Alicia Harrison, RMT

Vodder Certified Lymphatic Therapist (MLD/CDT)

Alicia is a small-town girl, BC born and raised! She has been practicing massage therapy in Kelowna since 2014 after graduating from the 3000-hour program at OVCMT in Vernon and receiving her full certification in Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) and Combined Decongestive Therapy (CDT) from the Dr. Vodder School in Victoria.

Alicia was drawn to a career in massage therapy from a desire to help others feel supported in living a more pain free life.  “Pain and dysfunction can prevent us from living our most fulfilling and authentic lives and I think it’s so important to address that.”  Her goal is to help her patients feel educated in caring for their bodies and she encourages them to be advocates in their own care. 
Alicia’s massage style is based on a gentle, holistic / whole body approach using Swedish relaxation massage, neuromuscular, myofascial, and lymphatic drainage techniques.  She has a practice focus on clinical lymphatic health including oncology massage, mastectomy, post surgical lymphedema, primary lymphedema, lipedema, venous insufficiency, palliative care, gender-affirming surgical care, pregnancy, acute injury, inflammation, headaches, congestion, and general immune health. 
Outside of the clinic Alicia enjoys camping in the mountains with her partner, yoga, hiking, her two cats, and chai lattes! 

Registered Massage Therapist

Heather Narraway, RMT

Heather is a well-established RMT who became very passionate about massage therapy due to her own personal battle with chronic pain.

Heather has been practicing massage therapy since 2012 after graduating from Vancouver College of Massage Therapy. She moved to Kelowna from Vancouver in 2021 after spending the majority of her time practicing in Abbotsford. Through Heather’s own battle with chronic pain she developed a unique understanding of injuries and how it can affect the body as a whole, not just physically but mentally too.

She has had success treating various chronic and acute injuries such as but not limited to headaches and migraines, jaw pain and dysfunction,  MVA injuries, concussions, postural imbalances, musculoskeletal dysfunction, compensation patterns, chronic holding patterns and movement dysfunctions.

Heather believes that when you treat the root cause, figure out what their goals are, every aspect of the patient’s life improves.  She does this using a variety of different techniques such as: myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, neuromuscular techniques, deep tissue, trigger point release and corrective exercise, and pilates movements. 

To Heather, every patient and every day is unique and requires an individualized approach that encompasses their main treatment goals, consideration of what state their nervous system is in and how they best need support that day. 

This past summer she completed her level 1 Trauma informed certification and incorporates the principles she learnt into every treatment

When she is not practicing you can find Heather teaching at the local massage therapy college, creating delicious desserts, exploring with her husband, Sean and their dog Bella.
