Colleen Fraser has been a registered massage therapist in BC since 1986. Before that she received her B.Sc.Kin. at Simon Fraser University. As an avid learner, her career began with continuing studies in the realms of herbology, sports kinetics, and eastern modalities such as thermal therapies, shiatsu, yoga & ayurveda. She has continued to develop her interest into the profound fluid dynamic work of osteopathy and manual modalities that support the fascial, neural & lymphatic systems. She has evolved her skills as a practitioner and educator offering several continuing education courses for RMT’s and the public.

Ms.Fraser has deepened her personal self-care practice through gentle somatic movement therapies such as pilates, Qigong & meditative breathing exercises. These movement therapies have informed her passion around the wisdom of Ayurveda, an ancient medical system incorporating practical skills harmonizing lifestyle, activity and food choices.  In the early 1990’s, Colleen co-founded Vidaspas in the Fairmont Hotel, formerly known as the Spa at Chateau Whistler. Vidaspas is a multidisciplinary natural health spa in Whistler and Vancouver. She continues to offer corrective manual therapy and practitioner training & education. Ms.Fraser continues to live in Whistler, BC where she enjoys an active life with her family in the mountains.

Nourishing ourself, treating ourself kindly by honoring subtle messages in our body; all lead to cultivating a more supportive relationship with self and others. This expands the deeper wisdom for making right choices in our lives. When we know ourselves, when we’re in touch with the true needs, then we know what right action to take in our lives to find balance.

Only that which is always with you can be said to be your self and if you look closely and simply at experience, only awareness is always ‘with you’.”
