Cassandra Varteresian, DOMP (Can) / RMT Registered Massage Therapist, Osteopathic Manual Practitioner (CEO-QC)

Cassandra is driven by the potential of the human body to adapt and heal. With over 16 years of clinical experience behind her, she has learned with the right guidance our bodies are able to realign and release habitual holding patterns which have a detrimental effect on how our tissues function on a daily basis.

Her journey into holistic health began in 1999 at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy where she qualified as a Registered Massage Therapist. Her thirst for understanding the intricate nature of the body then led her to the Collèges d'Etudes Osteopathiques de Montréal where she learnt the Art and Science of Manual Osteopathy Hand-in-hand these two manual therapeutic designations have fine-tuned her palpatory sense such that she is able to effectively assess and treat the cause of discomfort of her clients as well as manage present symptoms.

Cassandra is passionate about learning and exploring the most advanced tools and techniques to incorporate into her treatments. She is continually upgrading her skills to bring the best expertise to her practice.

Travis Cuddington, BSc Kin / DOMP (candidate)

Growing up in Lumsden, Saskatchewan, Travis has always been involved with sports and wellness activities. In 2007, after playing junior hockey in Estevan, Travis decided to pursue his academic career at the University of Saskatchewan. Knowing that he wanted to help people live better, naturally, Travis enrolled in the college of Kinesiology and began his study of the human body. During his studies, Travis became more drawn to natural ways of healing. It was at a yoga teacher training, that Travis met a student in her fifth year of Osteopathic study, and he heard about the treatment methods and philosophy of Osteopathy. He knew as soon as learnt about it, that this was the path he wanted to pursue.

Following the completion of his degree in 2011, Travis began his studies with the BC School of Osteopathic Manual Practice in Vancouver, which is operated by the Collège d'Études Ostéopathiques in Montreal. Travis is currently finishing his fifth year of Osteopathic studies in Vancouver and has already begun work on his thesis.

Complimenting his studies in current studies in Osteopathy, Travis continually adds more training with advanced courses in Osteopathy and yoga. Past courses include a 200 hour teacher training in Ashtanga Yoga, Minimal Lever Adjustments and How to Stimulate the Healing Process.

When he is not studying or treating, Travis can be found practicing yoga, snowboarding or running/biking the local trails. To help give back to the community, Travis has also been helping coach minor hockey in West Vancouver.
