JESS VILLENEUVE

 Founder, RMT, CPMT, Movement Specialist

Jess is a Registered Massage Therapist, CPMT & Movement Specialist,  and the owner of Same Stars Wellness.  Jess graduated from CCMH in Cambridge and successfully completed both practical and written certification examinations through the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario.

Additionally, Jess is a creator and instructor of continuing education courses for therapists and health care providers.


As a child, Jess was a competitive level gymnast, eventually leading to a life changing injury in the form of a fractured spine.  While undergoing her own  healing journey, she knew from a young age that her passion in life was to help others feel their best.  This passion has lead her to become a Certified Pediatric Massage Therapist, believing that littles deserve the same care as adults.

Being a migraine sufferer herself, Jess also understands the trials of living with chronic, debilitating pain.  She has focused much of her continuing education on neurological, movement and spine conditions.  Jess believes that no one should consider living with constant pain acceptable, and makes it her mission to have her clients living a full, and comfortable life.

Jess takes a unique approach to massage therapy.  She will work with you to set goals, find the root of your pain, and create a plan to resolve the problem.  It isn't just a basic relaxation massage when you're on her table; it’s about getting better, being better and taking back the joy in life.
