Therapeutic Massage

Often recommended by a health professional as a component of a comprehensive treatment plan, therapeutic massage treats injuries, pain, muscle spasms and stress. It also can assist with decreasing muscle tone and increasing flexibility.

Swedish Massage

Widely used around the world, Swedish massage therapy uses several different types of strokes including a sliding or gliding movement, friction and kneading. The technique has demonstrated effectiveness in decreasing stiffness and pain for sufferers of osteoarthritis.

Myofascial Release

The myofascial technique consists of stretching and releasing bonds between connective tissue fibers and muscles. The overall goal with this is to increase the range of motion and decrease pain. Myofascial release commonly involves the utilization of tension in different directions, often conducted by rolling of the skin.

Deep Tissue Massage

In deep tissue massage, the registered massage therapist works to realign the connective tissue and deep muscle layers. The technique often can provide relief for chronic pain and stiffness in the upper and lower back, neck, legs and shoulders.

Prenatal Massage

Massage provided to a pregnant woman by a professional, registered massage therapist can safely decrease muscle tension, release stress and contribute to overall well-being. Massage therapy can help relieve typical discomforts many pregnant women experience, including headaches, swelling and cramping in legs, backaches and stiff necks.

Sports Massage

Athletes often use sports massage before or after events to lessen fatigue, reduce swelling and muscle tension, improve flexibility and decrease the possibility of injuries. A registered massage therapist can help athletes reduce tension and stress that often builds during strenuous activity.

As we are starting to gradually return to practice we have made new safety procedures and are following all guidance from the Ministry Of Health and our Regulatory College. Implementing these changes will limit our appointment availability.

At this time we regret that we will not be accepting new clients. With limited availability, we have disabled the online booking. If you are in need of an appointment please email or call us and we will forward your request to your RMT. We will continue to do our best with scheduling but are mandated to treat urgent/essential clients with priority.

We want to thank everyone for their continued patience throughout these times. 

Thank you for your loyalty and understanding. We wish for everyone to be safe and healthy.
