Felicia Giesbrecht
REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPIST

she/her/her's

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.
