Welcome to Stillpoint Massage Therapy!

Registered Massage Therapy
Massage therapy focuses on the manipulation and realignment of soft tissue. The tissues include muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and joints. Massage therapy is recognized as one of the oldest methods of healing. It is a widely accepted and effective treatment for reducing stress, decreasing muscle pain and stiffness, and for aiding in rehabilitation and postural realignment. Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) in British Columbia have the highest education requirements in North America. Massage therapists use a variety of techniques that, along with prescribed client self care, help to facilitate improved health and well being.
