FAQs

Q?

How long is a session?

A.

CLASSES & TREATMENTS : How does it work?

  • WHERE:Treatments and classes are offered in a calm and private designated space (e.g. wellness room, meeting room, private office). We also invite you to come to any of our clinic locations (see Contact Us tab for map, location and directions)
  • SCHEDULE: Treatments and classes range from 20 minutes to 90 minutes in duration depending on your preference, schedule and budget
  • MASSAGE: Treatments do not require the use of oils or creams and may take place with the receiver fully clothed.
  • YOGA: Shorter classes may not require participants to change clothes. Classes may be offered on floor level mats in an empty conference room or using chairs as "chair-yoga" in a  regularly furnished conference room or office.
  • FITNESS: We can of course train you in your on-site gym, however we also train in open plan conference rooms or in designated outdoor open spaces. No gym equipment is necessary for our classes.
  • STAFF: Our Therapists and instructors are professionally licensed and insured, have years of experience and tailor the session to your needs
  • COMMITMENT: We like to treat the origins of pain and postural distortion, and like everyone to be able to relax and enjoy our treatments and classes comfortably, no matter what they are wearing to work. That is why we prefer to offer our treatments on a massage table, where possible.

Q?

How long and how often should I get treatment?

A.

Your treatment duration will depend on your availability, health and how much you choose to invest in your wellness. Here are some tips and ideas to get you started:

Massage Therapy: Your stress level, the health of your soft tissue and whether or not you have been suffering chronic pain will determine what is included in your therapy. We recommend sessions that last no less than 30-minutes and up to 90-minutes. Two 30-minute sessions or one 60-minute session per week is an ideal start.

Physical Therapy: Your injury, chronic condition, and the health of your tissue will determine what is included in your therapy. We recommend 30-minute or 60 minute sessions. Two 30-minute sessions or one 60-minute session per week is an ideal start.

Yoga/Stretching: To get the most benefit in a workplace environment, group classes have been adjusted to last 45-60 minutes. Individual "stretching at the desk" sessions can be very effective in as little as 25 minutes. 2 classes per week is an ideal start.

Mindfulness: During Mindfulness sessions, we perform different breathing, visualization and relaxation exercises. Allow at least 45 minutes for these classes to be effective. Two classes per week is an ideal start.

NADA Ear Acupuncture: The NADA-style ear acupuncture is performed in a group setting along with visualization and energy breathing techniques. These sessions are designed to last 45 minutes to allow for safe and effective needle placement/removal, visualizations and other meditative exercises. 2 sessions per week is an ideal start.

Personal Training: Depending on your fitness level and your goals, these sessions may range from 30-60 minutes in length. A minimum of one session per week is an ideal start. However, you may choose to boost your motivation and jump-start with 2-3 sessions per week.

Q?

Is the massage received dressed or partially undressed?

A.

Dressing or undressing partially depends on whether you are receiving chair or table massage, and is up to you.

Chair massage: receiving massage in a chair is a "taster" type of treatment and has a very limited impact your long-term wellbeing (the therapist only has access to one part of the body). Clothes remain on the receiver at all times and sometimes for women wearing dresses or skirts it can be uncomfortable.

Table massage: working the dull body on a table, whether dressed, or partially undressed is ideal. The ability to mobilize joints, stretch tissue, and access trigger points and fascial release at the origin of the pain is best achieved on a table. This is most recommended for long-term effectiveness and therapeutic purposes, whether clothes ar left on or partially removed. No lubricants are required when working the body in a therapeutic office-setting, so there is no need to concern yourself with getting clothes dirty, smelling of essential oils, or other factors. However, should you choose to enjoy the use of lotions/oils you may find these facilitate certain nervous system relaxation responses. Rest assured, we can always remove excess with hot towels at the end of a session.

DeNatura Wellness professionals provide pain relief and therapeutic massage to aid in the recovery of injured tissue, trigger points, atrophied muscles, compromised nervous systems and stress.  Stretching and soft tissue manipulation is an art that we practice with utmost care, professionalism and dedication.  Whether you choose to leave your clothes on or remove them, our therapists will drape the body professionally at all times allowing for a safe, effective and enjoyable experience.Nulla dui.
