We don’t just expect you to take our word for it, we will put you in front of a mirror to measure and perform functional testing so you can see for yourself. With each session, we will be able to measure ongoing progress and see how close (or how far) you are from achieving your goal, whether its pain relief, improved posture or a body that feels and works better overall.   Clients think it’s magic, but it comes down to the math of the human body and math problems always have SOLUTIONS. There is no guessing or B.S’ing.

Yes, we encourage it.  You are designed to move. We will give you tips and techniques to help you improve and progress in between appointments that are specific to your body’s needs.  It’s important to stay active and do your homework to enhance the effectiveness and holding power of each session.

Your first session will be at least an hour and will go through a full body assessment which takes 10-15 minutes so the therapist can target the areas that will create the most change where needed. Pain is not always the best indicator of the root cause.  The therapist always questions. Why is this happening?  Why has it not yet healed on its own?  What are the barriers?  They create a checklist (or to-do list) based on your body’s current state that will be reassessed at each visit to make sure you are progressing. You are always the ultimate decision maker about your body – we are here to give you information that will help you discern and understand potential risks, benefits and options for your healthcare. It is vital to us that you are an informed participant in your health journey and that you feel comfortable and respected.

Please fill out the health history ahead of time so the appointment can start right on time and address your health needs and questions. Please wear workout clothes and make sure to hydrate.  Aim for a litre before your appointment. Your therapists will always communicate what they discover, what they are working on, and their action plan. It is a very interactive appointment. Remember to hydrate before and after your treatment. A dehydrated client may get cramps or feel lightheaded during or after treatment.

While Manual therapy has a different treatment style than the traditional Swedish Massage with no oils or getting undressed – it successfully addresses our scope of practice as RMT’s which mandates that we “assess the soft tissues and joints of the body, treating and preventing physical dysfunction and pain through manipulative techniques. The goal is to develop, maintain, rehabilitate and enhance physical function and provide pain relief ” at every age and stage of life.

We are diligent in our functional testing and postural and biomechanical assessments. This process is an essential to measuring progress and effectiveness, which we cannot overlook.

 Presently, everyone at the clinic using this method is an RMT and so yes, if you have employee extended health benefits that cover Massage Therapy, you’re covered.  Please check with your insurance provider to confirm your coverage details. Also, for your convenience, ask about Direct Billing prior to your appointment so that we can get you set up in our system for a seamless checkout. An RMT insurance receipt is always given for each session if you don’t have coverage and you can submit through your income tax as part of your medical benefit.

Sure, the more the merrier. We will always work as a partner in your health care and together with your team. We may even recommend specific ones for you too.  We are also a multidisciplinary clinic so you can use one of the therapists on staff or your own favorite.

We use pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, shockwave (acoustic soundwave) & vibration therapy to assist with inflammation, difficult pain, joint and tendon degeneration, arthritis, deep scarring and tears.

All of our techniques are safe to use on the head and neck.  They are low force, gentle techniques that help relieve the pressure problems associated with trauma and dysfunction.  Pressure problems lead to pain problems so our goal is to reduce the pressure in your body as well as achieve stability from your toes to your head. We don’t encourage mobility (over-stretching) or take away tension at the expense of stability which is a priority for your body’s health. Poor posture and excessive tightness are often consequences of this.
