BEHIND THE NAME - ALPINE STAR
My childhood was spent growing up in a small rural town in the South Okanagan. One of my fond memories as a child was hiking in the Alpine with my mother every spring in search of wildflowers and to learn about the wild flora and fauna. One of her favourite flowers to come across is commonly know as the Alpinestar; one of the first flowers to bloom once the snow has melted and the ground has begun to warm up. It was my mother that suggested that I use the name of a wildflower to represent my practice. She reminded me of the harsh cold winters and hot desert summers that flower overcame every season and yet it emerged every spring beautiful and delicately poised. A brilliant representation of life and the human spirit and condition and that of true resilience.
MEET CECILIA HAWK
Diving into a second career is always thrilling to say the least but a career that helps people live their best lives and inspires health, happiness, and well being is an incredible honour and a lifelong journey that I am thrilled to embark on.
My path has lead me to my new and exciting career where I can create positive changes in the lives of others. I have trained since 2015 at the Okanagan College of Massage Therapy, B.C. with successful completion of the accredited two year course as a Spa Practitioner; and now practicing as a licensed RMT, November 17, 2017.
My hope is to create a bridge that will make alternative therapy accessible for anyone that feels that they are limited by physical ability, mental capacity, time constraints, emotional barriers.
Following every treatment is the opportunity to discuss any questions about the treatment and any other findings as well as to reassess the condition and provide home care and modifications to daily living and activities that empowers the client to take control of their health.
