Haley’s father is a Remedial Massage Therapist and she always admired how he was able to help people dealing with acute or chronic pain.  People who could barely walk through the door before treatment were able to walk out & stand up straight.  He has been a huge inspiration to Haley wanting to help people lead a pain-free life.  

Haley has a passion for learning which has seen her complete an array of courses and training to equip her to be a multi-skilled therapist.  When appropriate Haley incorporates cupping into her myotherapy treatments. She also offers Hot Stone massage.

“My hope for all clients is that I can help them live a pain-free lifestyle through my treatment plans and give them the tools to help themselves at home.  Ideally, I’d love clients to be coming in for a maintenance treatment rather than because they are in pain.”

Haley believes “When you are living the best version of yourself, you inspire others to live the best versions of themselves”.  She takes this wisdom into her sessions as she helps her clients to be the best version of themselves.
