Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage focuses on helping you reach a state where you can breathe deeply, release tension, and unwind.

Relaxation massage takes a gentle and soothing approach to give you a mini reprieve from life. Depending on your wellness goals, this popular technique can still have a therapeutic intention but also aims to help you breathe deeper and provide a peaceful hour to engage in mindfulness.

  • Tailored to your needs

    Your wellness massage may focus on one specific area, such as your back, neck and shoulders, or as a whole-body approach, including hands, feet and scalp massage. The direction of the appointment is adaptable to your needs.

  • Soothing experience

    I use coconut oil or a lotion to relieve tense muscles, reduce stress, and improve circulation wherever you need it. These mediums allow my hands to glide smoothly over the skin, providing a comfortable and soothing experience.

  • Promotes well-being

    A relaxation massage can create a sense of contentment and improve overall well-being. You will breathe deeper, feel your tension melt away, and experience a calming endorphin release.

Benefits of Relaxation Massage

Whether you feel in “need” or not, a wellness massage offers much more than stress relief! You can experience the following:

  • Improved well-being and mental outlook
  • Faster recovery from post-exercise pain
  • Pain management
  • Relief from headaches
  • Improved energy levels and reduced fatigue
  • Better quality of sleep
  • Release of built-up muscle tension
  • Increased circulation

  • Lessened bloating
  • Minimized PMS symptoms
  • Reduced inflammation

    A safe place

    The massage room is a safe, inclusive and confidential space. You are welcome to chat the whole session, a little bit, or say nothing at all! The main goal is to relax and let your mind and body find rest.

    Positive routine

    Getting massages regularly has many benefits. It provides a positive outing and a chance to socialize with the We Thrive staff, and makes you accountable by doing something healthy for yourself on a reoccurring basis.

    Pain relief

    Acute and chronic pain is exhausting and affects all aspects of your life. Let’s lower your shoulders, ease your headache, and lengthen those tight calf muscles.


    Our bodies want to move. We habitually sit at a computer or stand all day, repeatedly over-straining and weakening the same muscles. We develop muscle imbalance, poor postural habits, and joint stiffness, and that needs attention.

    Digestive stimulation

    The belly can be an emotional body part for people and is often untouched by massage therapists. A belly massage helps stimulate intestinal movement, which can reduce bloating and constipation, help relax tight abdominal muscles, and increase blood and lymphatic circulation. Also, it helps to decrease stress and aids in better digestion and nutrient absorption. I offer relaxation and lymphatic massage to the abdomen; both are gentle techniques.


    Life can be stressful and demanding. A relaxation massage re-energizes, soothes and unwinds both your body and mind. From a soothing head-to-toe massage or a deeper therapeutic approach, this technique benefits everyone.

    Relaxation massage is like a mini vacation for your body: it’s all about letting go of tension and stress.

    Reasons to Book Relaxation Massage

    You’re sore from work

    Do you find yourself sitting or standing for long periods or performing the same action repeatedly? Are you too sore and tired after work to exercise? Being inactive hurts, and you miss out on the things you enjoy! No matter your job, a wellness massage will benefit you.

    You’re sore from injury

    A relaxation massage is a great choice when experiencing pain from an injury. The injury site, as well as any compensating areas, will be included, assisting you in a quicker recovery.

    You’re sore from parenting

    Who needs a time-out more than caregivers? Nursing, holding your baby, and lack of sleep are just a few of the changes involved with parenting. A wellness massage may be the ticket if you're experiencing pain, stress, fatigue and need some you-time.

    You’re sore from surgery

    After surgery, you may find a massage helpful in managing physical discomfort. Massage is a natural way to de-stress and lower cortisone levels while you recuperate.

    You’re not sore at all!

    Relaxation massage is perfect even when you are injury-free and want to enjoy a massage just because you want to. No matter how you look at it, massage can form a key part of your regular self-care routine.

    Regular sessions help improve your overall well-being and leave you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world.

    Top 5 Relaxation Massage FAQs

    • What if I need to cancel or reschedule my appointment?

      You may change or cancel your appointment online up to 48 hours before your massage. You are unable to change reservations online if you are outside this 48 hour window. Please note that the office is closed on weekends, and voicemails will be listened to on the following Monday.

    • Do you offer direct billing?

      Yes, direct billing is offered for Blue Cross, the Telus Health Group, Medavie, and Sunlife, as long as:

      • Your appointment is within reception hours, and
      • You provide your insurance information beforehand

      If you forget and give your details on the day of your massage, the receptionist might be able to submit it on your behalf, but most likely will store it on file and have it ready for next time!

      Please note direct billing is not available for mobile massage treatment, but you can submit the receipt to your insurance plan.

    • What techniques are used during a relaxation massage?

      I use Swedish massage-style strokes for a wellness massage to ensure maximum relaxation. I combine long gliding strokes, effleurage, picking up, wringing, and kneading techniques with lotion or oil and your desired pressure.

    • How much pressure is applied during a relaxation massage?

      The amount of pressure is individual, and it depends on your comfort level and the overall tension of your muscles. With your guidance, I will work with you and find the right amount of pressure to benefit your needs.

    • What should I expect during a relaxation massage?

      As with every massage appointment, you can advise me of where on your body you want attention. After we discuss this, I tell you to remove your clothing to whatever level you are comfortable with and explain how to lie on the massage table. I leave the room for a couple of minutes and return with a knock on the door before entering. After adjusting the pillows and ensuring you are comfortable, the massage begins.

      Typically, I'll ask you to take a few deep breaths as I apply the oil. I will check in with you for pressure depth and comfort but will otherwise leave you alone to enjoy your experience.
