Meet Your Therapists
Andrew Keith, R.M.T.
Andrew’s massage therapy practice is deeply indebted to his work with stretch therapy and his background in philosophy. His work is therapeutic at its core with a focus on trigger point therapy, deep breathing, client focus, and deep muscle stripping. Managing client expectations while setting up both short and long term goals is an important part of advancing client health. Andrew has been a member of the Massage Therapist Association of Saskatchewan (MTAS) since graduating in 2006 and has been working with Body Balance Massage and Stretch Therapy since its inception in 2012.
He has attended intensive workshops in anatomy, facilitated stretching and stretch therapy. He has taught professional development and systems anatomy and physiology to new massage therapist in the Massage and Hydrotherapy Program of McKay Career Training and has a B.A. honours in Philosophy from the University of Saskatchewan.
While it’s important to focus on the client, it’s also good to know your therapist is taking care of themselves. Andrew is an active person, walking, biking and running everywhere. He swims regularly, and before or after work, he trains in boxing at a local competitive gym or he practices hot yoga in the same building where his office is located at Modo Hot Yoga.
Bri Descalchuk, R.M.T.
Briana has been a practicing member of MTAS in Saskatoon since December 2005. Since then, she has worked along chiropractors, naturopaths, acupuncturists and reflexologists. Beginning in May 2012 she began focusing her practice around the John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release Approach®. This therapeutic approach consists of gentle but firm sustained pressure applied to fascial restrictions. Focusing on myofascial release, Briana begins her work with a proper assessment that informs where she’ll work to address painful binding restrictions in the fascial system.
Briana's goal is to return you to a pain-free, active life through a whole mindbody approach focusing on alleviating chronic pain and improving range of motion. She encourages her clients to focus on finding the cause of their discomfort while also pursuing reduction of the painful symptoms. As John F Barnes always says "begin with the area of pain and look elsewhere for the cause." If you’re tired of being in pain and feel like nothing has worked, you may have been missing the myofascial cause of your pain. Briana will work with you to remedy that.
