Scylla Ocampo - Owner & Registered Massage Therapist
I was first introduced to massage therapy in 2003 when a friend of mine asked me to be her “guinea pig” for her Massage Therapy class. From then on, I was hooked. I became an RMT two years later graduating from the Massage Therapy College of Manitoba in 2005 with a 2200 hour training certificate in Advanced Remedial Massage Therapy. Upon graduation, I decided to backpack around Europe for 2 months before moving to Calgary (traveling is also a passion of mine). I built my clientele working passionately at several massage clinics then later working out of my home for 5 years. In 2014, my dream of opening up my own massage studio came up and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity, so I decided to take a leap! I started Masahe Studio in Cochrane to better accommodate my growing number of clients with the help of other practitioners. I’m truly humbled to be able to share my passion with my clients and be a part of their journey. I have been practicing for almost 10 wonderful years in the industry and have a genuine dedication to serving my clients the best care they deserve. I am a member of the Natural Health Practitioners of Canada (NHPC) and inspired to grow through continuing education, most recently Thai Massage Certification in Thailand. I look forward to seeing you in Masahe Studio and excited to be a part of the Cochrane community.
