Welcome to Megan Elaina WellnessRegistered Massage Therapy to restore your balance and natural health.
Why Massage Therapy?
Thinking about booking a massage therapy appointment but feeling a little unsure if it’s the right treatment for you? I totally get that. Let me ask you this:
- Do you regularly take Advil or Tylenol to cure your headaches & other body pains?
- Do you experience anxiety or high stress levels where you feel it’s never ending?
- Do you have a sports injury or fibromyalgia and aren’t interested in traditional invasive procedures?
Give your body the love and treatment it deserves.
A registered massage therapist such as myself can step in to help relieve muscle tension, repair scar tissue and (bonus!) help you feel more relaxed and refreshed.

Benefits of Massage Therapy:
The head and upper neck are the most common places for holding in muscle tension, which results in headache pain. Instead of taking pain relievers to cure your headache why not try massage therapy as a preventive solution.
After an injury the new tissue that your body generates is often weak and inflexible. Massage therapy will improve your scar tissue quality and relieve your pain quicker so that you can get back to feeling like your lively self.
Your immune system is the first line of defence against invading illnesses and infections. But the immune system is exactly that—a system, not a single entity. To function well, it requires harmony and balance.
Anxiety and depression fluctuate from mild to very severe forms. Massage therapy can reduce cortisol levels (a stress hormone) that helps to decrease stress symptoms like: increased blood pressure, heart rate, and feelings of anxiety. The treatment can also affect neurotransmitters in the brain, increasing serotonin and dopamine levels that can help reduce depression.
Massage therapy encourages weight gain in premature babies and reduces the number of days they have to stay in the hospital. It aids in digestion, improves blood circulation and stimulates brain developed. Your infant will definitely enjoy a little TLC from a massage therapist.
What type of massage is right for you?
Swedish Massage is good for overall relaxation because of it’s long, gentle strokes that sooth the nervous system.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a stronger massage that gets deep into those sore spots to break up the tension and increase blood flow to tight areas.
Aromatherapy Massage uses the addition of one or more scented plant oils called essential oils to address specific needs. It will relax your muscles and awaken your senses.
Also called prenatal massage, pregnancy massage is becoming increasingly popular with expectant mothers. Massage therapists who are certified in pregnancy massage know the proper way to position and support the woman’s body during the massage, and how to modify techniques.
Sports massage is specifically designed for people who are involved in physical activity. But you don’t have to be a professional athlete to have one – it’s also used by people who are active and work out often. The focus isn’t on relaxation but on preventing and treating injury and enhancing athletic performance.
