Stephanie Gillespie


Stephanie is a graduate from West Coast College of Massage Therapy,
out of New Westminster. In her two years there, she volunteered at
many different outreaches to provide therapeutic massage therapy for
people with many different conditions: depression, anxiety,
musculoskeletal injuries, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis, just to
name a few.

Before starting her career path to become an RMT, she gained a number
of experiences working in the Health and Wellness field as a Personal
Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor. She still loves to teach indoor
cycling classes and even enjoys her own personal workouts on the bike
whenever possible. However; what she enjoyed most was leading an
‘Active Age’ class to help rehabilitate those who had suffered from
strokes or heart attacks to get them back into healthy mobility. Being
able to help people of all ages become more aware of their body,
strength and overall wellness was what originally kicked off her idea
to become an RMT and she hopes to keep up both careers equally.
