Our full range of services will help to address acute injury pain. For example, we all know how great a massage feels great and that it can also really help relieve pain and tension. However—did you know—when performed soon after accidents involving trauma and significant injury, therapeutic massage can also greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning. Our registered massage therapists employ gentle hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of your body with a therapeutic focus that includes your muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints.

Longer-term movement dysfunctions can limit effective or efficient body performance over time and may be the result of chronic pain, disease, periods of inactivity, problems associated with aging, and/or stress. These types of problems are often addressed through osteopathy and/or physiotherapy, where our approach involves a problem-based treatment plan based on the knowledge and experience of our highly trained team of specialists. Regular re-evaluation of your condition and constant communication your therapist will help them to track your progress, help control your pain, and get you back to regular life.
