Candice Verpaelst

Candice graduated from the Centennial College Massage Therapy program in 2005. After being a client of Bellesmere Massage Therapy for many years, she joined the team in 2018.  As a former competitive triathlete, Candice has firsthand experience with the impact injuries can have on everyday life.  Dealing with her own chronic injuries has led her to a career of health and rehabilitation to be able to help others.

Candice has worked in various rehabilitation healthcare settings providing a range of treatments to help relieve myofascial pain and stress. She has also taken her passion and motivation for this work to the classroom and has been teaching massage therapy for the past 8 years.  Currently, teaches at Sutherland-Chan School of Massage Therapy.

Candice had a family member who suffered from lymphedema, due to cancer treatment. Watching them struggle with this condition, Candice wished she knew more how to help and was thus inspired to expand her studies.  She was fascinated to learn about the specialized technique Manual Lymph Drainage and Combined Decongestive Therapy which treats the body’s lymphatic system.  She has since taken extensive courses in MLD and is excited to be able to help others who suffer from this condition.
