Sosbhini (Shobi) Korakode

Registered Massage Therapist

I am an extremely passionate osteopath who has been lauded on several occasions for my therapeutic touch. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to treating and healing. Since I am keen to put my best foot forward, I trained in different modalities like ayurveda, RMT and osteopathy.

I incorporate all my theoretical and hands on knowledge to help my clients recover from not only their physical pain but also their mental stress. A postgraduate from India, I have diplomas from Canada in osteopathy as well as RMT.

I specialize in deep tissue treatments without the discomfort. I am also comfortable offering relaxation treatments. I believe that quality treatment involves full attentions and commitment from both the therapist and patient. My goal is to meet each patient’s specific needs through one – on – one interaction during treatment session.

My approach to Massage Therapy and sport injury treatments is to promote health and wellness through preventative care. I look forward to helping restore people’s health and well being.
