Beata Konieczka, Registered Massage Therapist

My name is Beata Konieczka. My gift as a health care practitioner is to help facilitate and empower self love for my clients through body awareness, strengthening exercises, hydrotherapy suggestions and yoga therapy.

My journey into massage began at 18, when I received a truly transformative, deeply healing massage from a Thai yoga therapist. This lead me to the West Coast College of Massage in 2007, where I completed a one year full-time Spa Practitioner program. There I studied Shiatsu, Thai Yoga, Aromatherapy, Healing Hydrotherapy, Swedish Massage and Reflexology. Soon after graduating, I was hired to practice massage at Miraj Hammam Spa on Granville and 6th, where I learned the magic of hydrotherapy and aromatherapy. They offer steam bath and full body exfoliations before treatment as a method of deepening the effectiveness of a massage. 

My adventures have stretched across 5 continents bringing me endless creative inspiration and valuable life experiences, one of these trips took me to Hawaii to study Lomi-Lomi massage, a type native to Hawaii, known for its deep flow and shamanic healing roots. Through the movement and dance of massage, I had found a consistent, bountiful source of creative flow and connection to my community through the healing arts. Inspired by the results of decreased pain and increased energy of my clients, after 8 years practicing, I decided to take the next step and become a Registered Massage Therapist and attended Vancouver College of Massage Therapy to further deepen my knowledge of the physical body. 

I am now offering a more integrated holistic approach to massage, combining deep relaxation with deep tissue and orthopaedic style (special testing, homecare including stretch and strengthening) of assessment and treatment planning. I enjoy the process of creating intimate and trusted connections with my clients and community, leading people back to awareness of their own self healing abilities with careful attention to exercise, posture, biomechanics and lifestyle choices. 

I look forward to collaborating with you!
