Massage Therapy

You deserve to have a say about your massage therapy treatment. 

 

From pressure being applied, to the music being played or even the type of lotion used, we want you to be comfortable and informed to help you receive the most out of your treatment.


Massage therapy is about change and improving your health and self awareness. Swedish techniques are the most commonly used but there are additional modalities like stretches, fascia work and low grade joint mobilizations.  Deep tissue massage doesn't have to hurt to be effective, we will work with you throughout the treatment.  

Please take note that appointment length does include an assessment, the treatment and self-care recommendations.

It is imperative that you arrive early to fill out paperwork to not affect the length of you session. We try our best to make sure as much of the session time will include the hands on portion of the massage!
