Massage Therapy is the hands on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body including; fascia, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. The effects of massage are physiologic and psychological. The effects work in concert on the systems of the body including the cardiovascular, lymphatic, skeletal, soft tissues and the neuroanatomy.
An increase in circulation results in the body having an increased ability to rid itself of the wastes created when the cells of our component tissues process energy and nutrients, known as metabolites.
Massage Therapy is a complimentary therapy which can be used with success by all people, at any age.
In Ontario, to become a Registered Massage Therapist, a candidate must first graduate from an accredited facility adhering to a minimum 2200 hour training program.

Restore balance to your body
We provide Manual Osteopathic care to those who seek relief from a range of symptoms and bring their body back to a place of ease allowing self-healing and self-regulation. Our gentle, drugless, manual treatments rely on excellent palpatory skills and a synthesis of anatomic, physiologic and pathophysiologic knowledge. Our education develops the ability to render a seamless assessment and treatment delivery that is specific to your body and its presentation at the time of treatment. We are happy to take the time to educate our patients about how the site of pain or dysfunction is not always the source and thus why we may be applying treatment to an area that may not seem to be connected. This whole body approach is what sets the practice of Osteopathy apart.

Employee loyalty today is not what it once was. In times of contract employment and mobility, companies may struggle internally with retaining their top performers and dedicated staffers. By deploying strategies to offer employees health & wellness information and support, a relationship of care is established. Taking charge and being on the edge of initiating a healthy attitude and transferring that to the workplace elevates people. It tells them that they too can be strong in their mind and body. It fosters a sense of belonging to a good community. It breeds loyalty, dedication and trust. Give to your workforce and they will pay you handsomely.
