Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage
These styles of treatment can be either relaxing or stimulating and are performed directly on the skin, using oils or lotions as a lubricant to make the techniques more comfortable. Before treatment begins, clients will be given privacy to undress to their level of comfort and lie under a sheet and blanket upon the table. Through the course of the treatment, only one area of the body will be uncovered and worked on at a time. Most of the time the therapist's hands rarely break contact from the client's skin as the techniques are dynamic and glide over the tissues in a continuous flow. Once the muscles are warmed up and begin to relax the therapist may also employ deeper techniques with sustained holding or pressure to release knots or contracted muscles, within the client's comfort level.

Sheena Shand, RMT
Sheena graduated with honours from the Canadian College of Massage & Hydrotherapy in 2014. Her style can be described as rhythmic & specific, working as deep as the tissues allow all while inducing a serene sense of calm and balance to combat the stresses of everyday life. She likes to tailor each treatment uniquely to meet client goals, and then aim to extend the pain and stress reducing benefits with various home care recommendations.
Anxiety/stress reduction, deep tissue/scar tissue, myo-fascial/ trigger point release, TMJ dysfunction and intra-oral, migraines/ headaches, sinusitis/congestion, prenatal, and whiplash are just some of the many specialty treatments Sheena performs on a regular basis.
Sheena has always had a very keen interest in biology, anatomy, and evolutionary sciences. She loves educating people about their anatomy and coming up with the best modalities and care to best suite each client’s needs. She looks forward to working with you!
Sophia Fischer, RMT
Originally from Nelson, B.C., Sophia moved to Toronto in 2015 to pursue a career in physical therapy. Sophia is a recent graduate of Sutherland-Chan School of Massage Therapy where she learned and worked within diverse specialty clinics, including spinal cord rehabilitation, with high risk pregnancy patients, in a sports clinic, and with individual athletes. This spring, she intends to expand her skills to include acupuncture.
Sophia’s massage treatment style begins with ascertaining each client’s motivation for seeking massage and developing an individualized treatment based on the client’s desired outcomes. Sophia’s fundamental philosophy is that each person’s nervous system is unique and, thus, will respond differently to touch and pressure, that different things will feel good to different people. Accordingly, her relationship with each client is unique, and her treatment approach corresponds to what their body needs at that time. Generally, Sophia likes to work with rhythmic techniques and broad compressions, combined with Swedish massage. She also likes to work with heat and gentle joint movement techniques to facilitate movement in areas that are feeling restricted. Slow progressions are a focus, as they give the nervous system time to adjust and relax.
When working with client’s in pain, Sophia enjoys doing a thorough assessment with the intention of finding the perpetrating factor of the pain. With this approach the client has the opportunity to be involved and empowered, having a clearer understanding of their own body, as well as having a hand in controlling movements that may be perpetuating their pain.
In her spare time, you may find Sophia cooking, doing resistance training or nerding out with some functional movement books.
