Our Team

Massage Therapy


Katie Howard, RMT has been living and working in the Almaguin Highlands area as a Registered Massage Therapist for several years. She loves working and living in this growing community. She feels fortunate to be able to live here. When not working she is often found with her family in Magnetwawn. We are usually on the water in the summer or at the rink in the winter. 

Katie Graduated the Massage Therapy Program at CDI College in 2008 and has worked in multidisciplinary clinics in Burlington, Hamilton, Huntsville and now has settled in her own clinic space along with her team in Sundridge.




Miranda Carley, RMT spent her childhood & youth in Nova Scotia. Through adulthood she has moved from Alberta to Ontario and has settled with her family in a cozy Northern Muskoka home.
She has fully embraced life in Northern Ontario, stating that it reminds her exactly of her home in Nova Scotia. The lakes, the outdoors & cottage vibes are comforting even on the tough days.
When she’s not in the clinic she enjoys long walks with her dog, cooking, painting and building things with her husband.

A recent graduate of Mohawk College’s Massage Therapy program, she obtained an Advanced Diploma in massage therapy & has successfully registered with the College of Massage Therapists’ of Ontario. Miranda is also a certified RockPods Cupping Practitioner (RockTape Canada).


Jocelyn Witlox, RMT

I graduated from Lambton College in Sarnia, Ontario and have been a proud member of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) and Registered Massage Therapists of Ontario (RMTAO) since 2013.

Throughout my career as a Registered Massage Therapist I have gained experience working in a variety of therapeutic settings; working alongside many health care practitioners. I enjoy working with clients of all ages, customizing care for sport massage, relaxation massage and prenatal treatments.

I have found to enjoy providing a gentle approach to deep tissue therapy while also incorporating other modalities such as hydrotherapy, fascial release, passive stretching and aromatherapy to establish the most benefit for my clients. I have also had additional training in hot stone massage, and Indian head massage.

I enjoy spending my free time outdoors with my two dogs and taking time to keep physically fit as a massage therapist.

I plan on continuing to grow as a Registered Massage Therapist adding additional treatment modalities to accommodate the many diverse therapeutic needs of my clients.

Winter's love for osteopathy began in 2016! When she was first introduced to osteopathic therapy following a sports related injury, she was getting treated by a graduate and quickly realized it was improving her injuries, as she continued getting treatment she became more interested in how osteopathy was helping the body and was eager to learn more!

Winter started her osteopathic education at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy (CAO) in the spring of 2018, where she studied principle based classical osteopathy which has helped her gain a very strong understanding of functional anatomy, human physiology and osteopathic collective mechanics.

She is dedicated to providing outstanding treatment to her patients and finding the root cause of the problem to improve overall health opposed to treating the presentation of symptomology. Winter works hard to connect with her patients on a professional and personal level.

Her goal is to help maintain health, she works with her patients individual needs and requirements to help promote the bodies ability to self heal and self regulate. Winter strives to create a safe space for her patients to heal, she’s passionate about osteopathy and is excited to use her skills to help others!
