Shauna has a diverse background in the performing arts. She has danced professionally as a contemporary dance artist, choreographed and performed across Canada and abroad. She has taught at SFU for their contemporary dance program as well as led Yoga classes privately for individuals and for larger groups at various yoga studios in Vancouver.
After the birth of her two children, balancing work and family life became an endurance test. She deepened her inner journey into yoga, meditation and nutrition to heal mind, body and spirit. Many years, professional designations, silent retreats and mind-body studies later, she found her calling in the field of health and wellness.
As a dedicated student of life with a curiosity that never quits, she broadened her understanding of the intricate workings of the body by completing her studies at the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy and became a Registered Massage Therapist.
Her own journey to health informs and guides her practice. As an empathetic practitioner, Shauna works with patients to create a personalized and sustainable treatment plan that focuses on addressing the specific needs of each individual patient to assist them to achieve their long or short-term goals. This includes comprehensive patient education and tailored home care.
Drawing on her professional dance and yoga certifications she enjoys using a variety of techniques to attain desired outcomes and goals. These modalities include Swedish massage, myofascial release, joint manipulation, progressive relaxation and trigger point release.
Shauna has a deep and committed meditation practice and continues to teach mindful meditation and yoga. She also dances as much as time permits and considers the forest her home away from home.
She looks forward to meeting you and to helping you navigate your own unique health journey.
