Referred pain.

Massage therapy is a natural, non-invasive method to relieve pain, promote healing and improve wellness. But if you're fortunate enough to not suffer from aches and pains, massage therapy treatments can help prevent injury while promoting internal health. Massage therapy helps to stretch stiff muscles, including injuries from sports activities, work or home. Massage therapy also helps relieve stress, anxiety and boost you immune system.

Deep Tissue Massage Treatment
FHT Full Member


Experts say there's an overlap between Swedish and Deep tissue massage techiques. The biggest differences are the depth of pressure used and the perceived intensity.
Swedish massage is a form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration, and tapping to help relax and energize you. Deep tissue massage, on the other hand, uses more pressure and focuses on deeper layers of muscle tissue to help relieve chronic pain and tension. Deep tissue massage should not be a painful experience. Both are great for relaxing.

Whether you’re a professional athlete or an occasional gym-goer, my sessions are designed to help you reach your fitness goals.

I am professional and here to help you reach your goals and make the most of your physical activity. Many people assume that sports massage therapy is for people that are regularly active, but that's not true.

Remedial Massage Therapy

Deep Tissue, Sports Massage or Remedial, What's the difference?
Deep tissue massage, sports massage, and remedial massage are all types of therapeutic massage that focus on different areas of the body and use different techniques. Deep tissue massage is designed to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, while sports massage is geared towards athletes and focuses on preventing and treating injuries. You don't have to be an athlete to benefit from sports massage. If you live a sedentary lifestyle because of working conditions or home life, you too can benefit. Remedial massage is a more comprehensive approach that aims to address a range of musculoskeletal, including chronic pain and postural problems.

Good flexibility is known to bring positive benefits in the muscles and joints. It aids with injury prevention, helps to minimize muscle soreness and improves efficiency in all physical activities. Increasing flexibility can also improve quality of life and functional independence. Good flexibility aids in muscle elasticity and provides a wider range of motion in the joints. Unfortunately flexibility is generally not a focus of most people and it is underestimated how much regular stretching is essential for optimum health and activity. Research studies have shown that you are at higher risk of injuries when doing physical activities, if you're not taking part of a regular stretch program. Reports have also shown that people who do regular stretches throughout the week, increase in both strength and endurance gains as well as improved flexibility and mobility.
