This left her wanting more; she enrolled in Massage Therapy at ICT Northumberland College and graduated July of 2009 as a Registered Massage Therapist.

While most of her focus is deep tissue work for chronic dysfunctions and headaches, Amy has taken an Aromatouch course and has grown interest to increase her skills and knowledge using these methods in her treatments. Amy has been travelling from Porter’s Lake since the Spa opened in 2014. Over these years she has grown a soft spot for working in East Hants and her for wonderful client’s she has helped.

From a young age, Marissa always knew she wanted to work in an industry where helping others was a priority. Graduating high school, she still wasn’t sure what that would look like. After witnessing people’s mental health decline with the stress of Covid-19, she knew becoming a massage therapist was the best way she could help, even if it was just an hour of relief. Marissa is Valedictorian of her graduating class, 2022, from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy. Born and raised in Lantz, Marissa is beyond honoured to be in such a rewarding industry and she will be able to help the people of East Hants and surrounding communities.
