I have been a massage therapist for over 20 years, and I graduated from the Massage Therapy College of Manitoba. I have worked in a variety of locations throughout my career, from top spas to chiropractic offices and small business yoga studios.

My goal is to provide an outstanding massage for my clients and I am able to incorporate Swedish techniques, stretching, trigger point work and all other facets of massage therapy.

I graduated from Wellington College in 2023. I was drawn to the one on one setting massage therapy offers. I hope to create a comfortable environment where each client can connect to their body. An appointment with me can include specific assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunctions, therapeutic massage, and muscle energy techniques. I will create individualized treatment plans with the intention of helping clients reach their goals and feel better in their bodies. I am currently completing my certification in manual lymphatic drainage and look forward to incorporating this into my treatments.

CAITLIN TRIAS (MATERNITY LEAVE)

I graduated from Wellington College of Remedial Massage Therapies in 2017. I have always had an interest in working within the health care profession as helping people has always been a main focus in my career choice. Massage therapy has numerous effects on our body that improve our overall well-being and quality of life therefore, I believe that anyone can benefit from receiving a massage whether it be therapeutic or relaxation. Having recovered from many injuries myself, assessing and developing a treatment plan for rehabilitation of injuries has become a focus for my approach towards massage therapy.

My studies have led me to develop a higher interest for treating the lower extremity of the body as well as the neck and shoulder. I have also taken additional workshops in hot stone massage, palliative care and fascial integration.

I am thrilled to be part of this incredible team of therapists here at Rave Massage and I look forward to meeting and working with you in the near future!

Erin Kennedy - Rave Massage - Massage - Winnipeg - ManitobaERIN KENNEDY

I graduated from the Evolve College of Massage Therapy in 2018. Originally I attended university before deciding it was not for me. I was interested in a career that allowed me to grow and continue learning. After stumbling upon massage therapy I could not be happier.

This field has allowed me to explore all different aspects of holistic healing. I have taken courses in joint mobility, myofascial, stretching, trigger points, sports and relaxation based massages. I am also certified in cupping and look forward to adding more to my education.

Although capable of performing full body treatments I have personally struggled with upper back and jaw pain. In return, I have learned to work extensively with the upper body. By understanding the toll injury can take on the body, I want to work together to develop a treatment plan best suited for you.

 

JEN HNATISHIN 

I graduated from the Wellington College of Remedial Massage Therapies in 2015. I first became interested in Massage Therapy after working in retail sales and realizing that I had a talent in working with clients and solving their problems.

I started skating at the age of 2 and started competing at the age of 8. Over the years my passion for the sport ignited and I joined the Manitoba Provincial Figure Skating Team. I branched out into partner figure skating by starting pairs. It was exciting with the big lifts, the throw jumps and the speeds that could be achieved on the ice. As I reached this level of skating I started to have my first experience with musculoskeletal pain associated with soft tissue injury. A few years later, I made the switch to ice dance, a cool and smooth performance of the sport that focuses on footwork skill, and eliminated the lifts and jumps that were hurting my body. At 18 years old, with injury and pain still nagging at me, I was forced to resign from competitive figure skating.

I worked as a confectionery chef in the years since my athletic career, a job that I truly loved, until a left shoulder injury forced me to resign. I spent many hours with Doctors and physiotherapists to rehabilitate my shoulder. Through my experiences I have developed a true understanding for the physical and emotional cycle that comes from injury and the way it can affect everyday life. The greatest relief I experienced in my years of treatment was with massage therapy and I am I true believer.

Leah - Rave Massage - Massage - Winnipeg - ManitobaLEAH WIEBE 

I graduated from the Massage Therapy College of Manitoba in June of 2014 at the top of my class. I am passionate about massage and helping clients meet their goals be it relaxation, decreasing pain levels, or increasing of range of motion in any area of the body. I am most passionate about massaging the back, jaw, pelvis/glutes regions and especially the neck due to my personal experience with chronic tension headaches.

After making several career changes over the years, I finally found what I’ve been searching for after studying massage.

Being a massage therapist appeals to me because of my fascination with the body which started with a Psychology major at the UofW, my love of people and being able to help them which was fostered when I did 3 years of home care prior to massage therapy, and my experience with massage playing a major role in coping with chronic headaches.

SAMANTHA OLEDAN 

I have recently graduated with honours from Robertson College in 2021, where I have also worked as a Teaching Assistant for the Massage Therapy program, particularly in Anatomy and Orthopedic Assessment classes. In 2017, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from University of Manitoba, and I have worked as a registered nurse for 3 years prior to shifting to massage therapy.

I was inspired to do massage therapy when I first experienced it at Rave Massage back when I was still a nursing student. I appreciated the relaxed environment, and the one-on-one approach between the therapist and the client. I like spending an uninterrupted hour with each of my clients, so that I am able to address their concerns better by providing individualized treatments. Since my background has always been in health care, I thought that massage therapy is a good career change for me because I will also be treating clients, but in a more soothing environment. It makes me happy whenever I see improvements in my client’s discomfort right after the massage treatment, and it motivates me to keep working hard and improve in this career so I can serve my clients better in the future.

I enjoy providing relaxation massages, and teaching stretching exercises that clients can do at home. I am excited to be a part of Rave Massage’s amazing team of therapists, and I look forward to working with you!
