Cassandra King, Owner & RMT
I completed my 2200hr massage therapy schooling at the Wellington College of Remedial Massage Therapy in Winnipeg in 2012. I moved to Calgary in 2013 where I have continued working in the spa industry. I love working with different people in helping them to relax while also relieving any aches or pains they may be experiencing. I perform hot stone, relaxation and deep tissue massages. I’m passionate about and certified in pre and post-natal massage as I love bringing comfort to those during a usually uncomfortable, body-changing time.
When I’m not massaging I love to read, travel and spend time with my wonderful family and friends.
Sarah d’Abadie, Owner & RMT
I graduated from the Massage Therapy program at Mount Royal College in 2005. I practiced for about a year before developing a strange sensitivity/reaction to mass produced lotions and oils, forcing me to take some time off, not being able to touch anything oil based. Once my skin healed itself, I started experimenting with different natural oils and butters, and have finally found a combination that is not only agreeable with my skin, but great for my clients, as all the products are certified organic and natural. I have a passion for essential oils, their healing properties, and incorporate them into my lotions and massage practice.
I enjoy helping people feel better, and have a knack for finding the “knots”. I believe massage is a step to healing and recovery, but at home care is just as important. I like to send my clients home with stretches and exercises.
When I’m not at work, you can find me camping and quadding with my husband and two kids, riding my horses, gardening or hiking in the mountains. An active lifestyle is what makes the engine run smoothly!
