Massage Therapy

One of the oldest healing arts...

Massage therapy is part of many physical, mental, and emotional rehabilitation programs. The biochemistry that's in play when your body is massaged results in increased levels of feel-good neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine, while levels of the stress hormone cortisol decrease. Several studies have shown that a massage works well for all age spectrums from infants to end-of-life care. 

What to expect at the RGC when you arrive for your massage...

Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your first appointment to fill out a health history form. Your RMT will discuss treatment details with you as well as your health history. You are encouraged to ask questions or discuss any health concerns at this time. 

Your therapist will then leave the room to give you privacy to undress to whatever level that is comfortable for you. If you prefer to receive treatment over your clothing, that is possible! However, treatment is most beneficial working directly on the skin. At thsi time, you can climb onto the massage therapy table and cover yourself with the sheets and blanket provided. You will be covered by a sheet at all times and only the area being treated will be exposed to the therapist. 

Feel free to discuss any concerns that you may have! Communication is always welcome and is key to successful treatment. 

At the completion of your massage, the therapist will leave the room and you will have privacy to redress. 
At the RGC, you will sign a chit which will be processed by Member Services to directly charge your account for the treatment. You will be provided a receipt which you may submit to your extended health benefit insurance company (if you have benefits for registered massage therapy) for reimbursement. 

Please note that Massage Therapy services are temporarily unavailable due to Redevelopment work taking place in the area. Stay tuned for when services become available again!

Massage Therapists



Carole Eder (Currently Unavailable)

Registered Massage Therapist

Carole has been a massage therapist since 1996 and is a graduate of MacEwan University’s massage program. Since 2000, she has been part of the massage team at the Royal Glenora Club.
Carole’s treatments are both therapeutic and rehabilitative. Her treatments are based on years of practice and experiential knowledge of soft tissue anatomy and its psychosomatic and somatopsychic connections. Her hands-on skills are fluid, perceptive, effective, and calming.
While the focus for the client may be injury prevention or recovery, regular maintenance, or a specific treatment goal, Carole’s role is to help the client with their most important life purpose – taking care of themselves. In learning to be more intimately connected to one’s deeper and multi-layered self, one learns to value oneself more – one breath, one muscle, one emotion at a time.
Carole embraces an eclectic clientele of young athletes in training, overburdened parents, working weekend warriors, and seniors.
A dancer in her youth, from tap to tango, Carole has had a lifelong interest in the body and the art of movement. She is a certified senior teacher with the Yoga Association of Alberta and teaches Iyengar yoga at the Iyengar Yoga Centre Edmonton. Much of Carole’s rehabilitative protocol is based on the Iyengar principles of stability first, then mobility and flexibility.
Carole is also an avid gardener of the Japanese variety. She has cultivated her Japanese home garden with peace and passion for close to 30 years.
She is definitely hands-on in whatever she pursues.

 

Lynne McCarthy (Currently Unavailable) 

Registered Massage Therapist

Lynne is an Ontario graduate from Sutherland Chan in 1994. In 2014, she moved to Alberta to be closer to the mountains, breathe the fresh air, and care for family members. Throughout her massage career of 25 years, the focus has been on accident and injury rehabilitation with an emphasis on performance athletes/artists, acquired brain injury patients, and post-operative care.
Her post graduate studies include cranial sacral work, psychotherapy related to peak performance, and lifestyle adaptations. She has acquired a tool belt of techniques throughout the years and uses the specific techniques that suit the client and their treatment goals. She would describe herself as a deep tissue therapist with astute assessment skills and the sensitivity to adjust to the comfort level of the client. 
From a personal perspective, her life has been abundant with experience, travel, and an appreciation for the beauty of nature and the life lessons gained through sport. Her current interests lie in environmental concerns, the health and welfare of our planet and all its inhabitants including her beloved Labradoodle.  She embodies a deep seated peace within and enjoys an active lifestyle.
