registered massage therapists

Stacey Naeth, RMT

I was born and raised in Kitimat. I was active as a child and teen, playing almost every sport available to me. In high school I focused on basketball and volleyball mostly. It was then that I discovered I had a talent for finding sore sports and I naturally wanted to try to ease pain and relax others. If it is your first time or you are nervous or don’t like the deep massage work, I give a very nice Swedish/Wellness Massage aimed at circulation and relaxing the nervous system. Fair warning: you might not remember where you parked your car after 😉
