Massage Therapy
Massage Therapy In Ajax Ontario


An understanding of how the muscles, bones and joints work together, combined with the advantage of being licensed to provide both chiropractic and massage therapy allows us to provide the highest standard of care to our patients. Our treatments are hands-on, one-on-one, and specialized in order to ensure the best outcome for each individual patient. 

Massage can help to relax tight muscles, alleviate stress, help rid your body of toxins and speed healing. When used in conjunction with chiropractic lifestyle care, it can help you achieve your health goals. Our office provides myofacial release and other techniques that help your body through whatever crisis your muscles may be in. .

Types of Massage Offered:



  • Increases blood circulation easing tension in the body’s muscles and improving muscle flexibility.

  • Stimulates the skin and nervous system to soothe the nerves, reducing both emotional and physical stress.

  • Increases the oxygen flow in the blood releasing toxins from the muscles which in turn flushes out the lactic and uric acid and other metabolic wastes in your tissues. These benefits can dramatically shorten recovery time for muscle strain injuries.

  • A staple in most stress management programs.



  • This treatment targets the deeper tissue structure of muscles and can affect connective tissue, known as fascia.

  • Helps with both small muscle injuries as well as chronic problems. 

  • An excellent way to deal with whiplash, sports injuries, postural misalignment, spasms and muscle tension.

  • Benefits include releasing specific chronic muscle tension, muscular knots, or adhesions.




  • Helpful to ease discomforts and bodily stresses during various stages of pregnancy, in particular after the second trimester.

  • Pregnant women are now turning to prenatal massages (during pregnancy) and postnatal (after childbirth) for comfort from backaches, headaches, leg cramps, stiff neck and edema (swelling), relaxation, stress reduction and overall wellness. 




Possible benefits include:

  • Detoxifies the body by stimulating lymphatic drainage: Indian Head Massage stimulates and improves lymphatic drainage and blood flow to the neck, thus helping to remove waste products from the body.

  • Relieves sleeplessness, restlessness and insomnia: These are often side-effects of stress and an Indian Head Massage relieves stress and promotes relaxation by attacking the physical symptoms, thus allowing for a deeper sense of wellbeing and relaxation.

  • Relieves symptoms of anxiety and depression: Massaging the head encourages the supply of oxygen to the brain which is one of the best ways of reducing anxiety and of lifting one’s mood. 

  • Helps prevent migraines, headaches and back pain: Often tension in the upper back, neck and head lead to migraines, headaches and back pain, and sometimes depression.

  • Renews energy levels: Indian Massage has a powerful effect in bringing the energy of the body back into balance.

  • Promotes hair growth: The massage increases nourishment and oxygen to the scalp and hair follicle which in turns stimulates hair growth.
