Vanessa Shynkaruk, RMT
Vanessa has worked in the Healthcare field for over 18 years. Starting out as a Medical Office Assistant (Sports Med. based), a Chiro/PT Assistant, and since has been an active part of the YEG Birth Community supporting families as a Certified Labour Doula since 2013.
She grew up in Sherwood Park playing competitive soccer, and was a regular patient herself for injuries or maintenance. She benefited so much from therapeutic massage that becoming an RMT had always been on her radar. She completed her 2200 hour program, graduating with distinction, from Alberta College of Massage Therapy in January 2021.
Vanessa practices from an evidence-based approach with a touch of holistic mindset. She is passionate about treating the body as a whole, and working together as a team to achieve optimal health and wellness.
Outside of work Vanessa is kept busy by her 2 kids, husband, and their big Saint-Berdoodle dog! She’s an avid vegetable gardener, plays women’s soccer, cycles, and cross-country skis!
