Acupressure is a method which derives from Acupuncture but does not make use of needles. This technique is also known as Chair Massage since it is practised on a special chair.

Besides, studies indicate that Acupressure helps reduce migraines and headaches.

Massage for Juniors and Seniors

Children are thrown into a fast-paced life early on. Too many stimuli cause stress, which weakens the immune system, raises blood pressure, contributes to attention deficit disorder (ADD), depression, and hyperactivity. All of these consequences can force the child to adopt a reactive behaviour. The techniques we offer have a positive effect on stress hormones, causing the recipient to be calmer.

These techniques and knowledge help ease physical discomforts caused by conditions like arthritis or osteoporosis, and increase circulation to underutilized muscles. They also have a positive effect on people who have suffered a stroke.

The course is based on a soft-touch massage and focuses on joints, as well as on improving circulation.

Cost: $195

Time: TBA

Hot Stone Massage

A Hot Stone Massage lasts around 1h30. It is not only an enjoyable experience providing prolonged relaxation but also has several health benefits.

During the session, the massage therapist will take the stones out of the water (46-49°C) using specialist tools and perform Swedish Massage movements. The heat, coupled with the massage techniques, offers complete relaxation, while also warming the entire body.

Sports Massage 

A Sports Massage is carried out before an event, after an event, and as a restoration/training massage mainly on-site at an event. It helps prevent muscle and tendon injuries, reduces the strain and discomfort of training and chronic strain patterns. This enables a rapid return to maximum training levels, thus allowing the athlete to recover more quickly from myofascial injury while also being less likely to experience chronic problems. Sports Massage Therapy promotes a preventive approach to athletic training whereby soft tissues are free of trigger points and adhesions, thus contributing to the improvement of peak neuromuscular functioning. It also stimulates circulation, soothes nervous tension, and prepares the athlete for optimal performance while reducing risks of injury.

Reflexology is an alternative medicine involving the application of pressure on the feet and hands using specific techniques by means of the thumb, fingers and hand, and without using any oil or lotion. It relies on a system of zones and reflex zones that presumably reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the assumption that such movements induce a physical change in the body.
Reflexology was introduced in the United States in 1913 by William H. Fitzgerald, M.D. (1.872 à 1.942), an ENT specialist who named it “zone therapy”.  He used vertical lines to divide the body into 10 zones. Eunice D. Ingham (1899-1974) further developed Reflexology in the 1930s and 1940s, by focusing on the feet[3]. Mildred Carter, a former student of Ingham, later advocated for foot reflexology, describing it as a miraculous health method. A mailing from its 1993 publisher stated:
“According to Carter, not only does Reflexology cure the most serious diseases safely and permanently, but it also reverses the ageing process. Get rid of wrinkles, dry skin, age spots and blemishes for good. Thanks to Reflexology, you can treat yourself to a makeover without any discomfort or surgical constraints.”

This course is approved by the Reflexology Association of Canada (RAC) and is delivered by Mary Swaine, Director of Intuitive Energetics. Mary is an N.D./Doctor of Naturopathy, Ph.D. in Spiritual Counseling, Intuitive Radionician, Colour & Sound Therapist, Hypnotherapist, Massage Therapist and Reflexologist.

She is the author of “Foot Reflexology” and has also published 15 books on healing and personal development, 11 children’s books and 3 CDs. She also participated in radio interviews, which you can find on her website at www.energetiqueintuitive.com.

Intuitive Massage / Aromatherapy

The first part of this course will be dedicated to the study of the different elements of Intuitive Massage and the development of intuition and higher psychic senses. This will lead us from psychic consciousness to intuitive consciousness, including the types and levels of extra sensory perception (E.S.P.). We will then cover the evolutionary pathway from the 5 senses to higher sensory perception, methods and techniques.

This course will study the healing of cellular memory. The massage will be performed on the back, legs, feet, arms, hands, neck, face and ears. This Intuitive Massage course will teach you how to be intuitive about what you usually see but are not aware of. It will cover several intuition topics, including the body and auras.

The second part of this course will focus on Aromatherapy. Students will learn how to prepare essential oil blends to produce physically healing oils for muscles, nerves, joints, pain, sciatica, rheumatism, flabby arms, cellulite and ageing.

This section will also cover what emotional and mental healing oils to use for specific painful emotional states or personal and spiritual development, as well as on what part of the body to apply them.
