Massage therapy

 

DON’T LET ACHES KEEP YOU FROM YOUR GOALS

Our qualified massage therapist will work with you to get to the root of your pain. Massage therapy treatment is often recommended alongside physiotherapy and acupuncture, and can speed up the effects of other forms of therapy.

We offer following massage therapy services,

Therapeutic massage

In therapeutic massage, the aim is the manipulation of the soft tissues to treat any underlying causes of muscular pain. This technique may also be used to treat the nervous system. As a medically-oriented form of massage therapy, the aim is to address tender muscle points, areas of poor blood circulation, damaged or compressed nerves, or biomechanical issues like poor posture or repetitive motion syndrome.

Deep Tissue massage

Deep tissue massage is a focused, therapeutic massage that targets muscle knots (also known as “adhesions”) and specific problem areas in the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. Using deliberate, slow strokes or friction across the grain of the muscle, the therapist addresses chronic tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or injuries.

Prenatal Massage

Prenatatal massage is customized to an expectant mother’s needs but is most often used to promote relaxation. Since many pregnant women suffer from lower back pain and swollen ankles especially in the later months, prenatal massage is a relatively safe, drug-free way to provide relief.

Reflexology

Like having your feet worked on? The therapist uses finger pressure and techniques such as kneading and rubbing to promote relaxation and healing in the body. Reflexology is based on “reflex areas” on the hands and feet, whose energy is believed to be connected to organs and other body parts

Hot stone massage

As the name implies, hot stone massage uses warm stones. The therapist places heated, smooth stones on specific points on the body and also holds the warm stones while giving the massage. The stones are usually basalt (a volcanic rock that retains heat well).

RAPID NeuroFascial Reset

RAPID NeuroFascial Reset, is a new soft tissue, movement based therapeutic technique that addresses the central nervous systems role in alleviating tension and restrictions within muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.

Some of the conditions that can be quickly resolved with RAPID-NFR include:

  • Headaches /migraines
  • Back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shin splints
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sciatica
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Knee problems
  • Tennis/ golfers elbow
  • Whiplash
  • TMJ
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Bursitis Bunions and arthritic joints

What is it like to receive a RAPID N.F.R. treatment?

Each session of RAPID N.F.R. is usually a combination of examination and treatment. In order to provide the best treatment, the practitioner will use their hands to evaluate the movement of muscle tissues, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormalities in these areas are treated by combining direct tension with specific patient movements. Most painful conditions are treated within 2-8 regular treatment.
