About Mase

Registered Massage Therapist

Mase grew up on the West Coast of Newfoundland, and since 2012 they have happily called Nova Scotia home. Originally sticking around just to begin their massage therapy career, they ended up staying because of our longer-lasting summers, endless beach days, and of course, its wonderful people.

Mase has practiced massage therapy in such capacities as multidisciplinary clinics, wellness centres, office spaces, mobile/in-home visits, and most recently in a nature/spa setting. They love and look forward to practicing every Tuesday morning with us at The Floatation Centre.

Along with their gender identity and expression, Mase’s treatment style and personality may also be considered fluid, as they are able to adapt to any given situation or experience as required to gain the best results.

One of Mase’s most important goals as an RMT is to help encourage regular massage therapy and self care for every/any body, especially those who experience body/gender dysphoria — you can be assured you will feel safe and respected within Mase’s time and space.

Outside of their practice, Mase takes their self-care pretty seriously with nature and dog walks, solo beach days, yoga, meditation, writing, and ambient music. “I love being sideways,” Mase says, “skate, snow, or surf!”
