Westwind Massage Therapy is owned and managed by Deborah Lusher-Yandt. She is a registered Nurse and received her B.Sc.N. from Ryerson University in Toronto in 1992. Deborah has obtained her experience and knowledge in nursing at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center and Leisure World (a long term care facility) as a charge nurse.
Deborah furthered her nursing education by specializing in Footcare in 2009, obtaining her Advanced Footcare certification from Georgian College. In 2013 she studied at the Michener Institute and received her Diabetic Educator Certificate. She has since worked in the community, both for an agency and her own private footcare business which is how Westwind Footcare & Massage Therapy was born.
While working as a Footcare Nurse she noticed the positive benefits of foot massage at the end of the treatment. This lead her to pursue an education in Massage Therapy, where she graduated from Georgian College in 2015 as an RMT.
Her passions include personal health and wellness as well as the environment. She enjoys downhill and cross-country skiing in the winter, kayaking and swimming in the summer.
