Our Staff

Hi I’m Lindsay Penner.

I graduated from Wellington College of Massage Therapy 12 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 along side a team of Massage Therapists, a Body Sugarist and a receptionist, 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.

Hi, I’m Savanna Hocaluk!

I am super happy to be a part of the Muscle Matters and Body Care team! You can find me Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s taking care of our front desk, social media and keeping our website info up to date!

Outside of here you could see me hanging out with my friends, hiking, fishing, making art or travelling!

Hello, I’m Abbey Bradley!

I was born and raised right here in Steinbach. I moved to Saskatchewan approximately 6 years ago, finished 3 years of college, received a bachelors degree and met my future husband all within those few years. My husband and I recently relocated to Steinbach to pursue new and exciting ventures; him in the trades and myself in the ancient art of body sugaring.

In my spare time I enjoy writing music, singing, creating artwork along with tending to the needs of my pets. I love to spend time out in nature and gardening is another passion of mine. I am elated to be a part of the Muscle Matters & Body Care team and look forward to building relationships with my peers and clients alike.

Hey, I’m Denise Peters!

I am a 2021 graduate of Wellington College! I am very excited to be taking clients here at Muscle Matters! My goal is to one day specialize in pre/post natal work, including both pregnancy and infant massage.

Outside of school and work I take time to enjoy my family and friends, be it over board games, meals or a cup of tea. I love to get out into the trees in the summer but prefer my heated apartment and Netflix in the winter.

But this is my passion, to heal people through my hands.

Can offer services in English or Plautdietsch.

Hi, I’m Joanna Penner!

I have always wanted to work in a field that helped others. Three years ago I graduated from the Massage Therapy College of Manitoba and was able to achieve my goal. I am so excited to be working at Muscle Matters. One of my favourite things about being a massage therapist is meeting new people and developing relationships. I am very passionate about craniosacral therapy and plan on continuing my education into this field of study.

In my free time during the summer you can usually find me on the water, wake boarding, kayaking or fishing. I also enjoy biking and playing at the park with my kids. In winter I strap on my skates or snowshoes. But most of the time I am just waiting for summer to come back.

Hi I’m Tiffanie Balcaen!

I graduated from Wellington college four years ago. I’m very excited to be returning to Muscle Matters and Body Care. I worked with Lindsay for two years as a student massage therapist when it was just Muscle Matters. 

Since high school, I knew massage therapy was the career I wanted to pursue. Over the years I’ve become certified in hot stone therapy, prenatal therapy, as well as cupping therapy. With my expanding skill set, I also plan to become certified in reflexology within the next year. 

I am the mother of two amazing little boys. Originally from St. Anne, but now resides in Marchand where my husband was raised. I absolutely love it here and enjoy spending time with my family and friends! When I’m not working, you can find me hunting, quading, fishing or doing anything outdoors. 

I’m super excited to be part of the Muscle Matters and Body Care team!

Can offer services in English and Française.
