About Us

Meet The Therapists

Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it contributes to your health in a positive way! Massage therapy offers a treatment approach which relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our clinic provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to chiropractic care and physical therapy treatments. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, lymphatic (swelling) drainage, and a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Finally, massage has been been touted to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery.

Crossroads' "Sensational Soft-Tissue Squad" pride themselves on delivering professional treatments, that are effective and comfortable.

 


 

Rose Melnychuk RMT​

Rose Melnychuk knew she wanted to become a therapist many years ago, but life took a short detour with her getting married and having two strapping boys. Not one to shy away from a challenge, she started working towards her dream, graduating from the Western College of Remedial Massage Therapy in 2014. 

Rose is very dedicated to the therapeutic work she does for her clients. As long as she is making them feel better and getting them back to function, that’s all she needs!!  She enjoys performing Pregnancy Treatments, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, and Cupping. Rose has taken a doula course, and recently she took an interesting course in providing care for cancer patients.

During her down time, she enjoys spending time with the family, fishing, painting, and attending Rider games with her buddies.

Mary Boys RMT

Mary joined the Crossroads team in 2016 after working for 3 and a half years in a spa setting, providing relaxation massage and body wrap treatments. Yeah, we thought that was lame as well, and knew Mary could accomplish greater things in life. Mary has really enjoyed the transition from relaxation massage to deep tissue therapy and has adjusted well from a spa setting to a clinic setting. She appreciates being able to see improvements in her patients through a regular treatment plan! In her free time you can find Mary spending time with her dogs! Mary speaks Labrador and Terrier, understands but does not speak Rottweiler or Weimaraner. Mary is certified by MTAS and accepts patients for SGI, WCB and RCMP members!

Shelby Schwager RMT (On Leave)

Shelby Schwager's dream to become a ninja was always foremost in her thoughts, but she lacked the knowledge in anatomy and the finger strength to be really effective. To combat this, she attended massage college in Regina, finishing in 2017. When she is not hiding in shadows and thwarting crime, she enjoys running, being in the gym and spending time with her family. Not one to focus entirely on the martial arts, Shelby really enjoys working with runners to correct hip, knee and ankle injuries and muscular imbalances. Shelby is excited to be apart of the Crossroads team and meeting and helping new clients. Shelby accepts WCB, SGI and RCMP patients.

 


Tasos Panagiotopoulos​ RMT

Although Tasos has a hard name to pronounce, he is very easy-going! Soft tissue treatments are Tasos true passion, but his oratory skills and mysterious accent thrills audiences, whether he is discussing muscles, or life in the Greek islands. Tasos finished his training in 2019 at Western College of Remedial Massage and moved his practice from Wascana Remedial to Crossroads. Mr.Panagiotopoulos is studying for certification for Sports Massage Therapist (Sp.MT), as well as a Registered Trigenics™ Practitioner. Not one to sit still, he is working to attain a McGill Method Provider designation in order to treat difficult back pain cases. If all this is too complex, just change the subject to discuss Greek culture and cuisine. Tasos will accept SGI, WCB and RCMP patients.


Jaime Parrott RMT

Crossroads is thrilled to welcome Jaime Parrott to the team! Jaime brings her positive attitude and expertise to Crossroads, not to mention snacks for the lunch room! She has worked on the East side of Regina for several years, but decided to bring her soft tissue talents up to the sunny North West Regina! Jaime graduated from massage therapy college in 2010, and has been a member in good standing with MTAS since then, which surprises most of her family. 

She will accept RCMP and SGI clientele and welcomes her old patients, as well as new ones.


Adrian Roberto RMT 

Adrian Roberto is Regina born and raised. Before he came to Crossroads, Adrian worked in spas, but like his coworkers, he also heeded "the call of the deeper tissues."  He describes his treatment style as combining relaxation with deep therapeutic techniques and is very passionate in the healing art of massage. When not massaging, Adrian busts out his Lulu Lemons and  enjoys yoga, which helps him to be focused as he spends a lot of time with his family and his cat. In an effort to maintain neuroplasticity, Adrian can be found at other times playing video games and hanging out with his friends. Adrian's soft spoken and kind nature has allowed him to be quite effective as a Support Worker at Creative Options Regina (COR), another passion of his. Adrian has his MTAS designation and will accept RCMP, SGI and WCB clients and is accepting new patients.


Gabriel Croswell RMT

Gabe joined us in early 2020 right before the world went all pandemic on us. We are glad that he is back to work and building his practice here. A small town guy, Gabe grew up in the small town of Grayson, which we picked up right away, due to his Grayson accent. When not in the clinic, Gabe loves to be on the ice playing hockey, or playing hooky with fishing. He enjoys deep back and shoulder treatments and will always keep talking unless you tell him to shut up! (He told us to write that). Gabe has his MTAS designation, and has added SGI and WCB patients to his RCMP clientele. His mother is happy that this is the only reason he regularly is contacted by the police. Gabe is currently accepting new patients, even if you are not an officer of the peace.

 


Dawn Schroeder RMT

After some life altering events, Dawn decided in 2016 to make a career change. No, it was not Oprah going off the air that initiated the change, it was something different. She knew she wanted to do something in the medical/therapeutic field, and her love of helping people steered her towards massage therapy. Juggling family obligations and  putting her circus career on hold, she graduated from WCRMT in 2018. Although she dreamed of laying on the beach, she instead started practicing in the health care industry, at a couple different clinics in Regina.  They were more of holistic/relaxation atmospheres, and not a great fit for a therapeutically-minded gal.   Dawn knew she wanted a clinical setting, doing restorative or rehabilitative work.   The Covid situation allowed a hard reset or her new career, and helped her decide where she wanted to work and the type of people she wanted to work with. After much badgering from one of the owners, she moved her practice to Crossroads! Dawn has been a great fit at Crossroads, and we look forward to her sharp wit, her tips on Fantasy Football, and upcoming Dolly Parton Karaoke at the Office Christmas Party.

Dawn is certified in Jadestone Massage and upper body Rapid Neurofascial Reset.  Dawn is the proud mama of three kids and a spoiled golden doodle named Wrigley. Do not ask her about the dog, or you will regret it! When she is not at Crossroads you may find her listening to true crime podcasts, cooking, playing fantasy football (Don’t bet against her), watching the large streaming services, and watching Friends.

 


Josh Pollard RMT

By choice, Josh decided to be born in Regina. His caregivers then raised him here, as that seemed to be a logical progression of events. Even as a young child, Josh had a passion for movement and sport. He was thrilled when his Grade 2 teacher told him of Kinesiology Studies at the University of Regina, but was dejected to learn he would need to finish high school before attending. A wise relative (likely) told him that "good things come to those who wait," and in 2016 a Bachelors of Kinesiology was finally in his grasp. Over the past 5 years Josh has been working at the YMCA of Regina as a personal trainer, certified through the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP).  He loved the work, but wondered if there was something else he could do to assist patients recover from injuries, and maybe move better. He tried to find his grade 2 teacher on Facebook, but after he was stymied, he decided to use the next best thing: Google. His research led him to Massage Therapy, which Josh completed in Regina (by choice).

Josh joined Crossroads earlier in 2021, and we are quite happy with the therapeutic and relaxation treatments he offers our patients. He currently is registered through the Natural Health Practitioners of Canada, and can treat RCMP patients, with plans to finish his MTAS very shortly. He welcomes his old clientele from the YMCA, and is happy to treat new patients as well.
