REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPY
HOT STONE MASSAGE
"Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.
Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved; and physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of Massage Therapy.
Before a treatment, your Massage Therapist will propose a personalized treatment plan based on an initial assessment and health history. The assessment consists of various tests to determine the condition of your muscles and joints. Any personal and health information you provide to your Massage Therapist is completely confidential and will be safeguarded. Your health record cannot be released or transferred without your written consent."
College of Massage Therapists of Ontario
During a hot stone massage, the techniques of a regular massage are applied, however the therapist holds hot stones in their hands and uses them to massage with. This allows the therapist to get deeper into the muscles without applying more pressure, helping the client relax further.
The stones are smooth and flat and are made of a volcanic rock type called basalt. These particular stones are chosen because of their ability to retain heat.
It is very important to let your therapist know if the stones are too hot. Your therapist will always have a bowl of cold water to place the stones in if they are too hot, and the temperature on the stone warmer can be adjusted throughout the treatment.
Due to the time to heat and sanitize the stones there is an additional $20 fee per session.

A focused pressure technique directed on the feet. It is based on the premise that there are zones and reflexes on the feet which correspond to and are relative to all parts, glands and organs within the body. When these reflexes are stimulated, the body's natural electrical energy works along with the nervous system to clear any blockages in the corresponding zones.
Reflexology that is provided by a Registered Massage Therapist will be covered by extended healthcare benefits.

Cupping therapy is a specific type of alternative medicine that involves placing cups on the skin. By placing the cups upside down on the skin, it creates a suction that encourages healthier and more active circulation of blood. The increased blood supply is believed to be healthy for the general functioning of the body. It can also encourage faster healing of various body parts, whatever the existing ailment may be.
Cupping therapy is known to be safe especially when it is performed correctly and by health professionals who are trained to do so. Nonetheless, there are some potential side effects that may arise or that a patient may become vulnerable to. These include bruises and mild discomfort.
PRENATAL / POSTPARTUM MASSAGE
Prenatal Massage can help alleviate muscle tension, cramps and spasms in the legs, hips, lower back, rib cage and neck areas. It helps to improve blood and lymph circulation, which can reduce swelling especially in the lower body. Prenatal Massage also prevent possibilities of compensations (ex. poor posture due to expanding belly) and encourages relaxation and stress reduction, which benefits both mom and growing baby
Postpartum Massage can alleviate muscular tension and fatigue as well as help improve circulation due to changes in postures as a new mom. Postpartum Massage aids in recovery and correcting posture.
