Pregnancy Massage

Massage therapy provides treatment that will address symptoms or conditions associated with pregnancy to encourage a healthy and comfortable pre and postpartum transition. It is recommended to continue with massage therapy after labour, as it reduces the recovery time, promotes relaxation and decreases tension in muscles from the postural demands of motherhood. Women who have had a c-section are strongly encouraged to receive treatment for their surgical scar. This therapy can be provided once you have gotten the OK from your MD/Midwife (around 6 weeks if healing is going well). This will promote formation of a mobile scar helping to speed recovery and prevent any future issues.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is designed to encourage fast recovery and enhance performance in any type of athlete ranging from the weekend warrior to professional athlete. It assists in increasing blood flow, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the body and removes toxins and waste products that build up during exercise. Massage therapy will encourage tissue mobility in areas that may be restricted, thus improving range of motion. Sports massage can help prevent injuries; however, in the event injuries do occur, it can speed healing time. Consistent massage can assist you in achieving your full athletic potential.

  • Increases circulation and removal of waste product from muscles
  • Boosts athletic performance
  • Reduces recovery time
  • Prevents loss of mobility
  • Breaks down scar tissue
  • Pain reduction

  • Decrease lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic wastes
  • Stretches soft tissue
  • Decreases muscle tension
  • Reduces stress

Common Questions

What can I expect from a massage therapy treatment?
For your initial visit it is encouraged to start with a 60 minute treatment as this will allow your therapist time to go over your health history, perform a thorough assessment and treat your specific needs.
Once the assessment is done, the therapist will inform you of what areas they would like to treat, ask for your consent and direct you on how to position yourself on the table. After the therapist leaves the room you will disrobe to your comfort level and then position yourself on the table between the sheets.
Please note that only one area of your body is exposed at a time and the therapist will work within your comfort level and pain limits. At no time should you feel uncomfortable, exposed, or nervous. The massage is your time and is intended to meet your needs and comfort level. Questions are encouraged before, during and after your session.

Is pregnancy massage safe for my baby?
Yes, your therapist will make any necessary modifications to your treatment to ensure safety for you and your baby.

Do I have to remove all my clothing for massage therapy?
No, your therapists will indicate which areas of your body they will be treating and you will disrobe to your comfort level.

Can anyone receive massage therapy?
Yes, anyone can receive massage therapy. The therapist will make any necessary modifications to the treatment given based on age and any underlying medical conditions.
