Victoria graduated from Sutherland-Chan school of Massage Therapy in 2016, is registered and in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. She previously attended George Brown College and graduated in 2012 with an Advanced Esthetic certificate.
Having worked in a few spas in Toronto, Victoria has a strong relaxation influence and believes that massage therapy should be more than just a treatment, it should be an experience. By focusing on breathing and visualizing the areas of the body being worked on letting go, both the therapist and patient can work together to achieve the goals intended.
By using a variety of techniques throughout a massage therapy treatment such as Swedish, deep tissue, rhythmic, myofacial release, trigger point therapy and more, Victoria will work through the primary areas of pain and discomfort as well as compensatory areas to help release tension and improve overall wellbeing.
Victoria has experience working with patients with anxiety and depression, addiction, high stress occupations, pregnancy, sport enthusiasts, neuropathy, degenerative disc disorders, repetitive strain conditions, headaches, plantar fasciitis and young athletes.
There are many stressors in life and sometimes we can become disconnected with our body and mind. Human interaction and healing touch can help bring one’s self back into their body and gain awareness. While being in a comforting environment lets use the time we have together to let go of the everyday, and be in the now.
Judy is a graduate of Sutherland-Chan School of Massage Therapy and earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from McMaster University. She is a member in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario and the Registered Massage Therapists Association of Ontario.
As a passionate long-distance runner and a past career in corporate, Judy grew familiar with the strong connection between massage and injury prevention, recovery and overall physical and mental wellness. Having played sports for most of her life, Judy was first introduced to massage therapy at the tender age of ten. It was always an integral part of managing the symptoms brought on by her physical activities and the sedentary life at a “desk job”. This personal journey is what inspired her to go back to school to help others achieve the same benefits.
Her experience spans having treated patients with both acute and chronic conditions and has helped many alleviate pain and/or discomfort associated with these two. She believes that nothing in the body functions in isolation and by addressing both the physical body and mind, healing happens.
She takes a patient-centric approach to each of her treatments by incorporating a variety of techniques, including soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilization, myofascial and positional release, hydrotherapy and therapeutic exercise. In addition to these, Judy pursued further training in cupping therapy which uses the general concept of skin decompression to move around stagnant layers of skin to stimulate flow and in turn, may help alleviate pain.
By creating individualized treatment plans she has helped patients achieve performance goals, optimal function and well-being in their day-to-day lives. She will work with you to develop a planned approach that is unique to your case.
Judy believes she has truly found her calling; helping those in all stages of their lives from children to the aging population. She enjoys living and working within the Beach community and continues to enhance her knowledge of massage and treatment by dedicating herself to continuing education.

In addition to physical movement, Lena understands the power of the mind over the body in terms of performance, health and healing and incorporates breath, visualization and calming work into her treatments.

Lena is very passionate about mental and physical health and actively learns and shares a variety of healthy habits to incorporate into your daily life and routine such as yoga, meditation, stretching, and holistic natural approach to eating and living.
Donia has had the privilege of studying at both Sutherland Chan and RCCMT, blending the best of both schools in her approach to massage therapy, along with two BA Honours from Brock University, and an MA from the University of Guelph. She fell in love with massage therapy as a patient, having been an athlete (Rugby, Judo, Muay Thai, Running, Weightlifting) and professional painter, suffering from injuries and needing to preserve her body's ability to do physical labour. She credits goal and assessment-based massage for her ability to still use her body the way she does, after years of abuse, and she is overjoyed to be able to pass on the gift of non-invasive maintenance and recovery.
