 The Story

Shirl was Five years of age, when she was asked that all important question.  "What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?" And in all seriousness she announced to a house full of guests, that She was going to be.... wait for it, "A Play Boy!".  It was hilarious to all in attendance, but not to her, she scowled at them & announced she was going to bed.  What was in their minds, she will never know, but in hers,  was a lifestyle of travel, meeting people, recreation in nature, studying & making a living.  Or something close to that. 


The Reality at the time was the opposite, imagine a preschooler given up by her overworked Accountant mother & five school age siblings right after Potty Training graduation to be in the sole company of her father & other old wise Ranchers & Farmers.  This training involved a lot of listening to Moral stories, gossip & general visiting around cafe & kitchen tables, followed by helpfulness to insure an invitation for dinner next week.  All through childhood from early Spring until late Fall, she shadowed her father's nomadic trips between two farm properties, leaving her elder siblings behind to do the Farm-Work over the weekend at the home place, while they headed South, one hundred miles away to do Farm-Work & Visiting-work for four days before heading back.  This is where Shirl's Nomadic, Weekend-working, Being of Service Lifestyle was created.  Her Play was being of service; her Joy was in listening to others & her Friends were the Horses, Farm Dogs & Barn Cats. This is also where she intuitively learned how to massage, through the love & care she gave her animal friends.


James & Shirl met 31 years ago in their 3rd year of University, a year later James choose to join Shirl's quest.  Today they are Nomadic, Weekend & Evening working,  Release Workers, Spa providers & Workshop leaders; Living & Working in the Regional District of Vancouver Island; enjoying a lifestyle of Travel, Meeting People, Being of Service, Living Healthy, and  Hiking, Biking, Skiing, Diving, &/or Paddling and anything New, Different & Exciting, or at least Interesting that may come their way.  


Most Professional Massage

That massage was performed with a perfection we rarely encounter.  From the very start with an outstanding facial massage followed by a smooth, orchestrated flow of movements exhibiting not only remarkable confidence & in depth knowledge of tissues under her fingers, but also an intuitive ability to locate areas in need of special attention.  Lisa B. Instructor AIMT 2001
