Please Note: Julie Torrance is now Julie Walker, Registered Massage Therapist
Unfortunately, at this time I am not taking on any NEW clients as in order to be professionally responsible to be able to have clients book appointments at an appropriate frequency for adequate therapeutic treatments I am at a point I need to limit my availability for new clients. If you would like me to put you on my list for when I am taking on new clients I can certainly do that, just send me an email and I can do that.
Clinic Fees are increasing effective January 1, 2024. Please see the Clinic Fees page for pricing. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.Book An Appointment
I am excited to let you know that the office is OPEN! There are some changes that have been implemented to make sure that everyone is kept as safe as possible. I want to thank you for your continued patience and understanding as things return to our new normal. I wanted to give you a heads up of what you can expect.
Massage Therapy is considered essential when the clients overall health or function would decrease considerably if the treatment was not provided. I remain as always, committed to providing the highest quality of care to my clients.
I am pre-screening everyone entering the office with an online screening sent out with your reminder the day before your appointment. It will prompt you to answer the screening questions and sign your name. On the day of your treatment I will ask you to confirm nothing has changed from the screening you completed the day before as well.
I have added extra time between appointments as I have to disinfect the clinic between each client.
Lastly, I have to stagger our treatments so that only one client is in the common area at a time, so please wait in your cars until the lamp post light is on (the lamppost is in the driveway too so you can see it from your cars).
If you have any questions please feel to email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I would like to thank you all for your understanding during this strange time and I can’t wait to see you all very soon!
Yours in health,

Techniques We Offer
Massage Therapy Techniques offered at the Parry Sound Massage Therapy Clinic cover a wide range of the latest innovations in muscle tissue restoration. Some of these techniques include:
This is a technique applied in a rhythmical and repetitive manner to increase blood flow to the muscles to allow for an increase in the range of motion to remove tightness and stiffness from the muscles in order to decrease pain.
This is a breakthrough method of correcting injury and eliminating pain or discomfort by treating structural imbalances at the molecular level. Every injury leaves an electronic fingerprint or memory in our body at a cellular/molecular level. Certified practitioners precisely detect where the body is holding the most restriction, which is an indicator of previous and current injuries, even if the patient may have forgotten them. Then, using the gentle manual pressure, they are able to unravel deep layers of tension, resulting in lasting relief of tension and pain.
As the word implies, this process involves the use of water in any of its forms (ice, liquid or steam) to aid in the preparation of the tissues before a treatment or after a treatment to decrease stiffness. For example, using heated water the warmth allows the tissue to become flexible and increase circulation throughout the body.
Hot Stone Therapy
This treatment entails utilizing basalt lava stones in the therapists hands to allow the heat of the stones to penetrate into the soft tissues and the joints of the body faster and more effectively to loosen all the structures needing treatment. By increasing circulation with the aid of the heat it allows the therapist to speed the healing process by increasing range of motion as heat loosens the soft tissue.
Prenatal and Postnatal Massage
We provide assistance to relieve the discomfort of the mom-to-be. As the woman’s body changes rapidly during this time massage helps to ease the muscle tension and fatigue. Postnatal (after the baby) treatments are also offered for mom and baby. We educate Mom in correct posture to reduce the potential muscle discomfort while feeding and caring for her baby as well as effective soothing treatments to assist in calming her upset baby through their transition into a new world.
Deep Tissue Massage
A technique focusing on restoring the deeper layers of muscle tissue, this technique involves slower strokes with firm pressure relieving suppressed muscle tension and increasing blood flow to maintain proper tissue health.
