Corina MacRae

Registered Massage Therapist - MPC #7-8
info@thepomegranatetree.ca

Corina MacRae grew up in a town called Two Mountains, Quebec. Nice town but very small, if you blinked, you would miss it. She moved to Ottawa when she was 20 years old. She needed to explore life and have new adventures. Enrolled in U of O, worked 2 jobs and met so many new people and friends. She spent a good 5 years in Ottawa enjoying and experimenting life before it was time to move on and grow up. Her family got transferred to Toronto so she decided to move there as well. Started working in the transportation industry as both parents were also in the transportation industry. It was something that was familiar and she knew well growing up in the industry. After about 10 years she wanted something she loved and enjoyed for a career. So she decided to go back to school to become a Registered Massage Therapist (always enjoyed meeting new people and helping when and where she can). She graduated as a RMT and loves her new career with no regrets.

Corina is a big fan of hockey. She was never a Habs fan which that didn't go over well with family being from Quebec, rather she always liked the “Maple Leafs“ instead. She loves reading all types of books (can spend hours at a book store), but most of all her favourite is Historical Romance. Corina has a weird obsession with sharks. She never misses shark week. Through she 100% afraid and never wants to run into one but can't help wanting to watch and learn more about them. One of the most extreme and exciting things Corina has tried was skydiving on a bet. She is glad she did. It was the most amazing feeling free falling and was high on adrenaline for weeks after.

Corina's a customer service oriented professional dedicated to providing a high standard of care while building trusting and long lasting patient \ practitioner relationships. She's believes the benefits of therapeutic massage in relation to an improved quality of life and an overall improved sense of emotional and physical health. She recognizes the importance of working as a cooperative team member for overall success of an organization. She's a caring individual who ensures a relaxing and calm environment is provided to each patient to maximize the benefits of massage therapy. Corina areas of expertise is assisting patients by decreasing pain, improving range of motion, improving mood, aiding in circulation of blood and lymph flow, reducing muscle and joint soreness, and improving quality of sleep and most important help in decreasing stress.

Shannon Sutter

Naturopathic Doctor
info@thepomegranatetree.ca

Shannon is a licensed naturopathic doctor and a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. Before moving to Toronto from the United States, she completed her bachelor of science at the Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Biology and Ecology. She decided to pursue naturopathic medicine after being let down multiple times by the conventional medical system while struggling with her own health issues. A few dedicated adjustments to her diet went a long way in correcting these afflictions, and since then she has become a huge believer in small steps to solve big problems. With a strong background in nutrition, she believes in getting back to basics with health and encourages her patients to begin with simple changes. While at CCNM, she completed a one year clinical internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic while also spending a semester at the Parkdale Community Health Centre. She has a particular interest in endocrine and cardiovascular conditions and takes an individualized approach to each patient. Shannon has traveled extensively throughout the Amazon rainforest to study medicinal properties of indigenous plants and has a strong interest in botanical medicine. In her free time, she enjoys travelling anywhere warm, eating sushi with her husband and playing fetch with her cat.
