Hi there, this is Silvia, here is a little tib bit about myself. I entered the world of Massage Therapy in 2000 after spending too many long hours in the corporate world. I did my training in Toronto, Ontario with over 2200. In 2002 after completing my massage training, my husband and I moved to Canmore (that’s is where 2Hands1Heart was born) where I worked closely with Physiotherapist and three years with a Chiropractor. We moved to Penticton for a short time where I owned and operated Crazi Springz Classical Pilates and Massage studio. When we returned back to Alberta, Cochrane became our home! Over the past 20 years I have continued to upgrade my training and I am certified in the following: Craniosacral Therapy
