Bringing about a deep sense of calm and relaxation was an important need of Sherry Olsen’s, the owner of Cranky Knot Wellness Centre, when she opened her business in 2017.
“My intention with the business was to tap into the senses and be able to have a patient feel like they have left downtown Vancouver and have entered a luxurious five star hotel,” says Sherry. That can be evident in the music heard, the soft sheets used, the scent noticed upon arrival, the hot towel service, and the heated tables. In addition, spacious treatment rooms and a couples room for side by side sessions are available.
Having been in the massage business for 20 years, Sherry wanted to offer a product or service that is unique, effective, and affordable for the community. Her highly skilled staff of therapists are true healers in their specialties, and offer patient-centric care. The therapists at Cranky knot are passionate about their profession, continue to grow as therapists, and are wonderful educators to their patients.
Cranky Knot currently offers Registered Massage Therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine with a Registered Acupuncturist, and a Body Worker who had been trained in Germany before moving to Vancouver.
The treatments offered at Cranky Knot reflect their desire to be unique, as some of them can only be found at their location. Other treatments offered at the wellness centre include the “Lomi Lomi Massage” which feels like a Hawaiian holiday, the “I’ve Got your Back” treatment that includes sea salt, moor mud, and massage, and the “Hot Stone Massage” using basalt stones from Tofino, BC. Guests that are carrying children are also offered pregnancy pillows that allow a face down position for ultimate comfort.
“Cupping, Tui-na, and Herbs” treatments are offered by their in-house acupuncturist. Using needles, these techniques are designed to correct blockages in energy channels and help to relieve symptoms like pain, allergies, anxiety, depression, insomnia, TMJ pain, fertility issues, skin disorders, hormone imbalances, and much more.
Cranky Knot provides services for holidays like the Valentine’s Day Couples Massage and the Sweetheart Saturday Side by Side Massage.
The wellness centre is now offering the Lomi Lomi Massage with 10% off of your first session. Visit them in-person at 315-900 Howe Street, or online.
