Registered Massage Therapist

How did you start off?: I was originally a physiotherapist in Japan. I came to Canada in 2007 and fell in love with the mountains and lifestyle. I eventually decided to study massage therapy, graduating in 2016, and have been working for Spas of Banff since then.

For Fun: My time off is all for doing activities with my daughter. We do a lot of rock climbing, hiking in summer, skiing downhill/cross-country in winter. Life is great!

“I love to see them coming out of massage rooms with a big smile totally relaxed and happy. That’s the moment I feel I love what I do which is almost everyday!”

How did you start off?: I grew up in British Columbia. What brought me to Banff was the mountains. I went to school and  graduated from Makami College in Calgary.

How did you start off?: I am originally from Lloydminster, Alberta and I knew I wanted to relocate to Banff because of its endless possibilities of outdoor activities and lifestyle choices.

For fun: I enjoy time spent in nature either on the golf course or in the mountains snowboarding.

It was always my passion to be in a career that focused on integrating the health and wellness of both the mind and body connection. It gives me joy to help my clients achieve their personal wellness goals.

What brought you to Banff? Originally I’m from Hungary from a little historical town called Tata. Growing up I always dreamt about the vast untouched nature of Canada.

For fun: I’m very lucky that I can spend my spare time with my young daughter and I also enjoy different outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, skiing and kayaking.

“I also find joy to bring relief, happiness and relaxation to people through massage.”

How did you start off?: I worked as a receptionist in a spa while in high school, where the owner became my mentor. I then attended Gina’s College and graduated in 2005. I have been in Banff for 8 years and at the Meadow Spa since December 2017.

For Fun: When I’m not busy making others feel renewed you can most likely find me out and about being the social butterfly I am.

“I love the aesthetics industry as it is a very positive field of work. I look forward to helping people relax and unwind.”

Tell us about yourself: I am a very smiley person that loves to be around people. This is part of the reason I love travelling so much! You’ll always find me strolling around looking for dogs to pet!

 

I started as a receptionist at a spa. My love for it started there! I just thought it was lovely that we make such an impact on someones day and give them that time for themselves.

“Facials are my passion as one they are so relaxing and underrated (I believe more relaxing than a massage!)  and two I can customise a facial to suit your specific needs and also help you to continue the same level of self care at home.”
