Massage Therapy

Massage therapist, Stephanie Holbrook, greets us in the new location in Victoria, on Oak Bay Ave

We offer massage therapy services. For athletes.

And for everyone else.

Benefits of massage therapy

Getting a massage can provide you with a host of benefits:

  • increases joint mobility and range of motion
  • acute and chronic pain modulation
  • aids in healing processes in acute and chronic injuries
  • decrease in scar tissue and adhesions due to postural faults, surgeries etc.
  • postural awareness
  • decreases general muscle resting tension
  • relaxation/reduces sympathetic firing
  • promotes general functionality

Let us know if you have questions, or want to book an appointment.

Already looking forward to my next appointment!

I had a 60 minute massage with Sarai Goodwin and it was excellent. Sarai is a lovely person and greeted me with a warm and caring smile. She listened to my concerns, and was attentive to my issues. She was gentle but very effective and it is obvious that she is very experienced in her practise. I highly recommend Sarai and I am already looking forward to my next appointment!!!

Both soothing and informative

Stephanie is wonderful! Her personality is both soothing and informative. She fit me in early and I feel 100% better just a few hours later.
