Our Registered Massage Therapy Services

We offer various massage therapy services designed to address the specific needs of each client. By tending to your body through our massages, our registered therapist can help you address a variety of physical conditions resulting from muscle pain or stiffness. This will not only alleviate the pain but will also have relaxing benefits for the mind.

  • Swedish Massage
    Our Swedish massage improves overall health, including blood circulation, immunity, and mood. It also addresses concerns such as headaches, joint pain, depression, anxiety, stress, and chronic pain. The five different massage techniques we use are percussion, kneading, vibration, tapping, and rolling. Intensity levels vary to cater to your individual needs.
  • Deep Tissue Massage
    Our deep tissue massage is more focused on pain relief and stiffness as opposed to relaxation. It is commonly used in sports injuries and chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, sciatica, tennis elbow, and plantar fasciitis. The massage applies intense pressure to target the inner muscle layers and connective tissues.
  • Lymphatic Drainage Massage
    Our lymphatic drainage massage is an advanced massage therapy that is useful when the lymphatic system is not functioning optimally. It helps with blood circulation, fluid balance, and immunity. Different massage techniques are used to direct lymph fluid through the lymph nodes and tissues. It can be used in conditions like lymphedema, fibromyalgia, and arthritis.
  • Prenatal Massage
    Pregnancy has a huge physical and mental impact on the body. Our prenatal massage gently soothes sore muscles. Techniques from Swedish massage, myofascial release therapy, and craniosacral therapy are used. It can result in better sleep and less labour pain. Additionally, there are mental health benefits such as reduced stress, anxiety, and depression.
  • Relaxation Massage
    Our relaxation massage focuses on reducing stress and muscle tension and encouraging overall relaxation. It elevates mood and improves circulation while being gentle on the body. It is an ideal option to relieve everyday stress or in between training sessions, which will ultimately lower the risk of injury, also here we have more answers to your frequent questions.

How Effective is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is a powerful tool in health and wellness. There are so many techniques available that address a wide variety of concerns, both physical and mental. It can be used as a standalone treatment or in combination with others, making it a non-invasive, bespoke therapeutic option.

Several hormonal and neurotransmitter responses are triggered by massages. These lower the levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) while raising serotonin and dopamine levels (the happiness and reward neurotransmitters) respectively.

When serotonin and dopamine levels are increased, the body relaxes. In this state, it can produce more melatonin – the sleep hormone. By reducing pain and tension, you are better able to fall and stay asleep.

Tense muscles cause stiffness, discomfort, and pain. Massaging the affected muscles loosens and stretches the fibres, making them flexible again. The massage also increases blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients to the region, which accelerates the healing process and alleviates pain.

A massage relaxes the muscles, including those that are tense during constipation. It relieves some of the abdominal pressure and generally improves digestive health when performed regularly.

The most beneficial types of massages for chronic fatigue are Swedish and lymphatic drainage massages. These relieve pain, stimulate the body’s parasympathetic response, and speed up the body’s detoxification process, which reduces fatigue.

When tense muscles are left unattended, the tension can continue to build up, leading to spasms, which are involuntary contractions. A deep tissue or Swedish massage can relax the muscles, eliminating the spasms and the built-up tension.

Massages can improve blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, which will reduce inflammation. With less excess fluid in the joints and muscles, this provides pain relief. Inflammatory conditions that could benefit include arthritis and sciatica.

The pain and fatigue associated with fibromyalgia can be relieved through massages. Massages will help relax the muscles, promote better sleep, improve mood, and reduce pain.

Massages during pregnancy relax both the body and mind. They are beneficial for achy joints and sore muscles and can lower anxiety and depression. Massages also serve to prepare the body for a smoother labour process.

Massages provide tremendous relief for injured muscles by relieving tension and helping the recovery process. Increasing blood flow to the area speeds up recovery time, reduces inflammation, and improves the range of motion.
