OUR THERAPISTS

Jennifer Lloyd, Registered Massage Therapist /Owner
 

My career in massage therapy began in 2004 after graduating with honours from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy. Having come from a mixed background in photography and administrative work I knew I had found my passion in massage therapy. Listening to my clients’ health concerns and helping realize their wellness goals was something that came very natural to me.

Since becoming an RMT I have worked in numerous clinics with chiropractors and naturopaths as well as backstage with musicians, dancers and wrestlers. In 2011 I opened RMT studio to create an atmosphere and design a space that matches my passion for helping people feel better.

Over the last couple of years I have been blessed to see the studio grow and to have a team of talented and passionate therapists work along side me to help clients achieve the best in health and wellness. I love my community and am excited for many more years ahead.

 

HOURS AVAILABLE - MONDAY/TUESDAY 12-6 WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY 9-2, OCCASIONAL FRIDAY 9:00 - 2:00

Alyssa Jelecanin, Registered Massage Therapist

Alyssa is a Registered Massage Therapist in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario and has been practicing in Toronto since graduating from Sutherland Chan School of Massage Therapy in 2019. Alyssa grounds her therapy in her belief that a safe and effective treatment requires a comprehensive understanding of each client’s specific wellness goals. To put this belief in practice, Alyssa uses a bio-psycho-social framework which fosters a deeper understanding of each individual’s unique needs. 

 

Alyssa is always striving to expand her knowledge of the human body and to learn and employ new and diverse techniques and modalities. She works to engage with the nervous system and musculoskeletal system using various tools such as Swedish Massage, Myo-Fascial Release, Lymphatic Drainage, Neuromuscular techniques and Diaphragmatic Breathing. Alyssa believes that a client’s comfort is essential to calming the nervous system, which allows for the relaxation of both mind and body towards holistic wellness. 

 

Personally, Alyssa works to practice mindfulness and body awareness which she also works to foster collaboratively with each of her clients. She values self-care practices and considers each client’s goals and preferences when recommending self-care; often turning to hydrotherapy, gentle stretching, and functional strengthening as self-affirming wellness tools. Alyssa has worked with a wide range of conditions and impairments and has a clinical interest in mental health, persistent pain, and lymphatic drainage.
