Massage therapyis a manual therapy involving the manipulation of soft tissue, often through the mechanisms of pressure and applies tension. There are many different types, or modalities, of massage with different outcomes in mind. At Revive Massage Therapy & Wellness, we pride ourselves on tailoring every massage to the preference and needs of the client.
Acupuncture is an ancient therapy by stimulating specific points that can release blockages, decrease inflammation and relieve pain, increase circulation, induce relaxation and rebalance the energies of the body. Acupuncture is effective for many physical ailments such as muscle and joint pain, strains and sprains, migraines and headaches. As well as internal and emotional conditions such as digestive issues, anxiety, insomnia, and depression. Acupuncture needles are very fine, sterile, single-use needles that are placed all over the body depending on signs and symptoms.
Acupuncture/Massage Combo is bringing together the benefits of Acupuncture and Massage Therapy into one appointment seamlessly. Each therapy accesses the body at a different level, Massage works from external to internal; while Acupuncture works from internal to external. Using both treatments together enhances the effectiveness of each; this can help to accelerate the healing process, decrease pain, remove blockages and re-establish balance within the body.
At Revive we have dual licensed Practitioners/Massage Therapists for these treatments. All appointments under this section may be billed entirely under Acupuncture or they can be itemized and billed separately. This will depend on the treatment provided, please consult your practitioner.
Prenatal massage is a specific treatment for pregnant women at all gestational stages. It differs from a traditional massage therapy session only in positioning and depth of pressure in certain areas of the body. Mosaic Therapeutics welcomes pregnant women in any trimester to book in with our skilled and trained practitioners. We will take the time at the start of your appointment to answer any questions you may have regarding prenatal massage, ensure your comfort on the table, and discuss any treatment specifics contraindicated by your pregnancy.
JADE STONE MASSAGE
Jade Stone Massage is a technique that embodies both relaxation and therapeutic massage. By using hot and cold stones, Jade Stone Massage increases circulation, decreases inflammation, and allows for deeper relaxation of muscles. Unlike some hot stone therapies, the jade stones are not only placed on the skin, but also used as massage tools to manipulate and release tension.
Myofascial/Fire Cupping involves gliding negatively pressurised cups over the body to lift and separate soft tissue, decreasing tension and increasing blood flow to the treated area. Unlike the compression employed to loosen muscle fibers in traditional massage, Cupping allows for passive stretch of tight tissues through the gentle suction and movement of the cups.
All appointments booked under this section can be billed either as Acupuncture or Massage Therapy, depending upon Practitioner licensing.

When you inhale essential oil, messages are transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion, and the immune system. This also takes place through skin absorption.
Note: This treatment is unfortunately not available for women who are pregnant. Many commonly used therapeutic oils are contraindicated during pregnancy. This treatment is also not recommended for patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments.
RAPID NEUROFASCIAL RESET (N.F.R)
Rapid NeuroFascial Reset (N.F.R) is a therapeutic technique that targets the central nervous system and stimulates a 'RAPID' reprogramming of the tissue which helps tight muscles relax, restore range of motion, and eliminate pain. Conditions that can be treated by RAPID include: headaches, whiplash, muscle and joint pain. The added benefit of this technique is treatment length does not have to be long. Results can be felt quickly because the nervous system is stimulated with these techniques and is very responsive, when prompted to act.
Chakra loosely translates to spinning wheel in Sanskrit. They are energy centres that run from the base of your spine, up to the top of your head. There are seven main chakras, and when one is out of balance, it affects all the others. During a balancing session, the practitioner will assess the flow of energy, and remove blockages, or infuse them with energy. Your session will begin with a brief consultation, and then the session itself will include the use of some essential oils, crystals, and a pendulum. You will then have time after your session to go over the findings, and be given some specific home care.
