Define your experience

We book on fit. What does this mean? Well, we believe everyone likes something different when it comes to massage therapy. Massage techniques range around the world from styles, to pressure to technical influence. Thai massage techniques are different from Swedish or asian influence techniques. Different modalities serve different purposes. Some RMT’s combine energy work or Reiki into their practice.

When we set out to hire RMT’s for Cedar & Steam we looked for different influences, modalities, training and education to be able to offer to you a diverse team of RMT’s to choose from. We believe finding the right fit is important because each one of us might be looking for something different. From treating an injury, to increasing flexibility, working on muscle recovery to pure relaxation.

We recommend reading the RMT’s bio’s and discovering the right fit for you.  We’ve also designed our pricing to allow for flexibility within your massage to experience different techniques during your duration. Don’t be shy to discuss different styles and ask questions with your RMT. They are there to advise you and guide you along your wellness journey.
