Carlie Winstanley


Massage Therapy

Carlie began her journey in the Health and Wellness Industry in 2000 when she attended Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy (OVCMT) where she obtained a Spa Practitioner’s Diploma. After she attended The Canadian Institute of Natural Health and Healing. Upon graduation in 2004, she received 2 Diplomas – Natural Health Practitioner and Day Spa Practitioner.

In 2006 Carlie launched a business called Synergy Mobile Chair Massage and Body Work. It didn’t take long for the evolution of Synergy Massage and Spa. This was a successful mobile business until 2010 when she moved back to Vernon BC. She then decided to take the last step in her education and become a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). She graduated from the 3000hr Massage Therapy Program at OVCMT in 2011 and began building her practice in a clinical setting, know as Central Vernon Massage Therapy.

Carlie enjoys the out doors and taking her dog Nahele on hikes. She is enthusiastic, and passionate about flowers, and gardening.


See what some of our satisfied clients had to say:

"Her massage techniques are precise

Carlie is a professional Massage Therapist in every sense of the word. She sees the treatment and well-being of each of her patients as her personal priority. She is very thorough in assessing patient needs, and keeps good personal records of each, including any new conditions that may occur. She starts each session with a review of the patient's condition since the previous appointment and a discussion of any new symptoms. Her massage techniques are precise and she is aware of the effects as the treatment progresses. These techniques reflect an excellent knowledge of the therapy she provides. She is very personable and this helps the patient relax and benefit from her skills. The patient knows there is a genuine improvement after a treatment and looks forward to the next session."
