What is massage therapy?
Massage therapy is a comprehensive intervention involving a range of techniques to manipulate the soft tissues and joints of the body. The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function or relieve pain1 (Massage Therapy Act, 1991). It is a clinically-oriented health option that achieves undeniable results in the relief of an array of discomforts stemming from stress, muscular overuse and many chronic pain syndromes.

The benefits of massage therapy
There are tremendous benefits to be achieved through regular massage therapy treatments from a Registered Massage Therapist. Whether your need is to have a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension or attain relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well-being as well as your quality of life.

Massage therapy benefits people of all ages. While it benefits the injured, the ill and the stressed, the strength of massage therapy in preventing illness and conditions before they develop cannot be overlooked. Massage therapy can be used in the treatment of both acute and chronic stages of conditions.

Registered Massage Therapists


Krista Stewart, RMT

Hello everyone, I'm Krista, and I'm so happy to be working here at Palmer Chiropractic & Wellness Centre! I was introduced to massage in 2004 when I sought regular treatments for desk-work related tension and stress. Within a couple months, I began to re-evaluate my work and life goals, quit my office career, got married, moved, and enrolled in the massage therapy program. After graduating and registering with the CMTO in August 2006, I obtained my 1st and 2nd degree Reiki certification in 2009, and completed the Yoga Teacher training in 2010, practicing and learning through various venues over the years. As a new Midland resident, moving from Sarnia with my husband and three children in December 2018, I am eager to revive my practice and meet new clients!

With 13 years of experience as a Registered Massage Therapist in maintenance care, managing chronic conditions, injury recovery, and holistic healing in settings from private office, full service spa, wellness centre and multidisciplinary clinic, I have developed a keen sense of meeting each client where they are in their healing and wellness journey. Based on a fundamental belief in the body's inherent healing capacity and ability to maintain homeostasis, I help to make space for the healing to regain health and vitality. My therapy has been described as "intuitively guided therapeutic massage", with a specialty in addressing chronic pain or restrictions and integrating body awareness into people's daily lives. My treatment approach is a fluid but firm pressure to coax the body back into balance. Some of the techniques I may use include: general Swedish massage, deep tissue therapy, Reiki healing, fascial techniques, breath awareness, aromatherapy, and passive and/or guided stretching. I am looking to working with people committed to making positive changes in their lives, and sharing what they learn with others.

Tracy Blanchard, RMT

I have been registered and working in Simcoe County since moving home from Newfoundland in 2007. I Have gained my experience from working multidisciplinary clinics for most of my career, I also have had the privilege of working at the beautiful Scandinave Spa in Blue Mountain. Working at Blue Mountain has taught me the value of a relaxation massage in our busy lives. The relaxing atmosphere at Palmer Chiropractic & Wellness Centre confirms what I know to be true.

I have two beautiful teenagers and a loving husband that I love spending down time with. We lead an active family life here in Georgian Bay, and spend lots of time with our beloved French Bulldogs. I look forward to treating and helping as many people as I can during my years here as a Massage Therapist.
