Corrin Lee Hanke

Licensed Massage Therapist –  MA 61107964

With my son being the center of my life and love I am proud to give him an example of my strength, Cohesive Therapy is focused on a family centered schedule and environment that supports my well-being which transcends over to the healing work with my clients in gratitude and love. 

Therefore I am very happy to become a part of the Cohesive Therapy team. 

It is a perfect blend of treatment bodywork in a relaxing spa-like environment. My intention as a therapist has been just that; to create a relaxation experience along with effective treatment to assist the body into homeostasis and healing. I am a believer in the concept of Holistic healthcare and that the mind, body and spirit all contribute to the success of one’s overall health and healing journey. I feel passionate about helping assist others along their own personal healing process. 

I am a Reiki certified practitioner. Reiki is a form of energy work performed that has been around for hundreds of years and can be very effective. 

I have also taken many classes and am constantly learning nutritional support and detoxing aspects of diet, and what we fuel our body’s with at a cellular level. I work closely with a superfoods company that is passionate about removing harsh chemicals from our food supply, and not only in soil regeneration, but body regeneration support as well.

I consider myself an intellectual and a creative and always have been a hands-on learner. I was fortunate to have found an amazing massage school here in Vancouver called, BodyMechanics School of Myotherapy and Massage. Now I am able to use my knowledge and skills to help others relieve muscle tension, have chronic pain management, or just help unwind and provide stress relief and relaxation. Cohesive Therapy has integrated essential modalities to assist in just that.
