Stephanie Langlais is a registered massage therapist who graduated from the 3 year massage therapy program at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2002. She has been in full time private practice since 2002, and is the owner/director of Quanta integrated Health in North Vancouver (formerly Soma Massage Therapy in North Vancouver). Stephanie is passionate about health and wellness and also became a Holistic Health Coach in 2014.
She is a member of the College of Massage Therapy of BC and was previously a member of the Massage Therapy Association of Alberta and British Columbia. Stephanie has several years of practical training in the management of chronic diseases and acute injuries, and the effects of long-term stress on the body.
The primary goal for each treatment is to decrease pain, discomfort and stress. Subsequent treatments are also geared towards increasing body awareness and addressing postural dysfunction for the prevention of re-injury.
Specific programs and treatment approaches are designed for each individual, developing postural realignment, restoring balance to the body, and changing long term patterns of tension.
Stephanie takes a holistic approach to massage therapy, which means the whole body is considered in each treatment. Better results are obtained by examining and correcting the source of the pain and dysfunction rather than treating the symptoms.
This holistic approach allows for balance in the body. Stephanie will not only do the manual therapy but she will also recommend self care tips and home care exercises.
Stephanie’s practice is diversified. Her training and experience enables her to treat all clients, from infants to the elderly. She blends various techniques into each treatment session depending on the goals of the treatment and the needs of the patient. Her treatments generally include myofascial release, swedish massage techniques, cranial sacral therapy, visceral manipulation, trigger point therapy, joint mobilization, and other osteopathic techniques. She is also does reflexology, hot stone massage and manual lymphatic drainage.
Please note that Stephanie has very severe chemical sensitivities if you are booking on her schedule please refrain from using cologne or perfume the day of the visit. If you insist on wearing perfume or cologne you can book with the other therapists. To begin your wellness journey, book an appointment today

Melanie Swithin Jones is an osteopathic practitioner and a registered massage therapist. She obtained her Bachelor of Science Degree with a major in human biology and a minor in general sciences from the University of Montreal. She obtained her diploma in Ostepathy from the Institute d’enseignement de l’Ostéopathie du Québec in 1999. She further expanded on her education by completing the registered massage therapy program at Vancouver Career College and became a registered massage therapist in 2017.
She believes that manual therapy is a field where one should always seek to gain further knowledge. Osteopathy and massage therapy are two modalities that interrelate very well with one another and this has given her an even greater insight into effective and in-depth treatment, through manual therapy.
She utilizes muscle energy techniques, and myofascial release to ease back, neck and joint problems. Her main focus lies in muscle chains to further release structural or postural pathologies in a non-invasive manner. She often incorporates elements of cranial therapy, aimed at readjusting the cranial sutures, along with visceral manipulation, designed to rebalance organ function, because I believe the body needs to function as a whole.
