Registered Massage Therapists
Jesica (Jes) Munster
Jesica graduated from Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic eight years ago. She is passionate about helping people relax as well as decreasing pain through manual therapy. She believes that relaxation plays a key role in the normal functions of our body, that are sometimes interfered by stress. In conjunction with the more traditional relaxation massage Jesica utilizes techniques such as myofascial releases, trigger point treatment, joint mobilization, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Thai massage, hot stone massage and Acupuncture. Jesica believes that the combination of manual therapy, exercise, and pain education can do a great deal to diminish pain.
As an RMT, Jesica has experience providing pre and postnatal care, treating clients with cancer, multiple sclerosis, sports injuries and general pain and discomfort. Jesica considers herself a very malleable therapist. She is able to adapt to the individual needs of each client, from a relaxing, soothing, rhythmic massage to a more specific deep tissue treatment.
Elizabeth (Liz) DaCosta
Elizabeth graduated from Trillium College’s Massage Therapy program in 2012. She is passionate about helping people to heal themselves through the power of touch and believes that massage therapy plays an integral role in the maintenance of health—body, mind and soul—as well as the prevention of many musculoskeletal ailments.
Specializing in a variety of Swedish and deep tissue techniques, she is also experienced in prenatal, hot stone and Thai massage. Having worked in clinical and spa environments, she incorporates a relaxing and therapeutic element to all treatments.

Celina graduated Valedictorian from Sutherland-Chan School & Teaching Clinic in 2014. She is trained in a variety of techniques including Swedish Massage, Fascial Release, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi and Relaxation Massage.
Celina is a firm believer that clients often experience the nurturing touch of massage as a way to reconnect with their bodies and take a break from the mental chatter which can often accompany common every day stress. She also recognizes that massage treatments promote a better quality of sleep which is vital for restoring important chemical balances in the brain. The notion of a “relaxation massage” carries more weight than one might imagine.
Celina brings a creative spirit to her work! She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts from the University of South Florida and as a vocalist and musician is the recipient of Music Africa’s Female Performer of the Year award and has toured every major folk festival across Canada.

She tries to follow her own advice by keeping active through running, kayaking, hiking, & dance (freestyle and salsa). She also unwinds through yoga, copious stretching, nature walks, and of course receiving massage.

A graduate from Sutherland-Chan Massage School & Teaching Clinic, Sarah has a passion for intentional touch that grew organically from massaging friends and family throughout her life. She realized, however, that “magic hands” can bring more than a soft smile and a sigh of relief: those hands can bring real therapy to those of us who live with pain.
Honing her gifts at Sutherland-Chan she became comfortable and proficient at a variety of techniques including mysofascial release, trigger point work, hot stone massage and deep relaxation work. Gaining experience working with people who had all manner of different needs with one common goal: to feel better. Whether that means moving more comfortably, working with less effort, learning painful patterns and how to avoid them, finding relief from chronic pain, dealing with emotional turmoil, relieving the stress that piles on… Sarah knows that massage can help. She feels fortunate to have found this path with healing hands to guide her and is happy to be able to share it with others.
