REGISTERED PROFESSIONAL COUNSELLOR
Clo began a career in mental health after writing about her own struggles with an anxiety disorder and publishing the book Anxiety's Inner Voice in 2010. The anxiety and depression she wrote about in her book, drove her to find the path to her own successful healing through the skills of cognitive reframing, emotional self-acceptance, and mindful self-compassion.
Since then, Clo furthered her education to become a Registered Professional Counsellor and has gained over 6 year’s experience in both group and individual counselling. During this time, Clo has been profoundly honored to witness and help guide her clients to not only heal, but thrive and grow into their authentic selves.

The clinical modalities Clo draws on to create a tailored treatment plan for each individual include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, and Mindfulness.

NON REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPIST
Felicia's journey into the health and wellness field began over ten years ago as a personal trainer.
Throughout those years she developed the belief that wellness was more than about the physical body, and to achieve overall wellness the mind and spirt aspects must be taken into consideration too. This belief is what lead her to further her education towards taking a more holistic approach to her client’s well-being, graduating from CSNN as a Holistic Nutritionist in 2013 and completing her Reiki Second Degree in 2018.
On a more personal level, Felicia became a mom to a baby girl in 2011. Her girl is her biggest inspiration to continuously move forward to be the best version of herself. Eventually, this inspiration led her to train herself and others for various fitness events like, Femsport, and Tough Mudder.
Over those eight years she learned her most valuable lessons of leadership, and most importantly the value of teamwork.
While all these experiences contributed to her decision to pursue a career in massage therapy, a close look into her dear friend's journey with cancer played a substantial role in this final decision. During that time, she witnessed many health care professionals cross her friend's path, however, the effects the massage therapist had on her friend’s well-being were most memorable. It was during these appointments that her friend experienced the longest periods of momentary mental peace and physical relief. Witnessing this ignited in Felicia an even deeper passion to support others along their health and wellness journey.
CERTIFIED NUTRITIONAL PRACTITIONER, PERSONAL TRAINER
Melissa is a Holistic Nutritionist and Personal Trainer. Her love of grocery shopping nicely supplements her keen interest of experimenting in the kitchen and is always looking for new ways to fuel and move her body. She has lived in Chilliwack for most of her life, and not only enjoys the community but also all it has to offer to terms of locally grown, easily accessible, healthy food.
She is enthusiastic about nutrition and can trace this passion back to the age of 18 when she was working through the peak of an eating disorder. She realized that she did not know anything about food or nutrition and that without learning more about those topics that she would not be able to support herself and feel better. That moment in time spurred her curiosity, and she just could not learn enough. She experimented tirelessly and learned about different, new-to-her foods and new body movements that made her body feel good. It was a process as she learned to approach food in a new way; a way where food supported and provided fuel for her life, and not a way where food powered and perpetuated a disorder.
As a start, she obtained her personal training certification. Soon after, she realized that food is an integral part of the movement and she headed down the path to becoming a holistic nutritionist. The ultimate goal is to combine nutrition with movement to better support the body.

Pain is experienced in the brain and if pain signals continue unchecked longterm, it can result in changes to the central nervous system which may lead to a chronic pain syndrome.

Acupuncture points can stimulate an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect, regulate emotions, and promote the body’s innate ability to find balance.
