Hi, I’m Stella!
After starting my education in Kinesiology, I switched to, and graduated from the Registered Massage Therapy Program at Langara.
My practice is based on my fascination and respect for our bodies’ natural wisdom and desire to move towards balance. My approach to treatment will be unique to each individual I work with. You know your body better than anyone, and I believe in building a treatment plan together that caters to what works best for you. That being said, the techniques I enjoy using the most are myofascial release, active release, trigger point release, active and passive stretching and joint play. Regardless of why you’re coming in, I find treatments are most effective and enjoyable when working together to reach your goals.
I am dedicated to creating a safe space and welcoming anyone, no matter why you’re coming in or how you present yourself, including your pronouns, gender expression and identity.
Please note Stella is currently only taking payment by E-transfer, cheque or direct deposit through Pacific Blue Cross.

She often combines acupuncture and Moxa (herbal heat therapy) . Together they work deeply to relax stressed body and mind.
Moxa cones are made of the medicinal herb, mugwort. It’s placed on the skin and lit up to give quite pleasant warmth until it’s removed when 80-90% burned, thus leaving no burning sensation. A Japanese study shows Moxa treatment stimulates parasympathetic nerves(relaxing), and improves the movement of white blood cells, improves movement of white blood cells, enhances blood circulation and immunity.
For these properties acupuncture and Moxa treatment effectively treats various pains and inflammatory conditions such as allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, digestive complaints, gynaecological problems, anxiety and sleeping disorders and other dis-eases.
