Massage Therapy is one of the oldest recognized methods of healing and preventative care. It is a safe and effective treatment for reducing stress, decreasing muscle pain, rehabilitating and augmenting physical function, and gaining an overall sense of well-being. The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function or relieve pain; as such, massage therapists will use a variety of techniques to help facilitate this purpose, and might also prescribe self-care to the client so the process of healing can continue at home.

Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, manual approach, and provides the diagnosis, treatment and preventative care for issues and disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints, as well as soft tissue. Adjustments help relieve pain and restore normal functioning to the joints and supporting muscles and ligaments, with the goal of helping you feel physically able and functioning as quickly as possible. Jeff uses a combination of treatments including adjustment, Active Release Therapy, orthotics and acupuncture, based on individual need.

TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE ACUPUNCTURE | During your initial acupuncture treatment Sophia will examine your chief complaint, along with other symptoms you may be experiencing, while following the Traditional Chinese Medicine method of assessment. This involves verbal discussion of your condition, along with Tongue and Pulse analysis. Based on this assessment a treatment protocol will be developed tailored to your own unique constitution. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to provide updates and reassess goals to further refine your treatment protocol.
WITH CHIRO | Dr. Jeff Goodyear specializes in contemporary medical acupuncture in order to target and stimulate muscle groups to increase mobility. Billing: Jeff administers acupuncture under his chiropractic license, meaning for insurance purposes acupuncture treatments provided by him are billed and covered under your chiropractic plan.
Ceb'sile Ndlangamandla, DOMP
Osteopathy is a holistic manual therapy that uses diagnostic palpation and gentle manipulation to address somatic dysfunction. Treatment is not only limited to the spine, joints and muscles; but also involves treatment directed at the cranium intended to have an effect on the central nervous system. Osteopathic treatment also encompasses the circulatory, lymphatic and digestive systems. During a treatment Ceb'sile will use gentle manipulation of soft tissue, joints, the visceral organs as well as craniosacral techniques.
The objective of osteopathic treatment is to restore balance where restriction or abnormal tension in the body may impede proper functioning. Treatment is based on the practitioner's understanding that the body's systems are inter-related, therefore a restriction in one area of the body may manifest as dysfunction in another area. Ceb'sile's role is to seek out and release restrictions in order to restore free movement of the tissues. By doing so, aiding in the body’s already existing ability to heal itself.
Hot Stone Massage
ORTHOTICS | Orthotic fittings are offered free of charge from Dr. Jeff Goodyear. Check with your insurance provider to confirm if you need a note from your family doctor prior to ordering your orthotics.
HOT STONE MASSAGE | Dark basalt stones are used for hot stone therapy as they retain heat for a long period of time, making them ideal for massage. Hot stones promote circulation, relax muscles and stubborn knots, and stimulate the “rest and digest” nervous system. The stones are used both as massage tools and as placement stones to supplement the massage. Combining traditional Swedish massage with various hot stone techniques, Sophia Bolos RMT has developed unique treatments to suit the needs of each individual.
REFLEXOLOGY | A reflexology treatment with Jocelyn Bognot RMT can be booked for 45-60min. This massage treatment will focus on your lower legs and feet, and with the use of relaxing techniques can help increase circulation of blood and lymph, calm the nervous system, relieve stress and anxiety, and even promote better sleep.
TMJ MASSAGE | TMJ dysfunction can have symptoms that include difficulty chewing, pain in an around the jaw and ear, persistent headaches, jaw clicking or locking, dizziness and ear aches. Treatment for TMJ dysfunction by Kristin Scales RMT will include massage of the head, neck, shoulders, face and jaw. Intra-oral massage of the mastic (chewing) muscles may be performed with a gloved hand, at the comfort of the client, to further relieve tension in the jaw.
CUPPING MASSAGE | For this treatment, during your massage Kristin Scales RMT will suction sterilized plastic cups lightly on the skins surface to help separate the layers of superficial fascia which can be effective in releasing fascial restrictions that can cause pain or restrict your normal range of motion. Cupping can be beneficial for treating headaches, low back pain, rotator cuff pain, trigger points, carpal tunnel syndrome, postural problems, increase circulation, and soften scars. The cups can leave marks on the skin which are not bruises but might feel tender, and may last upwards of 8-12 days.
