Massage Therapy encompasses a broad range of techniques and approaches. At BMMT, I focus on assessing and treating each individual. Your treatment may include Active Release Techniques (ART), Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release, Visceral Manipulation (treatment of the organs) as well as NeuroKinetic Therapy. I will often combine techniques in one treatment. and each technique has a specific purpose and achieves different goals including: relaxation, lengthening tissue, releasing trigger points, addressing adhesions in muscle fiber, reducing pain and muscle tension, as well as reprogramming compensation patterns.

As a certified sport massage therapist SMT(C) with the Canadian Sport Massage Therapy Association, I trained for over 4 years to become adept at the different requirements of a sport therapist including becoming a Sport First Responder. Sport massage is not one technique such as "deep tissue massage". It is an approach and understanding of how to treat an athlete during training, during competition and in recovery. It comprises rehabilitation assessment and treatment for injuries; pre, during and post event treatment; and post training or post event recovery. A visit with a certified sport massage therapist during training can also help identify muscle imbalances and identify areas where problems may be developing.

Stress reduction and relaxation is the basis of every massage treatment regardless of the technique used. Specifically, relaxation massage aids in decreasing your body’s response to stress by helping to reduce the nervous system firing that trigger’s the “fight and flight” response. You will likely experience a decrease in muscle tension, a slower, calmer breathing pattern, and a mild drowsiness. Don’t be surprised if your stomach gurgles…this is a good sign that your body is turning off the stress response and blood is flowing back to your abdominal organs.

Therapeutic Massage can be used to address a specific injury, condition, or pain. It can be used during acute, subacute or chronic stages of healing. During acute stages a milder treatment may be used to help reduce inflammation whereas later stages may require more aggressive treatment techniques to eliminate scar tissue or trigger points in the soft tissue.


ELDOA Classes

ELDOA classes are for individuals interested practising the ELDOA postures in a group setting.

ELDOA classes are for individuals interested practising the ELDOA postures in a group setting. ELDOA are a series of postural exercises you perform to create tension in a joint with the goal of increasing the space in that joint. This is effective to open space between individual vertebrae in the spine and peripheral joints like the shoulder and hips. Using ELDOA can create space in a joint which can: improve joint mechanics, increase blood flow, reduced pressure on intervertebral discs, reduce pain, increase spinal disc rehydration, improve muscle tone, improve posture, and create a sense of well being and awareness.

Classes are 60 minutes and begin with a warm up and body awareness exercises using the ELDOA method of head and pelvic positions. An ELDOA posture is held for one minute. There are dozens of ELDOA postures but only 3-5 specific postures will be done in a class with the remainder of the time spent on movements to prepare your body for the specific ELDOA postures to be performed. You should wear comfortable work out clothing and bring a yoga mat..
