Our History

Tracy McLaughlin opened Waterdown Massage Therapy in 1999. The clinic and fitness studio are located in an historic house built in the 1860s in the heart of Waterdown – a setting that reflects Tracy’s vision of massage therapy: outstanding service in a calm, comfortable atmosphere with attention to the highest level of professionalism and personal integrity.

For 17 years, Waterdown Massage Therapy has boasted an exceptional team of therapists and a clientele now exceeding 5,000. Our clients are children with growing pains, students who carry heavy backpacks, stressed out working parents, athletes, pregnant women, doctors, dentists, truck drivers, artists, musicians, and retired folks. Anyone and everyone ranging in age from 4 to 84!

Why have we been so successful? Great people with great hands who do great work!

Our Work

Stress reduction is the most obvious benefit of massage therapy. Stress is at the root of many of today’s health problems. Managing stress appropriately may prevent upsetting the body’s delicate balance which can give rise to disease.

Massage therapy is effective in the treatment of several specific problems, including:

  • headache
  • whiplash and related motor vehicle accident injuries
  • tendonitis
  • neck and shoulder pain
  • low back pain
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • sports injuries
  • arthritis
  • pregnancy-related discomforts
  • muscle spasm, strain, sprain
  • fibromyalgia
  • TMJ dysfunction

Treatments are tailored to meet your specific needs and, when appropriate, the therapist will recommend exercises, home-care, and/or complementary therapy in an effort to allow you to actively participate in your own health care. While you are welcome to make an appointment without a doctor’s referral, we often work in conjunction with your family physician, chiropractor, or physiotherapist to optimize your progress toward optimal health.
