Shawna is currently on maternity leave and will keep us posted regarding the babies & her eventual return to work.
Shawna DeTaeye grew up in Port Alberni and has had a passion for helping others since a very young age. She moved to Victoria in 2012 to pursue this passion and a longstanding dream of becoming a Registered Massage Therapist. She graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in the spring of 2014 and during her time spent here she has fallen in love with the beautiful city of Victoria and is very proud to now call it home.
Before pursuing her career in massage therapy, Shawna worked in the restaurant industry and as a dental receptionist for nearly 10 years. Her extensive background in the health care field and customer service has armed her with exceptional professionalism. This, combined with her empathetic and compassionate nature, greatly contribute to her qualification as an outstanding Massage Therapist.
Shawna has been drawn toward the massage therapy profession because of its one on one approach, as a way of helping people to achieve wellness and create balance in their lives. During her treatments, Shawna likes to combine different therapeutic techniques, such as trigger point release, deep tissue massage, relaxation and stress reduction and myofascial release. She also uses active modalities, such as PNF stretching, isolytic release and therapeutic exercise to help facilitate her clients to optimal health. She will work individually with each client to build a customized treatment plan to suit any personal needs.
Growing up on Vancouver Island, Shawna enjoys spending much of her time with family and friends outdoors, camping, fishing, skiing, boating on Sproat Lake and spending time at her family’s cabin on the ocean in the Port Alberni inlet.
