KNOTS 'N KNEAD MASSAGE THERAPY

Got Knots? You Knead A Great Massage!

 

 

Effective Immediately, I have been mandated by my Regulatory Association, that I am to "CEASE" all Massage Treatments until March 31, 2020. This is not just me, most Massage Therapy Associations in Canada are mandating this. I apologize to those whom I have just canceled on. I wish I was working!

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

HOURS OF OPERATION:

Monday to Friday:9:00 am to 5:00 pm  

 


HOT STONE MASSAGES:

I require 2 hours to safely heat the stones. Even if you have not booked your massage appointment as a Hot Stone massage you may change to this. Some days, it just feels really lovely to have a Hot Stone Massage.


FIRE CUPPING:

Fire cupping can easily be integrated into any massage treatment and does not require any notification prior.


Payment methods: Cash, Cheque, eTransfer, Debit, Visa and M/C

Direct Billing to MOST Insurers (Depends on how your Policy is set up). 

Gift Certificates: I offer gift certificates (that do not expire) for that special someone.


CANCELLATIONS:

When you book an appointment, that time is set aside for you - and ONLY you. I never double book and I try to always be ready for you when you arrive. In return, I ask that you keep your promise and show up for your appointment on time.

Please understand that massage therapists only get paid when they deliver a service... therefore missed appointments are very costly for me and prevent me from catering to other clients. This is a busy clinic and people are often unable to get in without several days notice, if I know in advance that you are unable to keep the appointment, then I am able to fill that space. 

I REQUIRE 24 HOURS NOTICE OF CANCELLATION

I understand that things happen; people become ill, cannot make it or just forget. Additionally, if you are ill and suspect you may be contagious, please reschedule for a different day. In the event of an unforeseen "true" emergency, this policy will be amended.

In the event that you unable to keep your scheduled appointment with me, please contact me by phone at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. If you do not reach me, please leave a message on my voicemail system. If I do not hear from you within this time frame, and you do not keep your appointment, the above policy will be applied.

About Patricia:

I have always been fascinated by how things worked, and how to make them work better. I have always been drawn to fixing people, and animals too. I started fresh out of high school, with dreams of becoming a Physiotherapist. 

Partway into that path, I was in a 7-car accident. I ended up in Neurological Intensive Care, with a Closed Head Injury, very severe whiplash and jaw problems on both sides. My right side was affected, and I began an 18-month journey of extensive physiotherapy (altogether 5 years of physio), re-learning to use my right leg (and right arm & hand to a much lesser degree). I have had constant migraine headaches, since 1991. I required surgery on both sides of my jaw and have worn a TMJ Splint for 25+ years. 

This has left me with a clear understanding of what life is like with chronic pain. I understand Whiplash, TMJ, Migraines, Sciatica and Rotator Cuff Injuries from a first hand basis. I know what it is like to try to find real help, and to want to get answers to the "Why" questions.

Taking my initial desire to be a physiotherapist, to help people live better and healthier, and adding it with my firsthand experiences, has led me to the perfect career... as a Registered Massage Therapist.

 

Patricia's Modalities:

I use a variety of Modalities that are designed to relieve the pain and stress related to day to day living, while aiding in the rehabilitation of physical injuries. I will work to develop the perfect massage for you, with your goal's in mind. 

I provide Advanced Therapeutic (includes stretching and joint mobilization) and Relaxation Massage in a safe, comfortable, and relaxing environment. Just book as "Advanced Therapeutic Massage", leave me a note, with your concerns and questions, or that you prefer to just relax.
Pregnancy Massage is safe, and very effective, from conception to delivery.  Just let me know, at each appointment how many weeks along you are, and if you are, or become High Risk (then, massage is not safe).


I do 2 Types of Hawaiian Massage Modalities:

"Hawaiian Massage" is what you will see when you search Lomi Lomi Massage online. This is a wonderful, flowing and relaxing massage. You are unclothed, and draped. 

"Lomilomi & La'au Lapa'au" are part of my "Native Hawaiian Healing Program", as taught to me by my Kumu Francine Dudoit-Tagupa. Typically, this is done clothed and seated, in a 30 minute session. In the longer sessions, you start clothed and seated, while I treat and adjust your skull, jaw and neck; then, I allow you to undress and lay on my massage table, under a drape. 

You can add Fire Cupping to most massages, without any notice, and no extra charge. Just let me know when you are in the room

ALSO: Sports Massage; Soft Tissue Release (essentially, Active Release Therapy); Hot Stone Massage; Basic Myofascial Release; Myofascial Tree Climber (Advanced)L.A.S.T.; Advanced Face, Jaw & Neck; Advanced Assessment & Treatment Planning
