Registered Massage Therapy (RMT)
“The Practice of Massage therapy is the assessment of the soft tissues and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissues and joints, by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or relive pain.” – CMTO
Contemporary Medical Acupuncture (CMAG)
Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique, in which fine solid needles (acupuncture needles) are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites, and stimulated manually or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system and/or the endocrine, exocrine and immune systems, in pain syndromes, functional problems, and any diseases in which these modulatory mechanisms are available. Neuromodulation occurs through neurological and neurohumoral mechanisms at multiple levels, namely: peripheral nerves, spinal cord, brain stem, brain and cerebellum.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up stiff, hypertonic muscles. Essential oils can also be added to the water and lotion to get an aromatic, therapeutic treatment.

Acupressure, from Latin acus "needle" is an alternative medicine technique similar in principle to acupuncture. It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through "meridians" in the body. In treatment, physical pressure is applied to acupressure points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians and stimulation neurovascular bundles to promote healing of the muscles and other soft tissues of the body.
Cupping Massage brings the ancient art of cupping to the modern day practice. This modality allows for a unique approach to the fascia and body fluids. Cupping has an ability to affect deeper tissue, remove fascial restrictions, and increase range of motion.
Cupping goes far beyond simple fascial techniques and treatment, such as angiogenesis, metabolism and immune response. A Cupping treatment can cover the back; scars, fascia, joints, trigger points, muscle imbalances and even pleura treatment techniques.
