MARIANNE SHALEWA

REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPIST

BPE (Kin.), RMT

New to Rossland, Marianne is originally from Edmonton, Alberta.  Marianne’s thirst for knowledge in the area of anatomy and how the body works originated from her background as a professional dancer, group fitness instructor, personal trainer and yoga instructor. Marianne graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Physical Education and Recreation.  Upon completion of the Bachelor’s degree, Marianne worked in the Rehabilitation field as a Kinesiologist with a strong focus on Chronic Pain Management. Marianne also worked in Physiotherapy clinics on both the East and West coasts of Canada.  Whilst working coast to coast, Marianne was inspired to see more and decided to do so by cycling all the way across Canada.  In the midst of her cycling quest, Marianne came across a little mountain town called Rossland and quickly made it her goal to plant roots down here and begin to explore this beautiful area.

Following a serious cycling accident, Marianne decided to change professional gears from Kinesiology to pursuing a career as a Registered Massage Therapist to enjoy a quiet, calm and relaxed atmosphere with her clients.  Marianne graduated from MH Vicars School of Massage with honours and is a Registered and Insured Massage Therapist with the CMTBC.  Her Rehabilitation background continues to allow her to provide effective treatment plants for clients as well as home care exercises to increase the longevity of their results. Marianne enjoys helping clients stay active and doing the things they enjoy most.  Marianne remains an avid cyclist and outdoor enthusiast.  When not working she is often trail running, cycling or ski touring with her adventure co-pilot her blue heeler Hilda.
