Lindsay Collins

Lindsay Collins, Massage Therapist

My name is Lindsay Collins. I worked in the oil field for over 13 years in Fort McMurray I did a lot of backbreaking work and I got tired of being sore and in pain so I made the career change to become an RMT.

I’m a 3000-hour registered massage therapist from Makami College with over 8 years of experience. I specialize in deep tissue, hot stones, and cupping. My goal at the end of the day is for my clients to live a pain-free and enjoyable lifestyle.

If I’m not in the clinic treating clients, you will probably find me on the farm where my family and I raise livestock. I’m always outside doing chores around the farm or just playing with the animals. And when I need a little break, I love to take my horses to the mountains.

I understand that life is busy, but we all need to take a moment and do some self-care so that we can continue to live a pain-free lifestyle. I look forward to meeting you and creating a treatment plan that suits your needs.
