic Therapist Association)
Hi, my name is Allie (Alexandra) Colquhoun, I graduated in 2016 from Alberta College of Massage Training in Grande Prairie and am a member of the Canadian Massage and Manual Osteopathic Association (CMMOTA). Since graduating I have furthered my therapeutic knowledge by taking myofascial cupping and having recently started my RAPID neurofascial reset course. Along with therapeutic massage I also have knowledge in relaxation and prenatal massage.
At a young age I knew I wanted to be a massage therapist and as a gym fanatic and mother of 3 I have personally experienced the magic of seeing a massage therapist regularly. My focus is to not only get my clients back to living a pain free life but to also teach my clients about their bodies and give them the tools they need to reduce their pain at home in between appointments. Over the years my studies have led me to a fascial massage approach over a muscle focus. The fascia is the connective tissue that connects every part of the body to every other part of the body, it surrounds your muscle tissue and holds your organs in place. Addressing the fascia whether through stretching, cupping or RAPID NFR can reduce pain, increase range of motion, reduce future risk of injury and increase blood flow (because your fascia is no longer constricting blood vessels) which means faster exercise recovery and improved sports performance. I want to teach all my clients how to maintain healthy fascia.
I enjoy working with all types of clients but especially those who have had chronic pain their whole life. If you have a history of sprained ankles, I will gladly spend an hour working on your feet, ankles and calves to ensure that we are fixing the problem and then maybe the next treatment we could work on your hamstrings, glutes and hip flexors to help reduce your lower back pain and increase your range of motion. If you would like a full body tune-up we can fit that in there too. Each treatment I do is unique to whomever is on my table and I thrive with communication, if the pressure isn’t right let me know, if the pain you are having is just a little more to the left let me know; this is your time and you have every right to tell me exactly what you need.
Massage is not just a luxury but a way to a happier, healthier life.

Sessions with Megan are focused on finding tension, patterns and stress within fascia, muscles, organs, emotions and working with clients to release them. She blends therapies and approaches through intuition and always meets each body where they are at.

Hello! My name is Raina Diaz, born and raised in Edmonton Alberta. I Graduated from MH Vicars School of Massage 2200 hour program in 2019. I am also a Certified SFH Dynamic Cupping Therapist.
I was initially drawn to this career through my own healing journey. I spent many years suffering from chronic abdominal pain. Multiple doctor’s appointments, tests, ultrasounds, x-rays and no answers. Until one day I went for a massage that changed my life. I will never forget the tears I shed when I felt the root cause of my issues be pinpointed and touched. They were not tears of pain or sadness but a deep release of the emotions this previously unknown pain source was causing. Right after that I enrolled in school and through massage, hydro therapy, cupping and other supporting modalities I overcame and got rid of the chronic pain. Because of that I hold a deep understanding and perspective for clients that come to me with chronic pain.
My massage style combines Therapeutic massage, relaxation, hydro therapy (hot and cold), cupping and energy work.
I see myself as a vehicle to healing. I am here to support my clients in getting from point A to Point B. Ensuring each person that comes to me for help feels empowered and knows that they are the driver steering their course of healing. Whether that be deep tissue, sports massage, stretching, light touch, energy work or not.
Outside of my career, I am a mother, an active community member, I support women’s healing work and empowerment, I am an artist, a lover of nature, animals, and all things wild. I am also currently enrolled in Photography at MacEwan University. I would say I am a student of life. Always looking for new perspectives and new ways to express myself.
Please email [email protected] if you have any questions and I look forward to working with you.

“Adaptive Yoga” is gentle, “customized” yoga, often practiced in a chair. It is accessible to those who may struggle with pain, health restrictions or mobility issues, offering modifications as required.
Yoga increases mobility, strength, flexibility, and joint stability. Both yoga and meditation help activate the relaxation response of the parasympathetic nervous system, improving the functioning of your entire nervous system (the ANS) and the endocrine system, which affects your hormones. Both meditation and yoga help cells and DNA to regenerate and repair, providing strong anti-aging benefits. They help decrease anxiety and stress, lower blood pressure and improve mood. There is a positive impact on neural health by the toning of the vagus nerve, the longest nerve in the body. It boosts the immune system and is a powerful mindfulness practice.
A main component of yoga and meditation is Pranayama (the practice of breath regulation). The goal of pranayama is to connect your body and mind. It also supplies your body with oxygen while removing toxins, providing healing physiological and emotional benefits.

I am a registered dietitian who graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from the University of Alberta in 2019. I work one on one with clients to provide support for making healthy lifestyle changes, independent of weight loss. I believe that weight is not a good indicator of health and strive to provide evidence based information in a compassionate environment, free of judgment.
Diet culture continues to erode our self esteem and self worth by telling us weight loss is synonymous with health, reinventing unsustainable ‘food rules’ to get there, and then blaming us for our inability to maintain the unattainable. I believe this mentality is so harmful for our overall well-being.
I have personally wasted so much time, energy and money on restrictive menu plans, plans where I was counting calories, macros or points, eliminating whole food groups and starting exercise plans that left me exhausted, with little energy for anything else, hungry and worst of all, feeling shameful of my own lack of willpower; all for the sake of shrinking my body. And then I said Enough.
My mission is to support people to claim what health means to them while also saying Enough. To support them in their journey to reject diet culture, become accepting of their body, learn to move their bodies in gentle, instead of punishing ways. Our bodies need this. Our minds need this. Our souls need this.
I have found the best way to support my clients on their journeys is to meet them where they are at. Both the client and practitioner have valuable information to bring to the table and healthy lifestyle changes can only be made in collaboration.
I often have people ask me what they will get from an appointment with me, and this is a really tough question to answer. Because my sessions are driven so much by what is important to my clients, everybody gets something a bit different out of our time together. That being said, all of my clients have access to a safe space to talk about what is important to them, free of judgment. They also leave my office with realistic and sustainable goals, complete with an action plan and any resources required to achieve them, as well as the accountability some find helps to give that little push they need to implement lasting change.

Woman’s Empowerment Master Life Coach, Master NLP User, Masters in CBT, and Hypnotherapist.
Working with woman in life transition has always been my passion, whether that means leaving a relationship, changing or beginning a new career, breaking down triggers or resentment, as well as rediscovering one’s passion. Digging deep, discovering and releasing triggers from the past using processes and techniques allows healing and freedom.
The use of NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) provide us with tools to recondition our habits, patterns and behaviors that we want to change or alter. We are all conditioned from a young age and throughout our lives.
Hypnosis is another great tool, releasing fears or phobias, habits such as smoking or drinking. Also blocking certain experiences from our consciousness is very common after a trauma and hypnosis creates a safe space to dig deep into memories in order to heal.
Life Coaching will unlock your potential for the future you deserve!
