ADAPTIVE BODYWORK

A very unique and effective therapeutic Deep Tissue massage. This approach is dynamic and interactive where you help guide the treatment rather than passively receiving. It is intense, but never more than you can handle because you are directing the work. And because you are directing the work, we are always targeting the “sweet spot” and so it is very satisfying on that level. This work is excellent for chronic pain, reduced range of motion and anyone who likes deep work that ‘gets right in there’. It can be performed on a table or on a mat on the floor.

“Usually in massages, I am nearly asleep and hoping the therapist will discover where my body needs attention. In Eric's session, I was involved in the process and could tell him where to work and together we could release tension. He intuitively could follow exactly the chains of tension and release them. I have had tension in my foot for over 20 years and his session truly released it. It was relaxing and englightening all at once. In the days that followed, I felt like my body was moving differently. We focused on lower body, which had been calling for attention. Now, I'm excited to go back and explore what we can release in my upper body." - Jennifer Kruidbos


trigger point therapy

Trigger points or muscle “knots” are sensitive spots in soft tissue. They are found all over the body, but often cluster around injuries and are a major part of back and neck pain. Trigger points can be the source of a surprising amount of pain, and addressing them can be a huge relief. Headaches, sciatica, pain that comes out of nowhere, or wanders and switches sides are all examples of possible trigger point related pain.

TRAGER

A Trager session is a very unique form of massage. It’s approach is gentle yet profound. It helps release deep-seated physical and mental patterns and facilitates deep relaxation, increased physical mobility, and mental clarity.  You'll experience your body set in motion through repetitive rhythmic rocking, shimmering, elongation, and rotation of the tissues in your legs, arms, shoulders, back, neck, chest and abdomen.  It feels light and easy, but it resonates deeply throughout your body; particularly in your joints.  This technique can be integrated with others or we can do an entire session with the Trager approach. Yoga clothes/shorts and sports bra/t-shirt are suggested for this treatment since large areas of the body are often covered in the same movement.

To see it in action, have a look at this video (it’s production value isn’t great, and it’s in Italian, but the practitioner is wonderful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcMSffYJmLc


CBD OIL MASSAGE

 

Try CBD oil for your massage for an extra 10$. CBD is proving to be quite effective against inflammation and pain. People with fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome report considerable relief with the use of CBD oil. The CBD oil I use is sourced here in Canada from an organic hemp farm, and is hand made with love.

“ Fantastic massage, awesome masseur. Really knows what he is doing, takes care to make you comfortable and helps you understand your own tension patterns or injury issues. Very good vibes, and sense of humour.“ - Alison Darby
