Darlene Dicke 


It is my passion  now and the past 18+ years to provide for my clients a high standard of professional care in the health and wellness field of expertise.  "There is great value in taking care of one's health so as to have a level of quality that will provide longevity for your mind, body & soul".  

My health Journey was laced with sickness, depression, pain everywhere in my body, A compromised immune system, unknown allergies and  stressful  years. 

This resulted in years of research, naturopath's, & doctor's,   I often found it to be very discouraging but the tenacity to find solutions has resulted a higher quality of health and wellness.  The journey has provided me with insights that have helped my clients.  Since I was very aware of stressful living i wanted to design a massage session that would incorporate the whole body experience for others.  A safe comfortable space to let go of the worries and the pain.

  In 2003, I graduated from Mount Royal College as a certified Aromatherapist.  Continuing my career adding  massage, reflexology, manual lymphatic drainage massage and many alternative health certifications.  The use of hundreds of essential oils blended with carrier oils, lotions, bath salts etc.  has provided a strong sense of connective blending that I use in my practice  to enhance the experience and  provide solutions for my clients.  I also graduated in 2016 with my diploma Child and Youth Care worker from Vermilion Lakeland College this program equipped me with skills working with anxiety, trauma, and addiction.  Supportive education as a Certified Coach lends to round out my desire to provide solutions for the mind  body & soul  I look forward to meeting you one day either in a massage session or a educational class.

Elaine Urwin

Registered Massage Therapist

 I come from an agricultural background, spending many years in the purebred cattle industry. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Calgary, majoring in Political Science, in 1987. Marriage brought me to Vermilion and after several years of being at home with four children I entered the workforce again. I also began some long distance running at this time and discovered the magic of massage therapy for injury recovery. My interest in alternative health solutions was piqued and  I was drawn to massage therapy training as it was offered locally through the Alberta Massage Training school.  I completed the 2200 hour program in 2008. Every year since, I have completed extra training through many workshops, courses and seminars. I also taught the massage therapy program for the Alberta Massage Training school for three years.  

Massage therapy has been a very rewarding and interesting industry and I am continually inspired to elevate my knowledge and abilities. 

The most rewarding part of being a therapist is seeing people benefit from massage therapy.  It is a source of natural treatment that will assist your body in healing an injury or illness, speed up recovery time and overall enhance your well being. Whether it be treating an acute or chronic injury or part of your journey in maintaining good health, I  am continually amazed at the results that massage therapy provides.  I am committed to continue training and learning so that I can offer a multitude of techniques and modalities that ensure the most effective therapy for your needs.

I am also excited to begin some workshops that will enable you to learn techniques that can be applied as self care or shared with friends and family. Stay tuned for more information!

Stay well, hope to see you soon. Elaine
