It's a gift to be able to do this work and to share my story with you
HI! I'm Lianne and I'm a Certified Wellness Massage Practitioner (non-RMT) and Founder of Active Flow Massage, a service that is all about helping women learn to love themselves, their bodies, and live their best lives possible. I've been passionate about this work ever since I discovered for myself the power that massage has to transform a life.
For many years I struggled with depression that was fuelled by many things, chief among them: crippling self-doubt, a really negative view of myself, and poor personal boundaries. As in, I didn't have any. As in, I let everyone walk all over me because I was so desperate for approval.
This went on for years until, guided by a force beyond myself, I found myself enrolled in massage school. Previous to this, I had recently graduated from a top-notch art school where I suffered through 5 years of an unsatisfactory educational experience, only to land a minimum wage job working at a kids toy store. I was slowly dying on the inside, and the call I felt to change my situation was easy to make.
Fast-forward to five years later, and I can honestly say that the decision to go to massage school saved my life.
I lost almost 40 lbs and have kept it off for the last five years now. Getting in touch with joy, with a wild love for life, means that I move my body more, which in turn means that I'm able to keep my body at a healthy weight, without any fad diets or crazy exercise.
I am no longer chronically depressed. Yeah, my mood fluctuates, but in normal, healthy ways, and I'm much more capable of handling my emotions than ever before.
I developed a connection to the spiritual side of myself, which fills my life with purpose, joy, and love.
Body, Mind, and Spirit, my life has radically improved because of my connection with massage. And now I want to share it with you!
If you've ever gone to a spa, then you're probably familiar with Swedish massage, which uses flowing strokes to promote a state of relaxation. If you've ever gone to an RMT, then you're probably familiar with Deep Tissue massage which targets the myofascia layer to release knots and tension. My massage style is a unique blend of both Swedish and Deep Tissue massage, so you get the best of both worlds.
I use my knowledge and intuition to guide the body back into anatomical and energetic alignment, helping you to release:
physical holding patterns that may be draining you
emotional & energetic blocks that keeping you from living your best life possible
limiting beliefs about yourself that are no longer serving you
What you gain?
a deeper connection to yourself & others
a sense of peace within your mind
a more beautiful, radiant you; the you that you truly are!
