The Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy from a registered massage therapist at our Vaughan-area spa can be used to treat both chronic and acute physical injuries, as well as bring relief from stress, depression and anxiety.
Many clients find that massage can help to relieve the symptoms of strains, muscle damage, soft tissue damage, sprains, inflammation, joint problems (including arthritis and tendon damage), loss of mobility, muscle weakness and related trauma. In addition, massage can also have a beneficial impact on a number of systemic conditions such as high blood pressure, difficulties with the lymph system, diabetes, insomnia, chronic fatigue and generic aches and pains.
Services We Offer
Depending on their needs, our clients can benefit from the following types of massage:
Swedish relaxation massage is the most common type of massage. This modality involves long, fluid strokes of muscles and tissues with pressure that varies from light to medium to firm. This type of massage is one of the most relaxing styles. During a Swedish massage, registered massage therapists will adjust their level of pressure according to your sensitivity and preference.
Sports massage is a no-nonsense modality that aims to stretch tight muscles, stimulate inactive muscles and improve soft tissue conditions. Sports massage can enable you to move your body more freely with more flexibility and in time, it can improve your posture. As the name suggests, it is popular with athletic individuals as it enhances performance, assists with recovery and prevents further injury.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a deeper, more intense modality. This technique uses slow, deep guided strokes and firm pressure designed to relieve severe tension and reach below the superficial muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain and tension in both large and small muscle groups.
Trigger Point Massage
Trigger points are sore, painful spots that occur in a muscle. Most people refer to trigger points as knots. They are called trigger points because they “trigger” a painful response that often refers pain to different parts of your body.
Trigger point massage uses concentrated finger pressure on each trigger point to prevent cycles of muscle pain and spasms. Trigger point massage provides benefits after just one session.
Prenatal Massage is a nurturing massage modality that focuses on the special needs of mothers-to-be during pregnancy. Positioning, pillows and cushions are used to enhance support, decrease pressure and increase relaxation for both the body and mind.
Both mother and baby share in the benefits as stress and tension melt away, leaving you feeling balanced and energized. The result is a relief of stress on feet, ankles, lower back and neck, as well as the reduction of swelling. It is advised that you consult with your doctor to see if prenatal massage is right for you. Additional restrictions may apply.
Hot Stone Massage
Our Signature Massage! This modality is a full body massage Vaughan clients often find extremely beneficial. Hot stone massage is a form of massage therapy that follows the same principles of Swedish massage, with the addition of heated stones that help lead to deep relaxation. Adding heat to specific areas on the body enhances the feelings of relaxation and peace. It is recommended for individuals suffering from fibromyalgia, arthritis or other chronic pain. The penetrating effects of the heated stones allows the massage to be delivered effectively, all without excessive pressure.
