"Lori always provides a very relaxing environment and extremely soothing treatment."

Lori Ens has been treating me for six years. I see her weekly for massage or reflexology treatments.

I suffer from chronic hip, lower back pain and arthritis. Lori always provides a very relaxing environment and extremely soothing treatment. I have trouble sleeping due to the arthritis but on the days I see Lori I usually will sleep better.

The reflexology is amazing and no matter how severely my back is aching, she puts me to sleep almost midway through the treatment. Lori is a very sincere and caring person and it will be a pleasure to continue going to her for treatments in the years to come.

“Simply the best.”

I have been partaking in the benefits of regular massage appointments for about 20 years now with many different RMTs in the area. For the last 5 years or so it has been almost exclusively with Lori. She is very skilled, professional but also very friendly and puts your comfort first. I highly recommend SHINE. That’s the good news. The bad news is she finds pain you didn’t know you had lol. Don’t worry, she will fix that too.

"It is a privilege to have a therapist who loves what she does, is good at what she does, and who is committed to helping others first."

​I first met Lori during a mini-treatment session where she correctly identified, through foot reflexology, that I was having an issue with my shoulder. Since then, I have seen Lori regularly and always look forward with great anticipation to getting a treatment. Her facility is aesthetic, clean, comfortable, and very conducive to relaxation. During her treatments, I enter a state of extremely deep relaxation - something I have not experienced with any other therapists. Lori also offers excellent value for money. It is a privilege to have a therapist who loves what she does, is good at what she does, and who is committed to helping others first.

“I’ve never been disappointed in the work Lori does!
Well worth it!”

I have been going almost every month to Shine for 4 years for reflexology and massage. I am constantly amazed at Lori’s ability to hone in on the spots that need attention without me saying a word. I had tried reflexology previous to Shine but was always disappointed – I’ve never been disappointed in the work Lori does! Well worth it! I highly recommend Shine and in fact often hand out Shine’s business card when I think someone could benefit from Lori’s service.

“I highly recommend her amazing services – she is a wonderful person and practitioner.”

I’ve had a number of treatments with Lori – aromatherapy massage, hot stone massage, Bach remedies and Reiki. Each time, I’ve gone home feeling completely relaxed and renewed. I had a difficult pregnancy and found relief from a session in August with Lori during a particularly trying time. I highly recommend her amazing services – she is a wonderful person and practitioner.

“Go and try this wonderful treatment. You will not be disappointed. And it will improve the quality of your life.”

Right now I am on a specific cancer drug to treat multiple myeloma (cancer of the blood plasma) that I have. My oncologist always says about multiple myeloma: we can treat it, but we cannot cure it. The good thing about this drug is that it keeps me alive. But of course there are always side effects. One of the side effects is that it causes neuropathy in the feet. There is another cancer drug I could take, this one intravenously, but this also has the neuropathy side effect. My neuropathy is not too severe, just like the tingling you feel when you hit your funny bone. But not as bad as it is for a friend of mine, who feels as if she is walking on shards of glass. So I feel that, apart from the medical approach to my cancer, which is, blast the cancer cells to smithereens, I also need something different to help me.

The insert with my cancer drug clearly states it may cause neuropathy. Well, not so fast, there are other ways to treat this, and reflexology is one of them. I have been going to Lori Ens of SHINE Holistic for quite a few years, as I feel that the practice of reflexology generally is good for my overall health, regardless of the neuropathy or any other issues. It is my understanding that the pressure points on my feet relate to certain organs in my body, and by pressing on them, it sends healing energy to these parts. I used to be rather sceptical about this kind of treatment, as well as about Reiki, another mode of treatment. But let me put it this way: I was there for treatment yesterday, and when I came out, I was walking on a cloud. Well, I can’t explain it, but it helps me, and that is all that counts. 

Lori is a wonderful practitioner, very calm and peaceful, and you can just feel the healing energy emanate from her. Her treatment room is warm and comforting, and it puts you in a peaceful state of mind right away. All her beautiful decorations also put you in the right mood. 

So all I can say is: Go and try this wonderful treatment. You will not be disappointed. And it will improve the quality of your life.
