Massage and Bodywork
'In order for bodywork to have long-term therapeutic effects, the client must both comprehend what is occurring in their body and understand how to address the issue as part of their daily life'
-Mylene Bergeron, Founder, Deep Flow Bodywork
Momentum's Signature treatment, Deep Flow Restorative Bodywork, is an intuitive, alignment-based approach to Bodywork and Massage. It awakens natural intuition around touch and grows the understanding of the body's integrity in order to promote and balance structural/physical, emotional and spiritual alignment.
Deep Flow sessions interweave Myofascial Release techniques, stretching, Restorative Yoga and Body-Mind Integration principles into a unique full body treatment tailored to the client's individual needs as it progresses. Unlike standard Massage Therapy where generally only one area of the body is worked on, Deep Flow Bodywork addresses the body in its entirety so the client experiences an integrated 'wholistic' treatment. The combination of Bodywork, Alignment and Mindfulness creates a unique, customized treatment for each individual.
Deep Flow Bodywork begins with a body reading to assess postural imbalances and pinpoint tensions that lead to poor alignment and pain. Adjustment of the '4-corners' of the body is followed by joint mobilizations, soft tissue techniques and assisted yoga stretches. Breath-coaching plays a key role in quieting the mind, allowing the nervous system to reach a neutral state for optimal relaxation. Clients will be given feedback and stretches or exercises to bridge the gap between appointments. Practitioner and client work together to reach the intention set for the session.

Deep Flow Bodywork is available as a series of 3-5 Sessions.
Sessions are available for 75 minutes, 90 minutes or 2 Hours
Restorative Bodywork combines Manual Therapy with Restorative Yoga as a means to balance and align the body, mind, breath and soul. The combination of the two therapies helps regulate the client's nervous system and introduces a vast array of new healing and well-being possibilities for the client. This therapy addresses imbalances of both the physical and emotional bodies.
Clients will led through a series of Restorative Yoga postures while the practitioner gently applies myofascial release techniques to assist the client in releasing deep holding patterns in the body that can feed chronic pain or stress related ailments. These postures will prepare the client to be more receptive to soft tissue work, so that a greater depth of healing can be achieved.
Restorative Bodywork is available to clients as one-on-one sessions or can be booked as a 'duet' with a friend.
Sessions run approximately 90 minutes however please set aside two hours for your treatment for integration after the session.

Ayurveda is the science of self-healing. It is an ancient holistic system of medicine that is indigenous to India and has been widely practiced there for over 5000 years. The belief is that when out of balance, the body cannot function to its best potential. Ayurveda seeks to balance the 3 Doshas or Humors, to attain good health. Ayurvedic massage utilizes specific techniques to bring them to balance. Clients will be given a short assessment of their constitution and Dosha-specific techniques, warm oils and aromatherapy will be utilized during the session. Deeply relaxing and balancing.
