Plans include expanding the clinic space within Moksha Yoga Burnaby and the practitioner roster in fall 2018. Julia holds a Master of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Western Ontario and will return to clinical practice at Movella in 2019.

Karyn Lowther,

(traveling until September 2017)

Karyn graduated from Vancouver College of Massage Therapy and was inspired to become a massage therapist through her own healing experiences with sports related injuries. Karyn takes a holistic approach tailored to each patient’s individual needs. She believes not only in providing her patients with immediate relief from symptoms, but also in treating the root of the problem to help produce a long term solution that reduces pain and dysfunction in the future.


Andy McMillan,
Registered Massage Therapist


Andy is a graduate of the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy. His own past experience with injuries and office posture have not only influenced his decision to become a massage therapist, but also his approach to treatment and preferred styles. Whether the issue be posture-related, a sports injury or a stressful week, he is focused on the primary complaint while remembering to keep a big picture approach. Andy is committed to respect and support for his clients, both through hands-on treatment and personalized home care. Outside of the clinic Andy enjoys snowboarding, adventures with his family and listening to music.

Marijana Cabrita,
Registered Clinical Counsellor

Marijana is thrilled to be offering counselling services at Movella Massage/Moksha Yoga Burnaby. She has been practicing as a registered clinical counsellor for the past 15+ years in both Burnaby and Vancouver. She has practiced extensively with individuals struggling with trauma, depression, anxiety and relationship issues. By 2015 her counselling practice evolved into the deeply purposeful platform that it is today for her one on one work, workshops and writing – bridging together the science of psychology with the power of spirituality. Marijana works in more than one clinical space, as such it’s best to book with her via her website:


Each massage therapy appointment is individually customized. As experienced therapists, our approach to treatment is to address the body as a whole. We begin with a discussion of your case and treatment goals, followed by an assessment of the body and its function. We then treat the body by creating structural and postural alignment through deep tissue massage, fascial techniques, range of motion, joint mobilization, and client education. Our wellness practice ranges from pain reduction, rehabilitation therapy, stress management, preventative and maintenance healing.

45 minute $93 (Target Treatment)
60 minute $110 (Standard Treatment)

It was my first time here and Andy is exceptional! Safe to say the best massage I’ve had for my neck and shoulder tension. Great explanation of the physiology and the environment is clean. Online booking is a major plus and will definitely be back.

You Get What You Pay For

The quality of treatment is superior at this treatment center. The therapists are all very caring and intelligent individuals that provide the treatment you are in search of. I have seen 4 of the massage therapists here and each have given exceptional service with at home exercises, lifestyle and postural considerations to leave there with.

Movella is Great

Therapists at Movella are awesome. Nancy and Karyn are fantastic. Online booking is a plus. Nice location & atmosphere. Don’t forget to take your shoes off at the door as Movella is in a yoga studio.

First RMT Appointment

I was impressed with easy booking etc. I was also VERY happy with the information online which helped me decide to try Movella. I booked a short first appt as a meet + greet with Nancy. The Mosha yoga reception was extremely welcoming with a waiting area that put me in a wonderful mindspace. The massage area is fabulous + Nancy’s massage was exactly what I was looking for. I look forward to many more treatments with her over the coming years. Great RMT 🙂
