Liz Christo, RMT is the owner and founder of Nirvana Retreats. She has been learning, giving and receiving Thai massages since 2008, when she discovered this ancient healing art at the Thai Massage Toronto studio on Bloor Street in Toronto, Canada. Liz realized quickly what a powerful tool Thai massage was for recovering from injury and increasing flexibility and body awareness. She was attuned to the Buddhist philosophies and ‘Metta’ (loving kindness) which allowed her intuition for touch and compassion for others to be expressed through this treatment. In 2009 – 2010, Liz took an extended trip to Thailand, where she immersed herself in the Thai culture and surrounded herself with talented Thai massage practitioners.
Upon Liz’s return from Thailand, she opened up a Thai massage and Yoga studio called “Urban Nirvana”. She brought the authentic Thai design to her oasis in downtown Toronto, with raised platforms, silk curtains separating the treatment spaces and artwork and music to recreate the experience of a traditional massage in a Thai temple. After 5 years of growing the business and treating her loyal clientele, Liz sold the business and in 2016, went to CCMH (Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy) for an intensive 18 month course to become an RMT. She specialized in hospital treatments for people with Continuing Complex Care from everything from motor vehicle accidents to spinal fusions and everything in between.
Liz moved up to Tottenham with her family and is excited to bring her passion for Thai massage along with her knowledge of the human body and it’s ailments to her new clients.
