Thea Harvey has been an RMT for 10 years, living and working in the Bow Valley for almost 9 years. She loves the community and lifestyle here in the valley, and is continually inspired by the hard working, hard playing folks who make this valley home!
She obtained her massage therapy diploma at ICT Northumberland College in Halifax, N.S. She graduated from a 2 year, 2200-hour program with a strong focus on assessment and treatment skills. She then moved to London, O.N., and after becoming registered and began her career at a multidisciplinary clinic. Thus began her passion for therapeutic and rehab-focused massage therapy.
She believes in the cumulative benefits of massage therapy, and how complementary it is to active lifestyles.

What do you do when you aren’t massaging?
When I’m not working I’m riding my bike on trails by the Bow river, looking for sweet spots to dip my feet in the water, in Winter I’m snowboarding. I also love cooking, yoga, circuit training and playing my guitar (kind of badly, but oh well!).
What made you decide to become a massage therapist?
Having recovered from several sports injuries, I know firsthand how effective massage therapy is for healing the body and enhancing sports and workout performance.
