Sheila MacLean

Owner, Registered Massage Therapist, Yoga Guide, Aromatherapist

Massage and yoga have been powerful methods for growth and connection in my life, I very sincerely love what I do, and would love the opportunity to share it with you.

Massage has been a great passion of mine since I stumbled into the practice headfirst in 2009. I knew it checked the boxes: Something in to encourage and bolster others, that kept me moving, something that let me be creative.

Sharing yoga was the missing puzzle piece: bringing strength and stability (and therefore longevity) to those I was seeing in my massage practice. My yoga classes, private and public, are not the fancy, twisty postures you might see in magazines, but a method of self-inquiry and thoughtful movement aimed at awakening individuals to their own possibilities.

In massage I offer:

Swedish, Deep Tissue, Indian Head Massage, Joint Release, Deep Flow, Shiatsu, Thai, Reflexology, Hot Stone, Hydrotherapy, Prenatal Massage, Myofascial Cupping, and Aromatherapy.​

In yoga: Hatha, Stråla, Movement Therapy, Restorative, Anusara, Acroyoga, Kundalini.
