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.



Amber is a registered massage therapist, who specializes in a whole-person-total-care approach to release physical and emotional pain, with an emphasis on upper body, shoulder, and neck pain. She first graduated with honours in 2014, and has continued her studies to include many modalities, including craniosacral therapy, and hypnotherapy, which can help individuals heal faster and more completely by consciously and subconsciously, releasing emotional trauma that may be holding the body and mind back from healing.

Until recently, Amber has run her own local massage clinic and has had the opportunity to work with many amazing clients and healthcare professionals in the area. She has chosen to step back from that role to focus on her clients and becoming an author.

Amber enjoys finding creative ways to learns and grow. She always has a book in hand, loves doing research and is about to publish her first book. Aside from her passion for healing, Amber’s three favourite things in the world are her children. She also loves baking, cooking, nature and learning about health and nutrition.
