Massage Therapy Treatment
Traditional Swedish massage that our Registered Massage Therapist will tailor to suit your specific needs. Choose Massage Therapy when booking online for any of these types of massages:
- Therapeutic Massage: A deep, intense massage which is highly effective for alleviating headaches, soothing sore muscles and relieving chronic stress and tension. Your therapist will tailor this massage to suit your specific needs, using various techniques to reduce pain, enhance performance, improve range of movement and aid recovery.
- Relaxation Massage: This traditional Swedish massage uses a calming massage technique that eases stress from the body by calming the nervous system, reducing muscular tension and by stimulating the release of endorphins, a natural chemical in the body that induces deep relaxation. With stress under control, the body’s immune system functions better.
- Pregnancy Massage: Pregnancy Massage may help reduce or alleviate many of the common physical discomforts associated with pregnancy: backaches, leg cramps, constipation, swelling, fatigue, varicose veins, headaches, and insomnia. For women who must limit their physical activity during pregnancy, massage helps stimulate circulation and maintain joint flexibility. Our pregnancy cushions allow the mother-to-be to lie face down during the treatment, an indulgence in itself.
Acupuncture is a natural therapy that is used to improve well-being. Tiny, hair-thin needles are inserted into specific points along the energy pathways called meridians. Acupuncture is a modality that can be used safely and effectively along side of other techniques and treatments that are within a RMTs Scope of Practice. This treatment is not provided by RMTs during pregnancy.
Acupuncture treatments performed will be incorporated within the scope of Massage Therapy, and as such will be billed under your RMT extended health insurance benefits.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage makes you feel deeply relaxed and promotes you to let go of the stress that is held within your body. This massage involves the application of water-heated basalt stones of varying sizes to key points on the body, giving a deep massage and creating sensations of comfort and warmth. The direct heat relaxes muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with regular massage. Cool stones are used as a contrast medium to create a deep circulator effect within the body. This is a very cleansing, immune strengthening and relaxing experience. While the thought of cool stones can sound uncomfortable, they are actually a refreshing contrast to the heat within the session. This treatment is not recommended during pregnancy.
Cupping is a treatment where suction draws the blood to the skin and separates layers of tissue. This treatment is used to help treat pain, reduce scar tissue, and relieve muscle restrictions (knots) and swelling. As with many forms of therapeutic massage, the sensation experienced by the client varies and at times may be uncomfortable. The treatment will likely leave a mark on the skin however it will fade with time and will not be tender. The cups stay in place for several minutes and can be pulled along the tissue to address specific concerns of the client. Your therapist will often place the cups on one area while providing hands on treatment to other areas of the body.
