Darcie Whitfield

Darcie pursued a career in massage therapy after recovering from a sports injury. She has since made it her lifelong goal to help others manage their chronic pain. Adding skincare to her list of skills seemed like a natural progression to help her clients achieve optimum health and wellbeing in an otherwise stressful world. When she isn’t at work, you will find Darcie and her dog Bear outside hiking and camping with their family.
