Deep Tissue, Therapeutic, Rehab/Sports & Stress Management.
Massage Therapy involves manipulating the tissues of the body with pressure or motion. Target tissues can include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Our therapists primarily use Swedish and Deep Tissue Techniques during the course of a treatment.
Deep Tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is beneficial for those who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, or have sustained physical injury.
Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. This type of massage has shown to be helpful in improving circulation, inducing relaxation, reducing pain and joint stiffness, improving function in patients with osteoarthritis, and reducing the aches and pains of pregnancy.
Peer-reviewed medical research has also shown that the benefits of massage include pain relief, reduced trait anxiety and depression, and temporarily reduced blood pressure, heart rate, and state anxiety.
In Canada only three provinces regulate massage therapy, they are British Columbia, Ontario, and Newfoundland and Labrador. In order to become a Registered Massage Therapist in these provinces, therapists must have 2200 hours of training and pass a provincial board exam. Our therapists have 3000 hours of training.
