Swedish massage is the standard massage that is taught to each and every Massage Therapist in Ontario. It can be customized with the pressure and focus varying between clients. Whether you are looking for a specific treatment for an injury or concern, or a more general relaxation treatment. It is extremely effective in treating most conditions from tension headaches, back, neck and knee pain, as well as acute or chronic injuries. It is also effective in treatment of TMJ dysfunction, and overuse injuries such as tendonitis.
Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology, as opposed to energy work on “meridiens” or sen lines in Asian massage systems. We recommend that for an initial appointment you book a minimum of a 60 minute treatment to allow your therapist enough time to do a brief assessment, and then give you a thorough hands on treatment. After that you can book any length of treatment between 30 minutes and 120 minutes, depending on your treatment goals and areas of focus. For acute appointments, we can accommodate a shorter initial appointment, to ensure getting you seen by one of our therapists as soon as possible.
