Andrea Pierce, Founder

Andrea comes from a hospitality background, and has always believed in the holistic model of body, mind and spirit being connected. It wasn’t until her two-year old daughter was diagnosed with cancer that she became passionate about health and education regarding harmful ingredients in our food, homes and products we use on our bodies. Andrea only allows products into the spa that are safe for clients, colleagues and the environment. Calixica has become a vehicle for change regarding skincare education and helping people make small manageable changes to better their health and the health of the earth.


Tia Hass, Spa Team Lead

With over 20 years of business experience in hospitality management, Tia‘s passion has always been about connecting with people however it was not until recently that she rediscovered the true essence of this message: we are a part of a greater divine existence and it is the journey we are on that is most important, regardless of our point of origin. At Calixica Holistic Spa Boutique, Tia calls upon her management experience, intuition and love of nature to assist in the day-to-day operations of serving clients and the greater whole.


Linda Maracic, Holistic Body Practitioner

Linda’s interest in the body and how energy moves through it, led to her studying and becoming an instructor of Kundalini Yoga. She subsequently studied Jin Shin Do Acupressure, a discipline which uses the meridians and special connecting channels to balance the body. Linda is a registered Jin Shin Do Acupressurist and often combines key acupressure points into her massage to create a greater healing effect. A Spa Therapist diploma from the Vancouver School of Bodywork and Massage and training in Thai Massage at the International Training Massage School in Chiang Mai Thailand have broadened her knowledge and helped her to create a truly holistic treatment.


Megan Gerace, Certified RMT & Medical Qi Kung Professional

My journey into the healing arts began with a trip to Thailand in 1991 during which I attended my first meditation retreat. After those first 10 days of meditation and after completing 6 months of travel in a culture with compassion, wisdom and equanimity as guiding spiritual principles, I came back to Canada with the passion for finding what it would take to feel so relaxed and at peace during daily life.This quest brought Registered Massage Therapy, CranioSacral Therapy, and Medical Qigong into my life as foundations for understanding how the body is put together and how it flows with life energy internally and externally. Studies and practice in 7 Lotus Chi Kung and energy healings and meditation with the Training in Power Academy have grown and enriched my conscious awareness of life and love in my own energy field and in relationship with others. These practices have become the way to fulfill the need for personal wellness as well as the way to engage in the beautiful purpose of being of service through hands on healing and teaching.

In a session I assess for imbalances in the musculature,(muscle spasms or chronic tension), in the fascia or connective tissue network (in which old injuries are still remembered and held) and in the energetic anatomy (the meridians and channels housing the flow of qi through the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of being). It is with gentleness and a lot of listening that the session begins.

Respect and honor for the person and their tissues guide the application of the chosen modalities.Attention to integration and balance of the whole, body and mind, completes these sessions.It is a wonderful thing, this privilege, to be able to be of service to myself and others through these modalities, and I feel so grateful.
