Why Massage Therapy?
Clients’expectations vary when seeking massage treatments. Some clients receive massage for therapeutic reasons, such as for rehabilitation after car accidents. Some other clients receive massage for relaxation or stress management. Many others are receiving massage for both therapeutic and relaxation purposes. It is essential to select the right massage therapist and practice environment for your needs and desires.
Our massage therapists are licensed by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) – the not-for-profit organization established by the provincial government to regulate the conduct of Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) in the province of Ontario through the provisions of the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA).
A Special Note to Travelers in Downtown Toronto: While most of our clients are local Toronto residents and our business is based on repeat clients and referrals, we welcome travelers and out-of-town guests.
Pacific Wellness is conveniently located at the corner of Bay and Bloor, in the heart of Toronto. It is in the popular Bloor-Yorkville district and many of the finest hotels such as the Four Seasons Yorkville, Windsor Arms, and Hazelton Hotel Toronto are all within very short walking distance. While our massage fees are substantially less than most downtown hotel spas, our experienced massage therapists strive to provide the highest level of care in our clean and elegant spa-like atmosphere.
Please note: Massage services are provided by licensed massage therapists (RMT). Tipping is not required.

Every year as the days get closer to Christmas, we have a flood of patients coming in who are looking for last minute massage treatments. Why not schedule massage appointments on a more regular basis? Massage is excellent for relieving stress, tension and other aches and pains you may encounter from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
