  • Can you do Direct Billing?
    Yes! We are able to directly bill with most major insurance companies under Telus Health (Manulife, CanadaLife, etc.). Insurance plans under SunLife, BlueCross and Greenshield will need to be completed by Mark. If we cannot find and connect with your insurance provider, you will have to claim on your own. We provide digital receipts for you to use.
  • What is the difference between Sports Massage and Relaxation Massage?
    Sports massage is a type of massage specifically designed to help athletes and those with physically active lifestyles maintain and improve their performance. It is also perfect for addressing acute and chronic injuries. Sports massage utilizes techniques to improve circulation, reduce stress, and improve range of motion and flexibility. Methods include deep tissue work, manual therapy, fascial stretch/release techniques, joint mobilizations and more. Relaxation massage is a type of massage that focuses more on overall relaxation rather than specific areas of the body. It is intended to reduce stress and help the recipient feel relaxed and at ease. This is your typical 'spa' massage.
  • What results can I expect with Fascial Stretch Therapy?
    Results vary depending on your specific needs and goals. You can expect to see immediate treatment results for pain and stress relief, increased mobility and restored function within 1-3 sessions.
