A therapeutic and relaxing treatment focussed on your soft tissue and joints. Swedish massages are tailored to meet your specific needs. This treatment is ideal if you’re looking to relax or ease tension caused by stress or injury.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

This treatment is well suited for anyone who is a bit harder on their body. By targeting specific areas – including your fascia – this massage helps to loosen knots and ease chronic muscle problems.

HOT STONE MASSAGE

This ancient technique uses heated stones paired with Swedish massage to help you relax, release, and rejuvenate. This treatment is not recommended for clients who are pregnant or have high blood pressure.

PRENATAL MASSAGE

Pregnancy massage helps promote healthy circulation, improve sleep, and reduces stress and pain. Client comfort is important, and this treatment often involves alternate positions with added pillows. While massage is a safe form of treatment during your pregnancy, we encourage you to consult your doctor before booking.

INFANT MASSAGE

Infant massage gently nurtures relaxation.  This can soothe your little one into healthier sleep patterns. 

PARENT + BABY MASSAGE

Give yourself and your little one a space to relax and find ease.  Massage treatment time is split between parent and child, to support your family's wellbeing.

ANNETTE DUNLOP, RMT

Annette is a graduate of Sutherland Chan’s School and Teaching Clinic. Connecting to the body through movement, touch and bodywork is a central piece of Annette’s life and personal healing. The joy of feeling safe, strong and fluid in the body is what she seeks to share with her clients.

Her education in Massage Therapy and Biology has given her a foundation of knowledge; yet, it is only integrated the lived experience of healing from many injuries and treating others during their healing process.

She believes healing power of the body comes from tapping into the instinctual and sensual body that so often gets put on the back burner. She strives to discover, with each unique client, what feels good and healthy to them. She also seeks to share her understanding of movement and holding patterns, introducing clients to unconscious parts of their body in order to treat connected pain and tension.

Annette enjoys diversity in her practice as treatment focus ranges from soft tissue injuries, pain syndromes, depression, anxiety to deep relaxation. She uses a range of techniques (Swedish massage, myofascial treatment, stretching, joint mobilization) as she caters to each person. Her gentle, intuitive approach works alongside the nervous system to best allow changes to integrate. Supported by her further education, such as Visceral Manipulation (Level 1 Barral Institute), she loves to introduce clients to abdominal treatment, a psychosomatic centre which influences the whole person. Passionate about the body, psyche and spirit inspired further courses in Somatic Experiencing (Beginners 1) which seeks to address trauma stored in a wound up nervous system.

KATHERINE MACIVOR, RMT

Central to Kathryn’s practice are principles of empathy, humility, honesty and holism. She believes that everyone should feel comfortable, secure, confident and mobile within their bodies to the best of their abilities.  Her treatments are aimed at working towards this with her patients to help increase their body awareness in order to help improve their quality of life. This includes considering neurological, biomechanical, physiological, social, and emotional factors.

Kathryn graduated from Sutherland-Chan School and Teaching Clinic. Her techniques seek a broad calming of the nervous system as well as specific targeted work to areas of the body that may need attention.  This targeted work addresses each patient’s personal health concerns and goals making Kathryn’s treatments highly individualized.

Kathryn has experience working with a variety of patients including seniors, athletes, people with acute and persistent pain, people experiencing neurological symptoms, pre/post natal, people dealing with cancer, pre/post operation, patients dealing with grief, anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns.

A tranquil environment combined with her calm demeanour, extensive training in dance/movement and a touch based on intention translates gracefully into her hands and the pace of your treatment. Expect to hear beautiful atmospheric music during your appointment as Kathryn is exploring how sound can help facilitate your treatment.

Starting with orthopaedic assessment and weaving together a variety of techniques (including Swedish, joint mobilizations, active release, myofascial release and more) Quinn always seeks to treat the root of the issue. Quinn has a particular interest in sports injury and rehab, scar tissue, fascial lines, and mental health. Every session is completed with a thorough check in. You will always leave with some form of home care to continue your body’s recovery, healing or maintenance.

 

When not treating or teaching/practicing yoga, you can find Quinn singing to zir new little niece, deadlifting at the gym, planning their near future van conversion, or hanging out at MEC.
