Courtney Barnes, RMT

Courtney grew up in Kelowna and loves the Okanagan lifestyle. Upon graduating from KSS Courtney knew in her heart that she wanted a career in natural medicine. She pursued her dreams and received her Holistic Practitioners Diploma at the Can adian Institute of Natural Health and Healing in 2011. This course changed her life and also introduced her to the wonderful world of massage. As her passion and curiosity for the human body grew stronger, she enrolled in the Massage Therapy program at Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy and graduated in August 2014. She is Registered with the College of Massage Therapist of BC and the Registered Massage Therapists' Association of BC.

Courtneys' passion for learning new modalities will never die, but there is one modality that really speaks to her, and that is Craniosacral Therapy (CST). During her first year of the Massage Therapy program, she was introduced to CST and received her Level 1 Certification, with the Upledger Institute, immediately. It lit a fire in her heart, so she is in the process of getting her Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Diploma right away with Body Intelligence Training. What she loves about this modality is that it gives the body a chance to recognize its old patterns and learn to correct them itself. This is very empowering and also very relaxing.

Having this background has motivated Courtney to approach her treatments with a more holistic view, and with the patience and compassion to understand how every client & treatment is unique. She believes listening to what the body needs and encouraging it to correct itself is more effective and longer lasting, while creating a safe relaxing environment for her clients is at most importance.
