Melissa Bieganowski

Melissa has been a Registered Massage Therapist for more than 3 years. Her journey began in 2018 when she herself was relieved from years of chronic headaches by an RMT. Realizing she could help others suffering from pain and stress, she decided to make the career change into massage therapy. She has a passion for learning different Modalities and using those newfound skills to help her clients. Of all the courses taken, her favourite by far, has been Thai Reflexology.
