Linda Mireault

Initiated in 1994 and certified in 2014, Linda masters the ethical principles of Reiki. Always looking to make a positive contribution, she began hatha yoga teacher training and successfully completed a 300-hour certification in October 2014 under the supervision of Hervé Blondon, the director of the Satyam School in Montreal.

She also has a certificate in workplace first aid and understands the principles of CPR/AED.

Linda took an interest in massage therapy in 2009 and, since then, has been using a variety of massage therapy approaches and techniques. She communicates the different techniques simply and establishes a trusting and respectful relationship with her students.

“Sharing my knowledge brings me great pleasure, I am grateful to be able to share it with you.”

Kayleigh Smith-Higgs

Kayleigh Smith-Higgs graduated with a DEC in Physical Rehabilitation Therapy in 2017. She is a member in good standing with l'Ordre Professionnel de la Physiothérapie du Québec. Since then, she has been working at a private clinic in Montreal focusing on helping patients dealing with car and work-related injuries, having taken a special interest in concussion treatment. Kayleigh developed an interest in massage therapy while still in school after she realized how rewarding physiotherapy was for her.

Today, she is proud to join the team at l'École de Massothérapie Adam, a true team!

Though she comes from a different background than most people who have studied body care, health and well-being, Mélissa’s career has still led her to work closely with professionals in this industry. As a commercial designer and general entrepreneur, Melissa specializes in developing spas, medical beauty centres and hair salons. She is also a public speaker, consultant and business developer who offers a constructive approach to professionals.

As an outstanding professor, teaching relations, sexuality, code of ethics and marketing strategy, as well as in anthropology of the human body and ergonomics, her expertise will help students to better understand their profession and better prepare them to enter into this field. She is a great inspiration and a remarkable guide, filled with knowledge.
