Our Registered Massage Therapists are members of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) .
They use preventative and restorative therapies. Their goal is to help you maintain, rehabilitate and improve physical function or relieve your pain. Sports massage considers sport-specific demands placed upon your body. It will help you to return to your desired activity/sport with the same or better level of function. Sports massage can use more aggressive techniques than those used for relaxation/stress relief therapy.
The cost of massage therapy may be covered through extended health insurance, but you are responsible for payment at the time of treatment. You can pay for massage therapy by cash or by cheque, payable to your individual therapist.
