Raissa’s varied background includes many years of dance training, a university degree in theatre, and training in psychodrama. She has even worked as a “standardized patient” helping teach interviewing skills to medical students.

One of Raissa’s visions has always been to help create a more nurturing and compassionate society, through reinforcing the value of respectful touch as a basic need and right within our family relationships.

She strongly believes in the importance of expanding our movement vocabulary on a regular basis, having  also studied T’ai Chi, Qi gong, yoga along with many dance styles.

As a lifelong traveler, Raissa has a sincere interest in people, and especially what brings each client to her door. She takes the time to truly listen, and address her understanding of  their personal concerns - regardless of age, race, culture or religion or economic status.

Raissa’s practice serves the Durham region. She lives in Oshawa with her husband and two children.
