A note from Rebecca:

I recently made the move to Prince Edward County, after falling in love with the area after only a couple of visits.  I hail from Toronto, where I graduated from the respected Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic. I’ve treated individuals of all ages – from kids to seniors.  Seeing such a diverse clientele every day is what I love most about being an RMT.  Please feel welcome to contact me with any questions you have regarding massage therapy, how it might benefit you, and what my treatment approach involves.

I look forward to complimenting the AWAY experience of rest and relaxation by offering my services on site at their award winning Bed & Breakfast on the banks of East Lake in Prince Edward County.


Relax at AWAY with a lake side massage!
