About Blue Nile
Blue Nile Massage & Wellness started as a vision to create the deepest wellness experience using a holistic approach. That is what makes this experience so unique - all of the add-ons are complimentary! My goal is to encourage self care by helping you achieve and maintain optimal health. I cater to people who want to learn more about alternative heath options and are seeking high quality treatments. Through education and clinical practice, I aim to empower people to take control of their health.
I offer effective, individualized treatments that enrich the mind, body and spirit. Through a variety of massage and therapeutic techniques, I work to address the person as a whole and encourage the body's natural healing ability. Whether you are experiencing pain or simply want to improve your physical and mental wellbeing, Blue Nile Massage & Wellness provides a healing and inclusive environment to do so.
I have been working in the health and human service field since 2013. My passion for health and self-care has allowed me to further expand my knowledge in alternative health. My journey as a Registered Massage Therapist began in 2018 when I graduated from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Along with studying anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology and more, I also participated in various clinics including prenatal, arthritis, sports and neurological conditions. This experience allowed me to dive deeper into my love and understanding of water and it's healing benefits, also known as hydrotherapy. From hot springs in my homeland, Ethiopia - to ice baths in Montreal - to floating in the Mediterranean Sea, I have been able to explore hydrotherapy on a deep level and wanted to share that experience with you. For me, the learning never stops. I have taken additional courses in energy work, hot stones, cupping therapy, Indian and Thai style massage, birth support and business. Through community volunteering, I have been able to make massage therapy more accessible to our communities and encourage self care in people from all walks of life.
Healing and self care are my daily practice. I believe we need to be well on the inside in order to do well on the outside. Taking time for yourself is crucial when it comes to your health and well being. By integrating mind, body and spirit, I strive to promote awareness of the interdependency of all these aspects when it comes to achieving optimal wellness. I am aware of how constant demands on our bodies can leave us feeling drained, overwhelmed and out of touch. Quieting our minds, nourishing our bodies and pouring into our souls allows us to reset and face the world with clarity. At Blue Nile Massage & Wellness, I use my extensive training, experience and in-depth understanding of the human body to teach and cultivate awareness of one's own health and wellness journey.
Let me help you get there.
