The One who takes care of you

Bozena Breznik Robertson, your holistic therapist


My name is Bozena and my hometown is Maribor, Slovenia. For the past 7 years I have been living in Fort Smith, Northwest territories in Canada. In this small town located by the Wood Buffalo National park and the wide Slave River, I came in touch with the wilderness and beautiful nature and the teachings of First Nations peoples. It has completely changed my life.

I grew up with strong and loving women and their stories, many of them made sense to me only later in my life as I had to experience life first. I have always been a very curious child and I am still in constant movement, seeking new opportunities that bring new teachings and adventures into my life.

Now being in my 50’s I am grateful for all my experiences that have enriched my life and for sure they made me wiser. Bringing up my two children has given me great confidence and showed me the importance of integrity and trust, a bond of a strong family. They are my greatest teachers still. 

Some 20 years ago I changed my profession and became a massage therapist.  As a holistic therapist I work intuitively and combine body massage with other alternative therapies, like using crystals, Tibetan singing bowls, and doing Reiki energy healing.  I work both with men and women.

In my last 8 years I am more focused on working with women in all the stages of their lives. I trained with DONA International in 2009 and became one of the first doulas in Slovenia. After moving to Fort Smith I was fortunate to work with the midwives at our health center and became a certified doula CD (DONA) in 2013.

In recent years, I have learned a new modality, The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® (ATMAT), which complements my work and enhances the support and teachings I am offering. All my trainings so far, especially being a doula and working with women has brought me to fully embrace the Arvigo® therapy and given me a sense of completion.  I want to offer this service to every woman I meet and to teach her self-care massage as I find being the core of taking care of your body and wellbeing as a whole.

I feel fortunate for being able to share my experiences and wisdom through my services keeping it as simple and light as possible.  Being human and laughing both about our little misfortunes and our happy moments follows me everywhere. I am very passionate about my work and I love what I do. It is my calling and it is entwined with the way I live.

Most of the year I live in Canada but every autumn I go back to Europe, to the UK and Slovenia. You can also visit me there. For this reason I like to think of myself as international travel therapist.

It is my pleasure and honour to be able to offer you my services and help you on your healing path.

Thank you.
