Acceleration Physiotherapy offers registered massage therapy as part of its commitment to patient care. Our massage therapist has been practicing since 1998 and her experience is evident in her treatment quality.
Shauna Kufeldt, our resident massage therapist at Acceleration Physiotherapy Sherwood Park, has been massaging for well over two decades. She offers:
Deep Tissue Massage
During a deep tissue massage, your therapist will use firm, targeted pressure to reach the deep layers of muscle and connective tissue. While there may be some discomfort in certain areas, it shouldn’t cause you pain.
Athletes often experience discomfort and even injury from the repetitive use of certain muscles during sport. If this sounds familiar, a sports massage can help you release muscle tension, relieve pain, and increase flexibility.
Once you’ve received clearance from a doctor, prenatal massage can help ease some of the aches and pains so common during pregnancy. The therapist will position you on your side as they use gentle pressure to provide relief for low back, hip, and leg pain.
Myofascial Cupping Massage
Originating in Eastern China and Africa, this type of massage uses the suction pressure of small cups to help relieve pain and tension.
Relaxation (Swedish) Massage
If relaxation is Goal #1, then this is what you’re looking for. Swedish massage is generally a full-body massage involving long, flowing strokes with gentle pressure.
Brittney and her team at Acceleration Physiotherapy are professional, courteous and well trained in all aspects of personal physical therapy. My time with Britney was excellent – always cheerful, ready to help, an excellent listener, but most important to me was that she was able to explain what we were doing to fix me, why we were doing it and show how in a simple way to achieve the results I needed. I will definitely come back to Brittney if I need to and would recommend anyone to contact her and Acceleration Therapy to assist them in their recovery.
I guess what I really appreciate about Brittney is that she made me better. I’ve been out x-country skiing 3 times over the past 3 or 4 weeks and enjoy it so much because I am simply pain free. No more wobbling and hobbling and I can fully enjoy this wonderful winter sport. Further, I appreciate Brittney’s professionalism, knowledge and skill as a physiotherapist and I feel valued and treated as an important client. I will gladly recommend Brittney to any of my family or friends if they are looking for a physiotherapist. No hesitation whatsoever.
I cannot recommend James highly enough. His thorough evaluations and precise, tailored treatments made an immediate and lasting impact to my carpal tunnel related issues. To say IMS has been a miracle would not be a far stretch. With his direct and down-to-earth approach, I am educated on my condition and know I am getting the best physiotherapy treatment possible with each visit. Simply put, there is no one better!
James is the best - from my early days playing hockey to now in my mid-40’s I have had many Physiotherapists work with me for various injuries and none have been as comprehensive, knowledgeable and engaged as James. He is really about getting his patients back to real life as soon as possible, having fun, and no unnecessary clinical fluff. I trust him completely for myself, my wife and young daughters who are athletes themselves. We wouldn’t think to go anywhere else.
I highly recommend James Squire as a physiotherapist. He offered me exceptional care by using multiple modalities in my treatments to improve my mobility and strength, relieve my pain, and restore my physical function.
I recently started to see James Squire about a shoulder injury. My shoulder worked, but certain movements caused a great amount of pain. The biggest issue was my sleeping. I would wake up 5-6 times a night in excruciating pain. After 4 weeks with James, there was a huge difference. Within 8-9 weeks, workouts felt great and I could sleep through the night pain-free. It was a long process, but one I was confident that James could help me with. He was polite, professional, knowledgable, and made it easy for me to comprehend my injury. He made sure I had the knowledge and understanding to continue on my own. I would highly recommend James to anyone with an injury!
I came to James after suffering a significant shoulder injury playing football. He was able to accurately identify the cause and severity and prepare a successful treatment plan that allowed me to return to my sport without any symptoms. He is able to combine his medical knowledge with his own sports experience to provide the best service possible for an athlete.
