“I have been an R.M.T for almost 7 years now and provide a variety of treatments such as general Swedish massage, hot stone massage and Indian scalp massage. As long as you aren’t opposed to messy hair, you will almost always end your treatment with me with a scalp massage, because well… It’s the best part! My favourite part of being an R.M.T is providing a therapeutic treatment in such a beautiful and inviting space. The best feeling is when a client comes to you stressed and sore and you are able to totally change their mood or day around. Whether it’s purely a relaxation massage or treating a specific condition, massage therapy has such an incredible impact on mental and physical well being. I can’t wait to see/meet you at your next appointment!’ – Erika Bowman

Nurse Cailynn Bateson
My name is Cailynn Bateson and I am Registered Nurse
with a bachelors degree in nursing (BScN) and a master’s degree in business
administration (MBA). I’m married, have 2 beautiful baby girls (5 years old &18 months) and live in the Brantford/ Paris area. Over the years I have had practice in a variety of clinical settings including Surgery, Emergency Department, Critical Care, Labour &Delivery, NICU and Community Primary Care; all of which have provided me with exceptional clinical skills. Throughout my career, I progressed into several leadership positions including Nurse Educator, Clinical Manager, Project Manager and Clinical Director. Education has always been a TOP priority to me and I truly believe that continuous learning and training is vital to maintaining patient safety, clinical skills and providing the best possible care for my clients/patients. I have obtained several continuous development certificates over the years with medical aesthetics services listed above. Medical aesthetics allows us to address some of our stubborn areas such as lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin while giving a natural looking appearance. Pair that with a PRP facial (or hair loss treatment), IV wellness drips, and a good skincare line, and you have the perfect treatment & prevention plan for aging.
