Is a form of bodywork similar to acupuncture, with the aim of stimulating specific points along the energy lines of the body to establish overall health and vitality by balancing your Qi (energy) flow. Unlike acupuncture, this modality uses the therapists hands, stones or other device to apply pressure to specific points rather than needling, producing similar therapeutic results. Blocked energy is released and allowed to flow, restoring balance and harmony.

Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy is a western approach, similar to Shiatsu but with a more physiological approach that focuses on stimulating and releasing “trigger points” in the body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points except they occur in the belly of the muscle tissue rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These ‘knotty’ areas build up over a person’s lifetime due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. The process can be painful but the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
This therapy gently and rhythmically moves the lymph through the body, especially swollen areas of the body relieving pressure and enhancing the functioning of the immune system. As both a preventative and remedial technique, MLD can be used for a side range of purposes including faster recovery from injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort from pregnancy, and strengthened resistance to illness.
Sports Massage is a form designed for highly active people who engage in athletics, hiking or intensive walking. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body’s natural immune function.

Medical Massage / Orthopedic Massage
Medical Massage differs from regular massage and bodywork in that the treatment is specifically directed to resolve conditions diagnosed by a medical doctor. A variety of techniques are used but the work is focused on specific areas of the body related to the person’s diagnosis. This enhances the body’s natural self-healing process and reduces the needed recovery time from injury. This therapy aims to compliment allopathic or standard medical care. It may reduce the need for some medications, avoid new or repeat surgeries, speeds recovery from surgery, accident or illness.
Orthopedic Massage objectives are to restore structural balance in the muscle groups throughout the body, and decompress arthritic or painful joints. Muscle groups shorten, due to prolonged poor posture or repetitive motions, and shortened muscle groups need to be stretched out or they will pull bones onto nerves and blood vessels, and cause or contribute to all sorts of orthopedic conditions.
Hot Stone Therapy
Hot Stone Therapy is a form of bodywork that uses hot stones which create a deep heat which can penetrate the tissue layers profoundly and deeper than a heating pad or hot shower. This induces a deep state of relaxation, releases stress and anxiety and detoxifying the body and balancing the nervous system.
Shiatsu is a Japanese form of massage. The word Shiatsu comes from two Japanese words: “shi” (finger) and “atsu” (pressure). In addition to the direct stimulation of pressure points along the energy pathways of your body, gentle stretching techniques are applied over a wider area of the body to integrate the point work and encourage the flow of Qi (energy) throughout the body. Shiatsu is a meditative healing art that honors the body, mind, heart and spirit. The principals are similar to acupuncture but more pleasant, broader in treatment scope, and without the needles.
Cancellation & Scheduling Policies
4 Aspects Healing & Wellness asks that you respectfully provide a minimum of 24 hours notice of cancellation. Please call or text: (045) 331 691 7567 (cellular).
We charge 50% of the scheduled fee for the first missed session and 100% for all future. Canceling of an appointment in less then 24 hours or failure to attend a scheduled appointment with the intent of redeeming a gift certificate will result in the forfeiting of that certificate.
Please be mindful when scheduling that we set aside the scheduled time just for you, have other clients to consider and have to maintain a smoothly running practice. We ask that you do not schedule an appointment unless you are reasonably certain you will not have to change it. Many people changing scheduled appointments often creates scheduling nightmares and takes up a fair amount of our time. Your therapy should be a high priority – it is to us.
Finally, there are no ‘standing appointments’ or pre-owned time slots unless in fact future dates/times are pre-paid. It is each client’s responsibility to confirm future appointments even when there is a usual weekly time scheduled. Failure to verify future appointments could result in someone else being scheduled in that space.
It is always okay to send someone else in your place if you are unable to attend an appointment. We do appreciate a phone call or text to advise if someone other than you will be taking your appointment
Thank you very much for your consideration and observation of these important policies which insure the health and wellness of our practice!
