My partner and I booked a couples massage with Jarod and Natalie, and I could not be more appreciative! They both treated us with such kindness and professionalism, and seemed to be very knowledgeable. We discussed preferences of pressure and location in depth before beginning and they were both able to offer great suggestions for us! They also checked in with us making sure we were comfortable at various times throughout the session, which I really appreciated! We walked out feeling so refreshed and relax, I had even dozed off during the massage! As an added bonus we got a sweet dark chocolate treat at the end of the session, which I loved! This team truly put a lot of care and effort into making their space as serene and peaceful as it is. Thank you so much Jarod and Natalie & thank you Heather for crafting such a wonderful team, and creating such a positive experience for your clients! Highly recommend & will be booking again!!

First time visiting Aspen Wellness Centre and had a massage with Natalie. One of the best massages I've had in a long time. Very friendly staff and easy to book online. I already booked my second massage and have been telling everyone about this place. Highly recommend.

Had a 90 minute massage with Natalie Mills and it was fantastic. She is very good at what she does, has a ton of experience (17 years +) and made me feel comfortable throughout the whole experience. Aspen Wellness is a very clean, warm and welcoming clinic. I strongly recommend both Aspen Wellness and Natalie!

I love the variety of services Aspen Wellness Centre offers. Jarod is a wonderful massage therapist. He was very polite and professional. I really appreciated the time Jarod took to learn what my concerns were regarding scar tissue from prior surgeries and his suggestions to help me. I will definitely be back!
