Nadine Wagner, RMT

Nadine uses massage (basic & advanced techniques), as well as reflexology to assist clients in their well-being journey.  She is a very patient therapist, slowly working her way into a deep and effective treatment.

She utilizes a unique approach by decreasing the activity along the pathways of the nervous system first, allowing tissues to become more receptive to techniques and reducing the potential of delayed onset muscle soreness.

She works just below the tolerance threshold of pain for each client.
In an effort to better serve clients, Nadine takes continuing education courses each year and has recently trained in cupping therapy.

Kenzie MacLean, Reiki Practitioner

Open minded and grounded in realism.
Kenzie believes that healing is not a “one size fits all” like we are led to believe. We are all beautifully unique, with our own experiences and perspectives. We should celebrate this! Keeping this in mind, each and every one of us will approach our healing journey in our own way. Her healing approach is holistic in nature, offering her open support to you.

She started out as a little kid with a love for collecting rocks and looking at the night sky, always asking “why” questions about absolutely everything and anything she could think of. She continued that passion for knowledge and completed her degree in Biomedical Toxicology and Business. After graduating, she worked in the food and pharmaceutical industries appreciating what those sectors had to offer. Although professionally fulfilled, she felt there was something “missing” in her life. She has always had a desire to genuinely help people.

She hit her version of rock bottom where she was emotionally, spiritually and physically at her worst. She continued asking the “why” questions, but this time about her health and spiritual growth. That’s when she found reiki. WOW. She was forced to focus on her own healing journey and it was the best decision she ever made.

She is now a Usui Reiki Master and would be honoured to use her skills and unique perspective to help you along your healing journey, if that’s what feels right for you.

At this time, she offers reiki services at the Affordable Clinic on Thursday evenings. She is always open to chat with you first to see if you’re a good fit, or to bond over awesome crystals and cool rocks.

Denae Boshart, RMT

Denae offers Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy on our Affordable Days.

Denae is a Registered Massage Therapist, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, and Reiki Practitioner.  She has been in practice since 2006, after graduating from the Massage Therapy Program at Fleming College, in Peterborough.
Denae knew from a very young age that she wanted to spend her life helping people feel good, and Massage Therapy seemed like the obvious path, because who doesn’t love going for a massage?
Once in the career, she discovered all the different paths she could take, and was very drawn to Craniosacral Therapy, and the profound effects it can have on the body, particularly the nervous system. She completed her Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy with Russell Mater, who has been treating and teaching for over 20 years.
Denae lives in Guelph with her husband and two daughters, and loves serving this beautiful community she calls home.
And a bit about CST:
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a non-invasive practice, addressing structures of the spine, head, face, and throughout the body.
This gentle, hands-on technique uses static holds to help relieve tension in tissues, align bony and soft tissue structures, improve blood flow, and encourage healthy flow of cerebrospinal fluid through the head and spine.
It can have a profound effect on the nervous system, resetting it to a restorative state, allowing the body to heal itself.

It is a great treatment for headaches, TMJ dysfunction, post concussion/brain injury care (with clearance from MD), relief of stress and anxiety, and general pain and discomfort.

Denae has been voted a “Top Pick” in the Community Votes Guelph
