Shantel Hesse Portrait

Registered Massage Therapist

I was born and raised on the outskirts of Grande Prairie Alberta. I realized my passion for therapeutic massage at a young age and it grew while working as a licensed esthetician in a local spa. Once enrolled in the massage therapy program, I graduated with honours from Alberta College of Massage Therapy here in Grande Prairie in 2021, I practiced massage therapy through out my schooling and once graduated I have taken certified courses to further my education in the registered massage therapy field, including relaxation and deep tissue Hot Stone massage as well as Cupping Therapy. My goal as a Registered Massage Therapist is to give my clients a comfortable, professional, and therapeutic experience with a combination of light, medium to deep pressure techniques using pin and stretch, stripping, and trigger point release. I believe our daily routine has an impact on our physical bodies, so don’t be surprised if I send a stretch or two home with you to use for your home care.

I also enjoy pediatric treatments, having a great understanding of how bone growth stretches the muscle throughout development. I find a combination of friction and light stripping to be very effective and calming to the nervous system. I am excited to continue enrolling in certified courses to further my education. My passions outside of work include spending time outdoors camping with my family & dogs, horseback riding, or finding a river or lake to take in.
