Welcome! My name is Tatyana. I am the Registered Massage Therapist, operator, and owner of The Walnut Tree mini-clinic.
I first graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting degree and have since performed with numerous theatre companies from Edmonton. I took a two-year hiatus from performing to study Massage Therapy and here I am now, having graduated from MH Vicars School of Massage Therapy in Edmonton, completing the 2,200-hour (2-year) program with Honours.
I am a member of the Massage Therapist Association of Alberta and have the ability to direct bill various insurance companies. Please see the DIRECT BILLING page.
My passion is in helping individuals heal, whether that means stress management or treating a physical injury. My approach to massage therapy is that it must be customizable (no two bodies are the same), safe, and effective, where all clients are treated with the utmost respect and care.
Opening my own mini-clinic has been a dream come true. I am forever thankful to the special individuals in my life for all the help, love, and support.
