Get Started

Registered Massage Therapy (RMT) with Breanne

My journey... 

I can't honestly say that I spent my whole life dreaming of becoming a massage therapist. I came to massage therapy in a bit of a roundabout way. In the beginning stages of carving out a viable career path for myself, I discovered that I was actually much more interested in studying the human mind than I was interested in studying the human body. 

In University I studied both psychology and philosophy, and enjoyed it so much that I spent my final 2 years of undergrad preparing for graduate school. I wrote a Bachelor’s level thesis on self-talk, and applied to law school with a 4.0 GPA. I had every intention of becoming a lawyer (until I actually went to law school). 

In 2014 I chose to leave the world of academia and followed my heart to India. I completed my first yoga teacher training certification in Rishikesh, and then travelled to Saoner to immerse myself in Tantric practices at Shivoham Ashram. I stayed in India for nine months.

When I returned to Canada, I continued to take yoga teacher training courses (I have certifications in pre and post natal, yin, iRest yoga nidra meditation, and Critical Alignment Therapy) until I eventually started teaching. I quickly realized that teaching group yoga classes in a way that is safe for everybody is hard (almost impossible), and that my 500(+) hours of teacher training had grossly unprepared me for the array of bodies and bodily injuries that would ultimately present themselves in my classes. This led to my transition away from teaching group yoga classes, and toward working with private clients as a massage therapist.

Before I committed to a two-year massage therapy diploma program, I took a few continuing education courses on fascia and acupressure. These two courses continue to influence the way that I practice massage therapy today, though I have expanded my practice over the years to include lighter touch therapies such as lymphatic work and CranioSacral Therapy.

I call my current massage treatment style a mix between therapeutic and Swedish relaxation, with a slow, intenful, medium-firm pressure. My treatments almost always include an element of fascial work, breathwork and somatic experiencing. I do no subscribe to the "no pain, no gain" model, and kindly request those seeking a painful massage to book with a different therapist. My ideal client will take a proactive approach toward wellness by booking their massage therapy treatments several weeks or months in advance, rather than booking a last-minute appointment only in response to injury or pain. 

Although I continue to practice traditional massage therapy on a part time basis, my personal and professional interests are shifting toward somatics and trauma informed massage therapy. By the end of 2024, I will have completed a three year program certifying me as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, allowing me to blend elements of somatic work with massage therapy and to offer a more integrative treatment experience.

One of my favourite parts about being a massage therapist is that it allows me the opportunity to step into the role of empathetic witness. Above everything else, what is most important to me as a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) is that we find a way to co-create a container of safety; a space where you can breathe deeply and come to feel restored. 

Acupuncture and Coaching With Dr. Jess

Hey! My name is Dr. Jess Reynolds (but I mostly go by Jess). I am a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Integrative Medicine, an Acupuncturist and a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). My practice has been tremendously gratifying, and through it I have had the opportunity to work with many people — helping them heal, body mind and spirit.

I have been teaching in the classroom for the last seven years, and have been told by students and colleagues alike that it is my purpose. The focus of my lectures has been Psychology, Personal Growth, Nutrition, Orthopedic Assessment and Functional Medicine. My passion, however, is in self-development of any kind. I am a true believer in becoming the best version of yourself.  

Between my clinical practice and teaching experience, I have gained a wealth of knowledge in the world of health and wellness.

Frequently asked questions...

Does acupuncture hurt?

Acupuncture shouldn't hurt. The sensation is best described as a dull ache. 

How can I pay for my session?

We accept cash or interact e-transfer.  

 

How long do I need in between sessions?

The body needs 2-3 days to heal after treatment. After your initial treatment, you may be advised to rebook 3 days later. Some clients benefit from one treatment per week. Some clients benefit from one treatment every 6 weeks. 

Can I book an acupuncture treatment with Dr. Jess followed by a massage with Breanne? 

Yes, this is a very restorative treatment combination! Typically we offer a combination of 45 minutes of acupuncture with Dr. Jess, immediately followed by 60 minutes of massage therapy with Breanne. If you have a complex case requiring a full assessment, be prepared for 60 minutes of acupuncture, followed by 60 minutes of massage therapy. Whether or not a full assessment is needed will be determined upon arrival. 

Do you provide mobile sessions?

Dr. Jess does not provide mobile acupuncture sessions. 


Breanne provides mobile massage sessions to a select number of clients only, at an additional cost. Please contact her to inquire about her mobile availability. 

Do you offer direct billing?

No. We will email you a receipt at the end of your session that can be submitted to your Alberta insurance provider for reimbursement.   

Does treatment include use of the sauna?

All massage therapy treatments include an optional 15 minutes of additional time in the infrared sauna, either before or after your treatment. You must book this as an "add-on" service when booking your massage. Please indicate in the notes if you would like to use the sauna either before or after your scheduled treatment time, and bring swimwear to your appointment. 

Do you have a waiting room? How early should I arrive for my appointment?  

Unfortunately we do not have a waiting room. Please do not arrive any earlier than 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment. Our preference is that you arrive as close to your appointment time as possible, and that you arrive alone. 

What should I wear?

That depends on your treatment.


Acupuncture and Registered Massage Therapy (RMT): you will undress and remain covered underneath the sheets. Only the area being worked on will be exposed. Most clients keep their underwear on, though this is up to the client. The therapist will always ensure that you are properly draped with a sheet. 

 

Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST): please wear comfortable, athletic clothing (no buttons, no zippers, no jeans). 


CranioSacral Therapy (CST) and Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT): you have the option to remain fully clothed. Comfortable, loose clothing is recommended.
