Massage Therapy

Registered Massage Therapist’s Scope of Practice according to the Massage Therapy Act 1991 is:

The Assessment of the soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissue and joints by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or relieve pain.

It is with this in mind that our therapists, with caring hands, strive to help their clients. Many conditions are treatable with massage therapy. Several examples are:

·         Decreased blood supply, nutrients and oxygen of surrounding tissues

·         Lymphatic drainage to decrease edema caused by an increase of lymphatic fluid

·         Pain due to muscle tension and stiffness due to overuse or strain

·         Decreased mobility of contracted muscles

·         Joint stiffness and arthritis

·         Stress

·         Myofascial restrictions


Whether it is for relaxation or for pain relief due to an injury, we are focused on your needs.

This is done with a variety of services:

·         Relaxation massage

·         Friction treatment to remove adhesions from soft tissues

·         Reflexive techniques for joint therapy

·         Joint mobilization techniques

·         Lymphatic drainage

·         Deep fascial tissue release

·         Myofascial trigger point release


Health of tissues is a priority and after a health history review and careful assessment of the presenting condition, the therapist will determine the number of visits before a reassessment to measure the success of the treatment plan.  Home care instructions are given to improve the client’s condition which may include stretches, exercises or other specialized instructions unique to the condition.
