An Effective Approach to Healthcare & Self-care


"The practice of massage therapy is the assessment of the soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissues and joints by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or relieve pain."

-- Massage Therapy Act 1991


To provide proven and skillful techniques in a safe, comfortable environment conducive to pain reduction, soft tissue healing, and overall wellness.

Joints and bones in the body.


To empower individuals, families and communities to integrate and maintain massage therapy and holistic therapies into their health care regime for enhanced vitality.

Experiencing pain affects all aspects of life.

There is growing awareness of the significant impact of pain on individuals and their families. People living with pain often experience:

  • Reduced quality of life and general health;

  • Decreased mental and emotional health including increased worrying, stress, anxiety, sadness, depression, anger, and frustration;

  • Increased risk of suicide;

  • Problems with cognitive function, such as reduced processing speed, selective attention, memory, and executive functioning;

  • Increased fatigue, exhaustion, and sleep problems;

  • Reduced activities of daily living and physical and social functioning (e.g., sleeping, caregiving, participating in recreation and community life);

  • School/work absence and reduced productivity;

  • Increased disability and inactivity;

  • Decreased social connections and supports; and

  • Increased health care utilization

Every time you walk away from your massage therapy experience, you will feel satisfied and rejuvenated.

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.

Your Massage Therapist must also obtain your consent to work on any part of your body, regardless of whether you are fully clothed, or fully or partially covered with sheets or blankets. Your privacy will always be respected, and you may withdraw your consent for treatment at any time. Various specialized movements of the hands, over the skin or clothes, make up the Massage Therapy treatment. The Massage Therapist will work with your level of pain tolerance during the treatment, and the treatment can be stopped at any time should the treatment become uncomfortable.
