At Unpain Clinic, our Registered Massage Therapists practice a variety of modalities to promote healing, relaxation and well-being.
Stress reduction is the basis of every massage treatment. A relaxation massage looks at the body as a whole. Using a variety of long, flowing strokes the intention of a relaxation massage is to create an overall mental, physical and spiritual state of well-being. There is less emphasis on working out the serious tension and adhesions in the muscle tissue and your pain is never pushed to your limits in order to get the muscle to release. Relaxation massage lowers stress levels, improves both vascular and lymphatic circulation, lowers blood pressure, improves mental clarity and decreases muscular tension.
Sport massage helps to enhance an athlete’s performance and training. Regular massage has become an integral part of any athletic routine because the benefits show through in quicker recovery and improved performance.
Anyone who is physically active can benefit. Sports massage focuses on particular muscle groups related to your specific activity, from weight training to golfing, cycling or hockey.
A combination of massage techniques will aid in the prevention of injuries, decrease muscle soreness, improve flexibility and help shorten recovery time.
Offered by a Thailand-trained therapist who re-educated in Canada, this form of massage is aptly named “Thai Yoga Massage,” as it combines Indian Ayurvedic principles, acupressure with assisted yoga postures to release tight muscles and rebalance the body. This interactive yet gentle approach is highly therapeutic and often resolves tough trigger points and tension without pain. Clients appreciate the value in this service as they feel that they have enjoyed a massage plus an invigorating yoga class, in half the time.
Therapeutic Massage can be used to address a specific injury, condition or pain. It can be used during acute, sub-acute or chronic stages of healing. It is used to treat musculoskeletal disorders and complaints and employs a dedicated set of techniques to achieve a measure of relief.
During acute stages, a milder treatment may be used to help reduce inflammation. During later stages, patients may require (and better tolerate) more aggressive treatment techniques to eliminate scar tissue or trigger points in the soft tissue.
Reiki is a Japanese technique used to treat energy imbalance, stress reduction and relaxation within the body through energy transfer between the patient and therapist. This improves the patient’s self-healing mechanisms, restores overall equilibrium and allows for relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being.
Reflexology is the application of manual therapy on the feet and hands by applying the right amount of pressure to evoke a systemic response. These body parts contain reflex points that are directly linked to organ systems and cellular processes within the body and by stimulating them, the therapist is improving function in these areas.
This technique is a comprehensive system of multiple approaches working to increase joint spacing through gentle mobilization of soft tissues around joints. Overall pain and dysfunction are reduced, with an increase in range of motion and strength. Assessment and treatment of injuries in conjunction with postural stabilization make this a highly effective approach to pain management and recovery.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that has been used for years to to release tensions deep in the body to decrease pain and dysfunction. Using ultra-light pressure to correct abnormalities in the cerebrospinal fluid, this technique restores optimal brain and body function. It is used to treat a multitude of disorders, from migraines to post-traumatic stress disorder, and improves whole-body health.
Cupping is offered by both our acupuncturist (traditional fire cupping) and our massage therapists. Although cupping has many versatile uses for acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is specifically used by our massage therapists to painlessly assist with the release of painful fascial adhesions. This provides increased range of motion and a reduction in trigger point activation.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage incorporates jade stones into relaxation and therapeutic massage, working in alternating temperatures, which enables the therapist to work at a deeper level with less effort and allow more comfort for the client.
These stones have been cut to various shapes and sizes and then polished providing a very smooth and silky feeling on the skin. They are non-porous and do not harbor any bacteria. Jade is a protective stone believed to heal stressed organs and discharge toxins.
It slows the aging process and strengthens the body’s natural defense.
Myofascial release is a gentle hands-on form of stretching that evaluates and treats fascial connective tissue restrictions and muscle tension. It works to increase space between joints to allow for better range of motion and decreased pain.
With a range of disciplines, our massage therapists share the Unpain Clinic philosophy of bringing clients into a lifestyle of improved comfort, health and rejuvenation.
