Areas of Expertise

Deep Tissue Massage Therapy

Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue.

 

Benefits & Uses;

  • Pain Management

  • Scar Tissues Removal & Increased Flexibility

  • Increased Circulation & Sports Recovery

  • Anxiety & Depression

Cupping Therapy

Cupping is a technique where a vacuum is created in a cup, drawing the skin up into the cup decompressing the layers of the epidermis and subcutaneous superficial fascia.  The vacuum “draws” the soft tissue perpendicular to the skin, providing a tensile force, which can be left in one site for a prolonged period or moved along the tissue.

My Approach

"I strive to provide my patients with an educated, researched and yet wholly individual intuitive approach to their massage therapy treatments."

Tiffany Stern, RMT has been a practising Registered Massage Therapist since July 2010, after graduating from the 3 year massage therapy program at Centennial College in Toronto.

Her aspiration to become a massage therapist became more significant after being involved in a major slip and fall accident. She realized then that the traditional health care system did not offer the optimal holistic approach to healing that she needed.

Tiffany has vast experience working at various multidisciplinary clinics, including owning and operating 'Affinity Wellness Centre' in the Greater Toronto Area for many years. She works with clients of all ages and stages and enjoys using her practical skills working with various chronic and acute muscular conditions.

Tiffany has recently moved back to her birth place, Halifax, Nova Scotia. She is excited to reconnect with her Eastern roots and expand her practice to work with her Native land!
