Massage therapy is the holistic application of physical touch to affect the systems of the body, including the muscular, skeletal, digestive, elimination, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine, and nervous systems. Massage therapists work on your muscles and other soft tissue to help you achieve optimal function of your physical body so that you feel more limber, comfortable and relaxed.

We offer: a couple of lines about each are written out and then there are the three dots and a “more/less” button to see the rest of the copy for each of the below with a little bit about what each is ….

Relaxation and therapeutic massage

A full body remedy to tight muscles, or targeted application of pressure and muscle manipulation to an specific area requiring special attention.

Sports massage

During your sports massage, we will focus on treating aches, pain and injuries that are centred in and around the major muscle groups and associated with recreational activities.

Prenatal massage

A specialized massage for expectant mothers to find relief and relaxation as your body changes. You will be offered various position options to support your body throughout your massage.

Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy

This specialized style of massage is performed by your practitioner holding onto bars attached to the ceiling and using their feet to add extra pressure and compression to your body. In addition to releasing trigger points and softening connective tissues. It is slower and more powerful as it is applied with greater force. Ashiatsu barefoot massage is the deepest tissue massage available and has many long lasting benefits, including reduced chronic pain, increased flexibility and less stress. It is so deep that it even accesses the internal organs, but won’t leave you sore the next day!

What is Yoga Therapy and how does it work:


Quiet the mind and the soul will speak. Reiki is an ancient healing modality with roots in Tibet and Japan used to help shift energy in the body. A technique called palm healing or hands-on healing is used by the Reiki practitioner to read, move and heal energy imbalances.

How does Reiki work?

Reiki sessions can be scheduled as an in-person or distant session. In-person, the client lays down fully clothed on a comfortable padded table similar to a massage table.   The Reiki practitioner places their hands on (head or arms) or off the client (above the client) to allow for Reiki energy to flow. This promotes deep relaxation, reduces pain and activates the body’s natural healing ability. Reiki helps to clear energy blocks leaving the client with an overall sense of greater physical, emotional and spiritual well being.

What is distant Reiki?

Distant Reiki sessions are equally relaxing and beneficial. In a distant Reiki session, the client and practitioner are in different locations on the agreed-upon day and time. The client sits or lays down wherever they feel comfortable,  ready to receive the Reiki energy.  The practitioner sits quietly and then sends the intention of Reiki to flow.

What is Soul Coaching?

Soul Coaching is a powerful way to align your inner being with your outer lived experience. Together with your Soul Coach, you will clear away the mental and emotional clutter. It is through this process that you will develop a deeper understanding and awareness of your authentic and spiritual self allowing you to live a more fulfilling, rewarding and purpose-driven life.


How does Soul Coaching work?

It is only when you reach into the wellspring of your being that the truth of the soul springs forth.” Through a variety of tools and inquiry, your Soul Coach will teach you how to develop your innate intuition and manage your thinking and emotions so you can transform your health, achieve your goals, improve your relationships, strengthen your faith, manifest financial abundance, be of service to others, live your purpose and thrive during challenging times in life.

Ashtanga is a sequence of predictable yoga poses that challenge the practitioner to stay present in the physical experience of the practice using the simple but effective tool of consistent breath work.

You will find space for growth, reflection and modification as you experience your practice unfolding over time.

Prepare for a deeply restorative yin practice that will calm your mind and body in preparation for a restful night of sleep. A combination of breathwork, yin and restorative yoga postures will be sequenced to progressively release tension and relax the muscles.
Yin Yoga is a slower-paced style of yoga in which poses are held for longer periods of time (up to 7 minutes) in order to stimulate the energetic channels of the body. Postures intentionally apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fasciae, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. Yin Yoga invites presence, stillness and an opportunity to settle into a more meditative practice.
Yoga nidra also known as yogic sleep is a state of deep conscious sleep. It is a guided meditation technique where the state of mind is immensely relaxed while still maintaining full consciousness.

The practice of yoga nidra is simple and available to everyone. Ideally done in a lying position or savasana, it is widely touted that 45 minutes of yoga nidra guided meditation feels like 3 hours of regular sleep. Come and find out for yourself!
Classes include gentle movement, breathing practices and guided meditation. The sequences will help bring the body into balance and reduce stress. The practice welcomes use of a chair. Open to students of all levels.


In this class, we will work on strengthening and lengthening muscles while fostering more mindful movement. You will feel and see your body get stronger and your mind become more aware of movements as you progress through each class.

Emphasis is on alignment, breathing and developing core awareness. Moving mindfully and transitioning with intelligent sequencing, we move through a sweet Slow Flow during our practice.
