Vern Wakunick

The journey of health and wellness for Vern started a long time ago. At the age of 12 she fell from the back of a truck, then the back tire ran over her back. When she turned 18, her body started to fall apart. This is when she found Thai Massage, Yoga and Pilates.

Vern has 12 years of experience practicing Traditional Thai Massage and 4 years of teaching TTM. She studied at the Thai Massage Centre of Canada and in Thailand at ITM. She has her 200hr RYT Yoga training with Sunshine Yoga and studied STOTT Pilates. Vern uses all modalities to help people achieve relief from pain, injury, stress and mental fogginess. 

We need to reprogram that of which does not serve us, from our bodies. 

Instilling Wellness Awareness.
