The Candid Lymph Care Mission
I just started my recovery journey with Patricia and wow! she is so knowledgeable and amazing at her job. I feel so comfortable and confident in doing my post care treatments with her. Her services are so complete, from massages to compression to educating. It’s so important to have a practitioner who knows what they are doing especially when it comes to post care. I highly recommend her. It will make your journey so much easier. My body feels and looks amazing already and it’s only been one treatment! I purchased 12 and I can’t wait for my next session. Thank you Patricia :)

The absolute best massage for lymph drainage to help the body detoxifying itself. An amazing healing experience 10/10 stars Pat is amazing and knows expertly what she is doing in terms of helping with healing and pain management. Cannot recommend highly enough!

I was referred to Candid Wellness by another health practitioner to do preventative work after having had Covid Omicron a few months ago. It was suggested that I might benefit from lymphatic drainage massage to facilitate cleansing my lymphatic system of any potential residual virus. I was referred specifically to Patricia Van Poppel and was not disappointed. Patricia is extremely knowledgeable, also extremely skilled in her techniques, and very professional. She is warm welcoming and meets you where you are. She is a lovely presence and you feel in a trustworthy place with her. Her skill and care are exceptional. It is my intention to go back to Patricia again and again. I cannot recommend Patricia or this highly very effective caring technique for preventative self-care! Thank you so much, Patricia!

I cannot express enough how grateful I am to have found someone with such expertise in this specialized area in Calgary . If you're looking to regain your health and well-being after post surgery, choosing an experienced professional like Candid is absolutely essential! The therapeutic effects were remarkable. I experienced a noticeable reduction in swelling and discomfort, which significantly accelerated my post-operative recovery process. She also provide me with valuable guidance and post-massage recommendations, ensuring that I continued to experience the benefits long after leaving the session. Thank you , you are amazing !

Before my massage with Patricia, my body felt fatigued and achy, almost to the point of wanting to cancel. But, with Patricia’s intuitive and skilful techniques, I left feeling both rejuvenated and relaxed. Thank you, Patricia.
