Katelynn Senior Practitioner

$75/hr Monday & Thursday (Toronto)

I have always been told that I have a gift for creating positive energy, and possessing the power to heal with my hands; so, when I first experienced Thai Massage, while on a soul searching adventure in Brazil, I fell deeply in love. I was studying yoga at the time, and Thai Massage was part of the curriculum.  I was drawn to the Metta, and encouraged to radiate this ‘Love and Kindness’ with my fellow classmates. Since then I haven’t been able to stop sharing that energy with anyone that will let me. Having traveled to New York on numerous occasions for various workshops in Therapeutic Thai Massage and studying @ Thai Massage Toronto with Master Practitioner Deanna Villa, I finally have all the tools to support my practice with extreme confidence and love. Combined with my extensive background in Dance, and as a Yoga and Pilates Instructor, I believe that Thai Massage is the perfect compliment to my practice and truly settles my soul. I’m now able to help those around me realize the benefits that blossom from this amazing experience. I look forward to every new client.  When comfort in a partnership is obtained, a trusting and lasting relationship is formed. I enjoy the art of healing, and feel very compassionate towards individuals who need a positive, uplifting, yet ultra relaxing session. I look forward to seeing you soon!



Irina Senior Practitioner

$75/hr Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday (Toronto & Mississauga)

My glimpse into marvelous works of the human body started 15 years ago when I took my first yoga class. The new understanding that the physical body, mind, and spirit are woven and working together, forever changed my perception and relationship with the body. Continuing the practice and teaching yoga for a number of years deepened both my respect and curiosity of the infinite wisdom hidden within each of us. Studying Thai Massage with Deanna Villa opened a new chapter on this journey of sensing, and healing. I am truly grateful to be a part of Thai Massage Toronto team and share this art of physical application of Loving Kindness with each person who walks into our doors. Namaste!



Dennis Senior Practitioner

$75/hr Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday Evenings (Toronto)

When I was introduced to Thai massage, I was immediately drawn by the compassion and kindness essential for this practice. As an avid hiker and rock climber, studying at Thai Massage Toronto has provided me with methods of self care to release tense muscles, improve range of motion, and relax the mind. I look forward to sharing these benefits & to cultivating a meaningful experience with you.



Karen Senior Practitioner

$75/hr  Weekday Evenings, 2 Saturdays a month  – (Mississauga)

When individuals experience life stressors, it’s important to take some time-out and give yourself permission to relax and heal. I would be delighted to be a part of your self-care and help you to “begin again”.

I have been practicing various styles of yoga for many years which has opened my heart even more to being a loving, kind person. A few years ago, I was in a car accident which led me to pilates as my rehabilitation program. From there, I had this unstoppable passion of learning more about anatomy and movement principles so I became a Pilates and yoga instructor. Teaching has awakened a strong desire to go further by helping people with healing. The experience of observing individual transformation has been a true honor. Thai yoga massage is a powerful therapeutic complement when working with clients by releasing muscular tension, improving mobility, circulation and balancing energy. Please come to see me and together we can start your transformation.



Nelson – Senior Practitioner
$75/hr  Friday, Saturday & Sunday – (Toronto)

My name is Nelson, I have been practicing bodywork for over 4 years such as Thai Massage, Shiatsu, Tuina and other modern techniques. I fell in love with Thai Massage when travelling in Thailand and ended up receiving it every day, sometimes twice. Thai Massage became my favourite bodywork modality right away! I also have a degree in Acupuncture, I like to integrate wisdom from Traditional Chinese Medicine into my treatments and provide insights. I really enjoy using my strength, sensibility and compassion to help others on their own journey to health and happiness. I feel deeply satisfy when I can provide the most beneficial session possible to my clients. From light pressure to very strong pressure, from slow movements and rotations to more challenging stretches, I work with my client to find out the best combination to get them back in shape. I would love to work with you and help you overcome your nagging injuries, pains, illnesses, stress and other acute and chronic conditions.

Director / Master Practitioner Teacher


Deanna Villa DNM Doctorate of Natural Medicine®
Director / Master Practitioner Teacher / Meditation Teacher

$150/hr Toronto & Mississauga

This beautiful journey and exploration of Thai Massage began in 1998. Training in Thailand, the United States and in Canada with Master Teachers with diverse styles and methodologies rooted me in this ancient healing art of massage.  Tens of thousands of hands-on hours in private massage practice evolved into my teaching style and the birth and evolution of our TMT school.  I always enjoy working with new clients, as the unfolding evolves during a session, exhale by exhale, press by press the tension evaporates, breathe elongates, muscles relax and a calm, focus returns.  This practice is always unfolding, expanding and fulfilling.  This is my life’s work.  I look forward to meeting you on the mat.
be well Deanna  :)
