Jessica Ross RMT, RYT-200 [email protected]
Jessica Ross made the decision to attend CDI College for massage therapy in 2005 based on her life-long passion to make a difference in the lives of others. After graduating with Honours and passing her Provincial exams, Jessica began her practice in Ottawa, and then made the decision to open her own clinic in June 2010.
Jessica has built her practice based on the belief that massage therapy is truly an effective way to better health & well-being. Her treatment style is based on the philosophy that in order to treat the immediate symptoms, the root of the problem must also be addressed.

Jessica believes in providing quality, compassionate, and effective care, and is passionate about helping others on their road to better health & well-being.
