I offer caring treatments to my clients to help them relax, decrease tension, stiffness and pain. In my practice, I use a variety of methods proven to be effective, such as Swedish massage, as well as deeper muscular and soft tissue work.

Swedish/Relaxation Massage

Elena Khrutski is a registered massage therapist from London, ON, CA, offering Swedish massage.
What is Swedish Massage? Swedish massage is the best-known and most popular type of massage therapy on which all other massage styles are based.

Swedish massage therapy involves mild, moderate or deeper strokes on the back, arms, legs, neck and other body parts to target tissues and muscles for maximal pain relief, stress release and relaxation.

Swedish massage helps promote healing while targeting pain, injuries, stress and stiffness using gliding, kneading, tapping, friction and light shaking—designed to ease back pain and help relaxation.This type of massage is best suited for your first massage session, it allows me to assess your tissues, so that I have a general impression of what tissues are affected, and what techniques are best suited to be used, based on your preference of pressure/depth.


Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff neck, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.

Theraputic massage techniques are more specific and work layer by layer through connective tissue and muscles down to the deepest available layers to change posture and create freedom of movement.

Myofascial Release Therapy

Myofascial release therapy used to release tension stored in the fascia. Fascia is sheets of fibrous tissue that encase and support muscles, separating them into groups and layers. Following trauma, the fascia and muscles may shorten restricting blood flow. The techniques used in myofascial release relax muscle tension and break up fascial adhesions.


Trigger Point Release Therapy

Elena Khrutski is a registered massage therapist from Toronto offering trigger point release therapy.
When an area of the body is tight and tense, it can cause referral pain in another area. That headache? It may actually be referral pain triggered by stiffness in your neck and shoulders.The therapist applies direct momentary pressure to a trigger point to cause its release.

During the massage, the therapist may return several times to a stubborn trigger point to elicit its release.

Pre & Post Natal Care (Pregnancy Massage)

Prenatal massage helps ease tension to help with relaxation and pain relief - while keeping mom and baby safe and comfortable.

Prenatal massage can help alleviate pregnancy back pain and increase blood circulation, which can provide more oxygen and nutrients to the baby. It can help to improve circulation and reduce spasms in tight overworked muscles, improve posture and restful sleep, and help women feel nurtured.
