Caring through Healing
I believe in promoting the body’s own natural therapeutic abilities to heal through self-awareness and massage therapy. – Abhi
I am a licensed and registered massage therapist, in good standing with the CMTO. I am also a certified yoga teacher, a member of Yoga Alliance Canada, and a certified Thai massage practitioner.
I take pride in my ability to provide results-driven, quality massage therapy and healing modalities that are suited to varying individual needs. From general to repetitive stress-related issues, occupational or sports injuries, or postural dysfunctions, I am dedicated to providing noticeable therapeutic outcomes to all my clients. Through massage therapy and yoga classes, I encourage clients to be mindful and aware of the changes the body is going through. This awareness entwines yoga and massage therapy as both have a profound impact on the human body.
Through my practice, my goal is to make a deeper connection with my clients by assisting them to set and achieve a higher standard of self-care and promote kindness towards themselves.

About Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is known to improve health, maintains wellness, and prevent illness. It helps to improve circulation, joint mobility, lymphatic drainage, immune system functioning, and decrease muscle tension and spasm. Massage provides an overall sense of well-being by reducing anxiety and depression by releasing endorphins (feel-good hormones), and by decreasing cortisol (a stress-inducing chemical).
Massage therapy can help people of all ages with pain, injury, illness, and stress. It can also prevent some of these problems from occurring or recurring by offering a non-invasive, drug-free, personalized approach to health and wellness, based on the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
About Yoga & Thai Massage
Yoga is a blend of physical postures (asanas), breath-work (pranayama), meditation, and relaxation. It boosts the rest and digest response of the body, providing more energy and mental focus. Various asanas also provide stretching and strengthening and complement Massage Therapy by improving muscle and joint functions.
Thai Massage is also based on Yoga as a healing modality and uses acupressure and assisted yoga postures. Similar to Yoga, Thai massage also supplements Massage Therapy through joint mobilization, increasing blood circulation, lowering cortisol, and promoting overall well-being of the mind and body.
