Welcome to Heartwood - Massage and Wellness! My Canmore massage studio was established out of a passion to help people dealing with stress, anxiety and tension as well as those afflicted with chronic and acute pain.
As a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) and Somatic Movement Coach, I have been practicing the art of multi-modal bodywork since 2001. My massage studio is in the Three Sisters neighborhood of Canmore, Alberta.
My training in both massage therapy and clinical somatics means that I can uniquely work with you to assist in the recovery of musculoskeletal dysfunction and injuries to help you get back to doing the things you love to do.
My approach aims to reduce stress, relieve tension, decrease pain, and increase body awareness. I believe that it is important that you participate in your own well-being.
I love being active and don’t like being in pain. Helping people improve their quality of life, move better and feel more comfortable in their bodies brings me immense gratification!
Looking forward to meeting you,
I am committed to the safety and wellness of my clients. Prior to your appointment, I ask that you review my COVID-19 safety protocols and recommendations.
Are you looking for a relaxing massage, treatment for an illness or injury, or a dedicated wellness plan? A massage can be an effective way to unwind and de-stress, relieve areas of tension and bring about a sense of deep relaxation.

I would recommend Brenda to anyone, needing to de-stress. Very professional. It was my first massage so I felt a little awkward at first but she knew how to make me feel at ease. Thank you Brenda! Barbara B., Canmore
Brenda Is an incredibly talented massage therapist and our favourite practitioner in the Bow Valley. She is diversely skilled, knowledgable and intuitive. Brenda also has a gentle, kind and nurturing spirit. Her expertise in somatics is a wonderful adjunct to massage treatments. Brenda is able to meet the needs of our entire family, including our little one. We are so grateful for Brenda and how she supports the health and wellbeing of our family.
I had a brilliant massage with Brenda today! She's amazing at what she does! Looking forward to my next massage. Lucy W., Canmore
Wow my hips are so much happier since you helped release my hip flexors. Nordic skiing is once again enjoyable. Julie A. , Banff
Brenda is an amazing intuitive therapist. She is passionate sharing her knowledge with her clients. I felt very comfortable with Brenda and I was able to let go of emotional and physical pain. Somatic therapy does wonders when practiced on a regular basis. I recommend somatic therapy to anyone who is ready to let go. Aren't we all ready to have a healthier, happier life?

My back pain has been alleviated by practicing somatics in bed daily for 5 minutes. Allan T., Canmore
