Cynthia Martin

Registered Educator by Saskatchewan Ministry of Advanced Education

Instructor – Year 1

Email: MartinC@pcmt.ca

Cynthia has been practicing since 1995, when she graduated from the Northern Institute of Massage and the Western College of Remedial Massage Therapies in Regina. Her special interests are mind science, how our nervous system influences healing, homeostasis and our perception of pain, as well as the psychological/physiological effects of compassionate touch.

Being a bit of a science nerd, she was delighted to learn that mitochondria DNA can be traced back to seven subgroups and that these subgroups are related to each other. That means that each person is a cousin to each other (and Cynthia honours family)! She has volunteered in the community with the Multiple Sclerosis 150 Bike Tour, Telemiracle and various provincial and national sporting events. She has also volunteered for the Massage Therapist Association of Saskatchewan and the Canadian Massage Therapist Association in several executive positions. When time permits, Cynthia makes use of her B.A. in English (University of Saskatchewan) writing articles about massage therapy and editing for other writers. A life-long learner, she believes that each client teaches the practitioner something with every treatment.

Brenda Klarer

Registered Educator by Saskatchewan Ministry of Advanced Education

Instructor – Year 2

Email: KlarerB@pcmt.ca

Brenda graduated from the Northern Institute of Massage and the Western College of Remedial Massage Therapies in 1993. She began her career with a home-based business but, after a few years, yearned for the camaraderie and collaboration that a clinic setting would provide. Over the course of the next 18 years, she built a successful therapeutic clinic with a constant number of eight Registered Massage Therapists. She welcomed, mentored and supported RMTs from many different schools and backgrounds. Some stayed for over a decade while others, as their confidence grew and their client numbers increased, moved on to start clinics of their own. The common thread over the years was the desire to help her clients through massage therapy.

After nearly 30 years, Brenda is still passionate about the benefits of treating the body as a whole, focusing on the miracle of fascia and scar tissue release. She sold her clinic to once again work from home and looks forward to learning new ways to grow as a therapist while encouraging and mentoring others.

Janna Sarazin

Registered Educator by Saskatchewan Ministry of Advanced Education

Clinic Supervisor

Email: janna@pcmt.ca

Janna has been practicing massage therapy since 2001 – graduating from the Massage Therapy College of Manitoba in Winnipeg.  After many exciting years in Calgary, she and her husband decided to move back closer to family. They settled in Regina to raise their 3 children.

Although pregnancy and infant massage was always a special interest of hers; experiencing pregnancy and becoming a mother herself ignited a passion for supporting families as they journey through this particular stage of life.  So in 2013 she became a childbirth educator and focused her continuing education on prenatal, postpartum, and infant massage training.

Over the past 8 years her massage practice has focused primarily on supporting expectant and new parents, through specialized massage techniques as well as education, so that they can have the best, most empowered experience possible.

Her role as an educator and mentor brings her so much joy so she is thrilled to have the opportunity to join the PCMT family.
