We want to educate you as best we can with regards to your body before you get a massage. Our initial appointment includes a 15 minute assessment performed by your RMT followed with a 60 minute massage. You’ll receive a postural assessment and any orthopedic or range of motion tests that your therapist deems necessary for treatment. Although you don’t have to book this appointment, we highly encourage everyone that is a first time visitor to utilize this service in order to achieve the best results
We do this in order to create a stable foundation and point of reference in order to achieve the best results for your current and future treatments.
75 Minute Initial Appointment
We believe that you will achieve the best results by booking in for a duration other than a specific type of massage. This is because everyone is different and each individual area of your body has been through different kind of wear, tear and stress. We want to treat your body to a duration while allowing you to personalize your treatment.
Swedish massage and relaxation massage are included in your treatment duration. We believe this is the ultimate way to help you unwind and heal.
Indie Head Massage
An Indie Head Massage is rooted in ancient Ayurvedic medicine. The massage focuses on the scalp and face, bringing increased blood flow to those areas and increasing lymphatic drainage. This leads to an invigoration of the scalp, reduction of nervous stress, and extreme relaxation.
A head massage is beneficial in treating migraines, sinus headaches, tension headaches, facial pain. It promotes a healthy skin and scalp, and has also been shown to help treat conditions such as psoriasis of the scalp or Bell’s palsy.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which your RMT will put special cups on your body for 20-25 minutes to create suction. You can benefit from cupping by it’s ability to help with fascial restrictions, muscle pain, range of motion restrictions, detoxification, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Your massage therapist will work with you to help determine the best type of techniques to reach your treatment goals.
