Massage Therapy in Barrie

massage patientMassage is a manual therapy. We use our hands to work the soft tissues of your body. As we press into muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints, they relax. Blood circulation increases and feel-good neuropeptides are released.

Massage therapy is relaxing, but also has a therapeutic effect.

Your First Massage With Us

Everyone is unique. Each of us has our own tolerance to pain and pressure. After discussing your preferences and objectives, we’ll carefully monitor your response.

Too much? Too little? Too deep?

We want to make sure your experience is a great one. If you would like more or less pressure at any time during your massage, just let us know.

Massage therapy has helped millions of people manage pain and other health concerns. A massage shouldn’t substitute for a visit to your doctor. We’re happy to collaborate with the rest of your health care team to create the best outcome possible.

“Complete Care” Is Our Name: No Wonder Our Massage Services Are So Complete

Our experienced therapist offers many different massage techniques. We’ll personalize your experience to maximize your results.

  • Myofascial release – Is a type of massage therapy focusing on pain caused by sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues. A gentle and sustained pressure into the restricted connective tissue restores motion and reduces pain.
  • Trigger point – You know those knots that turn up in neck or back? Those are trigger points. Trigger point massage therapy will focus on these certain areas of your body, helping to release these trigger points. Applying pressure and releasing alleviates pain. Additionally, trigger point therapy can also help with headaches.
  • Pin and stretch - Specific areas are recognized in muscles and tendons where overuse has caused repetitive injury and scar tissue has built up. To fix this affected muscles are shortened and then taken through their full range of motion.
  • Deep tissue – Used to realign the deepest layers of muscles and connective tissue. Especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and muscle tightness. This could help with, low back pain, limited mobility, recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls), repetitive strain injury, muscle tension in the hamstrings, glutes, IT band, legs, quadriceps, rhomboids, upper back, osteoarthritis pain, Sciatica , Piriformis syndrome, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, upper back or neck pain and many more.
  • Cupping – This centuries old therapy in which a therapist puts cups on your skin for a few minutes to produce suction. People get it for many purposes, including pain management, inflammation reduction and improved circulation.
  • Relaxation – This is just what it sounds like! Let’s not forget a popular way to recover from the stress of everyday life! These long smooth gliding strokes are relaxing, but not painful. This can help with boosting your mood, reducing stress and anxiety, reducing symptoms of depression, relieve muscle tension, or relieve pain.
  • Sports – Sports massage therapy is aimed at athletes. Often an athlete’s body can be overused, overworked, or just stressed due to repetitive use. The specifics of the sports massage technique are geared to what the athletes sport is.
  • Swedish massage - Swedish massage is one of the most popular offered massage therapies. It’s sometimes called a classic massage. The technique tries to support relaxation by releasing muscle tension. Swedish massage is milder than deep tissue massage and better aimed for patient’s relief. The soft, long, kneading strokes are combined with light, rhythmic, tapping strokes to the uppermost layer of muscle makes it the most relaxing and energizing experience.
  • Prenatal – Prenatal massages are focused on the body changes you go through during pregnancy. As your body and posture changes, a trained therapist will make adaptations with special pillows and bedding, or holes that allow you to lie face down safely, while giving space for your growing bell. Or you might lie on your side with the support of pillows and cushions. This massage helps relieve stress and promote overall wellness. It’s a natural way to reduce the most common discomforts of pregnancy.
