What to expect from us:
Step One: Meet and Greet
Once you arrive at Grismby Massage Therapy Clinic, a therapist will greet you and ask you to fill out a confidential health history Form. Please come 5 – 10 minutes early to ensure you have time to fill out the form. This Form is where you record any medical history, past/present injuries and other physical conditions we should be made aware of. Your Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) will inquire about the reason(s) you are coming for a massage, your current physical condition and any specific areas in which you are experiencing pain or would like addressed during your massage.
Your Treatment Room
Your RMT will then take you to a peaceful, spa-like treatment room where a comfortable massage table fitted with a warming blanket and clean sheets awaits. There is a small shelf and chair for your personal belongings. Your RMT will leave the room to wash their hands and wait outside while you disrobe to your level of comfort. Some clients prefer to completely disrobe, while some will remain partially clothed. It is completely up to you. Once comfortable, you will lie on the massage table, under the top sheet. Your RMT will give you a few minutes for this process and will knock on the door to ask if you are ready before entering your room.
Your comfort and privacy is important to us. Your massage therapist will only uncover the part of the body they are working on, ensuring that your modesty is respected at all times.
You can expect a tranquil and comfortable environment during your massage.
Before beginning the session, your therapist will ask you to alert them if, at any time during the session, a technique or stroke they are using is uncomfortable. Depending on your specific needs or requests, your massage therapist will either perform a customized full-body massage (for general relaxation and stress reduction) or focus on the specific parts of your body that you have requested. Our Massage therapists have a variety of oils and lotions that are hypoallergenic which you can choose from.
To Paradise and Back
Once your massage therapy session is completed, your therapist will leave the room so you can re-dress.
We look forward to seeing you on your next visit, and any questions you may have will gladly be answered. And please, if no one is available to take your call please leave a message and we will get back to you shortly.

What our College Says about what we do and how we do it.
What are Standards of Practice
The College of Massage Therapists of Ontario has developed the Standards of Practice for Massage Therapists. Through the development and use of these Standards the College of Massage Therapists continues to display its commitment to the protection of the public, serving its members, and promoting the highest possible quality of massage therapy practice in a safe and ethical manner.
The Standards of Practice are intended to be generic and have been developed to describe the outcomes of the various tasks the therapist is required to perform within the Scope of Practice. The Standards of Practice describe how well a therapist is expected to perform. How to do each task will be determined by the curriculum developed by the educational programs.
The Standards of Practice form a live and dynamic document that will evolve as changes in practice evolve.
