Meet Our Therapists

In September 1995, Susan Stewart Taylor and Geoff Astles decided to open their own clinic after graduating from massage therapy school. Now locally owned and operated, Tecumseh Massage Therapy Clinic has expanded to include 7 treatment rooms and 16 registered massage therapists.

We are committed to sharing good health, both physical and emotional, with our community. As Windsor, Tecumseh and surrounding areas have supported our business; we like to give back by supporting Make a Wish® Canada, granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
