Marissa

Marissa Willard

Owner and Registered Massage Therapist

Marissa began her massage career in 1996 after attending the Foothills College of Massage Therapy in Calgary. At that time, Alberta did not offer a 2200-hour program so Marissa got the most available, 1000 hours. Massage therapy was the only career Marissa ever wanted and still, after 23 years she cannot think of anything else she would rather do. Over the years Marissa has taken numerous courses including LaStone Therapy, Prenatal Massage and Myofascial Cupping (which is by far her favorite!) and loves both therapeutic and relaxation massages and what they can do for her clients.

In 2003, she decided to take what knowledge she had (none!) and open Milestones Spa. After 15 years, she knew it was time to follow her passion of massage therapy and refocus her business on offering just that. Milestones Massage Co. opened in September of 2018 and Marissa couldn’t be happier with the switch. Now massage therapy is still part of her every day but so is working closely with her team to ensure they meet their core purpose: to create an unparalleled experience for both guests and staff. When she is not massaging, working reception or doing books, Marissa is at home enjoying time with her three kids, a ten-year-old boy and 4-year-old boy/girl twins and going on very short, slow walks with her 16-year-old Golden Retriever. Never a dull moment!
