Hi I’m Lindsay Penner. I graduated from Wellington College of Massage Therapy 10 years ago (how did that happen?!) and owned Muscle Matters in partnership with Karis Penner for 7 years.

Now, I am thrilled to be here, working with Shyla and her previous team of Certified Body Sugarists, and bringing the Muscle Matters name back to life. I envision this as becoming more of a spa atmosphere, with hopefully modalities like esthetics bringing relaxing treatments like facials. I aim to continue to bring professional, quality massage and body care services to Steinbach.

Outside of work I love to travel, have an amazing daughter, great friends and pets, and love to do anything on the water, especially kayaking.

I’m Karla Friesen. I grew up in Ste Anne. I moved to Steinbach over 10 years ago. I met and my married my husband, Dillon.

I am currently in school to be a Massage Therapist. I wanted to start working with people one on one already, so I became a Certified Sugarist. Meeting new people and helping to serve their needs is rewarding and satisfying.

When I’m not at work or school I enjoy time with my family, doing yard work, Netflix or going for walks with our 2 dogs. I look forward to meeting you in the near future!

I’m Shyla Doerksen and I have been sugaring for the past 9.5 years and have been loving my career choice! The clients I
meet, the friendships I’ve made have made this experience the best!

I am a mother of 4, wife of a wonderful husband who brought 2 sons, 2 daughter in laws and 3 grandchildren to our marriage. I am fur mama to Duke.

I am constantly searching for the best products to use on our sugaring clients, and learning new techniques to make the process as quick and painless as possible.

We continue to strive for perfection and continue to give our clients the reputable service they
have come to count on.


Hi I’m Luisa, I moved back to Manitoba with my family around 8 years ago. I started getting super into nail art in grade 8 so when I got to highschool I majored in esthetics and I’ve loved it ever since. I still love to do all sorts of fun nail designs and little characters.

On my off time I like to experiment with nails, I am always testing new looks, techniques and products.

I have a turtle and two cats at home as well. I look forward to seeing all of you soon!

Meet Savanna, she is the first of what we hope will become a regular front desk and phone presence in our office.

You can find her Wednesday mornings taking care of your questions and handling our admin and cleaning needs behind the scenes.
