Massage therapy can prove effective relief from persistent or acute discomfort and pain. It is also an excellent way to better understand the aches and pains we all inevitably feel on an irregular basis. Discomfort is a useful indicator of health and well being and need not be ignored. We hope that our clients become more aware of their bodies, gain knowledge of why they experience the issues they do, and continue to work with us to resolve issues as they come up.
Body Balance Massage and Stretch Therapy was opened by Andrew Keith, R.M.T. in 2012. Working as a massage therapist has been his passion since he began practicing in 2006. He is profoundly happy to practice his work in a space that shares his values – working with Moksha Hot Yoga in Saskatoon has been an excellent fit. Hot yoga, in particular, prepares tissues for deep manipulation by introducing heat when at the same time the practice of opening, breathing, and expressing postures limbers the body further. Deep tissue, therapeutic and relaxing, our work is facilitated by yoga. Because our office is located inside Moksha Hot Yoga, it’s easy to couple a yoga class with a massage.

A lot of my clients have achieved a measure of physical precision in the execution of movement yet lack the ability to let go of the tension they can so readily exert. The recruitment of muscle fibers, the tensing of muscle, requires a certain amount of focus and will. I’ve recently, in the last couple […]
