    Massage treatments offered at Elysian 

    Massage treatments at Elysian can address a wide range of health issues and enhance your health, well-being and athletic performance. Take a look and see what might suit you, or give us a call and we can suggest options based on your symptoms, goals and needs.

    A sport massage is designed to improve your athletic performance and treat and prevent injuries. It may focus on particular muscle groups, trouble areas and trigger points, depending on you and the nature of your activity. It can help increase blood flow, increase your range of motion, and address areas that you may be prone to injure. Your therapist may also use other techniques such as compression, pressure point therapy, and joint mobilization to aid in your performance.

    Frequently asked questions

    Before your first visit, we ask that you arrive 15–20 minutes prior to your appointment to complete a confidential medical history form. You will then meet your massage therapist and the two of you will discuss your reason for seeking massage treatment, your goals, and any other other concerns you may have. Your therapist will proceed with your massage, and once completed, they’ll recommend a treatment plan, including the frequency of visits.

    Relaxation massage vs deep tissue massage

    With many different massage treatments available, you may not know which type is right for you. If you’re looking for relaxation and relief from tense, tight muscles, a relaxation massage is probably right for you. If you have chronic pain or an injury, then a deep tissue massage might be the route to go.

    8 reasons why you need massage therapy

    Is your busy schedule taking a toll on your body? Whether you’re looking for ways to treat a specific health condition, or simply to find some much-needed stress relief, massage might be the missing piece you need. Regular massage therapy has grown to be a staple in many healthcare regimens.

    What you need to know before getting a sports massage

    If you’re a competitor you know how it feels to push your body to the limit. Chances are you’ve also experienced an injury or two. A sports massage performed by one of Elysian’s registered massage therapists is a highly effective tool to treat those aches, pains and strains that keep you from performing at your best.

    How massage therapy helps with posture and alignment

    It may seem like an old-fashioned concept, but poor posture is the cause of so much avoidable pain and stiffness. It can even be highly damaging to our overall health. Massage therapy can help alleviate pain due to poor posture and improve mobility so you can stand up straighter and move more comfortably.
