Frequently Asked Questions…

Is massage for me?

Almost anyone can benefit from massage. This will be best determined in one of three ways. Try a massage for a shorter session and discuss your health history with one of our therapists. They will explain everything they are doing while you are receiving a massage and ensure you feel comfortable. Secondly you could book a 5–10 minute consultation with one of our therapists or clinic director to discuss any questions or concerns. We can usually answer these so that you can make the decision which best suits your needs. Finally, ask us for names of people who have agreed to speak to anyone for a personal reference. Most of our clients would love to discuss the benefits they have received from massage therapy at Embody Wellness Centre.

Who is a qualified massage therapist?

Massage therapists are required to maintain full registration under the Natural Health Practitioners of Canada Association. This organization oversees that the required training and testing has been achieved by all practitioners. There are many educational institutions across Canada that train and graduate registered massage therapists. These institutions have varying degrees of comprehensive programs and specialty training available to their students.

Should massage be painful?

Massage is not painful and does not need to be painful. Pain is a misleading term, as it is so often thought to be a bad or negative thing. Some forms of massage require greater firmness of pressure, and this can create a strong stimulation, but once again, not injurious or painful. Pain is a matter of emotional experience that is unique to every human being. Everyone’s perception of pain is different since so much of our pain experience is uniquely related to our cultural background, level of fitness, age, state of health and history of previous injuries. All of our patients are encouraged to communicate with our therapists, providing the feedback for them to individualize their experience.

How long is a massage therapy session?

Sessions at Beacon Hill Chiropractic and Massage can consist of 30, 45, 60 or 90 minute sessions.

Call today and let our Massage Therapists answer all of your questions.
