Devin Beaudry, RMT

Hi my name is Devin Beaudry. I graduated from the Massage Therapy College of Manitoba in the spring of 2015 and so far, I am enjoying this second career after serving 35 years with the Canadian Armed Forces. The massage therapy training I received from MTCM has given me the tools in which to bring balance to the unbalanced. I have been trained in remedial massage, sports massage, advanced treatments, advanced myofascial and cupping massage. I also offer Deep Tissue Hot Stone Massage. As a massage therapist, the learning never stops so I have also been trained in the speciality of Facial Rejuvenation cupping massage. This form of cupping is likened to a face lift without the use of surgery, chemicals and or injections. It involves hot and cold stone treatment on upper chest, neck, and face, Cupping, and lastly a facial masque with anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Each session is 90 minutes long. My experiences thus far has ranged from clinical to sporting events such as the RCAF Half Marathon x 3yrs, Canada Summer Games 2017, and working with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers players post game. I am very excited to be practising here at Fort Richmond Physiotherapy and look forward to the diverse clientele that seek massage as a health care modality.

Shevaughn Thiessen RMT

I'm Shevaughn Thiessen, and I graduated from Evolve College of Massage Therapy, formerly MTCM, in January 2019. My passion for massage therapy can be traced back to childhood when my sisters requested back and foot massages. I believe every person is on their individual journey and needs treatment based on their individual goals. Since self-care is an integral part of this journey, I encourage and educate clients in ways they can achieve better health. My focus is relaxation while treating the area of injury or pain. Some of my favourite modalities are myofascial techniques, deep tissue massage, and structural therapy. I enjoy working with a variety of age groups, including children and seniors.

Since I have lived in Manitoba most of my life, I've learned to make the most of all the seasons and the wide variety of outdoor activities. I love canoeing, backpacking, and gardening in summer, and snowshoeing and ice skating in winter.

Learning is a life-long journey, and as a Registered Massage Therapist, I am committed to continuing education. I am fascinated by cupping and advanced structural therapy courses, which I plan to pursue in the future.

I am excited to be practising at Fort Richmond Physiotherapy and look forward to meeting you!
