Massage Therapy: Massage Therapy is a government regulated health care profession. Massage therapists have a 3 year diploma from a recognized massage therapy school, and must pass provincial examinations. Massage Therapists are experts in helping you with problems occurring in the soft tissues of your body. After assessing your condition, a therapist treats and prevents physical dysfunction and pain in the muscle and connective tissue through massage therapies that develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function or relieve pain.
At Active Healthcare Centre our massage therapists strive to offer quality massage therapy and are constantly updating their skills and knowledge. Our massage therapists have taken multiple continuing education courses and specialize in pregnancy massage, deep tissue sports massage, treatment for motor vehicle accident injuries, repetitive strain injuries and stress management.

For 10 years I suffered from pain in my neck due to tension. I wasn’t able to turn my head very well . James applied acupuncture and an alignment and it Was 90% better in one treatment. I was in shocked that I had suffered so long with it and it went away so easily. Thank you so much for that James. Also the massage therapist are amazing! thanks to Fiona and Brianna thank You ladies. The only downfall is that it takes two months to get in.
I came in with chronic (pinched) nerve pain in my R hip down to my knee.... I had put up with dull to managable pain for over a year. Then things got worse.. And worse... And it became so painful I couldn't sleep well. Standing and sitting either way was a chore....I saw James...And now I can say, my leg is 80% better and I had best sleep last night in a long while... thank you! Sincerely, BM
I started seeing Elizabeth for pain in my feet ( planters fasciitis ). I thought I would have to live with this pain forever. She proved me wrong. She is very caring and professional and works hard at making me better !! Highly recommend if u are in any kind of discomfort or pain. Don’t live with that .
After leaving another therapeutic centre I found Dr Brittany at Active health care. I cannot say enough for her thorough and continued therapeutic care. After years of physiotherapy elsewhere I have never felt better in such a short time going to see Dr Brittany. Her services have been nothing short of respectful, understanding, knowledgeable and experienced. I totally give thumbs up for her most outstanding professional manner. Thank you Dr Brittany.
Ttreated my nerve pain from my neck with acupuncture relieved me of a lot of discomfort nice friendly staff and service! Like!
James and Elizabeth are amazing!! Acupuncture, massage and a good cracking are putting me back on track.
I walked out straight and free of pain. I also had laser and I am riddled with osteoarthritis he is amazing. I moved here in September and so pleased to be with Active and in great care. I know my husband Allan Punter feels the same way.
