Rooted Tree started as the quiet massage practice of Sheila MacLean in 2013. Now rooted at 407 Black Street, this small operation is branching out.
We are a team of multidisciplinary professionals dedicated to your wellbeing. We currently specialize in Registered Massage Therapy, Bodywork, Aromatherapy, and Yoga (online classes and private sessions).

I have long been interested in health and wellness and after spending more than a decade working in health care, I’ve decided to shift my focus. I’m currently completing my massage therapy diploma and am excited to graduate and continue working in the Yukon. My style can be described as intuitive, and I listen and treat each client as an individual. I believe in the benefits of relaxing the body and mind, and with all the stress in the world today, there’s no better place to do that than on a massage table.
My name is Amanda, I have always held a respect and passion for the holistic healing of the body through massage. I am a strong believer in the “vis medicatrix naturae”, the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Through massage and bodywork I will help to support you as you connect with your body’s needs, allowing you the space to rest and repair. It is an honour for me to be an intuitive and responsible bodyworker who engages and collaborates with clients to meet their specific needs. I have great respect for all people and walks of life and strive to practice in a way that fosters that environment. I use a combination of swedish, cranial sacral therapy, deep tissue, neuromuscular, myofascial and Reiki, to facilitate your ability to heal yourself.
Registered Massage Therapist Paida does Direct Billing!
I am a fulltime Registered Massage Therapist who has been practicing in Fort McMurray AB and in good standing with the Natural Health Practitioners of Canada, who graduated from Alberta College of Massage Therapy as a Spa and Therapeutic Practitioner.
I have always had a passion for helping others and I am an experienced and compassionate massage therapist who helps clients achieve balance and relieve pain and tension and live lives to the fullest through Swedish and non Swedish techniques. Since graduating I have taken additional courses to benefit clients such as Advanced Treatment of Cervical Spine, Cupping and Hotstone massage therapy.
I am committed to providing personalized care to each client, tailoring my treatments to address specific concerns and promote healing and relaxation.
Bodyworker Meighan will be back in December!
Connection is at the heart of Bodywork and Massage. “What does it feel like?” This is a sentence that drives almost every decision I make - personally and professionally. A profound understanding that our thoughts, emotions, and experiences can store themselves within the physical body is a beautiful reminder that everything is connected. This understanding has given me the capacity to hold space for every person and their own set of needs. I use a combination of Swedish, deep tissue, joint release, myofascial release, and breathwork to help guide you towards healing yourself. Our body, mind, and soul speak to us in so many ways - we just have to listen.
Registered Massage Therapist
Corinne has been providing relaxation massage with therapeutic techniques since 2007, and completed an Advanced Massage Therapy diploma in 2018.
She uses myofascial release, trigger point therapy and stretching in combination with Swedish relaxation massage techniques.

offered by Sheila and Meighan Smooth stones are heated and lubricated with oil or essential oils. The therapeutic effects of heat are used to relax muscles more deeply. Used as an extension of the therapist's hands, the stones induce deep relaxation and provide a unique experience many find to be tremendously calming and centering.
with Sheila Ever just wish someone would step on your back? Shiatsu uses natural body weight to reach deeply into knots and tight muscles to create long- lasting relief. Its un-invasive, clothes-on techniques makes this a great choice for your first massage, and it’s an all-time favourite for seasoned spa-goers.
with Sheila An Ayurvedic massage that focuses on everything from the upper back, to the face and scalp. It has an incredible list of benefits, including relieving headaches, releasing upper body tension, easing anxiety and reducing insomnia.

A Heartfelt Goodbye to Laura Bailey
June 9, 1997 – October 11, 2023
It is with heavy hearts that we remember Laura Bailey, who had joined us so recently.
Laura had an extraordinary gift to welcome ease with her very presence. She created space that gave those around her permission to relax and become their favourite selves. Her warmth and calm was magnetic, and we will miss her deeply.
We at Rooted Tree wish to extend our deepest condolences to Laura's family and friends during this time of profound sadness.
Though her time with us was brief, Laura has left an indelible mark on our hearts. Her impact will be cherished forever.
May she rest in peace.
