Meet Our Massage Team at
Fredericton Family Chiropractic: A Creating Wellness Centre

Chiropractic and massage therapy are two holistic therapies that share a common goal: to treat the whole person rather than symptoms through natural, hands-on, drug-free techniques. Call today to learn more!

Palma Dean – Registered Massage Therapist/Co-Owner

Palma's profile photoHi my name is Palma, I live in Waasis, NB with my two beautiful daughters Kelly and Palma Jane. We love the beach, coffee and hanging out with our friends and family.

In 2016 I graduated from Eastern College with a 2200 hour Massage Therapy Diploma. I am a current member in good standing with the CMTNB and ANBMT.

During my training as a Massage Therapist, I became more and more passionate about helping my clients manage their pain, stress and injuries with therapeutic massage. I am eager to share my expertise and passion with you.

When thinking of the future I imagined my very own business, a multi-disciplinary clinic that would help people attain their wellness goals! In February 2022 I had the distinct honour of becoming co-owner of Fredericton Family Chiropractic: A Creating Wellness Centre.

I perform moderate to deep pressure massage and tailor treatments to your individual needs. I offer therapeutic, Swedish, deep tissue, pregnancy and relaxation massage as well as trigger point therapy. I also incorporate home care at the end of each treatment to ensure the benefits of massage are ongoing. I look forward to increasing my knowledge through continuing education and working with each of my clients.

I am convinced that therapeutic massage is conducive to a healthy body and mind.

Christina Dunphy – Registered Massage Therapist

ChristinaHi my name is Christina.

I am an outgoing mom of four and a registered massage therapist of 15 years. I started practicing massage therapy when I graduated the advanced diploma program at Algonquin College in 2008. In my many years practicing, I have treated a variety of conditions and all body types. My goal in treatment is to always listen to my client and what their goals for treatment are and then to do my best to help achieve those goals. I strive to make everyone feel as comfortable as possible, and to provide a treatment specifically for them. In addition to practicing massage therapy, I taught the massage therapy program at Eastern College for a number of years – this was a great learning experience for me and something that I thoroughly enjoyed.

I offer therapeutic, relaxation, hot stone, cupping and prenatal massage.

I look forward to meeting and working with you!

Desirae Bouthillier – Registered Massage Therapist – Currently On Maternity Leave

Desirae's profile photoHi, my name is Desirae. I graduated from the Eastern College 2200-hour Massage Therapy Program in 2017 and have been practicing massage therapy since that time. I am very passionate, caring and goal-driven and I try to show that in the work that I do. I began massage therapy in order to help others struggling with chronic pain and have spent a lot of time working with veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces. My main form of therapy is therapeutic Swedish massage, and I make a point to provide remedial exercises and home care to my clients so they are able to prolong the benefits of each treatment in between appointments. My additional modalities include kinesiology taping, acupressure for migraines/headaches and therapeutic exercise.

Desirae parle français!

I was born and raised in Fredericton and am so happy to be back. Outside of work I enjoy reading, writing and learning. If I don’t have a book (or a coffee) in my hand you can find me outdoors or spending quality time with my family. I love hiking and everything nature and I try to soak up as much sunshine as I can so I can pass that energy along to everyone I meet!
