Natasha Matheson, Registered Massage Therapist

She is skilled in Therapeutic/Relaxation, Pre/Postnatal massage, TMJ, Myofascial Release, Dynamic Cupping, and Trigger Point Therapy.
She is focused on Home care and communication for her clients. Her motto is "what you do off the table is 10x more important than what I can do for you on the table". With that, she always keeps track of tasks given to her clients and will monitor every treatment to see the progression. Then if needed, she will assess and adjust accordingly if required to meet each client's goal. This is where the client connection Natasha builds with each person is essential as she aspires to make each client's therapy appointment personal to their health needs and lifestyle.
Being outside in nature is where you can find Natasha on her off time. She enjoys dancing, going to music festivals, and spinning props like staff, rope darts, and Poi during her spare time. She is a stick and poke tattoo artist and loves making different clothing outfits. Lastly, she is a reptile lover; ask her corn snake Lord Booper Snooticus of the Crook Tail Clan.
