Registered Massage Therapy
With the care and expertise you expect from a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) and the excellence of service you expect from a spa, a massage at River Stone Massage and Wellness Centre offers you the best of both worlds. Fleece-lined heated hydraulic tables, dim lights and soft music help you to relax completely. Each massage is customized to your preference and needs. Your RMT is skilled at working with a variety of treatment depths from featherlight relaxation to intense deep tissue and will use a variety of pressures, techniques, and modalities for your benefit. These treatment modalities may include (but are not limited to) Swedish Massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy and reflexology.
Therapeutic Relaxation Massage Therapy
Our classic massage is one that aids in relaxation and stress reduction, eases sore muscles, and works out stored tension in problem areas such as neck or lower back. At your request, therapists will focus on areas of particularly bad pain or tension to assist in relaxation and improvement of your well-being.
30, 45, 60, 75 and 90 Minute Treatment Sessions
Deep Tissue Massage Therapy
Deep tissue massage uses a variety of techniques to reach deep layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). If you have chronic aches and pains and areas of tight muscles such as in the neck, shoulders or back, a deep tissue massage is an excellent choice. Our RMTs can physically break down adhesions and scar tissue that causes pain, inflammation, disruptions in circulation and reductions in range of motion. A deep tissue massage is not just a relaxation massage with deeper pressure. In a deep tissue massage you may expect joint work, stretching, fascial releasing, static compression and deep pressure. At the beginning of the massage, lighter pressure is generally applied to warm up and prep the muscles.

Hot Stone Massage Therapy
A full body massage enhanced by the use of hot stones is the ideal way to achieve deep relaxation as well as therapeutic relief of muscle tightness and adhesions. The heat and pressure from the stones results in deep and lasting relaxation. Not recommended for heat-sensitive guests.
