can be an effective way to help relieve a number of musculoskeletal conditions, such as back pain and carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as alleviate the symptoms of chronic conditions, such as arthritis and neurological conditions. We pride ourselves in taking a client-centered approach to every appointment. Our Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) have extensive experience and offer a range of services that can be tailored to your individual needs.
Our services include therapeutic massage, lymphatic drainage massage, prenatal/pregnancy massage, infant massage, reflexology, and hot stone massage. We also use techniques such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, acupressure, and breast massage that, with your consent, can be incorporated as part of your treatment when appropriate.
Therapeutic massage Davisville
A therapeutic massage is performed with a specific goal in mind which is guided by your expressed needs or concerns. All massage performed by our RMT is therapeutic, whether it be purely for relaxation or to bring relief for specific acute or chronic musculoskeletal conditions. A therapeutic session will involve questions and possibly orthopaedic testing to allow the therapist to devise a treatment plan for your approval. Although classic Swedish massage techniques form the foundation of our work, we may also employ advanced techniques such as deep tissue massage, myofascial release, trigger point release, and joint mobilization.Lymphatic drainage massage
Lymphatic drainage massage uses gentle, rhythmic movements to stimulate the flow of lymph throughout the body and promote optimal functioning of the lymphatic system. This type of massage can be an effective way to help detoxify the body and stimulate the immune system, as well as reduce swelling and bruising associated with injury.
Prenatal massage is tailored specifically to the needs of the expectant mother and can help relieve the discomforts of pregnancy such as muscle soreness, and physical and mental fatigue. Special care is taken to help pregnant clients relax and unwind.
A gentle, flowing approach with minimal pressure is used during infant massage to help soothe and relax your baby resulting in a number of benefits. In addition to offering infant massage, we also can provide private and small group infant massage classes for parents.
Reflexology works by stimulating reflex points on the foot, which correspond with all parts of the body. The practice activates the parasympathetic nervous system, or ‘rest and digest’ response, leading to a range of benefits and contributing to an overall sense of well-being.
A wonderful massage therapy technique that promotes a deep sense of relaxation. By resting hot stones on specific parts of the body, muscle tissue relaxes and tension melts away, producing a sense of warmth and comfort. The heated stones are also used to massage the tissue. This can be an effective way to address specific aches and pains.
Some specific techniques used in massage therapy
Myofascial release is a massage technique that focuses on the fascia, our outer layer of connective tissue that encases all muscles. When the fascia becomes tight or injured, it can lead to pain and discomfort. This technique helps restore the elasticity of muscles and increases blood circulation, while providing pain relief.
This technique involves the use of deep pressure to relieve small contracted knots in the skeletal muscle or fascia – referred to as trigger points. These trigger points are painful on compression and can refer pain to another area of the body. Trigger point therapy can be an effective technique to help alleviate long-standing pain.
Using a gentle approach to promote the flow of blood and lymph in the breast tissue, this type of massage can bring relief to an often neglected area. Breast massage, with your consent, can be incorporated into any therapeutic massage to address specific concerns. It can be especially beneficial during the pre- and postnatal periods.
