Massage therapy is both a recovery tool and a reward for all your hard work! Book a massage to get the perfect full-body reset. 

 

Our registered massage therapists (known as RMTs) understand the importance of feeling your best before or after a heavy training week. We specialize in sports massage and working with athletes of all types, and we’ll take your sport or activity into consideration during your appointment. Whether you’re coming off of an intense training week or just want to feel your best, we aim to help you get back on track and achieve your goals. 

 

We have two experienced registered massage therapists as part of our team. They offer Massage Therapy Treatments or Sports & Therapeutic Massage Treatments. Both treatment types are available in 30, 60, 75 or 90 minute session lengths depending on your needs. 

 

What are the benefits of massage? 

Massage has numerous benefits. If you are experiencing any muscle soreness, pain, or tension, massage can help alleviate these symptoms. Our RMTs use a combination of techniques to help release and relax overused, tense muscles and help promote relaxation. Massage can also help remove toxins that have accumulated in the muscles. 

 

Massage promotes circulation in addition to improving energy and alertness while lowering your heart rate and blood pressure. 

 

What kind of treatments do you offer?

Our massage therapists use a variety of treatments. Each appointment will utilize a combination of these techniques depending on your personal needs and goals, including: 

Soft tissue release

Soft tissue release helps restore normal flexibility to muscles and is usually used after muscles have been warmed up. This technique is especially useful when muscles become extremely tense. 

Lymphatic drainage

Lymphatic drainage helps relieve swelling around and encourage drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the heart.

Deep tissue massage

A deep tissue massage uses firm, slow pressure to reach the deep layers of muscle and fascia. Deep tissue massage can help reduce pain, lower blood pressure and heart rate, break up scar tissue, and rehabilitate injured muscles. 

 

Joint mobilization

Joint mobilization uses carefully controlled force to gently and passively move the joint in the desired direction. These techniques can help improve your range of motion and reduce pain.

 

Swedish massage

Swedish massage uses a variety of techniques including kneading, vibration, tapping, and rolling to energize the body and improve overall health. 

 

Trigger point therapy

Trigger point therapy helps soften muscle knots and reduce the pain associated with them by applying various amounts of pressure and stretching the affected areas. 

 

Cupping therapy

Cupping is used to stimulate the skin and muscles in addition to promoting blood flow. The technique uses headed cups to produce a suction on the skin. 

 

Myofascial release

Myofascial release is a manual release technique that focuses on the pain in the myofascial (the membranes that wrap, connect, and support muscles).

 

Active release therapy

Active release therapy is another form of manual release that helps with soft tissue restrictions causing pain and mobility issues. 

 

Sports massage

A sports massage utilizes a number of techniques tailored towards athletes. This type of massage will help prevent or treat injuries.
