Prairie Manual Therapy


Gisèle Carrière, RMT, DipScO, DipOMP

Gisèle graduated from the Wellington College of Remedial Massage Therapy in 2002 and has had an active massage therapy practice since. In 2003 she specialized in pre and post-natal massage and became a Doula (birth assistant). During this time she has had the privilege of assisting in numerous births. 


Over the years her passion for manual therapy grew which drove her to take her skills to a new level. In 2021, Gisèle graduated from the Canadian College of Osteopathy. Her goal is to start incorporating her new found knowledge in osteopathy to her already established massage therapy practice. She is dedicated in evolving as a practitioner and in helping her patients find health.


Akosua Knowles, DipOMP, DipScO, CAT(C)

After opening her athletic therapy practice in Winnipeg in 2014, Akos enrolled in the 5-year diploma program with the Canadian College of Osteopathy, drawn to its respect for the interconnectedness of all body 'systems’ and its willingness to trust the Health mechanism within. In 2021, she defended her thesis on the topic of postpartum health, marking the start of her osteopathy practice.


In her clinic today, with gentle curiosity she applies both osteopathy’s “everything is connected” and athletic therapy’s “movement is medicine” lenses to support her clients through their unique health challenges. 

Tara Beckta, RMT

Tara graduated from Wellington College of Remedial Massage Therapies in 1997. This is where her passion for studying the human body began. In 1999 she specialized in pre and post natal massage and had the honour of supporting many families through their birthing journey. Tara continues her passion for understanding the human body in yoga teachings and various manual therapies. These include 2 years of osteopathic studies at the Canadian College of Osteopathy, visceral manipulation with the Barral Institute, craniosacral therapy with the Upledger Institute, and yoga therapy with Functional Synergy.

Tara’s treatments are a whole body approach because health and healing are achieved when there is balance in the mind, body and spirit.

Leah Moore, RMT


Leah graduated from the Massage Therapy College of Manitoba in 2013 (now Evolve College of Massage Therapy). For more than 12 years, Leah has also been a longstanding student of craniosacral therapy, pursuing her education with the Upledger Institute. Other recent studies include the Compassionate Inquiry with Dr. Gabor Mate, and first year courses with the Canadian College of Osteopathy. Leah’s further certifications also include myofascial release, TMJ intraoral work, prenatal care, cupping, acupressure and Thai massage. She may draw from any or all of these techniques in her sessions, supporting each client, wherever they are at. 


Leah approaches pain symptoms by not only assessing structural/physical health, but also by recognizing the somatic/emotional component of our wellbeing. This is why her practice is centered around tailoring each individual treatment to a person’s unique physical makeup, experience and needs.
