BLOG: Stress Free Zone


“Our body is precious. It is our vehicle for awakening. “- Buddha


Life is about  balance.  Everyday life,  work demands, motherhood (or fatherhood),  bills,  getting sick, house chores and what’s in between. Once in a while, it matters to just pause and close our eyes. We all need a stress-free zone where we  can take a break and recharge.

There is  a  hideaway  that  has become my favorite escape  if  I want a physical retreat.  A visit to my massage therapist for a full body massage.

Meet Mirtha, a licensed Remedial Massage Therapist.  I met her five years ago. Since then and until now, her touch has been a refuge.  While I go for the  therapeutic, swedish and hot stone,  hubby prefers the deep tissue. I love the smell of peppermint on  my neck and forehead and  the feel of  coconut oil on my  body.   Chirping birds and waterfalls as soundtrack make me temporarily forget about my routines and often lead me to  short power nap.

Mirtha customizes her massage  depending on what I feel everytime. Most of the time,  muscles on my shoulders and upper back are tensed because of too much sitting in front of the computer. Once in a while, there’s a bit of pain  on my thigh after  long distance biking or on my lower back due to prolonged  standing.





It is important  to go to a therapist  who understands your body. Someone you will feel comfortable with. Mirtha works around  a person’s  level of comfort. She keeps track and she cares. No wonder she has maintained a circle of regular clients who stick with  her  wherever she goes.

 Her place provides a relaxing ambience for  tired senses.  Newly-renovated and  tastefully decorated.







Mirtha welcomes new clients and does direct billing on major insurance. In my case, I am blessed that my husband’s work insurance  covers massage. Mirtha is  flexible in scheduling after work hours which suits me well.

Located at  the south part of the city, close to St Mary,  St Anne  and St  Vital  area, Mirtha’s sanctuary is family-friendly and has a ramp for people who have disabilities. She works in the comfort of a  massage clinic that she personally owns and manages–  St  George Remedial Massage Therapy, 262 St George Road.

Mirtha  is a native of Ecuador and  speaks also her native tounge, Spanish and can be reached at 204 997-6572.

“Love and take care of your body,  breathe and take things easy”–  she would always remind me.   Always with positive  encouragement and  gracious.   Muchas  Gracias  Mirtha!
