Registered Massage Therapy

to complement your chiropractic treatment

Massage therapy uses touch and pressure to help improve soft tissue, muscle, and joint health

We pride ourselves on an evidence-based and multi-disciplinary approach to health care. That’s why we offer registered massage therapy to complement our chiropractic services.
We offer a full variety

of registered massage therapy techniques to alleviate your discomfort and aid your healing

Swedish Massage

A relaxing treatment designed to increase circulation by manipulating soft tissues

Deep Tissue Massage

A treatment that uses sustained pressure to target inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues, break up scar tissue, and reduce tension

Trigger Point Release

Used to treat a chronic pain disorder called myofascial pain syndrome, this treatment releases tension and tightness surrounding trigger points

Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation

A stretching and contracting technique to help improve your range of motion

Roods Techniques

A rehabilitative technique that uses repeated movements to re-educate the body and brain connection for those who have lost functional movement patterns

How does

Benefits of registered massage therapy include:

Improve muscle and fascial mobility

Promote soft tissue healing

Aid in relaxation

Increase blood flow to muscles

Aid injury prevention

What to expect

during a Registered Massage Therapy treatment

At your first appointment

your massage therapist will begin with an assessment to go over any injuries, areas of concerns, or other treatments you’re currently receiving

We will then put together a treatment plan

based on your needs which will include how often you should get massages and when she (or your chiropractor) will assess your progress

You’ll be asked to undress to your comfort level

but you will be covered by sheets at all times other than the areas being worked on

At the end of your session

your massage therapist may prescribe exercises to promote your mobility and pain relief

Registered massage therapy is covered

by most private insurance companies. We offer direct billing to most third-party insurance companies. We also accept MSP and ICBC.

Ashley CROSS

Certified Athletic Therapist, CAT(C)

Registered Massage Therapist

Bachelor of Athletic and Exercise Therapy, Camosun College

Diploma of Sports Science, Douglas College

I have always taken part in an active lifestyle since childhood.  I was a competitive wrestler growing up competing at an elite international level. I love to discover new ways to challenge my body physically therefore it only seemed natural to pursue a career that involved working with the musculoskeltal system. My passion is the study of movement and anatomy with a focus on functional fitness, ultimately to prevent injury and gain a healthy fit body for life.  This is a fully engaged way of life for me. I also like to pursue continuing education in order to provide the best possible care and guidance for my clients.


I enjoy spending my free time getting outdoors, primarily dirt biking, surfing and fishing.
