Donna has been practicing massage since 2008 and has recently graduated from an intensive massage program where she has upgraded her massage skills even further.
Donna focuses on a therapeutic massage in a relaxing way. She thrives to have clients relaxed as possible and will work as needed into problem areas while also using soothing relaxing techniques in her full body massages. She takes a special interest in working with people’s necks and heads, whether for aches and pains or to relax and unwind.

Alexis followed in her mom’s footsteps and became a Registered Massage Therapist in 2017.
Being trained in muscle energy techniques has her focused on therapeutic and deep tissue massage while keeping the client as comfortable and relaxed as possible. While working directly with the soft tissues of the body, Alexis uses silicon and vacuum cupping in a variety of ways to help with fascia and mobility.
With a passion for constantly learning and growing she is enrolled in and working through a medical massage therapy certificate program with focus on soft tissue injuries. Once completed she’ll be doing some certification in pre and postnatal massages, where she has a special interest.

The other half of her time she is with patients in her own treatment room! With a background as a personal trainer she is very interested in mobility and how the body works together. She has a dream of working with a sports team at some point in her career!

Chloe graduated from Alberta Institute of Massage a couple years ago and has been working at their associated massage clinic up until coming to Aligned Together. Graduating with Directors Honours and the Fellow Student award, Chloe is thrilled to work alongside the practitioners at Aligned Together. They “align” with her desire to help people the best they can by using a collaborative approach and working together to serve others. Her instincts, thorough instruction, and heart of compassion guide her well while treating every client’s unique needs.
Myofascial cupping, trigger point therapy, deep transverse frictions, and joint mobilizations are her go to techniques. Lately, she has been passionate about mobility work and joint health. She has incorporated more passive, active, and resisted range of motion work and stretching into her treatments in order to do this. She makes sure to inform her clients of what they can be doing at home to prolong the benefits of a massage and take care of their body in a way only an individual can. And then sometimes…there’s nothing quite like a relaxation massage to calm the body and the mind. Chloe has a heart for women and infant health and will continue her education by completing pre-natal, post-natal, and breast cancer survivor/ post mastectomy courses.
