Christopher Stuart, RMT, R.AC

Co-Owner

Christopher became a registered massage therapist in 2010 and before that has explored courses at Wilfred Laurier University for religion, culture, and philosophy and psychology. Christopher believes health is a dynamic process; you can't just rely on one area of health to be healthy. He believes a persons overall health can only be accomplished through a combination of good nutrition, exercise, a good nights sleep, and, what Carl Jung called, "individuation" or knowing your self fully, which Chris is seeking to achieve through mindful meditation.

 

Christopher's massage treatments differ from others in that he offers a variety of modalities that he can incorporate to each clients personalized treatment plan such as hot stones, contemporary acupuncture, ulrasound therapy, and MPS work.

Registered BioEnergetics Practitioner

Meghan is passionate about educating individuals on the power of living holistically. Through healthy nutrition and lifestyle recommendations she will customize a wellness plan to support your journey to good health. In addition to nutritional support, Meghan also offers BioEnergetic Balancing. BioEnergetics (BIE), is a non- invasive technology that serves to identify specific stressors that the body cannot recognize and therefore aggravates the body. The GSR-120 modality is used to help normalize your body to the stressors, thus alleviating the body of symptoms.

 

A competitive athlete from a young age, she developed a love of nutrition early on to get an edge on her competition. As a high-level athlete she developed an ideal roadmap to support cognitive function through food and supplementation.

 

She has a special interest in supporting clients through their weight loss journey by addressing gut health, balancing blood sugar levels, hormones and encouraging healthier lifestyle choices. She also has experience with sports nutrition and pre and perinatal nutrition.

 

Her philosophy is: “if you don’t make time for your wellness now, you will have to make time for your illness later.”
