You don't have to pick a style when you book! Choose "Registered Massage Therapy", and the length of time and your practitioner will use the techniques they believe best. The exception is Hot Stone and Shiatsu as they require a different set - up.

Myofascial Cupping – Myofascial cupping is a cupping technique used to create negative pressure, above the surface of the tissues, with the effect of lifting and separating fascial adhesions. Myofascial cupping increases range of motion, and is quite effective in aiding chronic mobility losses. A kin to cupping used in Traditional Chinese Medicine myofascial cupping increases blood flow to stagnant regions of the body, and aids in the movement of toxins from the body. However, myofascial cupping is usually focused on the skeletal systems fascial adhesion patterns more so than the meridians. Myofascial cupping can have profound impacts on one’s soft tissue structure, fascial freedom and mobility.

Reiki is a Japanese term meaning ‘universal lifeforce energy’. In a Reiki session, the practitioner is working to balance the energy centers within the patient’s body. Through a series of hand positions, either directly on, or a few inches above, the Reiki practitioner channels life force energy through their hands to the patient. The patient’s body draws off the amount of energy they require for their unique healing and balancing process. Reiki provides an intentional, direct deliverance of the accessible life force energy that surrounds us and is available to us all the time!

Visceral Manipulation is a treatment often practiced in Osteopathy.

Visceral Manipulation is work done on the viscera, the organs! Through assessment techniques, the practitioner listens to the body’s messages and is able to determine the area of greatest fascial fusions within the viscera. Then deciphering a particular organ's range of motion, the practitioner works to aid its increase of intrinsic and necessary movement, therefore enhancing its function and releasing fascial fusions, which intertwine with various fascial highways within the body.

The body has the innate wisdom of how to self heal. The practitioner merely identifies the area of tension, by listening to the body, then follows and supports its movement in unwinding and releasing any unnecessary grips. Visceral Manipulation is an incredible therapy with a wide range of benefits and applications, all specific to the individual patient’s needs at the time.

Sheila's Specialties

 
 
Hot Stone Massage

Smooth stones are heated and lubricated with oil or essential oils. The therapeutic effects of heat are used to relax muscles more deeply. Used as an extension of the therapist's hands, the stones induce deep relaxation and provide a unique experience many find to be tremendously calming and centering.

Ever just wish someone would step on your back? Shiatsu uses natural body weight to reach deeply into knots and tight muscles to create long- lasting relief. Its un-invasive, clothes-on techniques makes this a great choice for your first massage, and it’s an all-time favourite for seasoned spa-goers.

Suitable for pregnancy.

Shiatsu

6a017d3f96f2ed970c022ad397398b200b.jpg

An Ayurvedic massage that focuses on everything from the upper back, to the face and scalp. It has an incredible list of benefits, including relieving headaches, releasing upper body tension, easing anxiety and reducing insomnia.

During the treatment, you are seated comfortably in a regular chair, and aromatic oil is used on your shoulders, arms, neck, face, and scalp.

You may choose to wear a tank top so Sheila has access to your upper back, and have a hat ready for after your treatment, as your hair can be oily! If not, adjustments can be made: you can request less to no oil, and we can provide warm towels to wrap you up in in lieu of a tank top!


Due to Sheila's schedule, more availability is available if you call us directly to book in for Indian Head Massage.
