At Active Healing Massage you will be greeted by professional and educated registered massage therapists in a relaxing and inviting environment. Our goal is to have you leaving in less pain and less stressed, healing body and mind.
Many of my clients ask me what made me want to be a massage therapist? I have always found joy in helping others and have had interests in natural health so I was drawn to massage therapy. My journey first started as working as a lifeguard going to a private massage institute on weekends in Calgary. My career path has taken me through working at a spa, chiropractic clinic and now as the owner and a RMT at Active Healing Massage. I look forward to meeting you and getting you on the path to healing.

Lighter pressure full body massage geared more towards stress relief and those who do not care for the deeper pressure massage. The goal of this massage is to leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
A combination of a medium pressure massage using hot rocks followed by a relaxation or Therapuetic massage. Basalt stones are warmed up and then transfer heat by massaging and being placed on the muscles. This is then followed by a regular massage which can be quite effective as the muscle tissues are already warmed up. Ideal for clients who do not like a really deep pressure as the heat will reach the deeper muscles or clients who are really tight and need the muscles tissues warmed up before a theraputic massage.
A 30 minute massage that focuses on treating the jaw muscles. The therapist will treat the surface muscles on the face and then will also go inside the mouth to treat the deeper muscles. Ideal for clients suffering from jaw pain from clenching, problems opening/closing mouth or chronic headaches. This treatment can be 30 minute on its own or incorporated in a regular 60/90 minute massage. Clients often find this treatment a bit intense.
A deeper pressure massage that focuses more on specific muscles and problem areas of the body. Your therapist will come up with a treatment plan tailored to begin relieving an injury or ailment of the body and may take a few sessions. Clients usually experience some tenderness over the next couple of days.
A deep tissue massage with the use of suction cups to pull and stretch the muscles followed by a therapuetic massage. This technique uses the opposite force of a regular massage and lifts the muscles creating more blood flow to the area and releasing compression. This massage is effective for nerve pain or pain around bony areas that are hard to get to with regular massage such as knees, elbows, spine and hips. Most clients experience red/purple circles for about a week
Massage and the healing of “touch” has been a journey of mine since my young teen years. I’ve always found the touch of massage not only relaxing for my friends and family but also intriguing to watch the body react. As my passion for healing through massage grew, I set out to become fully licensed and educated in this feild! I have now been an RMT just over a year and have found 3 goals I like to achieve with all clients; reduce pain symptoms, improve range of motion in your limbs and assist in the over all wellbeing of your body.
As someone who suffers my own chronic pain, I have personally experienced the benefits and relief massage gives me and I always strive to help clients with their chronic pain.
Whether you seek pain relief or just a simple relax and unwind, I’d love to provide a treatment for it all!
Jess Nelson – RMT
A deep tissue massage geared towards clients who are active and focuses on the specific muscles of the body that are overused and stressed by aggressive repetitive motion. Can be used to prevent injuries during training/exercise, reduce recovery time, promote flexibility and improve endurance.
I am thrilled to have joined Active Healing Massage as it embodies my beliefs in the role that massage therapy plays in “healing body and mind”. Prior to becoming an RMT I had graduated with a BA Psycology degree, which provided me with the basic knowledge of the physiological effects that stress has on the body. Becoming an RMT has tied together my ongoing interest about body and mind and how they function as a whole and together contribute to the healing process. My goal and passion is to help you move forward stress free and pain free with the use of a variety of massage therapy techniques and tools customized to meet each clients specific needs.

MYOFASCAIL RELEASE THERAPY
This massage is a lighter massage that focus’s on the connective tissues (fascia) that covers your muscles. This tissue can become tight and restricted resulting in chronic pain. The therapist will slowly work directly on the skin with no oil to accurately detect these restrictions and apply pressure accordingly to release tension. This technique is effective for pain caused by trauma, surgical procedures, inflammation and re-occurring injuries.
A healthy way to relieve the aches and pains caused by pregnancy. This light-medium pressure massage is good for low back pain, leg cramps, swelling and shoulder/neck tension. This treatment is often done with the use of special cushions to allow the client to lay face down or they can also be treated lying on their side.
Rattan (Bamboo) Massage
A deep tissue massage with the use of warm heated up bamboo sticks. The therapist uses these tools to roll and dig into the muscles. Similar to a Hot Stone Massage but more therapeutic than relax.
