Thera Jordan

Registered Massage Therapist

Massage Therapy  ♦  Basic Lymph Drainage 

 Hot Stone Massage (Therapeutic and/or Relaxation) Available seasonally, ending May 14/18.

 

I am a graduate, with Honours, of The Western College of Remedial Massage Therapy Inc., 2013.  I was a clerical employee for the Government of Saskatchewan prior to becoming an RMT.  I have memories of sitting at a desk ALL day; experiencing neck, across the shoulder, between the shoulder blade, lower back and hip, general ALL over aches, pains & headaches.  Carpal Tunnel like symptoms affect so many.  I now have the knowledge and ability to offer relief of many of these discomforts.  

In my 3 years at ABA I have learned different techniques to make a 'deep tissue', 'therapeutic' treatment as comfortable, if not relaxing, as possible.  I am trained in Therapeutic/Relaxation Hot Stone Massage and Basic Lymph Drainage.  Using a combination of these modalities I have learned to ease into the tissue in order to soften cramping, tight, sore muscles.  

For those of you with acute, new injuries (sprains/strains/breaks) Lymph Drainage helps to relieve swelling and promotes healing.

If all you are looking to do is to de-stress and melt the day away, I can do this too.  

The human body is magnificent in its ability to create life and to heal itself.  I believe that in order to achieve best results Massage Therapy requires a joint effort between therapist and client.  You, I, we all live in our own bodies ALL the time so specific home care may be given after each treatment to ensure the correction of postural imbalances that lead to dysfunction and pain.  Animals give their bodies a little stretch as soon as they stand up. We as humans seem to forget this nifty little life hack….    

I look forward to working with many different methods, hoping to make a positive change.  I look forward to meeting and working with you!

Therapeutic Massage ♦ RAPID Neurofascial Reset  ♦ Sports Massage ♦ Deep Tissue

Hot-stone Massage ♦  Prenatal Massage  

I was born and raised in small community in southern Saskatchewan. I eventually moved to Calgary where I was a Correctional Officer for 12 years. In 2014 the call to come home became too loud to ignore so I enrolled in the Western College of Remedial Massage Therapy, graduating in June 2016. I am now trained to rehabilitate people in a new, exciting, and interactive roll. Along with my diploma from WCRMT I am certified in a variety of other areas to help serve you better such as prenatal and RAPID Neurofascial Reset (NFR). NFR is focused on pain relief from such ailments as sciatica, plantar fasciitis, migraines, frozen shoulder as well as a many others; it requires no oil and targets the fascia that is a large part of who we are. I look forward to using the knowledge I have gained to help you find some freedom.

Jessica Swanson

Registered Massage Therapist

Therapeutic Massage ♦ Deep Tissue ♦ Reiki Practitioner

My name is Jessica Swanson and I am a Registered Massage Therapist and Certified Reiki Master. Before choosing a new career path, I spent my days working with children in different settings- I worked in a Day Care, I was a Nanny, I worked in a Before and After School program all of which were great positions but it wasn’t going to be a long-term career. I knew there was more to me and more to what I could offer the world.

I found Reiki in 2012 and practiced it here and there until I decided to take it further and I received my certification as a Reiki Master in March of 2016. Since then I have had many experiences in my day to day life that reinforce my belief in life and the energy around us.

I chose to start at Western College of Remedial Massage Therapies in September 2016, knowing the two modalities would go hand in hand. I am nothing short of amazed at the knowledge I gained in two short years and I am very eager to use what I have learned to help my clients return to function, whatever that looks like to you.
