Massage Therapy

At Amani Health, massage therapy is an integral part of our healthcare philosophy. As we recognize that everyone deals with stress and injury in different ways, each massage treatment is designed to address your specific needs. For some, this will centre around optimizing muscle performance or addressing a particular condition. For others, massage involves easing stress or tension, creating a period of relaxation and reflection, or establishing a new relationship with the body. Often, it is a combination of several things at the same time.  No matter what the reason, your treatment will always involve your active engagement in being present in your experience. A mindful approach by both therapist and client guarantees the best results!


Massage therapy has the ability to affect people on a physical level and emotional level. As with everything in life, we cannot compartmentalize the mind and the body. Nor can we separate the effects that pain, discomfort, lack of movement, or specific conditions have on all aspects of life. To that end, a collaborative approach between your massage therapist and the rest of the Amani Health team will ensure a thoughtful and skilled approach is taken throughout your journey of transformation.
