It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff neck, back and shoulders, TMJ, Sciatica, Tendonitis, and other overuse injuries. The treatment can be uncomfortable, so communicate with your therapist during the treatment and to report any lasting discomfort post-treatment.

Stress relief/relaxation treatments and pre/post natal massages are all classified as Therapeutic massage. Just don't choose Therapeutic Deep!

Matthew graduated from the International Academy of Massage Therapy in Ottawa, completing the accelerated program in 2019. He has been studying body mechanics and healing for more than 15 years.

Matthew specialises in treating chronic pain; from old injuries or repetitive use, with Fascial Restructuring.

When a person has pain or lack of normal movement there is a problem along a chain of muscles. Fascial restructuring is a unique approach getting to the core of the problem. Usually where you are experiencing the pain is not the source of the problem. That is a symptom resulting from another part of the muscle chain that is “stuck”. By releasing the part that is “stuck” it allows the muscles that are over worked to relax and go back into place; increasing range of motion and relieving pain. Using the maps of fascial lines that outline how the body’s muscle systems function together gives a guide of where to look based on your symptoms. Using sustained pressure the body will naturally release and move back into place. Using this method you can make lasting changes, relieving chronic pain.
