Before your massage wellness session, we always ask our patients to be open and honest with our massage therapists (RMTs) in regards to which areas you are experiencing pain on your body and how much pressure you would like to get. This will make a big difference and receiving the benefits of your massage session.

This allows the muscles to relax and helps to relieve your headache and tension. The use of massage oil really does help usher in extra feeling and sensation. This helps reduce tension and stress in the muscle joints and help alleviate pain.
