I was born in Colombia, and moved to Canada 12 years ago, I’m still trying to get used to the winters.

My passion for helping others with my hands through touch started when I was 6, when my mom introduced me to Reiki. From then on, I became very curious about different pain and rehab therapy modalities, massage therapy specifically.

Now, with a 3000 hour Massage Therapy Diploma from Makami College, and over 2 years of experience educating other therapists, my passion for helping clients, be and feel better, has deepened.

I believe in the restorative potential of the human mind, body and spirit in response to massage and combine; Swedish, therapeutic, and myofascial techniques with stretching and strengthening exercises to restore overall well-being. I have experience working with TMJ dysfunction, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Whiplash, Tension Headaches, Postural Dysfunctions, Sports Injuries and other chronic injuries.

I enjoy cooking, hiking, being outdoors and learning how I can be a better human to the world.  Below are two of my favourite quotes from one of my recent reads:

“So, listen, to yourself and to those with whom you are speaking. Your wisdom then consists not of the knowledge you already have, but the continual search for knowledge, which is the highest form of wisdom.”

Sergio performs deep tissue, children, myofascial release, sports therapy, cupping and relaxation massage, click the link below for more information.

Hola! I was born in Mexico and moved to this beautiful country 14 years ago.

My wellness journey started first as a hip hop dancer/teacher while simultaneously working as an esthetician. Both are physically demanding and if not being proactive, stress accumulates. When I was younger I had very little awareness about my body’s needs and later in my dance career I got injured. During that time I became a patient at Glow and through massage therapy, chiropractic adjustments and reflexology I have had great personal discoveries and healing. I believe the body has amazing ways to heal itself, but it needs a little assistance to get there.

I am a 2200 hour graduate from the Alberta College of Massage Therapy.I have experience with Swedish, deep tissue, children and myofascial release. I am currently studying Thai massage, soon to start my dynamic cupping certification and Visceral manipulation level 1.

In my spare time, I love dancing, I make ponchos and everything else my hands can get a hold of to create, I enjoy cooking, spending time with my husband, family and friends.

I am Katelyn!

I have been practicing massage therapy in a multidisciplinary setting since 2019. I am originally from Calgary and spent my summers and many weekends in the Columbia Valley in the East Kootenays. I moved out to Kelowna BC in 2011 to attend UBCO where I completed my Bachelor of Human Kinetics Degree. I then enrolled in RMT school at the Vancouver Career College, graduating with a 3000 hour Registered Massage Therapy Diploma. I successfully completed the College of Massage Therapists of BC board exams and have been practicing ever since in Kelowna and now Calgary. I am also an active member of the Massage Therapists Association of Alberta.

Another fun fact, I am also a group fitness instructor! My favorite is teaching spin, but I have also taught various other class styles such as bootcamp, strength, and mobility/pilates. If you have any questions about any stretches/exercises I would be happy to help you out! 

I enjoy helping and educating every type of person about the importance of self-care and maintaining a balanced, healthy, active lifestyle. I believe everyone deserves to live an active and adventurous life without stress and pain!

In my spare time you can find me hiking, snowshoeing and paddle boarding with my rescue dog Teddy, skiing, in a spin class, and checking out some local breweries!

Alanna Blackburn, RMT

After studying and teaching massage therapy, yoga and reiki, I am so grateful I can contribute to the healing journey of others. I often think about my mom and the practitioners that had changed not only her life but the lives of our whole family while she was dealing with rheumatoid arthritis and hope to do the same for each of my clients.

I use assessment to determine the best treatment plan to optimize health and well-being.

Then, with rhythmic strokes and precise muscle palpation I work to increase range of motion, relax tense muscles, increase circulation and create a comforting and relaxing space.

Alanna performs deep tissue, myofascial release, sports therapy, relaxation, children, cupping and prenatal massage.

After trying my hand working in various sales and office positions I realized I wanted a profession centered around being in service to others by helping people heal. I found my way into a massage therapist after a painful shoulder injury. Almost immediately I knew becoming a massage therapist was going to be my path. I was and still am fascinated by the human body and how it functions. Now with over 17 years of experience I find myself very grateful to be in a profession that is more rewarding than I could have ever expected.

One of my top priorities is making sure my client feels empowered. I love collaborating with my client to help them work through what they need to deal with pain or dysfunction. I also recognize we all come with a history affecting the body and mind. Massage has an amazing capacity to access and release both pain and stress. Over the years I’ve learned when offering deep massage that its amazing how deep and effective slower, gradual increases in pressure can be in creating release without causing a great deal of pain. There is a great deal of satisfaction being a part of a persons journey toward a healthy balanced life.

I enjoy hiking, doodling, reading books about massage, health and spiritual growth. Recently I’ve tried my hand a watercolour painting and love the process of letting go of the end result. Instead, immersing myself in the process.

Janet performs deep tissue, cupping, oncology, prenatal, TMJ (jaw pain), senior and relaxation massage.
