Deep Tissue Massage
"Loved my treatment with James Dobby. He got my lower back pain fixed in no time, can only recommend this guy. Great massage. He suggested some helpful exercises to get me training again. Will certainly see him again."
"Had a massage session with Colleen today and my body instantly feels way better from the fatigue I got from work. I required more than medium strength and she was able to provide the right amount of pressure on the right area! Highly recommend her!"
" I've had many great experiences here with Megan- she is wonderful and does a great job. The rooms are nice (I love that the massage tables are heated!) and cozy. It is easy to book online and rebook when necessary. I've recommended this place to my partner and 2 colleagues, all of whom have come and loved their experience too. "
" Love, love, love, CARLY! Best massages I have probably ever gotten. She definitely listens to where I am hurting and address said issues. I always get a deep tissue massage and leave feeling much better. Thanks, Carly!!!! "
" Excellent people, very organized booking system and I love the direct billing. I appreciate the opportunity of both locations. The new location is very inviting and open and quite pleasing. Good luck! Michelle ROCKS! "
" This place is wonderful. So peaceful and relaxing. I had the best massage today and feel amazing! I highly recommend visiting them to fix whatever ails you. Travis rocks! "
" I've been going to Equilibrium for a little while for chronic pain, and Hannah has been my RMT since the beginning. I can't recommend her enough! She works magic on perpetually sore and exhausted muscles, and has been a huge help in treating my pain. "
" Had an amazing experience at Equilibrium today! Great atmosphere and customer service from start to finish. I can’t recommend Travis Davison highly enough. He was awesome! Really listened to my issues and made sure to focus on the areas I needed work on. Already booked my return visit. Well done Travis!! "
" I have been looking for someone that could deliver an amazing massage and I found the ticket with Jesse Hansen!!!! She is absolutely fantastic, knowing exactly what I needed and putting heat on every part she had just massaged and moving on. She is telepathic I am sure. I will be back to her from now on. Thanks Jesse for making my day with your 90 minutes of total relaxation, and a blissful, Zen-like experience."
" Ashley is the first RMT I’ve ever seen who has actually listened to what’s bothering me every time and addressed it! She’s lovely and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thanks to the whole Equilibrium team! "
" I have been using Equilibrium since October 2015. The results for me personally have been outstanding. Ashley is an amazing RMT. She has allowed me to become pain-free and gain additional mobility. Kat’s acupuncture treatments have also been of great benefit. I have recommended Equilibrium to all my friends and co-workers. "
" Wendy was awesome. Best massage I’ve ever had. I’ll be back for sure. "
" That was hands down the best massage I’ve ever had! Thank you, Wendy, for those kinks I had in my upper back and neck were hell. You saved me from the pain I had been experiencing for weeks in my dead-end job! Thanks so much, I will definitely be returning here. "
" Ali is irreplaceable. So many RMTs I try don’t come close. She is so technically precise. She’d make a great surgeon. I missed her for 8 months and I paid for it… there is a reason I booked her 3 times in 4 days. 🙂 "
" My visit to Equilibrium was great as usual. It’s apparent that this company is trying to set itself apart from other providers of massage therapy etc and it’s excellent to see. Melanie was superb and made me feel welcome and comfortable. She was professional yet friendly and I would recommend anyone to visit Equilibrium to see any of the RMTs that I have seen. "
" I was not used to having massage until I met Nancy. She is fantastic! With her gentle fingers moving through my body, I felt my tight muscles could relax completely. Moreover, her nice voice and easy-going character made my tense nerves relaxed too! "
" What a wonderful therapist I have found in Ali Mitchell. She is both professional and personable and creates a safe and peaceful environment for each visit. And her massages are truly amazing! "
" I believe that my therapist (Ali) is helping me on my own healing journey on a physical, mental and emotional level. "
" I just had another amazing massage from Kyla. After another stressful day, her strong hands melted the kinks out of my tense muscles. She is professional and thoughtful in her approach and each session has left me feeling rejuvenated. "
" Ali Mitchell is a gifted Registered Massage Therapist. I am lucky to have found her after experiencing serious back injuries in a car accident. Ali stands apart from other therapists I have seen for her knowledge, compassion, professionalism and her innate ability to improve and resolve pain issues. "
" What a great place to go if you want to leave feeling better! Ali Mitchell is truly wonderful. Not only does she have healing hands, a deep understanding about how the body works and a profound capacity for empathy, her presence is calming and lovely to be around. "
" Hi Victor- the “test-run” last weekend was a success!! I didn’t have any hip-pain during or after running (approx. 8km)!! Thanks again for helpful recommendations and a great treatment! "
" Thank you Brenda, you get to my spots and give me the relief and a resolution and for a price that takes my dollar further!! "
" Equilibrium Massage Therapy is a wonderful service! The therapists are kind, compassionate and highly skilled at what they do. I have been a regular client of Brenda’s since 2003, and don’t know what I would do without massage therapy. I highly recommend Equilibrium! "
" I was in pain in my neck, right shoulder, & back for 2 whole months…I feel so much better, I could cry!!! Thank You! "
Deep Tissue Massage is beneficial to athletes and anyone who needs to relieve tension in their deep musculature. Deep Tissue Massage consists of a group of special techniques used to access deeper muscular layers unreachable by traditional Swedish massage. The techniques employed, work with the body’s responses by slowly sinking into tight muscles allowing them to “melt” permitting deeply held tension to be released.
Deep tissue massage does not need to be painful to be effective, but may be bearably uncomfortable. Any initial discomfort felt from the deep tissue work will lessen within a few moments as the muscle begins to naturally relax. At certain points during the massage, there are usually various levels of discomfort and depends on the area being worked and the patients level of tolerance to discomfort. It is important to tell your massage therapist when the discomfort you experience is outside your comfort zone as good deep tissue therapy does not have to involve extreme discomfort. Slow techniques should allow the muscle tissue to respond to the pressure with minimal discomfort. Communication between the RMT and the patient is essential to maintain the balance between deep pressure, without pain.
