Deep Tissue Therapeutic Massage

Used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains

Deep tissue massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue in your body by using firm pressure and slow, deliberate strokes. People who suffer from chronic pain, high blood pressure, or muscle injury and overuse tend to benefit most from deep tissue massage. Deep tissue technique uses slower, deeper strokes. The massage professional may even use specially designed massage tools or their elbow in certain areas to apply pressure. Be sure to communicate openly with your massage therapist about the pressure they’re using and your comfort level. Some pain is to be expected, but it should be manageable and should never feel like you’re “bracing” your muscles. Deep tissue massage helps to break up scar tissue, which is often the cause of continuous pain and stiffness after surgery.

Relaxation / Swedish Massage

Promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension

Swedish massage uses a system of long gliding strokes, kneading and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of muscles, generally in the direction of blood flow towards the heart and sometimes combined with active and passive movements of the joints. It is used to promote general relaxation, improve circulation and range of motion, and relieve muscle tension. Swedish massage, like many other types of massage, has many benefits that not only provide positive physical changes, but mental and emotional changes, as well. Stress and pain relief, increased circulation, relaxation, and complementary alternative medicine are just some of the benefits that come with regular Swedish massage. If you are in need of one or more of these benefits, visiting a certified, experienced Swedish massage therapist may help bring you closer to overall health and happiness.

Smooth stones are heated and then lubricated with oil or essential oils where the therapeutic effects of heat are used to relax muscles more deeply. Used as an extension of the therapist’s hands, the use of massage stones induces deep relaxation and provides a unique experience many find to be tremendously calming and centering. With hot stone massage, tension melts away as a result of heat, allowing your massage therapist to access deeper layers of muscle.

Massage with Visceral and Neural Manipulation

What is visceral and neural manipulation?

“Viscera” relates to the internal organs of the body, such as the intestines, liver, and kidneys. Visceral Manipulation is designed to provide pain relief by treating problems with the movement of our organs relative to each other and the rest of our bodies. It assesses and treats the structural relationships between organs and their attachments to the ligaments and fascia. Surgical scars, adhesions, illness, posture, or injury can cause strains in the connective tissues of this system. Our body compensates for these strains, developing functional or structural problems that can be far from the site of restriction.

Neural Manipulation assists the free movement of the nerves in their surroundings; that is, in relation to neighbouring muscles, fascia, narrow passages in the aponeurosis, organs and bones. A nerve can only function properly when it is able to move freely in its surrounding tissues.

Both Visceral and Neural Manipulation are manual therapy practices that use light, gentle, and precise manipulation forces that encourage alignment, mobility, tone and own natural mechanisms of the visceral organs, the nerves, and their supporting connective tissues. Both manipulations are especially helpful in those suffering from trauma, postural strain, and chronic stress or pain.

These manipulations have the possibility to affect the normal physiological function of specific nerves and organs, their function and related systems and the structural integrity of the entire body. Little and precisely directed manipulation usually creates the greatest effects due to the gentle and often highly reactive nature of neural and visceral tissues. The therapist feels tension that is within the client’s body, any altered or decreased motion within the visceral and neural systems, as well as patterns of restriction they have created throughout the body.

This therapy can help facilitate the body’s ability to adapt and repair itself to health and homeostasis.


Promotes wellness, alleviates pain and treats various mental, physical and emotional conditions.

Acupuncture is considered a safe treatment as long as it is performed by a qualified practitioner, such as the acupuncturist at Healing Point Massage Therapy. It is an alternative to pharmaceutical treatments, is non-toxic and adverse reactions are minimal. The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes over 100 conditions that acupuncture can be used to treat.

Your acupuncturist will start by taking a comprehensive health history in order to gain a complete understanding of your health. This will allow them to create an individualized treatment plan for you, and let you know what to expect. With your consent, you will receive an acupuncture treatment on the first visit, and a personalized treatment plan and schedule. 

At Healing Point Massage Therapy we provide different acupuntures treatments in order to help clients in varying ways. Treatments may include acupuncture and other associated modalities including: cupping, guasha, tuina, electroacupuncture, sound healing, and hypnosis.

Acupuncture can provide relief and treatment for a wide range of conditions.
These include:
• Pain (headaches, migraines, TMJD, gout, colic, tramatic and post-op pain)
• Neurological (neuralgia, strokes, Bell’s palsy, insomnia)
• Respiratory (allergic thinitis, tonsillitis, asthma)
• Digestive (epigastric pain, nausea, vomiting, cholecystitis)
• Urogenital (urinary retention, prostatitis, UTIs, sexual disorders
• Gynaecological and Obstetric (dysmenorrhea, PMS, infertility)
• Cardiovascular (hypotension/hypertension, angina pectoris)
• Mental & Emotional (depressions, addiction, schizophrenia)
• Pediatric (diarrhea, convulsions, paroxysmal cough)
• Skin (herpes zoster, neurodermatitis, acne vulgaris)

Tuina is a Chinese therapeutic massage technique that promotes circulation in patients. Practitioners often with it in conjunction with acupuncture to treat various conditions, particularly muskoskeletal.

Electroacupuncture is a treatment when an acupuncturist further stimulates the acupuncture points in a patient by stimulating the needles with an electric current.

Guasha utilizes a smooth-edged instrument that is pressed firmly along the skin’s surface. This stimulates oxygenation of the tissues and breaks up any stagnation.

HypnoPuncture is a combination of Hypnosis and Acupuncture. Hypnosis can help you bypass your rational mind and access your subconscious. Using the power of suggestion, we can start changing your subconscious to align with the conscious. With enough repetition, the subconscious becomes familiar with desired outcome and works in tandem with the conscious to achieve your goals.

Sound Healing is a non-invasive technique based on Ancient Chinese Medicine in which tuning forks are applied to various acupuncture points within the body. Each tuning fork has a specific function based on its particular planetary vibrational frequency. Some help move you forward in the areas where you may feel stuck; others make you feel lighter and able to shift your conscious awareness in everyday life.

Facial Rejuvenation uses thin Acupuncture needles and facial cupping, both of which are highly effective in opening meridians and allowing Qi and blood to flow smoothly resulting in a renewed, fresh and vibrant look. Recommended 5-10 sessions for great results.

It realign tissue in a gentle, noninvasive way in order to reverse the body of the stresses which are the original cause of pain.
