by Carl Parnham RMT First of all, regardless of the objective of a treatment, a massage therapist is trained in using basic techniques such as “effleurage” (long gliding strokes) and “petrassage” –(kneading, circular motions, bending and picking up of the tissues).Basically, the goal of the treatment drives the way effleurage and petrassage are used (speed, force, angle, timing), where they are applied and the amount of time needed for assessment…
by Carl Parnham RMT What a lot of people don’t understand about massage, including some RMTs, is that going deep is usually not indicated on the first treatment. I’m not just talking about avoiding an acute injury showing up with inflammation or bruising. I’m talking “normal” states and the human body’s greatest ability – its ability to adapt to change.

Always have a good experience when i go and see Gord. Very Knowledgeable, he takes you through what he is doing and how this will help. I just came in with a knee injury and left feeling better then i have in weeks. Cant go wrong going and seeing Gord.
I had my first session with Gord recently and he surpassed my expectations. Very kind provider and does all he can to help with whatever problem you come to him with. And what a beautiful set up he has!
Marisha Did a fabulous job ! I was nervous about getting a massage again as the person I saw before put me in alot of pain after. I will definitely be returning she definitely makes you feel comfortable 😺
I could hardly walk with my nearly completely destroyed knees, they were so bad that even my family doctor and physiotherapist after seeing my MRI results were all shocked I wasn’t in a wheelchair, crutches or on pain killers!After 4 sessions with Gord and my massage therapist my knees have improved significantly, to the point I can even do light sprinting and jogging again!
Gordon is a total pro! He is very knowledgeable, and I always leave my appointments pain free. As an athlete, I really appreciate his understanding my unique needs. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for treatment.
