Akela Derksen, RMT

After attending university in Ontario I relocated back to beautiful British Columbia and completed my Registered Massage Therapy diploma from Okanagan College of Massage Therapy. As my knowledge of human anatomy and physiology grew so did my passion for helping people reach their personal goals of health and wellness.

I believe we work best when we can learn to have a healthy relationship between our body and mind. My treatments use a variety of techniques such as myofascial release, Swedish massage, relaxation breath work, and PNF stretching to improve muscle imbalances and bio-mechanics, as well as promote tissue healing. I will also give you the tools and information to take control of your health at home with therapeutic exercises and postural cues. Together we will work as a team to get you feeling your best.

In my free time I try to take advantage of the beauty our province has to offer. Some of my favorite actives are hiking with friends, wandering around local markets, and swimming with my two dogs in Okanagan Lake. After spending time away from BC I can safely say I am never leaving this amazing place ever again!
