$45 for a 60-Minute Deep-Tissue, Therapeutic, or Relaxation Massage ($90 Value)
The deep-tissue massage uses slow, forceful massage strokes to relieve pain in the deep muscle layers. Therapeutic massage treats chronic health conditions such as back pain or headaches. The relaxation massage calms nerves and relaxes the body.
Progressive Sports Medicine
The registered massage therapists of Progressive Sports Medicine have worked with numerous athletes from the NHL, AHL, CFL, and NLL, but athletes aren't their only clients. They also treat individuals who have undergone repetitive strain injuries, back pains, and headaches, which the clients perhaps received by working in office jobs or straining too much to lick jam off their elbows.
The clinic's team—which includes chiropractors, a sports physician, and a physiotherapist in addition to massage and athletic therapists—doesn’t just address injuries that have already occurred. They also attempt to prevent these injuries from happening in the first place, in both sports and everyday life. They work with individuals to identify issues in workout regimens or lifestyles and to head the issues off with massage therapy, custom orthotics, conditioning, and acupuncture.
