Types of Services

Therapeutic massage

Beneficial for: Stress, anxiety, depression, headaches, migraines, tension, chronic pain, sprains, strains, scar tissue, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, adhesions, contractures, nerve impingements, fractures, torticollis (stiff neck), dislocations, and surgery*.

Relaxation massage involves long gliding strokes, kneading, and deep circular motions to each layer of soft tissue. It also includes rhythmical mobilization, passive range of motion, and stretching techniques. Vibrations and tapping techniques can also help to relax or energize you. A relaxation massage is more than simply a luxury, it reduces tension, improves posture and range of motion, promotes circulation of blood and lymph flow, prevents injury, maintains joint health, and decreases muscle pain and discomfort caused by everyday stresses and activities.

Deep tissue massage uses little or no lotion to access deeper layers of soft tissue and joints structures. Your therapist will work within your pain tolerance as long as you can still comfortably breath through the massage. This type of massage provide relief from long standing or acute injuries such as scar tissue, repetitive strain injuries, frozen shoulder, and adhesions which may be caused by muscle knots that have been left untreated for years.

If your pain is caused by soft tissue dysfunction, there is a good chance that massage therapy can help alleviate it completely*. If the cause is structural, systemic, progressive, psychological or undiagnosed, massage can provide temporary relief of many of the symptoms associated with such conditions*. When there is an abnormal function in your body, your soft tissue and joints respond to the pain causing additional pain and discomfort that can be reduced with massage*.


Deep tissue massage

Your body is going through a lot and massage can help reduce the pain and discomfort from some of the symptoms associated with the changes your body is going through*. Therapeutic massage can reduce the stress and anxiety that comes with the major life changes you are experiencing. Unexpected or high risk pregnancies create additional stress and anxiety that can be managed with massage therapy in conjunction with other healthcare interventions. Prenatal massage can help prepare your muscles and joints for the birthing process*. In addition to prenatal massage, we offer perinatal (during labour and delivery), and post natal (after delivery) massage as your body returns to its normal function following the big event.
