ADRIENNE THIESSEN

REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPIST

I have lived in Winkler all my life and couldn’t imagine calling any other place home. My husband and I got married in summer of 2018. In my spare time I enjoy spending time outdoors hiking, camping, and just being around family and friends.


I am a 2021 graduate from Wellington College of Remedial Massage Therapies. I have recently enjoyed studying muscles, osteopathic-based assessments, and therapeutic massage techniques to be able to find and treat dysfunctions in the musculoskeletal system.


My goal is to get to the root cause of your discomfort/pain in our session together. I am passionate about helping others and will do everything I can to make you feel comfortable and leave feeling your best. I look forward to meeting you!

MEGHAN BARTSCH

REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPIST

I am a 2021 graduate of Wellington College of Remedial Massage Therapies. Working in the health care field has always been something I have been very passionate about. In 2019 I started my studies at Wellington and since then have learned so much about the anatomy of the human body and the importance of osteopathic based assessment and treatment for treating any dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system.


In my spare time I love helping out around my parent’s family farm, spending time with friends and family and with any animals I can show a little love to! My husband and I got married in 2018 and since then have added a golden Labrador to our family named Nova. 

I believe one of the most important parts of treatment is client-therapist communication. One of my goals is to create a comfortable, environment to help better understand each client’s needs and expectations to then create the best treatment plan specific to each client I see. I am so excited to serve the community and surrounding that I call home. I look forward to meeting you and being a part of your wellness journey!
