Sindi Cranley, Registered Massage Therapist

I graduated from Eastern College Halifax completing the 2 year massage therapy program. Being the last generation of the Baby Boomer population, personal pain management became more important to me. I’ve always had a connection to the older generation, growing up in a small community. Many in this generation believe, muscle aches and pain, was just a part of growing old. To just push thru the muscle aches and pain. I realized when I first experienced massage, that this was not the case. Massage, has in the last 2 years, helped me personally deal with my own muscular and joint pain. Todays Baby Boomers and aging seniors are of a much younger mind set and choose to stay healthy and more active. Sometimes our muscle doesn’t agree with our choice of activity to stay fit. I believe our pain can be managed through massage therapy, maintenance and educating our clients with home-care.

I am trained in general Swedish Massage, Myofascial trigger Point therapy, MLD, Deep Tissue, Relaxation massage, Therapeutic massage and Hydrotherapy.

Condition I have treated:

  • M.S.
  • Whiplash
  • Hyperkyphosis/Lordosis
  • Frozen shoulder/Rotator cuff injury
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • TMJ
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis

I enjoy woodworking, Christmas crafts, love animals, especially my 3 cats, love to give my senior cat massages help with his achy muscles/joints. I enjoy taking Sunday drives along the coast line and winding roads, looking for flee market, yard sales and meeting interesting new people. I believe in seeing the best in everyone.

I look forward to seeing you in clinic!

Erynn Leslie, Registered Massage Therapist

Hi there, my name is Erynn. I am from Dartmouth and I am a member of MTANS. I graduated from Massage Therapy at ICT Northumberland College. Upon graduating, I was awarded the Massage Therapy Association of Nova Scotia Award of Excellence.

During my studies, I had the opportunity to take on a sports elective. The elective allowed me to explore the depths of pre-game and post-game massages for athletes on the Halifax Thunderbirds, Hurricanes, and Moosehead teams. I have also volunteered at local nursing homes in Halifax, providing massages for residents and staff.

I believe that a hands approach does help heal. I dedicate a lot of my time listening to my clients so that I can form effective treatment plans focusing on a variety of fascial, general Swedish, and Thai techniques while providing a safe and relaxing experience.

Susan Allaby, Registered Massage Therapist

Greetings! I’m Susan. I graduated from Foothills College of Massage Therapy in Calgary AB, in 2001 and have been a full-time Registered Massage Therapist ever since. I have been a member in good standing with the NHPC since 2000. I have 20+ years of experience treating a wide variety of conditions in both clinical and spa environments. I take the time to listen to my client’s concerns so I can tailor their treatment specifically to their condition(s), whether that be a musculoskeletal issue, an hour of relaxation so they can leave the cares of the world behind, or something in between. I am honoured my clients allow me to be a part of their healing journey, whatever that may be. I specialize in upper body treatments of the neck and jaw and in CranioSacral Therapy (CST). Please see the list below for the modalities I perform. I am currently enrolled in a Counselling Diploma program with the hope of someday combining CST with counseling for a total body and mind approach to healing.
