Founder and RMT
Tiana graduated from the extended 3000 hour program at West Coast College of Massage Therapy, an institution that offers one of the highest educational standards in the country. She is currently studying advanced anatomy through the Bachelor of Health Science degree program at Thompson River University. Through continuing education opportunities, Tiana has complete over 70 hours within an anatomy lab examining cadavers. This experience has given her advanced knowledge of the interconnected structures within the body, allowing her to create treatments targeted at eliminating the problem rather than temporarily covering up the pain. Her style strives to rejuvenate a client’s spirit while rehabilitating their physical dysfunctions. Tiana has worked extensively with a variety of conditions, most notably; desk worker’s syndrome, deep tissue athletics, headaches and migraines, pregnancy, pseudo-sciatica (piriformis syndrome), thoracic outlet syndrome, and chronic lower back pain. As health is a continually evolving state, her style involves deep tissue massage and assigning home care exercise to her clients to prolong the beneficial results of each treatment. “Due to the time I spent working within a spa environment, I’ve seen the effect that deep relaxation can have on muscle tension, allowing a therapist to work deeply and at a less painful scale for the client. As a therapist I like to incorporate flowing techniques aimed at increasing relaxation for an enjoyable, yet very deep and therapeutic experience.
