We at Advanced Approaches to Massage and Coaching are so pleased to be living a post-Covid life! While we still are choosing to be wearing masks when in treatment rooms with you, it is a personal choice for you as to whether you would like to wear one or not.
Nick, Sweta, & Susierra
Also we are enjoying the presence of a new front desk person. Sweta Dhodi hails from Mumbai, India. She has extensive experience with assisting in a physiotherapeutic environment and is continuing her knowledge of health care clinic function, at Canadore College. Sweta will be happy to help you with any requests you might have.
We are very excited to share that we have completed renovations on our Couples Suite. We have taken the building down to the studs and retrofitted everything so it is cosier than before. It is now available for small group classes such as yoga. If you are interested, or know of someone who is, reach out to Susierra.
We are also beyond thrilled to announce the return of the KRVBC (Kingston Road Village Business Community) Spring Fair / Fest: On Saturday June 10 from 11:00 to 4:00 p.m, there will be lots of fun activities for adults as well as kids throughout the Kingston Road Village.
Susierra Willson and Kate Marshall Flaherty
We will be having accomplished poet Kate Marshall Flaherty on site to share some of her writings. Kate has lived in the neighbourhood for decades and recently returned from an inspirational trip to Italy. Also, in co-operation with our neighbours to the west 99 Bottles we will be having some local musicians perform. Stay “tuned” literally for more details.
As both Mothers’ and Fathers’ Days approach, we invite you to consider giving your parent or loved one a gift that will be truly appreciated — what is better than some healing, restorative time with some of the city’s best massage therapists??
You don’t have to worry about expiration as our certificates never expire and can be used by another family member if the gifted party doesn’t want to redeem it! Some clients choose to book in with their parent or loved one. Come in together for a session in our Couples Treatment Room, then walk through our lovely neighbourhood, do a little shopping, and end with a bite to eat at one of our delightful eateries!
Tanya Todd and Susierra Willson
We would love to introduce you to a couple of new arrivals to the KRVBC Street scene: Studio Mooi was opened late fall by entrepreneur Tanya Todd. Tanya and her husband were moving around due to his job relocation, and upon returning to Toronto, decided to plant themselves in our beautiful and thriving neighbourhood. A number of local makers and artists are offering unique classes at the studio. As Tanya says, “It isn’t always easy to find a place to belong … Studio Mooi aims to use the creative arts to do just that – to help you find your people.“
Susierra Willson and Dr. Jen Parsons
Another welcome arrival is Dr. Jen Parsons, Naturopath. If you are looking for a new naturopath or are exploring naturopathy for the first time, Jen is seeing clients Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the Naturopathic Nook. You will feel your health concerns are taken seriously and valuable solutions provided by this caring practitioner.
One of our clients is the owner / manager of the Beech Tree, our wonderful local “foodie fabulous'” restaurant. Helder Cabral was a great supportive presence to many of the local businesses during the Covid lockdown. During the lockdown he also decided to take up running and completed his first marathon in 2020. I am thinking running is a great way to burn off calories connected to the delicious items coming out of the Beech Tree kitchen?!! Bravo Helder!
Our quote of the month is from “Draw the Circle Wide” by the late great Canadian musician, Gordon Lightfoot. Susierra was fortunate to have met him backstage after a friend’s concert about a decade ago.
“… let our hearts touch far horizons,
let our love know no borders,
draw the circles wide until,
no one stands alone…”
We love Gordon’s words. As the weather gets warmer, here’s to us warming and opening our hearts — especially to our neighbours! Happy Spring!!
