About the Owner
Claudia Feuerstake BPhEd, RMT, WWHP, CH
Owner, Registered Massage Therapist, Counselor, Bowen Therapist.
Claudia is an energetic, motivating and inspiring person. She radiates these qualities in everything she does. Her life passion is helping people and her dedication, drive and commitment to getting the job done right is what makes her the successful healthcare professional she is today.
Claudia has a degree in Physical Education (BPhEd) from Brock University and is a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). Massage Therapy helped her understand the deeper workings of the body, how to address a clients needs and how to guide them toward positive lifestyle choices. In addition to that, her continued education in the Post Graduate Program at Centennial College; Workplace Wellness and Health Promotion has provided her with a tremendous amount of practical skills and experience in areas such as health promotion, social marketing, motivational counseling, program planning and management which she has applied to her working career. She is now a certified Bowen Therapist, this is a modality of treatment that took away her own long standing severe lower back pain, as a result, she wants to enhance her clients lives by providing this treatment to them as well.
After working in the health industry for 10 years, she decided to take her skills to the next level. It had become evident to her that both the mind and body were interconnected, so if she wanted to help people change their bodies, she would also need to empower their minds. This led to her certification in Counseling Hypnotherapy (CH). As a result, Claudia is now helping more people than ever to make the changes they want to make and to live balanced, healthy lives. Her life experience, post-secondary education and professional skills provide her with a solid foundation to help people attain the wellness they desire.
In addition to that, Claudia has been mentoring teenagers for many years. As a result she realized there is such a need out there for positive role models for teenagers. So, she decided to create the company PYIP (Protect Your Inner Princess) that addresses teen issues like bullying, self confidence, racism, self worth and body image. Claudia began to go to schools and classrooms and share her story of how these issues affected her when she was in school. She identifys with the children, then explains how she got through the tough times and how she turned her life around. Claudia’s approach is not only to identify the heart ache and overcome it, but how the overall wellness in ones life is what truly benefits an individual. Our children are tomorrow’s future, her goal is to set them up for success!
Claudia enjoys spending time with her family and friends, as well as her two dogs, Sophie and Mini. She enjoys traveling, watching movies and spending time with the love of her life Darren, who is her biggest supporter and best friend. She is currently writing a book, and has completed a screenplay for a feature film. The movie is based on a love story, the strength of woman and how substance abuse can ruin it all. Claudia is searching for the right production company to take on the project.
