The instant you walk into the massage therapy clinic in Wolfville and meet Mia Lockhart, you will know you have come to the right place.All your worries and troubles are left at the door, as you step in and are greeted by soothing music, calming colours and decor, and friendly therapists. I have been to Mia several times and have always felt so much better after leaving. In the past, I have had a Whole Balance treatment with Mia. This time, Mia suggested I come visit her newly opened clinic in Wolfville. This time, it would be a Massage Therapy treatment, with additions of myofascial work, reflexology and cranial sacral therapy included. This, she said, would show how she approaches each unique body, integrating everything she has learned in her treatments. Here's what else Mia says about her treatments:
In my 15 years of practice, I’ve been known to rock at intuitively releasing muscle tension in a way that renders my clients into blissful relaxation and long term healing. From sciatica, low back pain, headaches, shoulder injuries, fibromyalgia, TMJ, gout, knee injuries, whiplash, chronic fatigue, depression, hormone balancing, chronic pain, general shoulder pain, prenatal & postnatal and much more - I am there to help you regain your health, mobility and ultimately the happiness you deserve.Mia mentioned that many of her clients are now teenagers. They put so much wear and tear on our bodies through sport, or become so stressed with school, that it is good to teach them to take care of themselves from an early age. Mia started the session by explaining the procedure, asking me about any health concerns or what I would like out of the treatment, specifically.

Mia immediately instills a sense of calmness in you, that is perfect for someone like me who is always wound up, and has trouble calming the mind.I told her I just wanted everything that she did! Throughout the hour-long session, Mia started working on my back, which was heavenly for someone who sits hunched at a computer most of the time! Reflexology is always one of my favourite parts, and every time I have it done, I find different parts of my body that need working. Sometimes it's my spine, but today, it was my solar plexus and chest muscles - again, probably from hunching at a computer, and needing to take the time to JUST BREATHE.
She ended by working on my head, and causing an overwhelming sense of calm to come over me that lasted the whole day.I cannot wait to go back for another treatment, and have already told several people to head there, soon! You will not regret it!
I love Mia's philosophy of taking care of the whole body, and taking time for yourself.Mia is a person who radiates goodness, and you can't help but immediate feel calm in her presence. Plus, she has started an incredible program in the Valley for teenaged girls called Girls on Boards.
"On a mission to empower girls to love their bodies, trust their core and lead the way. Sponsored body positive SUP trips for teens. Girls On Boards is here to empower tomorrow's female leaders by building their confidence today. We sponsor paddle boarding trips for teen girls to help them relearn how to trust themselves, love their bodies and paddle their own journey."Oh, and she's a great yoga teacher, too!
