Registered Massage Therapy

Whether it be for sports injury, pain management or just relaxation, our skilled Registered Massage Therapists, or RMTs, are trained in advanced techniques that will help you feel better now.   Located on Commercial Drive, right in the heart of East Vancouver, easily accessible by car or skytrain, you won’t wait long for service.

How does Registered Massage Therapy work?

Massage therapy works by  bringing blood flow to the tissue, moving the cells in the fascia or connective tissue, and stimulating or calming the nervous system. By using manual techniques, hand, fingers, forearm or even elbow contact, your RMT will help to release restrictions, adhesions and other “stuck” elements, to encourage muscle relaxation.  The nervous system will also relax, so that maximum healing can occur.

A Customised Approach:

Our RMTs will assess you on your first visit, and come up with a customised treatment approach that suits your specific needs, including depth of pressure, speed, friction.  They take care to listen to your story ahead of time, and encourage communication during the visit if you need any changes.

Some of our specialised techniques include:

  • Swedish Massage
  • Myofascial Release
  • Deep Tissue Massage
  • Trigger Point Release
  • Dermo-neuro modulation
  • Prenatal Massage
  • Joint Mobilisation
  • Exercise Therapy

  • Chronic Pain
  • Injuries
  • Sitting Posture
  • Movement problems
  • Muscle Tension
  • Sciatica
  • Stuck Lymph Nodes

  • Stress and Anxiety
