Theressa McKay, RMT CHN NNCP (2200 hour program) – Owner of Red Deer Massage & Wellness
‘Kneading’ you to feel better!’ Is the motto I came up with over 15 years ago–and still going strong! My name is Theressa McKay and I have been a Registered Massage Therapist since 2006 (2200 hour Diploma) and have been massaging since 2003 in a spa in Harrison Hot Springs, BC. Since then I have taken various continuing education courses including Advanced Techniques for Lowback/Hip, Neck/Shoulder, as well as Cupping Therapy which is an amazingly effective treatment for pain, stress, and immunity. There are countless benefits to massage, and more and more people are recognizing that; even employers! One of the most important is the feeling of well-being and relief from discomfort, pain and stress! There are many studies proving how massage is of benefit to your overall health.
My latest addition to my services is Nutritional Guidance Counselling. I am now registered with CANNP (Canadian Association of Natural Nutritional Practitioners.
My main objective is to work with my clients who need direction and support in changing their eating and lifestyle habits. I believe in small changes and steps that are consistent for lasting change.
I also will soon be adding genetic nutritional testing to determine what foods may or may not be good for your overall genetic make-up. The testing is done through a Canadian Company called Nutrigenomix.
Food Sensitivity Testing is another offering I have to determine different foods that are affecting your body/system.
