Shannon Abbott, Certified Holistic Massage, Certified Aromatherapist
Shannon Abbott first experienced the benefits of massage in 2000 when she required treatment during her days as a forestry firefighter. Long hours hiking through forests carrying several pounds on her back led her to the healing world of bodywork. A further career in the film industry as a camera assistant brought her back to the healing arts once again, trying new holistic approaches to achieve a healthier mind and body. This is where Shannon found her love and life calling for the holistic world of health. This is also where Shannon discovered the power of energy healing and so began her journey into the Holistic Field.
Shannon is a graduate of the Langara Holistic Massage and Spa Therapy program where she was introduced to and immersed in the world of healing arts over the past year. Shannon has been trained in a number of modalities from Deep tissue Swedish massage to the powerful modality of healing touch. Her studies also included Thai massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Ayurvedic healing, and energy healing.
Shannon believes in creating a customized treatment for each individual drawing on many modalities to create the personal approach to healing. She integrates energy work into each session as she believes energy blockage is the source of many ailments within the body, and so creating a flawless flow within the body leads to improvement in your well being.
She believes we all have the ability to heal ourselves through both intention and focus and she looks forward to meeting you and working with you on the path to wellness.
