Massage Therapy Patient Stories

Prenatal Massage

I started seeing Stef for prenatal massage at the recommendation of a few coworkers. She was excellent at adapting the massage and the positioning as my pregnancy progressed. I appreciate the check ins at the start of each session. Stef is open to feedback during the massage to adjust to how I am feeling each session. I have continued to see Stef regularly after both of my pregnancies, and I look forward to each session. I leave feeling calm, rejuvenated, and ready to take on another week of working full time as a pediatric therapist, as well as a mom to two very energetic daughters. ~ Bronwyn

Massage for Arthritis

I started at this clinic on a whim last year when I was in a flare with my Arthritis and have stayed because I love the personalized care and attention I receive here.  Stefanie is a fantastic RMT and I appreciate her personalized treatment with my back and neck pain.  She is an empathetic, kind individual and her massages leave me feeling amazing.   My pain is at the lowest it has been in years and I feel like I have a bit of my life back again!  ~ A.W

Professional Athlete

As a professional athlete, I have been treated by many massage therapists and Chris is the best I’ve seen. I have been having regular massage treatment from him for over 3 years and haven’t looked back. He has gone above and beyond to understand my sport and the specific strains it has on my body and has adapted his treatment accordingly. I couldn’t recommend Chris enough! ~ Vicky

20+ years of Massage Therapy

Christopher Curran has been our massage therapist for 20+ years.  Through multiple pregnancies, car accidents, sport injuries, he treats my entire family regularly.  Chris is professional, compassionate and truly enjoys his work.  He is always interested in furthering his knowledge of the body and adding to his already accomplished skill set.   We have not found anyone else that comes close.   He is an amazing therapist.

Painful injuries

I have been receiving massage treatments from Christopher Curran for over ten years. In that time he has relieved my pain and accelerated my healing from two very severe injuries. Without his support my recovery would have taken an extremely long time. In the past I have been to several massage therapists, but without a doubt Chris has consistently proven to be the best. I feel fortunate that I found such a talented and caring health professional. ~ Glenn

Pregnancy Massage

I started massage treatments during my second trimester of pregnancy to help with overall body relaxation and to ease the pains in my hips. I started feeling the results immediately and noticed a difference in how I was able to sleep easier and deal with the changes my body was experiencing with the pregnancy. ~ DG

Best massage I have ever had in Victoria

Getting massage at Elements of Health is like enjoying a warm cup of tea with a good friend, a relaxing hot bath, and the best massage I have ever had in Victoria, all rolled up into one fabulous experience. Pretty amazing really!

Strong, kind, sensitive, and GENUINELY PRESENT and COMPASSIONATE – what an extraordinary combination of qualities. The only reason I would ever hesitate to recommend her to anyone else, is that I fear she will get booked 12 months in advance…..but that doesn’t stop me. I do recommend her to everyone who walks into our yoga studio looking for a great massage therapist. ~ Aase Lium-Hall (owner of Hemma Yoga Studio)

Pre-natal Massage and Acupuncture

I had a horrendous experience with my first child – a 3 day labour andcomplications of an undelivered placenta following the delivery (in England). As a result I waited over 3 years to get pregnant again and was so worried about a repeat that my doctor recommended Elements of Healthfor cervical ripening acupuncture and pregnancy massage therapy for relaxation…

Massage for pregnancy with twins

I started seeing a therapist in my second trimester when I was experiencing a lot of sciatica pain. They were able to take care of that in just a couple of visits and it hasn’t been a problem through the rest of my pregnancy. After dealing with my sciatica, I was able to relax and enjoy whole body massage. I have never felt so good! I especially love the pregnancy pillow – it was a treat to be able to lie on my stomach (comfortably!) – something I hadn’t been able to do since 6 weeks of pregnancy. When I was no longer able to lay face-down, the pillow gave me great support on my side so that I was always comfortable and relaxed during massage. Although I told my husband I was going so frequently for therapeutic reasons, I felt very pampered. ~ RK (happy mom of a beautiful son and daughter)

Pregnancy massage

Visiting Elements of Health Centre for massage therapy throughout my pregnancy became a much-needed and much-appreciated reprieve from the general aches and pains of being pregnant. Through skillful assessment, the therapists was able to target some of my worst problem areas that resulted from carrying around a big baby boy, and also to show me ways to stay on top of my discomforts at home through specific exercises! I found massage therapy both relaxing and rejuvenating throughout my pregnancy and it even helped me get a little more sleep at night as my pregnancy progressed. I would absolutely recommend massage therapy to any expectant mother, and I strongly believe in its benefits to both body and soul! ~ LM (mom of a healthy baby boy)

Frozen shoulder pain

I have found massage to be very helpful for muscle pain and tension associated with frozen shoulder and related back and neck spasm. Massage therapy relieves the tightness and encourages deep relaxation both physically and mentally. It has been a great addition to my treatment plan. ~ MH
