About Vanessa

Vanessa was drawn to the soul-to-soul connection of Massage Therapy and went on to study at Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton, AB, graduating with distinction in 2010. Missing the Toon Town vibe, she made the decision to move back home in 2013 and continued her practice as a mobile therapist at long term care facilities, out of her home and within a multi-disciplinary health care clinic.
It was during the “covid pause” that Vanessa found herself reevaluating the future of her career, which ultimately led her to gratefully welcome a new chapter within the warmth and vibrancy of the Pura Vida Yoga Loft in July 2020.
Her treatments are based in the therapeutic Swedish Massage style, with a wholesome respect for the mind-body connection that is crucial to pain recovery and well-being. She is able to help with a diverse range of needs, including mental and emotional health, chronic illness and disability and acute physical trauma. Vanessa considers the full scope of health and well-being, by working with each client to improve quality of life indicators, such as energy, sleep, social functioning, coping skills, mood, relaxation and mindfulness. She welcomes adults and children, pre and post-natal women, and of course our seniors and all of the invaluable wisdom that they carry.
Outside of her work life, Vanessa and her two young kids are often found squishing their toes in mud, sand or snow at the riverbank, biking or hiking to look for trees to climb or just mellowing out with a good book.

Book with Susynn

About Susynn

I am a Registered Massage Therapist, graduated with distinction from the Professional Institute of Massage Therapy. I have always been drawn to holistic and intuitive healing, body work and energy work. After spending five + years in the industrial trades, personally benefiting from Massage Therapy, I decided to take the leap to learn and practice this myself.

I have developed an understanding of treating pain and physical dysfunction, as well as maintaining tissue health starting with assessment, treatment and a follow up plan. This allows me to personalize each treatment to reach my clients goals. 

I use a combination of various techniques, including Swedish massage, joint mobilizations, myofascial release and trigger point release and continue to further my education and experiences. 

Looking forward to meeting you!
