Sandra McLaren RMT
I am excited to welcome you to our new Pemberton practice.
After graduating from the Registered Massage Therapist program from the West Coast College of Massage in 2005, I moved to Pemberton and began working at one of the hotel spas. Since then, I have taken several courses, mostly in the field of Cranial Sacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation and Fascial Release. In 2009 I took a year off and began doing an integrative series with these modalities as the focus. In 2010 I began working at the Scandinave Spa. In 2013, I completed the Cranial Sacral Therapy Certification Program at Langara College in Vancouver, and immediately following my graduation, I completed level I, II, III Cranial Sacral workshops with the Upledger Institute as well as the level I Pediatrics and Obstetrics course. I am currently continuing my studies with Visceral Manipulation with the Barral Institute.
I offer Massage in Pemberton with Cranial Sacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation and Fascial release as my passion.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and three beautiful girls here in beautiful Pemberton BC, and I am looking forward to building my practice here in my hometown.

Laura MACMURCHY RMT
***Please Note Laura is curently away on maternity leave***
Laura is a Registered Massage Therapist and a Certified Athletic Therapist. She graduated from Sheridan College with a Bachelor of Applied Health Science (Athletic Therapy) Degree in 2012. After successfully completing the required certification exams, she then began her career as an Athletic Therapist. Throughout the following years she realized her passion for clinical work, which drove her decision to go back to school for additional education in massage therapy. Laura graduated from the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy in April 2018, and became a Registered Massage Therapist in November 2018.
Laura’s preferred style of work includes an orthopaedic approach where she takes into consideration any biomechanical issues and muscular imbalances. Her approach seeks to find the root of the issue, rather than chasing pain. She loves working with athletes and weekend warriors of all ages and capabilities, but she also appreciates the power of a relaxation massage in reducing stress in our everyday lives.
Laura is thrilled to have this opportunity to work in her hometown of Pemberton, and is excited to work alongside other highly regarded health professionals while helping locals achieve their health goals!

Julie Sickel RMT
A love for health and activity led me to massage for my own body maintenance and repair growing up. I graduated from Ontario’s Centennial College in 2003 and have been practicing ever since. I have always been intrigued by how the body moves, builds and breaks down patterns and how it can heal and hinder itself. These curiosities lead me to take further education in myofascial, visceral and joint kinesthetic therapy.
Since moving to British Columbia I spend my free time in the outdoors. I love Mountain biking, hiking, LOVE the snow and getting up the hill whenever I can. I found these activities help me relate to and create treatments plans for/based on my client’s lifestyles.
Also due to a love of women’s health and wellness, I attended Douglas College in 2015 to become a Certified childbirth educator (prenatal education teacher) and I have been a birth doula for 15 years.
