Iain Cuthbertson, R.M.T.
Iain Cuthbertson is a native of Toronto. He grew up playing the traditional sports: ice hockey, football, baseball, but stopped playing the traditional western sports twenty years ago after being smitten by Tai Chi. He claims it to be the greatest 'sport' he's ever played.
When Iain isn't in 'Tai motion' he's pursuing academics pertaining to health and wellness. He graduated from Kikkawa College of Massage Therapy in 1995 and studied extensively at York University. Before joining Advanced Therapeutics he lead the Massage Therapy team for five years at St. Anne's Spa, a five star health resort in Grafton, Ontario.
Iain continues advanced studies in lymph drainage, cranial sacral, aromatherapy, and Thai Yoga Massage. He promotes good health through body work, exercise, posture awareness, breathing skills, relaxation, and a love of life.
Sheena hails from Glasgow, Scotland and is a much loved and valued member of the team. She is not only the kind voice over the phone and friendly face that greets you, but in many ways the 'glue' that holds Advanced Therapeutics together.
Sheena's years of experience running her own business importing and selling international artifacts has made her an administrator extraordinaire. Her world travel and natural warmth have given her a great understanding of people.
When not managing our operation or assisting our staff and patients, Sheena can be found going on monster walks, reading, catching live music, and enjoying local culture. Sheena is a passionate traveller, but we hope her path will always lead back to us.
