Kanako Koga , RMT


Kanako, originally from Japan, earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree in her birthplace and moved to Toronto in 2009. She completed a 3 year Massage Therapy Program at Centennial College and became a Registered Massage Therapist in Ontario.

Kanako has first-hand knowledge of the benefits of massage therapy since she required extensive care due to having been in a car accident when she was 18 years old. Her injuries included a depressed skull fracture and concussion, and suffered from a severe whiplash injury. Kanako was introduced to a massage therapist who devoted her time and energy to ensure Kanako’s full and complete recovery.
This experience triggered Kanako’s passion for learning about massage therapy. Today, she pursues a passion for becoming more knowledgeable in her field by improving her current techniques and learning new ones.  

Kanako’s techniques include Swedish massage, lymphatic work, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, hydrotherapy and rhythmic mobilization. She has also treated people with a variety of pathological conditions including ALS, post-stroke, respiratory diseases, fractures, arthritis, fibromyalgia and PTSD.  As a therapist, she is dedicated and passionate about providing the best treatment possible with patience and utmost care in every session.

Tinika Coleman RMT

Hi, my name is Tinika and I am a graduate from Centennial College. Since I was in High School I always knew that I wanted to be in a profession that was in the health care field. As the start of college drew closer, I was stuck between the choices of becoming a Nurse or a Registered Massage Therapist. I found that pursuing Massage Therapy was my true passion.

During treatment I use Swedish techniques, deep tissue techniques, myofascial techniques, trigger point therapy, lymphatic drainage, frictioning, PNF stretching, and joint mobilizations.Recently, in 2016 I have also taken continued education courses to learn about the use and benefits of cupping therapy for overall health wellness and the huge affect is has on the lymphatic system , detoxifying the body and fascial restrictions. Cupping therapy is a very beneficial yet a very different treatment from regular massage in that it uses de-compressive methods with lifting and pulling the structures creating space, rather than compressing the tissue. Also, I have been educated on the use and benefits of reflexology massage.  During treatment I always make sure to work within the comfort levels of my client and constantly check in with the pressure applied. Seeing the results and how much I help my clients throughout their everyday body stresses is greatly rewarding to me.

I enjoy working with the clients to achieve their goals and help incorporate the home care provided as best as possible to accommodate their everyday lifestyles.


I always have a positive attitude and I am very enthusiastic to meet new people and learn new skills while growing in this profession as a Massage Therapist.
