Our Team

 


JANELLE

SERVICES OFFERED: Reflexology, Essential Oil Massage, Gua Sha, Cupping, Facial Reflexology

Janelle began practicing massage and acupuncture when a serious injury forced her to reevaluate her path in life. She taught yoga and studied various massage modalities in her home country of Australia before moving to Canada in 2015. Janelle continued to study both acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in Vancouver before moving to Victoria in 2017. Janelle considers it an immense privilege to work with older, more traditional models of the human body and their paradigms of health and illness. She believes that touch is incredibly powerful and cannot be underestimated as a tool for balance and integration. An avid reader, when Janelle isn’t with us you can find her in a quiet, sunny place with her nose in a book. She loves green tea and dark chocolate.
