In-House Health Professionals

Often times treatment by a health care professional will fix the issue for a short period of time. We believe in getting to the root of the problem and fixing it permanently. Canuck has set-up a team of health care professionals with this in mind.

Registered Massage Therapy - Kristin Ward 


Kristin spent years playing competitive and social sports, including softball, tennis, and even triathlons. She turned to massage therapy later in her career when she realized she wanted to "do something she loved." Introduced to the Canuck family just a few years ago as an athlete, she now gets to do what she loves at a place full of great people! Kristin's main focus is to help client's maintain a healthy lifestyle and treat mobility issues that come with any workout regime. Her approach to massage therapy is through the combination of relaxation and science. Both components are imperative in order to improve the body's function and a person's overall well-being. Promoting patient education in order for them to reach their ultimate goals and maintain long-term results is key to Kristin.

Kristin is a Registered Massage Therapist, Certified Fasical Stretch Therapist (Level 1), Doula/Labour Support Worker, and a Member of the Registered Massage Therapist Association of Ontario (RMTAO), Certified in Cupping Therapy
