Physiotherapy is used to improve a patient's physical functions through physical examination, diagnosis, prognosis, physical intervention, rehabilitation and patient education. Often working within health care teams or independently, physiotherapists assist people to restore, maintain, and maximize their strength, function, movement, and overall well-being. Physiotherapists have in-depth knowledge of how the body works, and how the body moves. They are considered experts in the field of non-surgical treatment of a wide range of musculoskeletal problems and injuries, as well as their prevention. They use specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose, and treat various conditions, injuries, and disabilities.

Swedish AND Relaxation Massage
One of our most popular treatments, relaxation massage is a light to medium pressure massage that uses many superficial and large flowing strokes. This treatment induces a state of total relaxation and stress reduction in our patients. Swedish Relaxation Massage is focused on calming the nervous system, improving circulation, bringing a sense of peace and reducing your overall stress.
This massage concentrates on specific areas you need worked on. The focus is to release chronic restrictions and pain from deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue also known as facia. The benefits are increased flexibility and range of motion, increased circulation and the release of muscle tension and pain. Receiving consecutive treatments can ensure a lasting change.
Today's Reflexology is based upon Physiotherapist Eunice D. Ingram's map of foot reflexes. These reflex points correspond to all the organs and systems of the body. A deep state of relaxation, facilitating the balancing of all the bodies' functions results from applying specific pressures to the reflex points. Reflexology also promotes improved circulation and detoxification via its stimulation to the nervous system and other energy systems such as acupuncture meridians. It is beneficial in managing stress induced and chronic conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, headaches/migraines, PMS/menopause and other fertility issues, lower back pain, arthritis, digestive and circulatory issues and more.
Manual lymphatic drainage
Manual lymphatic drainage is a type of massage based on hypothesis that it will encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow to assist in reduction of localized swelling. The treatment can be beneficial for people suffering from lymphedema, recovering from surgeries and treatments like liposuction.
The anti cellulite massage
The anti-cellulite massage is a special massage modality designed specifically to target cellulite and help with the reduction and elimination of cellulite on the affected areas. The anti-cellulite massage works by breaking down the underlying fat in the areas affected by cellulite. Additionally, the therapy aims to increase blood circulation in the affected areas thereby accelerating the recovery process.
