Phoenix Massage & Wellness Team

The Phoenix is the ultimate symbol of strength and renewal. As a powerful symbol of fire, it continuously goes through a cycle of transformation and rebirth by rising from its own ashes. The Phoenix animal guide is also symbolic of the sun, which “dies” in setting each night only to be reborn in rising the next morning.

 

Just as the Phoenix rises in renewal each day, so do you! This Centre has been built as a means to connect the body and mind in this hectic world. The array of colours in our Phoenix logo represents inclusivity; being accepted no matter our individual differences. Everyone deserves to be heard and to feel safe physically, mentally, and emotionally.

 

At Phoenix Massage & Wellness YYC, we provide you with a platform to connect with your mind, body and soul through massage treatments, individual counselling and coaching sessions. Allow us to support you in your journey.

Fay Allison, RMT

Fay graduated from the Makami 3000 hour program and is certified in Dynamic Cupping as well.

“At some point we all suffer with pain which our body holds onto in many ways. Whether it’s everyday stress, injuries, or illness; your pain is as unique as you are. We will work together to create a treatment plan that best suits your needs.”

Fay is very excited to continue her education, broaden her scope of practice, and integrate different modalities to provide the greatest benefit for new and existing clients.

“Let’s work together to create harmony within.”

"I have to be honest. I don’t like trying new massage places. It’s hard to find a therapist that does a deep tissue massage with as much pressure as I like but I thought I would give Phoenix a try. From the minute a got there I felt very welcomed by your lovely receptionist. I picked Fay for my massage and I couldn’t have been more pleased. She gives a great massage and asked me several times how the pressure was as I told her that was a past issue. I will for sure be back to book another appointment with Fay. It wonderful to have you in my neighborhood and I hope you are here for a long time to come."

Marcella Bos - Certified Reflexologist and Reiki Master

Marcella Bos - Certified Reflexologist and Reiki Master

The heart of true Wellness is the balance of a healthy Mind, Body and Soul.

The life I have lived, the experiences that I have had and the choices that I made led me down a path filled with depression, pain, anxiety and constant uncertainty. All of my choices were based on social pressures and expectations of what would constitute a happy and fulfilling life: work at job and develop a career, give all that you have and more to be a ‘good and valuable employee’. So that’s what I did. I went to a job where I poured myself into, coming early, staying late, missing breaks, engaging in team cohesion, and picking up shifts for others – the perfect team player. No matter how hard I tried, how much I gave or how loyal I was, it was never enough. I had spent all of myself at work, my health started to suffer, my sleep was impacted, I was chronically tired, then I started having negative thoughts (What’s wrong with me! Why can’t I just be happy! Why can’t I turn this off! Just be myself again!) And I tried, over and over and over again, but nothing was working, nothing helped. I felt hopeless, lifeless, useless, suicidal. A good friend told me I was like the character John Coffey from the movie The Green Mile – Iingested all the of the toxicity andheld it like it was mine, and it was eating away at me from the inside out. I knew that if I continued to hold it in, it would completely consume me, and just like John Coffee I had to find a way to let it out or die.

I knew I wanted more – I knew my passion was helping people, I knew I was a caregiver, a healer, and I knew I could feel the energy of a room, or person within seconds of arriving and I knew that helping and healing others left me feeling purposeful and fulfilled; connected.

This sense of fulfillment and connection led me to reflexology, a practice that encompasses all the aspects and qualities that felt meaningful for me. I began the course and I foundthat I had a natural talent for it, not only was I good at it, but that I also loved it. I love the one on one with my clients, I loved that I was providing a service that made a significant difference for people. Through reflexology I became aware of how much energy is shared between the client and the practitioner. This was something I felt I needed to learn more about.This led me to Reiki, and I was so inspired that I took levels 1, 2 and 3,Crystal healing and Animal reiki.

I know that my journey is not unique, nor is it remarkable in its singularity, and that many others resonate and connect with my story, seeing their own struggles mirrored.

I have been able to use the resources and teachings to help heal my wounds, I am free from depression, anxiety (most days), and the unfulfilling job. I love my life, and most importantly I even love myself!

My goal is to help each, and every client have a session that leaves them feeling relaxed, calm and better than what they did before we started. I want everyone to know that you are not your pain, your past or your ailments, you can feel good, you have holistic options to aid in your health care regime. You can love yourself and your life!

"I’m used to the Old Chinese way of treatment - no pain, no gain! Then I tried a reflexology session with Marcella. It was amazing!! I didn’t know treatment could feel so good, I felt like I was walking on clouds for days! So relaxing."

Immy Kassam
Mental Health Certificate

Immy Kassam

BA Criminal Justice
Certified Life Coach Practitioner
Professional Counsellor and Student of Applied Psychology

‘In your life’s journey, you are not alone. Today, we are more alike than ever. We all have a past, and we all have the present. We need to make the most of our experiences and move towards tomorrow.’

Immy’s background includes a 12-year career in Federal Corrections and Parole, Criminal Justice, Community Supervision, Addictions, and Mental Health. His experiences in law enforcement took a silent toll emotionally and mentally. In 2015 he chose to focus on his own mental health and that of his family. He took ownership of his own well-being, and for him, it was the best decision he ever made.

With many years of experience and examples of his own ups and downs, Immy is now providing a safe haven for men, husbands, and fathers struggling with the pressures of life as we know it. With two young boys of his own, leading by example is especially important.

We all need support and just as the mythological Phoenix burns itself and rises again from its own ashes, Immy believes that we are all capable of doing the same, with the right combination of support and direction.

“My purpose and mission are to guide men through their personal and professional lives and support them in their relationships with their partner and/or their children. I’ve been there, I’ve done that, and I still am! With everything going on and considering our new reality, everyone’s emotions and mental health are running double time. This is where I come in. I will provide you with Counselling and tools to help you overcome the past (this could be years ago or just yesterday), and Coach you with different tools to propel you forward!”

‘Rise into the present, with the experience of your past’ – Immy Kassam

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Immy for nearly 20 years, and what I can say is that he is one of the most compassionate, understanding, and level headed people I know. He has always been a good sounding board for me, especially when it came to navigating interpersonal relationships. He has the ability to reason with logic which helps people understand and work through difficult situations where emotions are running high. This is important because we tend not to look at things in perspective during heightened states of stress and emotion. Much like everyone else, he has gone through his own trials and tribulations, however, his resiliency is contagiously inspirational. He has navigated through his own ebbs and flows and can related to others who have/are going through the same thing. Everyone needs to take care of their mental health, and Immy is a great individual to assist those that require that help. He is a great listener and will offer up strategies to cope so that you can move forward with your life while coping with whatever struggles you are going through. I highly recommend visiting him."
