Stress is not always bad. Stress boosts your heart rate and the cortisol levels in your blood sugar, and diverts energy away from your digestive system and immune responses. This was need by prehistoric humans to fight or flee attackers. And it is still handy when you need jump back to the curb to avoid a negligent driver. But problems arise when stress levels are sustained for long periods of time.

"I have never experienced a Thai massage before. Felt great when it was over and really noticed the benefits within the next couple days. Went by so fast. Great experience! I will be back."
Massage to Relieve Stress
Virtually every symptom listed by the American Psychological Association can benefit from massage. Research has shown that it can lower your heart rate and blood pressure, relax your muscles and increase the production of endorphins, your body's natural "feel good" chemical. Serotonin and dopamine are also released through massage, and the result is a feeling of calm relaxation that makes chronic or habitual as well as acute or short-term stress much easier to overcome.
This deeper level of relaxation improves the individuals' personal outlook, and their emotional status. Deep relaxation has also been shown to promote a deeper, more restorative night's sleep as well, which makes you feel more refreshed upon awakening.
This was the best massage of my life. Grant and Florence are excellent at what they do, very professional, and great people. Couldn't recommend enough.
Grant's massage felt like a holistic relaxation experience rather than a sterile, clinical visit that many massages tend to be. I was surprised by how much tension he was able to locate and find that I didn't even realize was there! I can't recommend it enough. I wouldn't even directly compare Grant's Thai massage to a standard massage, it's an entirely different class of experience.
One of the best things you can do for body! Beautiful studio and energy! Grant is fabulous. Customer always.
The massage technique and Grant’s skill resulted in an incredible experience for me. I have a lot of muscle issues with my legs and the combination of the massage pressure and stretching, helped relieve a lot of pain and improved my range of motion.
What a great experience! Everything from the clean, serene environment to the incredible massage, this place is none other. Grant provided a unique and incredible experience. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a treatment here. You won’t be disappointed!
Professional, knowledgeable and just the right amount of personable. Scent-free environment with a lot of extra touches that make it peaceful. Comfortable clean tops and loose pants are provided. The massage treatment delivers a lot of value for your dollar.
I thoroughly enjoyed my first session of Thai Massage at Sirius Health. Grant was very professional and put me at ease immediately. I expected to be sore the next day but I was pleasantly surprised I wasn't. My body felted stretched out. Great feeling! Highly recommend it!
It was so relaxing - not like a traditional massage where you come in, lay down, and then have to leave. It was a lengthier time, incorporated massage and tandem stretching, had aromatherapy, and was warm and quiet. I felt so good after, and I felt even better the next day. It was amazing. I would highly highly recommend everyone tries this!
Offers wonderful and authentic Thai massages. The space is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The treatment is very unique compared to a typical massage but so effective and bonus points for a foot scrub and tea. This massage was better then any of the Thai massages I had in Thailand. Thanks Grant for bringing this space to saskatoon!
What an amazing experience! Looking forward to coming back already!
