ABOUT US

Devoted to Health

Visacova Santé Massotherapy was founded in 2019 by Heidi Theriault. The business initially operated as an in-home massage service; however, due to growing demand, it expanded and opened a clinic in Ahuntsic in March 2022. The expansion also brought in fellow massage practitioner Corey Festa, Heidi's business partner and son.

 

In 2024, Visacova Santé Massotherapy welcomes Ambre Gutierrez, an expert in Flexiotherapy, to their team. Ambre brings over two decades of expertise in artistic sports, with specialized training in contortion and aerial hoop at Cirque du Soleil's National Circus School of Montreal. She has practiced worldwide, including France, Mexico, and Canada.

 

Heidi, Corey, and Ambre share a passion for promoting healthy lifestyles and collaborate on holistic treatments for their clients. Heidi's medical background as a nurse, Corey's expertise in fitness and sports, and Ambre's proficiency in flexibility and mobility therapy create a dynamic and knowledgeable team. Their mission is to help clients restore and maintain their well-being through therapeutic, preventative, and maintenance Massage Therapies, as well as the new addition of Flexiotherapy.

 

Visacova Santé Massotherapy is the perfect place to begin your self-improvement journey if you're seeking a unique and holistic approach to treatment.

Ambre Gutierrez, 

Flexiotherapist

Ambre, an accomplished Flexiotherapist, brings over 20 years of expertise in the realm of artistic sports. Trained in France, Mexico, and Canada, Ambre honed her skills at Cirque du Soleil’s National Circus School, specializing in contortion and aerial hoop. With a foundation rooted in 17 years of ballet and diverse dance styles, combined with a five-year career as a professional contortionist and circus artist, Ambre offers a truly distinctive approach. Her journey took a transformative turn after a significant back injury, leading her to develop an innovative practice that integrates insights from her diverse artistic sports' techniques and personal recovery experience. Ambre's teachings are adaptable to various sports, injuries, and age groups, fostering comprehensive body mobility and flexibility through targeted deep muscle stretching and assisted flexibility positions. She frequently incorporates tension, activating muscles through flexing before releasing, resulting in enhanced muscle stretch and an immediate increase in reach. We suggest wearing comfortable and warm clothing for a session with Ambre, as her approach, reminiscent of Thai Massage, involves both on and off-table stretches. Embark on a transformative journey with Ambre, where her unique blend of expertise and innovative stretching techniques promises not just flexibility but a holistic approach to achieving your peak physical potential.
