|Amy Maystruck, |
|Amy graduated with honors in 2019. She provides therapeutic massage for overall health and well-being and specializes in pre/post-Natal massage.
Amy’s journey into massage began when she had a different career, was incredibly unhappy and always knew she needed to make a big change. Her real passion was always helping people and animals. She then decided to go back to school, drop the corporate career and challenge herself to start over. It was the best decision she has ever made; massage therapy became a way for her to use her skills and passion to care for people and focus on health and wellness.
Amy loves her career and is grateful to be a part of improving the physical and mental health, and wellness of so many people in her community, from children to seniors.
Her other passions are in gardening and animals - she supports various dog rescues locally and has 2 rescue dogs from Mexico.

|Leanne Armstrong, RMT||Leanne (she/they) graduated in 2015. She loves helping her clients have a better quality of life with less stress and discomfort. “Pain and discomfort are whispers from the body to pay attention”. With her slow intentional and focused treatments, Leanne helps you unravel those whispers, developing your body awareness and innate healing potential.
Her personal journey, years of practice and advance training have led her to specialize in Oncology Massage, Myofascial Release and Lymphatic Massage. She has a natural gift for working with seniors, immune-compromised, pre/post-surgery clients, and marginalized communities.
Leanne first got into massage because she wanted to offer positive touch to people, especially seniors, who don't receive as much as they need and to help people to be proactive in their own wellness.
Beyond massage, Leanne likes to spend time with her family, friends, and her dog, while hiking in the mountains, enjoying live music, or just hanging out at home. One of her favourite places to be is in the mountains by the water. A couple of organizations that are close to her heart are Skipping Stone Foundation and AARCS.
