Licensed massage therapist Crystal takes the time to help her clients discover the root cause of their discomfort or pain. By doing so, she is able to better customize their kneading sessions, pulling from the smooth, gliding techniques of the Swedish massage to the pressurized and trigger-point techniques used in deep-tissue massages. She specializes in prenatal massages that help expectant mothers find relief from aches and swelling, and offers an express massage for busy clients or people with a short attention span.
Muscles speak to licensed massage therapist Fiona Maier. Maybe not literally, but for her, "bodywork is a dialogue" in which she listens and reacts to her client's needs. She mixes modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger point therapy to release tension and reduce stress, helping her guests to combat everything from chronic pain to a sports injury.
The staff at E.W. Health Consultants believe that relaxation is necessary for restoration. Their holistic treatments––which include massage, nutritional plans, body wraps, and herbal foot soaks––serve to soothe and heal clients' minds, bodies, and souls. The center is headed by N. Sala Scruggs, a certified naturopathic practitioner, herbalist, and bodyworker.
Soft strains of music mingle with the aromas of essential oils at Regeneration Centre of Beauty and Health. There, a staff of beauty and wellness specialists performs hair- and bodycare services with a wide range of traditional elixirs as well as organic products and supplements. Through massage treatments, the therapists aim to restore energy, well-being, and a sense of peace akin to frolicking in a field of marshmallows. They also perform therapeutic services such as reflexology, acupressure, and moxibustion—a traditional chinese remedy that promotes circulation through the burning of mugwort over affected areas. The team performs haircuts and styling services with Schwarzkopf organic products, and improves strands’ lustre with botanical hair and scalp therapy. Detoxification supplements and herbs are also available for purchase.
Owner Carrie Deslippe and her team of RMTs Above and Beyond Massage Therapy Clinic are not your ordinary massage therapists. Qualified to treat clients with workplace and motor vehicle injuries, their nimble hands are adept at working to heal chronic and intense pain. These skills serve them well, even during relaxation massages or sessions enhanced with hot stones and thermal pods. The clinic's massage rooms soothe clients, not with the sounds of James Earl Jones reading bedtime stories, but with minimal decor and tones of chocolate and spring green. The team also strives to give back through community projects by donating on-site massages at fundraising events.
