Vanessa uses a combined approach that may involve techniques such as Swedish Massage, Trigger Point Release, Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy, tailored to your particular needs.
In addition to her hands on treatments, she provides accessible homecare and exercise suggestions in order to help you get more out of your massage. Having a diverse practice, Vanessa enjoys working with a variety of clients including adult and youth athletes, seniors, and individuals with chronic pain. She welcomes all bodies and all genders, and subscribes to a Health at Every Size approach to care.
Having recently celebrated her 15th anniversary as a Registered Massage Therapist, Vanessa’s experience includes advanced training in Prenatal Massage, Postpartum Massage, Massage for the Complicated Pregnancy, and Post-Cesarean Massage. Additional training and experience includes therapeutic breast massage, including working with clients post-mastectomy, after breast augmentation, and after gender-affirming surgeries.
When not working at the job she loves, Vanessa enjoys exploring Squamish with her young daughter, as well as singing in a community choir, hiking, skiing, and baking a mean Chocolate Peanut Butter Pillow.
