My Story

Hi, I'm Marieta! A Sports Massage Therapist with 10 years of experience in sports injury rehabilitation and prevention. As a former Canadian Team athlete, it’s no surprise that my passion lies in working with athletes to speed up recovery, prevent and/or rehab their injuries.

Fortunately I've been trained under the most respected Sports Medicine Chiropractors and MD’s in the Country which has allowed me the opportunity to work with the Toronto Blue Jays, players from the NHL, NBA, and MLB , and to be the massage therapist for the Toronto Bouldering World Cup.

In Squamish, I primarily work with runners, mountain bikers, kiteboarders, skiers, snowboarders, ironman athletes and rock climbers. The lifestyle this beautiful growing town has to offer, recently moved me from Toronto to start a new Squamish Massage Therapy practice . You can find me climbing, biking, snowboarding, or kiting during my free time.


As a child born into a climbing family, we built our first climbing gym when I was 12 years old. By age 14, I was representing Canada at my first Climbing Youth World Cup. If you grew up an athlete two decades ago, you can relate to how little rehab, prehab, mobility, or even stretching was recommended.

As a result, I was extremely imbalanced in my body, in pain, getting injured and with little ability to find a therapist that understood the first thing about the sport of rock climbing.

Business Woman

After 10 long years of climbing, both my body and mind were in need of a break. I switched focus as I began a Finance career. Working 12-hour days in a never-ending stressful environment naturally put a stop to my climbing. Four years later, my body was failing me once again. My muscle imbalances from my youth were rearing their ugly heads, and  tightness from a sedentary lifestyle was building up.

Something clearly had to change! My body was screaming HELP on a daily basis.

So I listened! I relied on my health care team on a weekly basis to keep me going, and found some balance through becoming a Yoga Teacher.


Massage Therapist

Seeing a massage therapists weekly was unsustainable. I knew that I not only needed a lifestyle change, but I wanted to make a difference in peoples lives. My own recovery was a true calling for the life I wanted to live.

I said goodbye to the Corporate world and completed my training to become an RMT.  My intention was to help others relieve their pain, improve their mobility and increase their strength. I can relate to just about anybody these days and understand what they are going through. I've been stressed, in pain, and I've been an elite athlete. I've experienced the physical, emotional and psychological stress our bodies cope with.

I'm committed to taking you from the massage table, to finding your inner balance to live and perform at your optimal level.



My new career allowed me to get back to climbing. With my former training experience and competitive nature I WAS BACK, competing for Team Canada on the World Cup circuit.

Once I retired from competition climbing in 2014, I took a four month climbing trip. Pushing my climbing to 5.14b came with a pleasant surprise upon my return. An accomplished climber AND an RMT was a rare find. No therapist can understand climbing injuries better than a climber themselves.

But it still wasn't enough. I DIDN'T KNOW ENOUGH. So I spent years studying under the best Sports Chiropractors and Medical Doctors in our industry, took dissection course (gross I know) and learned how to apply all this knowledge to climbing. I learned very quickly that even the best medical staff in the world DOES NOT understand climbing injuries if they didn't climb themselves.

In 2019, it was time to take another big leap. I left my practice in Toronto where I regularly treated recreational and professional athletes working at the Gary Roberts High Performance Centre. I moved to Squamish to pursue the lifestyle we are all here for. After working so hard to get where I am, it wasn't an easy choice to leave my clients behind and start a new Squamish Massage Therapy practice. But moving to Squamish and being able to provide massage therapy for all the active people that reside in this town is an absolute dream.
