Alex Mayr-Landrecht, who prefers to go by Alex Mayr, is a Registered Massage
Therapist living and working in the Shawinigan Lake area. Alex graduated from the West Coast
College of Massage Therapy in April 2012. Upon graduation, she earned the first-place award
for the Massage Therapist Association’s annual clinical case report competition. After graduation
and completion of her RMT registration exams, Alex massaged in Victoria B.C. and took a
variety of continuing education courses to further her knowledge of Massage Therapy over the
years. These included yoga-based courses, Thai massage courses, anatomy/kinesiology courses,
and perinatal courses. Alex developed a preferred area of practice for perinatal treatments but
enjoys working with people from all walks of life.
For the last few years, Alex has taken some time off from massage and has been
focussing on her academic goals as well as her love of traveling. Alex has been finishing her
bachelor’s degree in health science and is only a few courses away from completion. She also
recently completed an advanced diploma program in Teaching English to Speakers of Other
Languages. Alex travels as often as possible, usually to Asia, and has solidified a love for Japan.
Prior to COVID-19, she was supposed to be studying abroad in Japan for the year of 2020 and
still hopes this may be possible in the near future. When Alex isn’t in school or with patients, she
enjoys snowboarding, dancing, and perfecting her new home that she recently purchased with
her partner in Shawnigan.
Although the pursuit of her bachelor’s degree and obtaining her certification in TESOL
have been, and continue to be, exhilarating, Alex is excited to be returning to her first love of
massage. Alex prides herself on providing patient-centred care for all of her patients. She loves
nothing more than to see patients take pride in being an autonomous part of their own health
care. She looks forward to creating a therapeutic environment for her new patients of Shawnigan
where both practitioner and patient can work together: partners in the pursuit of each patient’s
individual health goals.
We look forward to you booking in for a treatment today and experiencing for yourself
the powerful therapeutic benefits of Massage Therapy with Alex Mayr as your Registered
