Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body.  Massage aims to reduce pain, promote flexibility and relaxation of the muscles and soft tissue, and prevent future injury or dysfunction.  Here at Whole Therapy, we employ Registered Massage Therapists, which are practitioners that have completed at least 2200 hours of hands-on treatment before passing two provincial examinations.

Massage Therapy qualifies for direct billing under most insurance plans

A good massage brings you mentally down a level and physically up a level.

Pre and post natal massage

Pregnancy is an important time to get massage therapy.  The body is in a state of constant change, and growing a person is no small feat!

As the body progresses through pregnancy, massage therapy is adapted to suit the comfort and needs of the client.

Prenatal massage aims to decrease pain associated with the growing belly as well as address other physiological and psychological changes: carpal tunnel, swollen limbs, sciatica, stress, and much more.

Post natal massage aims at helping the body recover from labour and delivery, as well as reduce pain from carrying the new baby, breastfeeding, and other new-mom pains.

TMJ Massage

Do you clench or grind your teeth? Is it causing jaw pain or headaches that you can’t seem to get rid of?

Clenching and grinding can wear you down and be exhausting. You’re spending so much energy on muscles that don’t need to be working so hard!

TMJ work can help decrease that tension: Massage of the surrounding muscles of the jaw externally and intra-orally.

Treatment is focused on the external jaw, inside the mouth, and the head, neck, and shoulders. It is very gentle and designed to work well within the client’s pain tolerance.

See Stephanie, Roy, or Richelle for TMJ work!

Craniosacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It was pioneered and developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University where he served as professor of biomechanics.

Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams – about the weight of a nickel – practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it’s effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

cupping

Cupping

Done as part of a massage or acupuncture treatment (or as a stand-alone), cupping is an ages-old technique that lifts tissues up and away from each other, allowing release of fascial tension.

Cupping helps release tension, adhesion, and trigger points within the muscles and soft tissues. It also helps bring needed blood flow to an area.

As one of our RMTs puts it, “When you’re getting dynamic cupping done, it feels like your skin is being picked up and dragged. It’s an unusual feeling. It’s painful but it’s a good pain. When you’re getting static cupping done, it feels like a lot of pressure is being created at one point in your muscle and as soon as the cup is taken away, a wave of instant relief rushes in.”
