Courtney Nickerson, Agricola Street Holistic Health

Gold Winner Courtney Nickerson, Agricola Street Holistic Health

Silver Winner Kelly Donald, Yogassage

Bronze Winner Tara Patriquin, One to One Wellness

If you think a massage is just a rub-down with minty-scented lotion, Courtney Nickerson is here to change your mind. She “uses a lot of direct techniques. It’s more of a therapeutic, deep-tissue style,” she explains. Translation? Your muscles will be kneaded like dough until they’re soft again. And once she’s flattened out that knot in your neck? “I work with a multi-discipline team that can get down to the real cause of the pain,” Nickerson adds, saying that corrective treatments (say, developing better posture, for instance) can keep the flare-ups from returning.
