Philosophy of Care
"It is my belief that to attain optimal benefits from massage therapy, the client and therapist must work together as a team to achieve the goals laid out by the client. The client-therapist relationship is one of clear communication, absolute trust and honesty on both parts if the goals are to be reached."

"The Mandate of this clinic is to encourage people of all ages to embark upon a lifestyle that nurtures wellness and achieves a long lasting state of good health"

What is Massage Therapy?
Massage Therapy is the assessment and treatment of soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments) and joints of the body. Once considered a luxury, massage therapy is now recognized as a highly effective therapy for injury rehabilitation, pain reduction, and enhancing wellness.

Research has shown that Massage Therapy elicits significant physiological effects on the circulatory, musculoskeletal, lymphatic and nervous systems.

Quality Assurance
Massage Therapy is a health profession governed by the Ministry of Health under the Regulated Health Professions Act. Massage Therapists must be registered with the College of Massage Therapists upon completion of a 2,200 hour training program and the practical and written provincial exams managed by them.
The College of Massage Therapists of Ontario has set out clear guidelines and regulations to ensure that you will be receiving the highest level of quality care through yearly peer and self assessments and mandatory continuing education units. The College is in place to protect and enforce the rights of the public within the realm of massage therapy.
The rights of each client will be respected under provisions set out in the Ontario Consent to Treatment Act of 1992. Your authorization in writing will be required before any confidential information is released.

What should I expect on my Initial visit?
During your first visit, your Massage Therapist will ask general health questions and review any recommendations from a health practitioner¹s diagnosis.

The personal health history form may also be emailed to you ahead of time to save time during your first visit.
