Amita Gupta, Owner and RMT
In 2008 Amita graduated from the Massage Therapy program at Brenneke School of Massage in Seattle, and relocated to Edmonton in 2014 to be closer to her family. It was while Amita was at a yoga retreat that she was rubbing another yogis shoulders who turned around and asked "Are you a massage therapist? And if not then you should definitely consider it as a career!" That seed was implanted and a year or so later that conversation came back while doing yoga and alignment. She felt it would help her understand the body and muscles. Then began the journey of becoming a massage therapist.
Amita's primary focus is therapeutic massage however; she believes that to be truly therapeutic relaxation is the ground for healing. So no matter what the focus of the session, be it treating shoulder soreness or low back pain she incorporates into a massage little extras such as soothing warm towels, Hagina Japanese mint oil, and essential oils. Amita strives to keep growing both personally and professionally and so she is always looking for the next course to take. Shiatsu is the most recent training. Amita utilizes a wide variety of techniques to customize a treatment to fit your individual needs and help resolve the concerns without pain and likes to use breath as a method.
