Therapists

Each of our therapists have their particular strengths. If you have specific needs or requests, such as deep tissue or gentler touch, or require direct billing for a specific insurance company, please phone us so we can ensure we give you the experience you want.

All of our therapists are registered massage therapists (RMTs), which means they’ve completed a minimum of 1000 hours of practicum training along with accredited education. As RMTs, our therapists are covered by many insurance companies and we are happy to provide direct billing for most insurance companies.

Rebecca Davidson

Specializations

  • Relaxation and Therapeutic Massage

  • Craniosacral Massage

If you want a relaxing gentle massage, then Rebecca is the therapist for you. Rebecca graduated from 1000-hour program through Sprott Shaw Community College in 2006. She is registered with the Natural Health Practitioners of Canada. She is certified to provide relaxation and hot-stone massage.

Rebecca specializes in craniosacral therapy and lymph drainage. Craniosacral therapy is a gentle hands on therapy which releases tension deep in the body. A therapist uses not more than five grams of pressure, about the weight of a nickel. The therapist uses a soft touch to release restrictions in soft tissue that surround the central nervous system. Lymph drainage therapy is beneficial for stagnant fluids, detoxifying, regenerating tissues, and filtering out toxins.

Rebecca is married with two adult children. She enjoys reading and swimming. She has always enjoyed helping people with the art of massage.

He is certified to provide relaxation and therapeutic massage. Drue is a friendly, caring and gentle person, who loves the feeling he gets from helping other people.

 Even though Drue has held a long time interest in massage therapy, it wasn’t until recently that he began his journey to become a healer.  As soon as he made the decision, everything started falling into place, as though it were meant to be. 

Drue is increasingly fascinated by the human body and how it works to maintain homeostasis. He is excited to learn even more about the human body and the different methods and modalities that he can use to help others achieve that homeostatic balance in body, mind and soul.

After already having the opportunity to work with the amazing staff at Massage Above All during his school practicum, Drue is very excited to continue on his own personal journey of growth and awareness as a massage therapist. Drue looks forward to you being a part of that journey with him, by allowing him to help you feel better.
