Gecko Massage Story


Gecko Massage Story: Directly from the Owner, Shannon Carlin

In 1997 I started Gecko Massage Supply Co. I was a student in my second year of Massage College and supplies were hard to come by in Winnipeg. My little store sold products such as Stronglite equipment and anything needed in a clinic. I met a Chemist soon after and the reality of manufacturing our own products was born. We started making our own portable tables as well.

I look back and think, wow I was busy. After graduating from Wellington College of Remedial Massage Therapy, I opened Henderson Massage Health & Wellness Centre and subsequently opened a second clinic 8 years later which is also located in Winnipeg. I have been practicing Massage Therapy since 1997 and work both in Winnipeg and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where I met my wife. But enough about me, let me tell you about my company.

Gecko Massage Products is a small, little, fun business that is different. Gecko came to be out of a desire to start a massage company who’s core values are similar to that of a Massage Therapists core values; caring, dedication, trust and a positive experience.

Self Manufacturing

Gecko products are very unique as they are designed from practicing Massage Therapists vision. We design the products to perform in a way that only Massage Therapists and professional Body Workers would understand. When you are in treatment, it’s important the product you use doesn’t hold you hostage with stickiness, odour or having to reapply. Our products are so well designed, all your patient will tell you is that they feel clean and moisturized afterwards. All our products are, hypo-allergenic and break down in warm water. They are non-staining and have no scents or scent neutralizers in them.

It takes a RMT to know what products work, and why. We use the strictest ingredient guidelines to ensure safe, environmentally friendly products. Please put your trust in us to deliver a product that will make you smile.
