clinic Owner

I am a graduate of Sutherland-Chan, and I've worked in health clinics (Advanced Therapeutics), hospitals, yoga studios, and luxury spas (Shangri-la Miraj Hammam Spa), giving me a solid foundation to treat all kinds of acute and chronic conditions, as well as give a very nourishing deep relaxation massage.  My most recent course was with DTS Fitness Education where I trained in Fascial Stretch Therapy Level 1. 

After graduating from Sutherland-Chan in 2010,  I traveled to India for 6 months to study Yoga, Massage, & Ayurveda under the guidance of traditional Ayurvedic Doctors who taught the mechanics of how to achieve wellness within the mind, body, and spirit.

I am a Birth Doula & Labour Support Provider with a certificate from Trimesters.  As a Doula my goal is to assist women and their families in having the most incredible child-birthing experience possible.  I have taken online courses to become an AyurDoula, the term used for a Doula who uses Ayurvedic principles in prenatal and postpartum care for Mother and newborn.

I have spent many years in self-discovery practicing the art of Ecstatic Dance, Tai Chi, Qigong, Meditation, and Shamanism from North and South America.  My openness to learn new things combined with my desire to help people live fulfilling lives has led me to opening Atinama, a massage clinic in the heart of Toronto, and where it is my honour to assist with your goals of well-being.

Hot Stone Massage

Kinesio-taping

My treatments tend to be deep and slow, working within my clients' pain threshold to achieve a release of muscular tension and improved posture.  This client centered approach uses a variety of techniques including; Swedish/deep tissue, Myofascial Release, Joint Mobilizations, Post Isometric Release, Stretching,  Kinesio-taping and Hot Stones.  

I am graduate of Sutherland-Chan where I gained foundational knowledge of anatomy and physiology.  I have seen patients from 6-96 yearsof age, from all walks of life; executives to yogis, expectant moms to performers, athletes to retirees.  I am confidant I can meet the client at their level and design a treatment plan appropriate for their goals.

In addition to My massage training I have taken courses in Energy Healing and Intuitive Development, and I believe in using an approach that balances scientific knowledge with an intuitive touch to create individual treatment plans for each of my clients.

Womb Blessings

I approach massage and yoga as I do life—with presence and a holistic view, making connections between the mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, and other aspects of our human being-ness. 

Since graduating from Sutherland-Chan in 2011, my massage style has evolved into a blend of myofascial stretching and rhythmic techniques infused with energy & sound healing, breath-work, guided meditation, and coaching where appropriate.  I have certifications in Thai massage (level 2) and Reiki (level 2), additional training in NISA, lymphatic drainage, breast massage, and extensive leadership and coaching training through organizations including Landmark Worldwide and High Performance Academy.

I've been a mover my whole life--yoga, dance, martial arts, you name it. And in 2014 listened to the call to get my yoga teaching certificate. For 3 summers I immersed myself in a Warrior Training program, learning shamanism, Ayurveda, kung fu, and Hatha yoga. As my practice continually develops and deepens, teaching has become a true passion. I love witnessing the transformation that happens when students look deep into themselves and discover their strength and power. Intensive training has taught me that I am a sensitive and intuitive facilitator. I love working with clients committed to personal development and want to live their full potential!

Registered Massage Therapist

Active Release Therapy

Neuro-functional Sports Performance

I truly love working with my patients and aim to provide a unique experience with each visit.

This passion of providing the benefits a person gains from receiving massage was passed on to me from my maternal grandmother. In 2008, I moved from Montréal to Toronto to study massage therapy at Kikkawa College. In parallel to massage therapy, I undertook the Active Release Therapy program and completed the Upper Extremity, Lower Extremity and Spine modules. Once I had my Registered Massage Therapy license in hand, I went to McMaster University to complete the Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program, as well as the Advanced Neurofunctional Sports Performance Program.

It is a pleasure to join the Atinama massage therapy clinic and cannot wait to share my expertise with you. I am already looking forward to treating you. When can I see you?

katie MOORE

REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPist

In a society where our lives are met with  stress at every step, we must place ourselves in the ideal position to thrive.  I firmly believe that a sound, healthy body is the foundation of vitality, and of a life well lived.  I treat others very much the way I approach my own body: with presence, wonder and respect.  As your practitioner, I will address and treat the needs of your overall system in a clinical and holistic manner.  This means that I will use a variety of techniques and approaches based on the way you show up that day, in both mind and body.  It is all connected, after all. 

The patient-practitioner relationship is highly valued in my practice.  I aim to relax, heal and strengthen all the while guiding you as the individual to understand more about your body and how to work towards optimal living and self-healing. 

As a graduate of Sutherland-Chan, I am well practiced in all areas of Swedish Technique and deep tissue work, with a particular focus in relaxation, myofascial work and visceral manipulation.

Calvin Lee

Registered Massage Therapist

Body Awareness Educator

My belief is that the way to developing a consistent intrinsic motivation to lead an active, health-oriented lifestyle is to start with connecting with your own body in a more mindful way.

Staying dedicated to my own physical practice, studying with some world class movement educators, handbalancers, and strength trainers, coupled with my interest in hollistic health, has honed my understanding in educating others to achieving greater body awareness.

In the course of a treatment with me, you can expect to connect with your breathing to ease you into getting deeper structures released. I often work along fascial chains, treat muscles as a functional group, utilize dynamic release techniques, promote awareness to areas that feel 'blocked' or 'weak' and/or apply gentle stretching.

Roselle Quesnel

Registered Massage Therapist

Shiatsu practitioner

My interest in body mechanics and healing stem from an early passion for movement and dance.  While attending George Brown College's Dance Program, I suffered an injury that led me to focus on the function and healing of the body. 

Having experienced injury as a high level movement practitioner, my approach to healing is very much influenced by the type of work that had the greatest impact on my own recovery and well-being.  I am interested in helping people become more attuned and sensitive to their body's needs and sensations through gentle yet effective manual techniques such as John F. Barnes Myofascial Release as well as acupressure.  With the body awareness accessed through deeper sensitivity, a person can work through injury with greater ease and ultimately reduce it's occurrence, allowing for more freedom in the body and from pain. 

Client independence and long-term healing is valuable to me, I therefore teach self-treatment, postural awareness, and breathing techniques to empower clients and give them more autonomy in regards to their health. 

I graduated from the Shiatsu Program at The Shiatsu school of Canada in 2010, and then from the Massage Therapy program at Kikkawa College in 2017.

Jerry Nie

Registered Massage Therapist

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture (RMT covered)

I am a graduate of Sutherland-Chan Massage Therapy School, 2011 and I have been treating syndromes of Pain, Injury and Stress with scientific-based and intuitively-applied massage.

I learned that a body's physiological structure is not the source cause of the pain;  rather, social and psychological stress combined with neurological effects are more related.  Thus, the massage treatment is a trusted progressive cooperation between the RMT and the Client.  I believe our personality helps the treatment outcome: Honesty, Kindness, and Curiosity.

Since June 3, 2012, I have been authorized for RMT acupuncture by the College of the Massage Therapist of Ontario ( CMTO ); The cost is covered by extended RMT Massage Insurance (not Acupuncturist insurance). RMT acupuncture is for treatment or prevention of pain and disfunction in the bodies tissues and joints.  Typical treatments are sciatica, frozen shoulder, sports injuries. Single use, prepackaged, sterilized needles are used with registered biohazard recycle program of Ontario.

I am a graduate of Neurological Modulation Acupuncture from McMaster University;  Traditional Chinese Medical Acupuncture in China; Master of Science in Engineering in the USA; and BA of Math and Computation from Queen's University in Canada.

Kim Goode

Registered Massage Therapist

lymphatic Drainage Massage

My style is best described as a medium to firm pressure massage that gets all the hard-to-reach spots that have been bothering you all week, but I will have you floating on a cloud when we are done. In my treatments you will always receive an enjoyable hands-on experience accompanied by therapeutic exercises and insights about your individual body mechanics that will help you make realistic lifestyle changes that are attainable for you to achieve. With a degree in Kinesiology from Western University (2016) and a Massage Therapy Diploma from Sutherland-Chan (2017) I am able to deliver a relaxing, tissue-engaging massage with a clinical focus.  

I am also trained in MLD (Manual Lymphatic Drainage), Post-Surgical Scar Work and Breast Massage which I use to treat many clients who have undergone any chest-related surgeries (ie. Mastectomy/Top Surgery, Breast Reconstruction - Breast Enhancement/Reduction, Lumpectomy, Transition Surgeries etc). With any surgery there are emotional and physical scars that require proper attention and treatment; my role is to help release any physical restrictions that may be holding you back (literally or figuratively). Unfortunately, it is not widely known how essential manual post-surgical care is for an optimal recovery, however, I am here to share my knowledge with anyone who is looking for an effective and efficient treatment or rehabilitation. Another benefit to this training is that lot of these concepts and techniques are translated into my non-surgical treatments for those suffering from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Upper Cross Syndrome that is experienced by many office workers today. So, whether you are looking for specialized post-surgical care or just a way to relieve and treat the constant tension in between your neck and shoulder blades, I look forward to meeting you and working with you to help face your day with less discomfort.

Jack Kurgan

Registered Massage Therapist

I believe healing is achievable when we tune into our bodies to find the source of our struggles, whether it be physical or mental. The process of healing is a cycle of recognition, action and persistence. Through my holistic journey I have learned the connection we have to our surroundings can have an effect on our mental and physical health. When we are struggling with pain we can often get lost in one aspect of it, so I strive to help my clients see the bigger picture from a grounded perspective. Through my experience as a competitive soccer player and a personal trainer, as well as the knowledge I gained at Sutherland-Chan, I have developed techniques such as myo-fascial work, energy work, diaphragmatic breathing, joint mobilization, cranio-sacral therapy, and reflexology to help my clients along their journey. During our treatments intuition will be used to create a complimentary and effective session that will leave you feeling grounded and open to more self discovery.
