Keja Lake

Registered Massage Therapist

Keja was drawn to the study of Massage Therapy after her life-long enthusiasm for playing team sports provided her with enough aches and injuries to know first-hand the positive impact of various forms of bodywork and complementary therapies. This fuelled a desire to understand the body and learn how to keep it functioning optimally. In 2006 she graduated from Sutherland-Chan School in Toronto ON and became a Registered Massage Therapist. After many fulfilling years working in the heart of downtown Toronto Keja moved west with her family – first to White Rock BC, and then to Victoria BC. In 2015 she transferred her RMT certification from Ontario to British Columbia.

In busy and stressful times it can be easy to put ourselves at the bottom of the list. Keja believes that Massage Therapy can be a great tool to help re-set the balance and achieve a deeper awareness of your body and its needs. Whether you have a physically challenging or sedentary job, are a weekend warrior or training for a big race, are in need of relaxation, stress relief, injury recovery, ease from pregnancy-related postural changes or have any other reason for seeking Massage Therapy, Keja will meet you where you are today and work with you to achieve your wellness and treatment goals. She approaches each person and treatment individually and applies a variety of techniques depending on your preferences and needs. This can range from Deep Tissue and Myofascial Release to the subtle touch of CranioSacral Therapy. She aims to always keep learning new ways to assist the body’s innate ability to heal and enjoys expanding her knowledge and skills through continuing education.

Some highlights from Keja’s post-graduate studies are:
CranioSacral Therapy with Upledger (3 levels) and Robert Harris (advanced)
NISA techniques (Neuromuscular Integration and Structural Alignment)
TMJ (jaw joint) Dysfunction (for relief from jaw pain and headaches)

When she’s not working you’ll find Keja outdoors hiking, biking and paddleboarding with her family or in the pottery studio using her hard-working hands to shape clay into interesting, and sometimes beautiful things.
