Massage therapy involves a variety of “hands-on” techniques, from deep tissue massage to the gentle manipulation of your muscles and joints. Different massage techniques can help relieve acute and chronic pain, and promote greater relaxation.

Consult with an RMT
To learn more about you, your current physical and medical condition, and your health history, one of our Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) will consult with you, and use their findings to guide the remaining steps in your treatment process.
A comprehensive physical examination, often with specific diagnostics, including special testing, x-rays and/or movement analysis, helps us diagnose and understand your issues and how you may respond to treatment.
Create a Custom Massage Treatment Plan
Following a complete analysis of the results of the consultation and examination, your RMT creates a tailored treatment plan, potentially using a combination of massage therapies and other treatments, targeted to your specific needs.
Treatments are provided according to your schedule and requirements to relieve pain and/or receive relaxation massage therapy. All of our RMTs are licensed with the College of Massage Therapist of Ontario (CMTO).
Following your course of therapy, your RMT helps you stay healthy too. They may show you specific ways to avoid new issues, recommend exercises to prevent recurring issues, and/or suggest lifestyle transformations.
