Arrow Lakes Registered Massage Therapy

Carley Cooke, RMT

Carley Cooke is a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) and owner of Arrow Lakes Registered Massage Therapy. She is also the clinic manager of Nakusp Integrated Health Inc.

Carley started her RMT career in Ontario in 2012. She moved to Nakusp in 2017 and opened Arrow Lakes Registered Massage Therapy. She has had a thriving practice here, offering patient specific treatments to all ages and lifestyles. She understands that everyone's goals are different, and believes that getting to know and manage expectations can help both the patient and practitioner better succeed at reaching those goals. 

She is so thrilled that the clinic grew from its tiny one room space to the facility it is in now, so that everyone in this community can have access to often life-changing therapies. Integrating, or combining therapies for success is something Carley really stands behind, and has been the motivating force to creating and now managing Nakusp Integrated Health Inc, alongside her private practice, Arrow Lakes Registered Massage Therapy.

Brittany MacCuspic, RMT

Brittany MacCuspic is a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) working part-time with Arrow Lakes Registered Massage Therapy. She works here in Nakusp, as well as in the Okanagan.

The complex interconnectedness of the body has forever inspired Brittany.

Hailing from a small coastal community in Northern Nova Scotia she began her educational journey at Cape Breton University where she studied Sports and Human Kinetics. Years later, in 2010, she went on to obtain her Massage Therapy diploma from ICT Northumberland College in Halifax. After working in Halifax for four years Brittany made the jump to a multidisciplinary Toronto-based clinic. While in Toronto she studied at the Canadian College Of Osteopathy which ending up catapulting her into a Yoga Teacher Training program. Brittany has done extra studies in Myofascial release, Thai Massage, Chapman’s Reflexes and Craniosacral Therapy.

With 8 years of post-secondary education in anatomy, physiology and treatment methodology, Brittany offers unique treatments. Pulling from so many different treatment styles lends the opportunity to develop specific plans for each patient. Her philosophy is simple: “It is my job to provide a safe space for the body to express itself so that I may see where dysfunction is holding. Only after an extensive interview, orthopedic testing and palpation can I see where the body is suffering. It is my goal to relieve the body of that suffering, to help regain its ability to properly circulate fluids so that tissue may heal.” Brittany uses some of her treatment time educating the patient on their dysfunction so that they may become active participants in their body's overall health and well-being by offering corrective exercises, movements and mindful cues to minimize postural dysfunction.
