Back pain, leg pain, headaches, and overall tension in the neck, shoulders, and the rest of the body is so common. Our wonderful Registered Massage Therapists are highly experienced and they can help you to relax, and release tension. Our RMTs have additional training in prenatal massage, and even in infant massage! Some of the most common reasons to see a Registered Massage Therapist include reducing and eliminating pain, improving joint mobility, reducing muscular tension, and alleviating musculoskeletal disorders associated with every day stress.

Fertility Services

Massage can work wonders when it comes to aiding in the fertility process! A few of the many ways it can help include helping to promote hormonal balance, scar tissue massage, increasing blood flow and circulation to the uterus, improving endocrine system communication, and encouraging the liver to get rid of excess hormones. Plus, it is a great way for you to reduce stress and stress hormones, and help you to relax!

Pregnancy Care

Massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce feelings of anxiety and depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, reduce swelling and edema, and improve labour outcomes and newborn health. Our wonderful RMTs have specialized training in pregnancy massage to ensure you and baby will be safe, and in the best possible hands. You will have the choice of being side lying with lots of support and extra comfort from added pillows, or on your back if you are comfortable. We also have a special pregnancy pillow with a supported belly cut-out for those who prefer to be lying on their stomach. Your practitioner will go over the best choice for you, upon your arrival.

Postpartum Care

Postpartum massage is well known for relaxation, stress reduction, pain relief and other health benefits. Unique postpartum benefits include hormone regulation, reduced swelling, better sleep, and improved breastfeeding. More advanced therapy methods can help restore your body to its pre-pregnancy condition, while speeding up healing and assisting with caesarean birth recovery.

Pediatric Services

Massage therapy can benefit both infants and children in many ways. For infants, massage can help reduce the symptoms of gas, colic, and constipation, while also aiding in digestion and improving blood flow circulation. It can also release Oxytocin, which is the Nurturing or love hormone. This helps baby feel safe and relaxed which will in turn promote good sleep.

Children of all ages can also benefit. It can be effective and healing for children experiencing the following:

• Diabetes
• Asthma
• Skin issues
• Arthritic problems
• Immune system deficiencies
• Hyperactivity disorders
• Athletic injuries
• Growing pains
• Stress
• Depression
• Anxiety

Here are a few services that work well in conjunction with Massage Therapy. Please contact us anytime to help you put together the best team for your needs!

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a treatment that has been around for thousands of years! It is a gentle and effective therapy to support health and well-being. Generally quite painless, the practice involves inserting tiny needles along energy meridians in the body to help stimulate balance and improve physical and mental health.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care can transform the health of the whole family, ranging from newborn babies, to children to older adults. It is a manual therapy used to put the body into optimal alignment and restore nervous system function, while also reducing pain, increasing flexibility and range of motion, and reducing stress.

Pelvic Health Physiotherapy

At The WOMB, we prioritize pelvic health in all that we do! Pelvic Health Physiotherapy can help women prepare for childbirth, as well as to restore and recover afterwards. We use a combination of client education, evidence-based manual therapy, and exercise prescription to optimize the health of the pelvic region.
