Tully Holman

Registered Massage Therapist

Cassie Valadares

Registered Physiotherapist

     As a graduate of the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy, and a Registered Massage Therapist with the CMTO, Tully believes that massage therapy can be incorporated into any health plan to help patients minimize pain and reach a higher state of health and well being. 

     Throughout Tully's life, he has always had a fascination with how the human body works. By the age of 18, Tully could feel a deep compassion inside that made him want to help those in pain around him, and this led to his training in massage. Tull was able to obtain a greater understanding of how the body reacts to stress, pain and injury through his education as an RMT. 

     Tully is very interested in Eastern and Western theory and his massage and healing style reflects that. Tully takes the best of everything he has learnt and customizes it for his patient. Sometimes problems can manifest physically, emotionally or spiritually and there is a need to unlock these energetic patterns for the greatest success in the relief of pain and ailment, using acupressure, meridian therapy and massage to promote relaxation and decrease pain. Tully focuses on boosting energy levels, improving sleep patterns and educating his patients on self awareness to help engage the body’s natural healing system.  

      Cassie completed her undergraduate degrees at the University of New Brunswick where she graduated with a BSc in Kinesiology and a BA in Sport & Exercise Psychology.  Being a member of both the soccer and rugby teams at UNB, she spent a lot of time with the team therapists which lead her to pursue her education in this field.
