According to Traditional Chinese medicine, the Three Treasures are the fundamental energies that maintain human life. They are Jing (essence), Qi (energy) and Shen (spirit), and strengthening and regulating the Three Treasures is one of the primary aims of all the branches and divisions of Chinese Medicine. When the Three Treasures are strong and balanced we have mental, physical and emotional strength. This leads to adaptability, a calm outlook, abundant energy reserves and strong immunity. If we can reach this state, all aspects of life become easier. Let our registered massage therapy and acupuncture treatments help you to reach this state.

Registered Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.

Registered Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved; and physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of Registered Massage Therapy.

Before a treatment, our Massage Therapist will propose a personalized treatment plan based on an initial assessment and health history. The assessment consists of various tests to determine the condition of your muscles and joints. Any personal and health information you provide to our Massage Therapist is completely confidential and will be safeguarded. Your health record cannot be released or transferred without your written consent.

Our Massage Therapist must also obtain your consent to work on any part of your body, regardless of whether you are fully clothed, or fully or partially covered with sheets or blankets. Your privacy will always be respected, and you may withdraw your consent for treatment at any time.

Various specialized movements of the hands, over the skin or clothes, make up the Registered Massage Therapy treatment. The Massage Therapist will work with your level of pain tolerance during the treatment, and the treatment can be stopped at any time should the treatment become uncomfortable.

Acupuncture is the insertion of thin, metal needles to stimulate specific points of the body that reach meridians. These stimulation points are called acupuncture points or acupoints. Traditional Chinese medicine holds that there are 365 commonly used acupuncture points on 20 meridians on the human body. Typically, it takes 15 to 30 minutes of manipulating the needles in these acupuncture points and 30 to 60 minutes of retaining the needles. By doing so, it regulates the flow of Qi throughout the body and restore health to the mind and body, thus balancing the yin and yang. The insertions of needles are manipulated either by the hand or by electrical stimulation, called electroacupuncture.

Is it safe? Does it hurt?

Needles inserted during an acupuncture treatment should be painless. Every patient experience is different; patients may experience bruising, bleeding, needle site pain and sensation, or needle fainting. However, these symptoms may be expected (minimal bleeding) and desired (tingle, tight sensation – “de qi response”). Patients should inform the practitioner if any discomfort arises.

Our Registered Massage therapy and Acupuncture is not covered by OHIP, but many private insurance companies cover treatment from a Massage Therapist or a Acupuncturist as part of their extended healthcare plans. Please consult your policy.
