"The science and art of applying massage and related techniques to ensure the health and well-being of the athlete to enhance athletic performance." -Understanding Sports Massage
Sports massage is designed for any individual physically active. It can be beneficial for firefighters, construction workers, weekend warriors, people involved in sports, fitness (professional and amateur), activities leading to overuse problems, etc. The main difference between a sports massage and any other type of massage is that it focuses on the muscle groups needed to perform specific movements or tasks. It is more interactive and active, unlike a classic relaxation massage.
In order to treat injuries, we will first meticulously assess the soft tissues affected, then use techniques and tools to treat your specific condition. Legacy therapeutics will also provide strengthening and stretching techniques at the end of your session for proper recovery and to prevent the injury from happening again.
Our massage therapy services provide relief, decrease pain and inflammation, reduce stress, improve blood circulation, develop coordination, and prevent physical dysfunction. Massage can help for soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons) injuries related to overuse and trauma.
Regular massages can improve health especially after sports injuries, motor vehicle accidents, and stress. Those who undertake the proper training are able to work miracles with the human body.
Experience the difference
Patient satisfaction does not validate the effectiveness of the treatment. Many conditions can have similar symptoms. For instance, lower back pain can be caused by tight hip flexors, hamstrings, or even shoulder extensors. Finding the real cause of your complaint through an assessment help the therapist understand your condition in order to provide efficient treatment.
An assessment is not a diagnosis. It is a process of gathering information to determine the soft tissues that are most likely affected in an injury or dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system. It may include a detailed questionnaire, range of motion, and manual resisted testing. An assessment can also be used to track improvement.
Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of soft body tissues and joints with the intent of relieving/preventing physical dysfunction/pain and developing, maintaining, improving physical function by acting on the muscular, nervous, and circulatory systems.
As a massage therapist, I think that recovery needs to match the level of training or activity of an individual. For that reason, I add to some of my treatments different tools such as Intermittent Pneumatic Compression device, Hypervolt, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization tools (IASTM), Cupping...
In regard to recovery, nothing can replace manual therapy and as far as tools are concerned, they should be used as helpers in order to speed up the recovery/healing process
"A healer is not someone that you go to for healing. A healer is someone that triggers within you, your own ability to heal yourself." Unknown
At the end of every session, I give feedback to my patients based on the observations I made. Treatment by itself is not enough to address the cause of the injury and recover completely. The problem will reoccur unless the affected structures get strengthened so that they can handle a higher level of stress. That is why I educate my clients about strengthening, mobility, and flexibility exercises.
As Dr. Dylan says, the key to a better living and better health are proper alignments, proper soft tissue support, proper neuromuscular connection, and knowing proper techniques.

You probably heard the news that massage therapy services could resume on an appointment only basis without the need for referrals or prescriptions commencing January 18th, 2021.
On hearing this news, I was delighted to finally be able to see you again, but the process of reopening and supporting local businesses can be difficult to negotiate, which is why I have spent the last few weeks figuring out the best process for cleaning, sanitizing, and booking to ensure the safety of my clients.
Clients such as yourselves have helped me build this business, so it's of paramount importance to me to ensure you always feel safe and comfortable. That’s why I wanted to take a minute to tell you what I’m planning as a protocol for appointments going forward. With that being said, if there’s anything you feel I’ve overlooked below, I want to hear from you! Please don't hesitate to reach out and send me an email. Listed below is my current plan for standard procedure:
I will resume practicing on Monday February 22nd, 2021 and will start taking appointments as of today. Currently, I do not have an office/clinic. Due to this I will be operating a mobile service and also be receiving a limited number of clients at my home address (Bankview). My days and hours of operation have been updated on my website to reflect this.
For my mobile service l will come to you with my massage table, PPE, cleaning supplies and all the material needed for the type of treatment you requested.
I will be practicing increased caution with my health and safety protocols.
I will be following the AHS recommended guidelines as well as the “COVID 19 Infection Prevention and Control Manual for Massage Therapists in Alberta” to the letter to always ensure your safety.
As per request, I am now offering equipment rental, the terms and conditions of this new service will be updated on my website.
As I need to allow sufficient travel time between each appointment, my online booking system will be disabled until more normal practices resume. While my online booking system is disabled you are able to make an appointment by contacting me via email or text message.
My previous cancellation policies still apply, which consist of requiring 24 hours' notice to cancel or reschedule. Of course, if you wake up feeling ill on the day of your appointment, these policies don’t apply! Please stay home and take care of yourself!
In the case that government requirements change again, I will have to adapt my work to reflect new regulations or rules as they arise and will notify you of these changes as soon as I am able to. I will do everything I can to make this process as simple and painless as possible for you while also prioritizing your health and safety.
I am excited to resume practicing and can’t wait to help you achieve your health care goals! Until we see each other again (which is so soon!), be well!
A natural approach to better health.
I currently do not have an Office/Clinic. I offer now Mobile Service and I will be receiving a limited number of clients at my home address.
