My journey to becoming the owner of Therapeutic Body Concepts began after graduating from MacEwan University in 2010 with a 2200-hour Massage Therapy diploma. Throughout my career, I’ve worked at spas and various massage therapy clinics that have allowed me to grow as an individual and fine tune my skills as an RMT.  Massage Therapy was the career path that I wanted to take, but I always had this feeling of wanting more! I knew I could take on more and be more. I ventured off on my own in 2013 and rented space on my own in downtown Edmonton. Here I built my own little practice and got a taste for business ownership. This step was paramount for me to become a business owner. I wanted to be ready for any opportunities that came my way!

Therapeutic Body Concepts was a thriving clinic on the West End of Edmonton and was founded in 1998 by its original, amazing owner Leanne Power! The business was listed for sale in 2013. I noticed the advertisement while travelling in Hawaii and I felt immediately drawn to it. I had to find out more! I emailed the listing and a reply soon followed. I still remember the day I met Leanne for the first time and first stepped foot in the clinic. It felt right and I had this feeling of being at home! Leanne had built something truly beautiful and all of her hard work truly showed. It was perfect! After further conversations, meetings and a sharp learning curve for myself, I became the new owner of Therapeutic Body Concepts in January of 2014!

The dream of owning a clinic to better people’s health and wellness became a reality! The business started on Stony Plain Road and quickly expanded to our current space on the West End of Edmonton in June of 2016. After 2 more years we expanded to our second location on the South side of Edmonton in 2018!

I still continue to practice Massage Therapy full-time and absolutely love what I do! I look forward to helping all of my clients gain better body awareness, reduce tension and stress, increase range of motion and speed up recovery from injuries and overuse ailments! I take appointments mainly at our West location, but have a small amount of availability on the South side as well.

I strive to better myself and the clinics more every day! My goal is to continue to ensure that Therapeutic Body Concepts continues to be one of the best award-winning massage therapy clinics in Edmonton providing high quality, professional and effective treatments!

A big thank you to all of our wonderful, loyal clients at TBC! We wouldn’t be where we are today without you all!
