There are many benefits of massage therapy.

Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.

Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved; and physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of Massage Therapy. (The College of Massage Therapists of Ontario)

Massage therapy has shown to decrease or eliminate symptoms associated with the following conditions:

  • Headaches/migraines
  • Muscle tension
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Joint Mobility
  • Back pain/tension
  • Sports injuries
  • Tendinitis
  • Strains and Sprains
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Golfers Elbow/Tennis Elbow
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Frozen Shoulder


Our Deep Tissue Massage treatments are ideal for those seeking a deeper, firmer treatment to release chronic or recurring muscular tension.


Swedish massage is the most common and best-known type of massage. Swedish massage is the foundation for other types of Western massage including sports massage and deep tissue massage and is based on anatomy and physiology. Swedish massage techniques involve manipulation of soft tissues, muscles, ligaments, tendons, connective tissue and joint capsules.

This massage is ideal for relaxing tense muscles, easing stress and tension, relieving pain and improving sleep.

Most people book a 60 minute Swedish massage, but 75 or 90 minutes gives the therapist more time to work the muscle tissue and achieve results.


Pregnancy massage treatments alleviate backache, and reduce leg cramps and swelling that often accompany pregnancy.

Each pregnancy is as unique as each woman. Therefore, each pregnancy massage therapy treatment is tailored to meet the individual needs of the patient. The mom-to-be will be positioned with pillows to ensure maximum comfort during the massage.

All of our massage therapists are trained in prenatal massage and are able to adjust their techniques to meet your specific needs.


As an athlete, there are many benefits to massage therapy treatments with our team. Whether you are suffering from a specific sports-related injury or general bodily wear and tear to training for an upcoming event, or trying to get your body into the best shape possible, you can benefit from our well-skilled RMTs to help you get on the road to healing.


Therapeutic ultrasound is a modality that has been used by health care providers since the 1940s. Ultrasound is applied using an ultrasound probe and gel placed directly on your skin. The ultrasound waves are generated by the vibration of crystals within the head of the ultrasound wand. The sound waves that pass through the skin cause a vibration of the local tissues. This vibration can cause a deep heating locally, although the patient usually doesn’t not feel any heat. In situations where a heating effect is not desirable, such as an injury with acute inflammation, the ultrasound can be pulsed rather than continuously transmitted. Ultrasound is often used for approximately 4 to 10 minutes on each area. Ultrasound is commonly used for tendinitis, non-acute joint swelling, muscle spasm, and even to break down scar tissue.

Ultrasound* may be added to your massage therapy treatment for an extra $10.00/session.

*Please note that only Tanyss Burt and Juliana Fernandes are able to offer Therapeutic Ultrasound at this time.


Reiki* is a subtle form of healing that reduces stress and promotes relaxation.  It is based on the theory of using the body’s natural ‘life force energy’ to promote healing. It is administered by the therapist’s use of gentle touch to activate the body’s natural healing processes.

*Please note that Reiki is available with Elisabeth Mathers only.

A Message from NBMT

Due to a high volume of clients and a shortage of therapists, North Brentwood Massage Therapy Clinic has been forced to prioritize how we book client appointments. Until further notice, we are unable to accept any new clients or clients that have not been under our care for the last 12 months.

We aim to ensure the best possible care for our clients.  To do so we must ensure that clients under current treatment plans have sufficient opportunities to complete their recommended treatments.

We are working hard to seek out new therapists to assist in the high-quality treatment we provide for our clients.  We hope to be able to open our doors to the wider community as soon as possible.

We will be reassessing our circumstances and obligations in early 2021, so please check back with us soon.

Wishing you all safety and good health,

North Brentwood Massage Therapy Clinic
