STOUGHTON - Amanda Schneider has returned to her business, Knead it Massage in Stoughton, after taking a year off to be at home with her newborn son Lucas.
Schneider was born in Estevan to her parents Donna Rapp and Claude Leduc. She has an older sister Jayda and a younger sister Kristina.
She was raised near Peebles and Kipling but attended and graduated from Kipling School.
Schneider always knew she wanted to help people but also wanted a career with flexible hours so that when she had children, she could spend time with them.
She attended the Western Massage Therapy College in Regina from 2016-2018. She would need to learn about anatomy, physiology, medical terminology and hydrotherapy in order to be a registered therapist.
Massage is difficult on the arms, so they are shown how to build strength so as not to damage the hands through work.
Upon her graduation, she was expecting her first child and would have a baby girl, Addison, in December 2018.
Schneider took a year off to be with her new daughter and began her business in December 2019.
Schneider set up shop in Stoughton as she felt there were a lot of communities around the area and it would have good potential. She also does massage in Glenavon.
Knead it Massage has been back at it since the new year and is as busy as can be.
Schneider enjoys life and lives on an acreage near Windthorst with her husband Eric, their kids and their dog Charlie.
