Dr. Maryna Evans
After graduating high school, Maryna enrolled into University to become a teacher. While traveling to Asia during her first year of school, she soon discovered a passion for massage and acupuncture. She observed a culture where food and touch are the peoples’ medicine; where people lived a relaxed lifestyle with a proactive approch to health and soon fell in love. Most people in Asia practice yoga or Tai Chi after work, eat incredible dishes that are infused with healing herbs and treat themselves to Acupuncture and/or Massage to prevent disease. These practices are not just alternative medicines but instead, a traditional way of life.
After returning from her travels with new inspiration, Maryna decided to leave University to pursue a career of helping people through working with the body. Fast forward 8 years later and Maryna now has a successful massage therapy practice and has just recently finished her acupuncture schooling and she couldn’t imagine a more rewarding job – relieving a person’s pain and allowing them to feel their best is the most amazing feeling to Maryna!
Maryna graduated from the Foothills College of Massage in 2008 and most recently completed her Acupuncture designation at the Calgary College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Her goal is to combine Acupuncture, massage and cupping therapies to obtain maximum health benefits for her patients’. She specializes in, but is not limited to, deep tissue massage techniques and Acupuncture focusing on injury and trauma. Her past work with patients has included motor vehicle accidents, pre-natal massage, musculotendinous tears (tendonitis) and post-surgical scar tissue manipulation.
