Karen has worked with Sandra periodically since the early years of Touchstone Therapies. She is a registered Reflexologist since 1989, has studied kinesiology, physiology and business. With over 30 years of experience Karen is looking forward to continuing the legacy started by her mother. Karen specializes in Deep Muscle Therapy (DMT) and Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
Amanda studied under both Sandra and Karen to learn the modalities offered at Touchstone. As well, she has continued her education to offer other modalities to our clients. She brings positive energy and is intuitive of the needs of our clients. Amanda specializes in Dark Blood Analysis and Cranio-Sacral Therapy.
The original owner and matriarch, an RPN has been learning, teaching and giving treatments for more than 30 years. Sandra has passed on the business to her daughter Karen Cowan, and granddaughter Amanda Ripper. Sandra still passes her knowledge on assisting with teaching of Touchstone courses and fills in if need be from time to time.
Leesa's face is not an entirely a new one for regulars at Touchstone Therapies. She has been the receptionist since August 2022. She has recently joined the team as a therapist graduating from the Deep Muscle Therapy (DMT), Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) and Cranio-Sacral Therapy(CST) courses.
She also brings her experience as an Addictions/Harm Reduction Counsellor to Touchstone. She provided these services for 6.5 years in Kitchener working with ACCKWA (AIDS Committee of Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo and Area). During this time Leesa worked closely with the Canadian Harm Reduction Network and a variety of other agencies (provincial and federal) defining Harm Reduction Best Practices and Policies. Harm Reduction was in its relative infancy in North America at the time.
Leesa brings both academic knowledge having her BA (Social Development Studies) from the University of Waterloo and lived experience of dealing with addictions and recovery from them.
