Our goal is to provide you with a customized treatment plan to tackle the root of your injury and assist you in achieving an active pain-free lifestyle. You will be educated throughout your treatment plan, as we believe understanding your injury and proper body mechanics is vital to quick recovery and injury prevention.

We cultivate a community approach to therapy; fostering open communication with your doctor, physiotherapist, kinesilogist, and chiropractor, as we are dedicated to providing you with highest continuity of care.

Our Therapies

We are committed to restoring proper joint function, body mechanics, muscle balance, and relaxation. You will experience a combination of the latest specialized massage therapy techniques throughout your treatment, in our relaxing and refreshing space.

This technique is used to treat restrictions or specific areas in myo-fascial connective tissue. This may be the result of pain derived from trauma, inflammation or dysfunction. The term “fascia” refers to a connective tissue that connects all of our muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, joints, organs, and central nervous system. The release of adhesions or tension in the fascia reduces physical or trauma based pain.
A soft tissue manual therapy technique used to treat areas with decreased blood flow, trigger points, nerve entrapment and/or compression, and postural dysfunction. The goal of NMT is to achieve a balance between the nervous and musculoskeletal systems, resulting in decreased pain and dysfunction.

Commonly used, but not limited to, when treating:

* Back, neck, and shoulder pain
* Post-traumatic pain
* Whiplash and headaches
* Pain related to postural dysfunction

This technique is used to release muscle tension, adhesions (chronic knots), and scar tissue from previous injuries or trauma. A lack of blood flow and oxygen to a constricted muscle results in pain. Deep tissue massage allows for the release of toxins stimulating the body’s natural inflammatory response. This helps to loosen constricted muscles by reintroducing blood flow and oxygen circulation back into the tissue, alleviating pain.

*This technique should not be painful, but is commonly described as uncomfortable.

Trigger points are hyperirritable areas in skeletal muscle associated with a distinct nodule or a tight muscle band. Triggers points may cause localized pain or referred pain. Trigger point therapy reduces neuromuscular pain and increases range of motion by re-training affected muscles. This allows the restoration of pain free movement.
A manual therapy technique in which pressure applied to adjacent joint surfaces helps to improve limited range of motion, reduces pain, and lubricates joints increasing available nutrition. Mobilizations are achieved by applying gentle passive movements to the joints of the spine and extremities.
Passive stretching is used to increase range of motion and relax stressed muscle groups. This is accomplished by applying resistance to lengthen a shortened and dysfunctional muscle. The targeted muscle is in a relaxed state with no active participation from the patient. The external force is gently applied by a trained RMT, elastic band, or gravity. This ensures the correct amount of pressure is used to lengthen and restore optimal muscle function.
Specifically prescribed exercises that are used to strengthen and stretch muscles related to your injury. These exercises are designed to help maintain the gains made by massage therapy treatment. These exercises, in combination with massage therapy, will optimize muscle performance, posture, and retrain neurological path ways.
