One of the great things about massage therapy is that it is a recognized healthcare treatment. As a result, many extended health care plans offer coverage for massage therapy, and some even provide direct billing. However, it's always best to check with your insurance provider before your appointment to see how much is covered and whether you need a doctor's referral for reimbursement.
No, there's no requirement to have a referral from a doctor to see a Registered Massage Therapist. However, some extended health care plans or insurance providers may require a referral for coverage, so it's always a good idea to check your policy.
Massage therapy can provide numerous benefits for your overall well-being, including relief from injury, muscle tension, chronic pain, and stress. It can also help with posture, high blood pressure, and sleep issues. By promoting relaxation and reducing tension, massage therapy is a great way to enhance your mental and physical health.
Yes, we do offer direct billing to most insurance companies. Before your appointment, it's always a good idea to check with your insurance provider to see if they cover massage therapy and whether they require a referral. If your insurance provider denies coverage or only covers a portion of the cost, you are responsible for payment of the fees associated with your massage therapy services at The Soothing Relief Massage Clinic. We direct bill to various companies, including Great West Life, Sunlife, Manulife, Green Shield, Quickcard, Blue Cross, Medavie, Dejardins, and Chamber of Commerce.

Dynamic Pulse Control (DPC) technology is a cutting-edge light-based technology that specifically targets hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. The heat energy from the treatment denatures the melanin in the hair follicle, preventing it from growing new hair.
You can expect results from laser hair removal starting two weeks after your first treatment. You will notice significantly less hair growth, and with each subsequent treatment, the amount of hair regrowth will decrease.
Approximately 20-25% of human hair follicles are in the active growth phase at any given time, and these are the only follicles that can be destroyed in a single session. That's why multiple treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results.
SharpLight's pulsed-light treatments are non-invasive and completely safe. You may feel a slight tingling sensation during the procedure that lasts 1-2 seconds, but it's not painful. The treatments also have no downtime, so you can have them done during your lunch hour or other errands and resume your daily activities immediately afterward.
Skin rejuvenation using DPC technology involves emitting pulses onto the target area of the skin. The medical aesthetician will choose the appropriate energy level, which can range from high to low, based on the specific condition being treated. The pulses penetrate the skin's dermal layer and heat up the tissue, causing the collagen fibers to contract and resulting in immediate skin tightening. It also stimulates the body to produce new collagen, restoring the skin's elasticity and firmness over time.
You will notice a visible difference in the appearance of your skin after just one treatment session. Your skin will feel tighter and smoother. To achieve long-lasting results, it is recommended to undergo several treatments.
No, there are no significant side effects associated with Sharplight's skin rejuvenation treatment. You may experience temporary redness in the treated areas, but this should subside within a few hours.
The typical regimen is five treatment sessions spaced four weeks apart for optimal results. A full facial skin rejuvenation treatment typically takes between 15 to 30 minutes, and you can immediately return to your daily routine after the treatment.
Yes, Sharplight's skin rejuvenation treatment is non-invasive and completely safe. During the procedure, you may experience a slight stinging sensation for a moment of 1-2 seconds, but there is no pain. The treatments have no downtime, so you can even have them done during your lunch hour and continue your daily activities immediately after.
Pigmented Lesions Treatment uses DPC (Dynamic Pulse Control) technology to emit pulses of light into the skin. These pulses have a specific wavelength that is optimally absorbed by the pigmented lesion. This causes the pigmented lesion to break apart and eventually disappear, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. During treatment, the pigmented area may darken and a scab will form. Within 1-2 weeks, the scab will naturally exfoliate and reveal brighter, more even skin.
After the first treatment, you can expect to see a reduction in the appearance of unwanted skin pigment. Multiple treatments may be necessary to fully remove the pigmentation, resulting in a more even skin tone.
Vascular Lesions Treatment uses DPC (Dynamic Pulse Control) technology to emit pulses of light at the vascular lesion. These pulses have a specific wavelength that is optimally absorbed by the hemoglobin chromophores in the lesion. This causes the hemoglobin to heat up and eventually clot, disintegrating the vascular lesion.
SharpLight's facial contouring treatment offers a dual solution for both fat reduction and skin tightening. It harnesses the power of two cutting-edge technologies - VermaDerm and Radio Frequency - to emit energy at specific frequencies that target the fatty pockets beneath the skin. The heat generated from the energy causes the fat deposits to shrink in size, and the body's lymphatic system will naturally absorb and clear away the released fat. At the same time, the heat triggers the collagen fibers in the skin to contract, providing immediate skin tightening and stimulating the production of new collagen for long-lasting results.
The facial contouring treatment is non-invasive and requires no downtime, so you can immediately get back to your normal activities. You can even have the treatment during your lunch hour and return to work with a more defined and contoured face.
You may feel a warming sensation on your skin during the treatment, but it is not painful. Many patients have reported that it feels like a warm massage and is completely comfortable. The treatments are non-invasive and painless, and you can return to your daily routine right after your session.
SharpLight's treatment is a combination of two highly effective technologies - VermaDerm, a proprietary technology based on infrared, and Radio Frequency. Both technologies produce wavelengths that target water in the fat cells, heating them up and causing them to shrink in size. The released fat is then naturally cleared by the body. Additionally, the heat also tightens the skin, resulting in a firmer, youthful appearance after the treatment.
Body contouring treatments typically take between 30-75 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. They are non-invasive, safe, and pain-free with no downtime, meaning you can return to your regular activities immediately after the treatment.
Typically, 8-12 treatment sessions are recommended, spaced 2-4 weeks apart. The average treatment time is half an hour, and results may vary from person to person but a typical body contouring treatment can decrease body measurements by 3-6 centimeters.
The treatment uses Radio Frequency that targets water in the fat cells. These fat cells, which are usually enlarged, cause the dimpling of the skin. The heat from the Radio Frequency treatment reduces the size of the fat cells, leading to smoother skin, and also breaks the extracellular fibers that cause dimpling, restoring the skin to its original form.
SharpLight's Radio Frequency technologies have been clinically proven to reduce cellulite, structurally changing the skin by reducing fat deposits and improving skin laxity, the two factors that cause cellulite.
SharpLight's treatment uses an advanced Er: Yag 2940 Fractional Laser. Unlike traditional lasers that ablate large areas of the skin, the Fractional Laser ablates only a fraction of the skin by creating micro-columns in the skin that are separated by healthy tissue. This quickens the recovery period and allows the body to replace scarred skin with healthy tissue, making the scar significantly less noticeable.
Visible results can be seen after the first treatment, but a minimum of 3 treatment sessions are recommended for clear results. Treatments typically take 20-40 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
SharpLight's laser treatments are non-invasive and safe. The laser energy can be adjusted to different strengths to affect varying depths, allowing practitioners to provide patient-tailored treatment plans.
The advantage of Fractional technology is that it delivers impressive scar-reducing results with significantly less downtime than other lasers. Additionally, patients can experience ongoing tightening during the healing process.
