Briana graduated from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy.

She has continued her massage therapy education with courses in temporomandible joint dysfunction (TMJD) and intra-oral massage. Briana’s love of massage, health, and the body comes from growing up participating in dance. She endeavours to make every treatment unique to her patients’ needs and goals, as well as being an educational resource for her patients to understand how their body works. When Briana isn’t at the clinic she is likely teaching at CCMH or hanging from the ceiling on her aerial silks. Whenever she can, Briana volunteers with members of the Halifax circus and performing arts community.
