Really helped me the first visit. I was in tremendous pain for a week hoping that my lower back pain would go away with pain medications and heat. I was a fool to wait so long. Have a few more appointments set up and can’t wait until I am pain free again. Very greatful for the treatment and feel so much better. Thank you!

Massage Services We Offer

massage therapy richmond hill

Deep Tissue Massage Richmond Hill

Deep tissue massage is used to correct musculoskeletal issues such as strain, tension, and inflammation. These are often very painful, especially when chronic. It can also be used for other conditions and injuries, as well as for limited mobility, fibromyalgia, posture problems, and more. You will be glad to know that besides aiding in physical recuperation, deep tissue massage can prove to be just as relaxing as a RMT massage Richmond Hill you would receive at a massage spa Richmond Hill. With that said, it is similar to the Swedish massage, but different in many techniques used and the application thereof.

In deep tissue massage, long and firm strokes are used to apply constant pressure on the body part being worked on. This is to target the problem areas within the deep layers of muscles and the connective tissue. You will experience a variety of intense pressure as you are being worked on. The pressure used in deep tissue massage is much harder than what you would typically receive with a Swedish massage. The areas of focus are also deeper muscle regions than the usual superficial layers of muscle. This allows for proper recovery after injury or other damage to the area.

cupping therapy-rmt richmond hill

Cupping
Therapy

Cupping therapy is an ancient practice used to treat a variety of issues. It has continued on from its first use in ancient China, nearly 2000 years ago, up to the present day. It can be considered massage in reverse; where massage exerts pressure downwards onto the muscles, cupping uses pressure to draw muscles up. It is used to treat a variety of physiological issues via improving blood flow, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, anemia, and more. Cupping therapy creates some down time in the skin where our clients will need to recover, but our therapists provide a safe method of cupping where your body will feel clearer and more energized.

Cupping, as in its name, uses cups made of glass, bamboo, earthenware, paper, or silicone. Heat is applied to the cups so that when it is placed on the body, the skin (and thus the blood) is drawn into the cup as its temperature cools. Other techniques use suction to create the same effect. Cupping is considered a type of deep tissue massage, as well. Wet and dry cupping are methods that both exist, where wet cupping involves making tiny cuts on the skin with a scalpel, and allowing the both the skin and small amounts of blood to be sucked into the cup. Dry cupping is suction-only.

Hot Stone
Massage

If you are looking to ease muscle tension and pain in a gentler way, hot stone massage may be right for you. Hot stone massage also helps with stress, anxiety, and sleep issues as the treatment is relaxing and helps to clear the mind. It also helps to improve blood circulation, as well as joint flexibility and overall mobility. The warmth of the stones is calming to those who may feel chilly easily, where the heat is used to relax the tension of muscles while the massage therapist Richmond Hill works on deeper strokes during the treatment.

Hot stone massage works by heating smooth, flat stones made of volcanic basalt river rocks, which retain heat easier than most other types of stones. They are then aligned on specific parts of the body, usually the back, stomach, face, hands, or feet. The therapist will then massage the body, typically using Swedish techniques such as kneading, rolling, and long strokes. They may also use the stones to massage various parts of the body. Cold stones are occasionally applied to soothe the skin after the hot stones have been used. This helps to calm swollen blood vessels and to close pores.

Prenatal Massage
Richmond Hill

While getting a regular massage while you are pregnant isn’t recommended, we provide prenatal massage services which are safe for you and your baby past the second trimester. Your anatomy changes so much during pregnancy, which is why it is important to go to massage therapists who know how to provide you with massage services that are effective. With that said, you may want to avoid getting a massage in the first trimester because it may cause dizziness or trigger morning sickness.

A prenatal massage is simply a massage that takes the safety of you and your baby into account while you are getting your massage. These are adjustments that are necessary to make the experience as comfortable for you as possible. The biggest adjustment to this massage will be your position during it, as it is unsafe and uncomfortable to lay on your stomach. You will instead be cradling a body pillow as you lie on your side. This gives the therapist access to your back for the massage to continue as normal. Lying on your back may create pressure on the vena cava, so we provide more pillows to keep you in a semi-reclined position during other parts of your massage.

Postnatal
Massage Therapy

Since your body undergoes so many changes during pregnancy, it is a tough and stressful time on both body and mind. You may be looking into ways to get your body back to its former condition. It is for this reason that postnatal massage focuses on bringing the strength back into your muscles and tissues. Massage is a safe and natural way to achieve this. Postnatal massage targets the muscles that were most strained during pregnancy, to have you feeling relaxed and free from the aches and pains that you may still experience even after giving birth.

Postnatal massage eases soreness and tension by increasing blood flow and oxygen into your muscles. This helps to bring down swelling, reducing excess fluids and water retention. It also helps to improve breastfeeding, as special techniques are used to stimulate breast tissue and promote the production of oxytocin– the chemical that makes you lactate. It also reduces the risk of mastitis, or a bacterial infection caused by blockage in the milk ducts. Postnatal massage helps the skin regain elasticity, so that you are glowing once more. It also helps reduce the risk of postpartum depression, but if it’s something you are suffering from already, massage is an effective treatment to have you feeling clear-headed and happy again.

serv6

Myofascial
Release

Myofascial tissues are the tissues which support muscles throughout your body. If you are suffering from myofascial pain and reduced motion, you may want to look into myofascial release as part of your treatment plan. Myofascial pain may be caused by trauma, surgical procedures, or inflammatory issues. The areas where myofascial pain comes from are called “trigger points”. Since it may be difficult to isolate a specific trigger point, myofascial release is used over a large area to most effectively soothe the ache.

The therapist will locate areas in your myofascial tissues which feel stiff versus elastic and easily movable. Manual pressure is applied to the tissues to loosen up the stiffness and to stretch out the muscle to aid in re-creating movement. This leads to a reduction in the amount of pain that you feel. The sustained pressure breaks up the trigger points, and over a period of time, will help to restore full motion to the muscle once more.
