From Performance Care to enhance performance in any sport, to S.A.M.A Therapy or Thai Foot Massage, our team of registered, certified experts will heighten your abilities in any sport, creating a better you and improved quality of life.
TC Performance Care
Performance Care is a combination of biomechanics, Active Release Techniques®, Thai Massage techniques, Myofascial techniques, Soma training exercises and fascial cupping. These modalities are blended together to enhance your performance in your chosen activity. Performance Care identifies unnoticed or hidden restrictions in the motion of the body and removes these restrictions to restore full function to the soft tissues. Performance Care can help improve performance in any sport from skiing, weight lifting and tennis to running, curling, cycling and golf.
Thai Foot Massage
When the soles of the feet do not receive enough stimulation, circulation of the blood in the feet and the legs tends to lessen, eventually leading to many health complications. Thai Foot Massage is a treatment of the lower legs and feet that involves physically stretching and massaging to open Zen (energy) and circulation. It incorporates the use of hands, fingers, thumbs, knuckles, and a rounded wooden stick with lotion or oil.
Registered Massage Therapy
The Thornhill Club’s RMT blends a combination of Eastern and Western treatment methods and various self-healing techniques to help clients with their healing process in a way that most effectively addresses each individual.
Some of the types of massage offered at The Thornhill Club include Deep Tissue and S.A.M.A Therapy which is a powerful blend of Swedish massage, acupressure, myofascial and acupuncture techniques. S.A.M.A is designed to accelerate the body’s natural healing process!
