Massage therapy focuses on soft tissue manipulation to promote relaxation of the body’s nervous system and enhance muscle performance. A natural form of therapy that promotes healing, circulation, and waste reduction in tissues… The goal of massage therapy is to restore and maintain optimal health and pain-free function of the body.
Registered Massage Therapists (RMT) in Alberta have the highest level of Massage Therapy education in Canada. They are educated and trained to accurately assess and treat with techniques that include massage and manual therapy, joint mobilization, rehabilitative exercises and patient education. Treatment is focused on the soft tissues of the body, including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. All our RMT’s have completed diploma programs and are in good standing with the College of Massage Therapy of Alberta.
Encompassing a combination of traditional Chinese acupuncture and Western medical science, acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into the skin at specific points to achieve a variety of effects such as pain relief, reduction of swelling, and improved circulation. The release of endorphins and opening of a person’s ch’i or energy flow can relieve multiple symptoms.
Medical acupuncture is not appropriate for all patients, and thus an assessment is required to determine if it is appropriate for you.
Foot biomechanics play a vital role in the way the body moves and functions. A custom foot orthotic is a biomechanical insole achieving alignment of the foot and ankle and an anatomically efficient position.
Your orthotic evaluation will involve a thorough history and complete biomechanical assessment including a clinical gait analysis, and the creation of a 3-dimensional mould of your foot. Your custom-made prescription orthotic will be unique to your condition, activity level, and to the footwear in which you will use them.
