Light Therapy

Using technology developed by NASA, the body's repair/ rejuvenation systems are kicked into high gear. Studies have shown this non-invasive application of specific wavelengths of light to targeted areas increases blood flow, providing pain reduction and a host of other benefits.


Reiki can help ease stress and tensions and can help support the body to encourage an environment for healing on all levels: physical, emotional, and mental.
This ancient Japanese technique promotes balance among all the body’s systems.

Massage Therapy

My most popular treatment.
Massage therapy can include therapeutic, sports, relaxation and pregnancy treatments. Appropriate for all ages from newborns to centagenarians, it promotes healing, reduces inflammation, and reduces stress.


This traditional eastern practice is designed to be effective in reducing tension and stress by activating specific points on the feet. Reflexology is also effective at facilitating better functioning of your nervous and circulatory systems.


Lifting of the skin by the suction of the cups increases the blood and lymph flow by separating the muscle layers to promote healing of the muscle and soft tissue while removing toxins like lactic acid. This is a popular treatment for those with active lifestyles.

Colour Energy

Utilizing the vibrations of colour along with sound and light, energy blockages can be released, resulting in better balance of all bodily systems. This is a popular treatment when dealing with trauma or emotional pain.

2022 Updates

My practice has moved to St Albert and I am now operating as Arbor Massage & Wellness!

I look forward to welcoming my long-time clients and new clients to my updated, client-friendly treatment room. 

Major benefits for you are off-street parking and fewer stairs to navigate. I look forward to welcoming you to the new home of Morinville Massage Therapy, now known as Arbor Massage & Wellness!

You are still welcome to wear your mask if you would like to. I care about your health and safety and will continue to wear my mask for the time being. I still allow more time between clients to sanitize all touch surfaces as I prepare for your arrival.

As always, I want your visit to be the most relaxing part of your day.

About Me

Claudia Ricard, RMT, CLT

I grew up in Switzerland, where I was trained as a registered nurse and took my training in massage therapy and foot reflexology in 1989. I have been a Swiss/Canadian Citizen since 1995 and created Morinville Massage Therapy Inc. in 1996. After operating continuously in Morinville for 26 years, I moved to neighboring St. Albert in December 2022 operating as Arbor Massage & Wellness. 

I am trained in relaxation, therapeutic and sports massage, using organic herbal oils. I am also trained in foot reflexology, reiki and colour therapy. I provide aromatherapy health products through the Colour Energy Corporation.

In 2021 I completed my studies in Photobiomodulation and am a Certified Light Therapist. I’m excited to offer this modality which has years of clinical studies and practical history as an effective way to provide numerous benefits including pain management, increased healing, increased brain function, and skin rejuvenation.

My clients come from all walks of life with different health needs. I will be happy to assess and create a treatment plan with you to assist you in the most beneficial way.

– I am a member of NHPC (Natural Healthcare Practitioners of Canada) formerly AMTWP, since 1995.

– I am a certified Light Therapist through BANHS (Board of Advanced Natural Health Sciences)

– I am a Reiki Master and have been practicing since 2000.

In good health, Claudia Ricard

There are massages and then there are massages. Claudia is definitely in the category of “then there are massages!” One would have to go very far indeed to find a more perfect massage therapist and healer. Combining massage, color therapy, tuning forks, and reiki I feel and look better than I ever have before. I have sent others to Claudia who absolutely love her and are very grateful she was recommended to them. Trust me, you will not be disappointed, she rocks!!

Me and my 9 year old son have both been here for massages, hands down best experience. Comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, Claudia was very friendly and knowledgeable not only did she help the pain I had in my left leg she also explained reiki and the energies happening in my son and was able to suggest oils to use on him!! I will definitely be back!
