Remedial Massage

AMC Icon 60

Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. It’s performed to create favourable conditions for the body to return to normal health.

 

Relaxation Massage

AMC Icon 60Relaxation Massage is a foundational principle of all massage styles.  Fostering mind and body connection, recalibration of parasympathetic (‘rest and digest’) aspects of nervous system, and affirming self regulation within the person.

Swedish Massage

AMC Icon 60

Swedish Massage is the most common style of massage therapy. It involves variety of soft tissue manipulation, utilizing light to deep kneading, stroking, tappotement. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing.

Myofascial Massage

AMC Icon 60Myofascial Massage is the three-dimensional application of sustained pressure and movement into the fascial (connective tissue) network in order to treat fascial restrictions and postural distortions. Myofascial release is an effective therapeutic approach in the relief of cervical pain, back pain, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, neurological dysfunction, restriction of motion, chronic pain, and headaches.

Lymphatic Drainage

AMC Icon 60Lymphatic Drainage is the manual stimulation of the interstitial fluids of the body, to return built-up wastes and excessive fluid to the blood so that the organs can deal with it.  The technique itself is very light and very relaxing, comprising gentle strokes and pumps on the skin with some deeper work over the lymph nodes, especially in the abdomen.  The technique was largely developed in Europe but is now used worldwide.

Pregnancy Massage

AMC Icon 60PregnancyMassage is customized to an expectant mother's needs, promoting relaxation and giving relief for such complaints as lower back pain, swollen ankles and fatigue.

Silicone Cupping

AMC Icon 60Silicone Cupping therapy is a beneficial therapy that assists with range of motion,  fascial restrictions and trigger point elimination, while maintaining hydration within soft tissue due to vacuum pressure created by the cups. 

Sports Massage

AMC Icon 60

Sports massage helps with muscle systems used for a particular sport, employing a variety of approaches to help athletes before, during, or after sports events. It can also be used to promote strength, flexibility and help prevent injuries. The therapist will use variety of soft tissue techniques, such as myofascial work, compression, pressure point therapy, friction, and joint mobilization.

 

Trigger Point Therapy

AMC Icon 60Trigger Point Therapy is based on discoveries by Drs. Janet Travell and David Simons, in which they found the causal relationship between chronic pain and its source (fascial congestion). Myofascial trigger point therapy is used to relieve muscular pain and dysfunction through applied pressure and release of these points and referring pain areas.
