Barbara has always been passionate about health and wellness, taking the first step to start her career by studying Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo, in Ontario. Growing up in Owen Sound, she was instilled with the importance of proper nutrition and physical activity. She loved sports and wanted to work with athletes to help prevent injury and improve their performance.
However, after finishing University, her anticipated career took an exciting turn. Barbara was introduced to new, different approaches to improving health when she travelled to Spain. She was instantly drawn to the natural methods of healing that considered not only the body but the mind and spirit too. Her first introduction to reflexology and massage started at a reputable resort in Andalucia, Spain, over 30 years ago, where they taught her how powerful her hands could be. The more that clients shared their positive results with her, the more she trusted her magic within.
Barbara's commitment to health expanded further when she adopted a vegan lifestyle at the age of 24. She was impressed by the research connecting plant-based diets to a strong immune system, and overall vitality. With her growing passion for cooking, Barbara started getting creative and experimenting with different delicious and healthy plant-based meals. Over time, she realized that this lifestyle brought her a new level of energy, mental clarity and overall happiness.
In 2013, Barbara faced a turning point in her life when she had a cycling accident. She fell, hit her head, and suffered a concussion that left her unconscious for at least 30 minutes. Despite facing ups and downs, Barbara made a full recovery after seven years. This experience reminded her of the significance of taking care of oneself, and she has since dedicated her life to empowering others to do the same through her holistic healing services.

You can receive Reflexology treatments or Plant-Based Cooking lessons with Barbara at Pure Wellness Owen Sound and Laser Therapy at the Wright House on 2nd Ave W.

All the knowledge that Barbara has to offer is put to practice in her own life when caring for herself and her family. She values natural, non-invasive healing practices through the use of pure whole foods and purposeful hands-on treatments. She chose this lifestyle to be environmentally conscious, increase her energy, keep her spirits high and live her life fully every day.
