Massage Therapy & Healing Work

Benefit from a holistic approach to massage and shamanic healing work. Bermalva has been working in the natural health field for 18 years. She studied Swedish massage and hydrotherapy in Ottawa, Ontario through Ontario’s RMT program at the International Academy of Massage. She is also a certified yoga instructor, infant massage instructor, and birth/post partum Doula. Her skill and intuitive nature will reassure sore backs, reduce aches and pains, aid recovery from injury and create balance.  She is founder of the Pontiac Wellness Centre in Shawville, Quebec, where she practices.

Spiritual counselling sessions form part of the holistic care offered at the centre. Although different from massage therapy, they are conversational sessions focused on exploring the inner needs of clients. 

This, along with the use of many other complimentary therapies such as audio frequency therapy, hydrotherapy, shamanism, yoga and breath therapy, Ayurveda, herbs, vitamins and nutrition, will be of service to you in gaining and maintaining your full health, mobility and wellness.

Her approach is best suited for clients looking for more in depth healing, investigating the body/mind/spirit connections. She is also a spiritual counselor, shaman and sacred ceremonialist, offering ceremony and rites of passage to enhance life on Earth for the betterment of all, and travels internationally with her work.

Ongoing yoga classes also take place at the centre.  See “Yoga” section for more details
