Leah, originally from Newfoundland, moved to Fort McMurray in 2023. She has been a Registered Massage Therapist for 4 years and her knowledge and passion for her profession continuously grows. Her interest in massage therapy started when her mother was dealing with a lower back injury and had been working with RMTs, chiropractors, and other healthcare providers throughout her recovery. She saw just how much benefit and improvement her mother had from therapies such as these and wanted to able to help others herself. Leah had always be drawn to biology, anatomy, and a career in healthcare.
