Deep Tissue Massage
A technique that provides relief for chronic aches and muscle tension that may include the neck and shoulders, upper and lower back and leg muscles. Deep tissue massage releases chronic muscle tension using deep pressure and slow strokes that go into the fascial layers of muscle tissue at the source of an injury.
The practitioner applies moderate pressure to release tension and improve mobility due to injury in the muscles and surrounding tissue. Kneading style strokes stretch and loosen the fibrous bands within the nerves and joints that extends to provide relief to muscles and connective tissues.
Carried out by a trained and certified Wright's Wellness Clinic massage therapist, positional release moves both the muscle and joint simultaneously to achieve a full release of tension and restore pain-free movement. Positional release is an effective technique that restores joint mobility, relieves fascial tension and muscle spasms while addressing a range of soft tissue dysfunctions.
Post-natal massage relieves the overstretched ligaments of the lumbar and lower back areas and can also help normalize hormone levels following childbirth.
Pre-natal massage promotes relaxation and can help to relieve strained neck and back muscles particularly during the second and third trimester when the extra strain on your back is most pronounced. Wright's Wellness Clinic pre-natal massages are given by specially trained therapists who ensure your comfort and safety.
With its roots in acupuncture, reflexology is the application of pressure on precise points of the hands and feet to stimulate healing energy in corresponding parts in the body. Not to be confused with a simple foot massage, reflexology promotes relaxation, improves blood circulation, reduces pain and promotes overall well-being.
Our dedicated team of trained sports massage therapists concentrates on relieving muscle soreness from overuse due to athletic training or competition while increasing range of motion and flexibility.

One of the most popular techniques for physical relaxation and stress relief, our Swedish massage practitioners soothe aching muscles with a therapeutic touch that offers deep relaxation and loosens the top layers of muscle tissue.
Trigger Point Therapy
A massage technique that alleviates pain through isolated pressure and release of specific trigger points on the body. Treatments provide relaxation and significant relief from chronic pain.
With its origins in Ancient China, today’s acupressure techniques are derived from a range of traditional Eastern healing practices in combination with additional natural restorative methods.

Discovered in a 4th century ancient Chinese medicinal handbook, one of the earliest recorded reports on cupping therapy illustrates the practice of using a cup to draw up the skin as a treatment for headaches, dizziness and abdominal pain. Early practitioners used animal horns placed on specific meridian points of the body to provide relief and healing. Today, Wright's Wellness Clinic cupping therapy is administered by certified specialist that involves careful application of cups to the affected area of the body that loosen obstructions, draw toxins and balance the flow of ‘qi’ , - our vital life energy.
Practiced for more than 2000 years in China, Tui Na is a form of massage that applies rhythmic pressure to establish a harmonious flow of energy along the various channels of the body. Used to treat a variety of conditions, Wright's Wellness Clinic therapists are trained and experienced to apply Tui Na massage that is administered using gliding, kneading and tapping strokes to various pressure points. Tui Na is often used to relieve physical symptoms of many conditions including arthritis, sciatica, muscle spasms and other stress related disorders. Suitable for people of all ages, Tui Na provides many benefits for balancing both mental and physical health.
Hot Stone Massage
Heat is an excellent resource when attempting to heal sore and fatigued muscle tissue. That is one of the reasons why saunas and hot tubs are popular ways to relax.
With this relaxing technique heat is transferred to the body using specialized polished stones which are placed at key points on the body. Heat makes the muscles expand and become more pliable, allowing a professional therapist to get deep into the tissue to remove knots and eliminate tension.
