As someone who has dealt with chronic low back pain in the past, I know firsthand the incredible mental and physical relief that massage therapy has provided me over the years. The ability to give that same peace of mind to other people is why I love being a massage therapist.

Megan Kozak, RN
Registered Nurse, Clinic Coordinator
Bachelor of Nursing, Mount Royal University
The behind the scenes work at Massage Matters and treating patients in my private office POUT.
I love being a nurse because the skills I have acquired through nursing have made me a better business owner. Patient education combined with providing safe and effective patient care is a big part of nursing and those values are reflected through the treatments provided at Massage Matters. As a Registered Nurse working in the hospital I learned so much about organization, prioritization and providing a gentle bed side manner for patients, even when you are overloaded and stressed with a hectic work day. Organization and prioritizing are key for operating Massage Matters behind the scenes and although I don’t deal with patients at the bedside anymore, those skills have transferred over to the customer service aspect at Massage Matters.
Taytum is my favourite hobby! I feel so lucky to be a doggy mama to the most precious girl in the world. If it was up to me I would spend my entire days just snuggling her and coming up with even more nicknames for her : ) My secondary hobbies include beauty, fashion, and crime shows. I also recently started Bikram Yoga and am excited to see where that journey takes me.
I have watched almost every episode of Dateline NBC and will probably be a crime scene detective in my next life.
