Registered Massage Therapists are licensed and educated to practice for cases that exceed relaxation and muscle tension relief alone. Although they typically have experience with working on relaxation and stress relief, and RMT can focus on rehabilitation and more severe cases on the body and mind. For example, sports injuries, torn muscles, and pregnancy focused massage. Some RMTs can also combine their techniques with other practices and theories to achieve better results on their patients.

No pain, no gain as they say! Depending on what kind of massage therapy you’re looking for or recommended to you, you can feel some pressure on your body. This is not unexpected but do not hesitate to communicate any discomfort to your practitioner and to release pressure or to be more gentle.
We understand if you’re tight on time. It’s generally okay to, for example, have acupuncture and massage on the same day. Sometimes it’s recommended and can promote relaxation and healing effects.
