Celebrating our 10th Anniversary!

Wellness for the Body celebrated our 10th anniversary on Monday, September 21, 2015, and to commemorate this milestone, we threw a big party! We spent the evening eating food and giving away prizes to the friends, family, and clients that joined us

Through our silent auction and donations, we also raised $770 for the Milton and Oakville Human Society that night. These funds will go a long way in helping to care for the animals at the shelter, so thank you to all our local small businesses that donated the auction and prize items!

BOOK A MASSAGE - Support A Cause

Wellness for the Body celebrated its 9th year anniversary this September. Once again, we felt there was no better way to celebrate than to support a wonderful and worthwhile charity. For each one hour massage provided in the month of September, $1 was donated to The Oakville & Milton Humane Society.

This was our third year of what we hope will be an annual event for this worthwhile cause.
