Massage Therapy

Seeking Roots Wellness is not your average massage clinic

"Here at SRW, my goal is to help those who have been suffering with chronic long-term pain for years, find long lasting relief."

Are you:

  • Experiencing chronic stress and pain in your body?
  • Tired of the treatments that don't work?
  • Discouraged by health care professionals that don't listen to you and gloss over your pain, telling you it's all in your head?
  • READY for a comprehensive action plan that gives you long- lasting relief, typical massage or passive therapy can not give you?

I recognize that your pain carries an important message. 

Where other health professionals have already done everything in the book to silence and suppress your pain, I have the unique ability to help you hear, perhaps for the first time, the important message carried in your pain. By learning how to honor this message, you will discover new and unexpected possibilities for your wellness.

My name is Lana Cummings, and I'm so glad we've found each other.

Very early on in my career, it became clear to me that typical massage therapy does not offer the clarity or support that chronic pain patients need. Today, as an RMT, Exercise & BodyMind Coach, I can offer you an amazing massage and exercise treatment plan that will teach you how to pivot out of your pain and stress and and enjoy a pain-free life of comfort and ease.

Initial Massage Therapy Session 75 minutes $135 


Intake Consult - Here we discuss your pain, stress and struggles at length and chat about your goals and objectives with regards to treatment. 

Physical Assessment -  This helps me see how your body moves in function and dysfunction in relation to your pain and stress. 

Massage Therapy - You will receive a massage treatment using my own unique brand of myofascial and mobilizing techniques that help me get deep into the tissues and release stubborn adhesions and restrictions that typical massage techniques do not address. 

Self-Care - After releasing some of the restrictions and tension in your body, you will l receive an aligned homework assignment that will help keep you feeling good until our next session. 

Post Treatment Consult - In the last portion of our time together, we will discuss your next best steps and treatment plan options moving forward.


Basic Treatment plans are created for every client that comes in, whether they want long-term relief from chronic pain or short term relief utilizing single sessions.  

Once your health care goals are determined, recommendations will be given at the end of each session with regards to homecare, frequency of sessions and length of session and they are based on the treatment given that day. 

All sessions include:

  • Assessments/Re-assessments
  • Clinical Massage Therapy (which can include the typical general Swedish massage/relaxation and/or non-Swedish massage techniques)
  • Homecare (stretches, exercises or self-care).
  • Treatment Plan Recommendations (when to reschedule, how long to book, short-term goals)

The exercises are given for for continued care in between sessions. These exercises are designed to sustain you until the next session. It is up to you to complete the homecare as suggested to achieve your long-term health goals. 

The basic treatment plan is recommended for those who wish to achieve short-term goals for their short-term pain. 

Want more support to achieve long-term goals?

If you would prefer more one-on-one support and accountability to achieve your goals quickly & effectively, book a FREE DISCOVERY CALL to request to join a personalized chronic pain relief program. This program offers comprehensive individualized treatment plans that include weekly/biweekly massage sessions, exercise coaching & personalized support, as well as BodyMind coaching and other bonuses, all within a pre-determined container of support. More details are mentioned in the tab below.


Treatment plans for chronic pain are structured as a 12 week container of support, designed to hold space and support you while you actively achieve your health goals. They are designed for those who have had chronic pain for 3 months or longer, have a strong desire to live a pain-free life and are willing to put in the work to get results.

All Chronic Pain treatment plans include: 

  • Clinical Massage Therapy & Assessments
  • Exercise coaching 
  • BodyMind Connection online course 
  • Intermittent check-in communication for support in-between sessions
  • Personalized exercise program & Self-care routines  
  • Digital resources that will help you stay motivated, informed and on track with your home care.

Clinical Massage Therapy

The massage therapy portion of the program, can include any or all of the following techniques & applications: Assessments/Re-Assessments, General Swedish massage used for relaxation; Non-Swedish massage techniques for deeper restrictions, such as fascial work, frictions, trigger point therapy, diaphragmatic breathing, myofascial release & joint mobilizations. 

Exercise Coaching

In each session, you will receive exercises that fall into these 3 stages over the course of the 12 weeks:. 

Stage 1:Mobilization 

This includes massage treatments that focus on mobilizing joint stiffness, reducing superficial muscle & fascia tension and giving passive/ active stretches or isometric exercises. This stage typically takes 2 weeks to complete. 

Stage 2: Stabilization 

This includes massage treatments that reduce intermediate layers of tension and tone and correct imbalances in muscle tone and function. Exercises in this stage would focus on light resistance training using exercise bands or the exercise ball. This stage can last anywhere from 2 - 6 weeks, depending on complexity of pain and commitment of client to do the work.

Stage 3: Functional Re-Training & Strengthening 

This stage releases and deep restrictions in the myofascial system and maintains overall healthy tone in the muscles, fascial function and joint mobilization. Exercise in this stage would increase the strength of the band and focus on returning client to functional activities of daily life using bands, exercise ball, workout equipment or strength training activities, such as boxing. This stage can take between 2- 4 weeks and is a great stepping stone to implementing the client's independent exercise of choice.

BodyMind Coaching

One of the most valuable and unusual aspects of the program is the infusion of the BodyMind Connection Method. This specialized training helps you break old habits and patterns that are keeping you stuck in pain and teaches you how to create new healthy functional patterns, both physically and mentally, that support and sustain you for the long term. This is a program you can do at home on your own timeline, however, we can discuss your BodyMind homework in the scheduled sessions if you need extra support in this area.

Getting Results

These programs require you to do the homework assigned at home on a daily basis in order to get the results you want. Don't worry though, we will review all your exercises in detail, video tape them for reference so you don't forget when you get home and I will personally check in with you throughout the program to make sure everything is going well. You are never alone during this program and will have access to me directly for questions, concerns or changes as they come up in the program.

After the container of support ends, I typically recommend clients only return for "tune ups" every 4-6 months, or as needed. At this point, you should be well equipped to handle new acute issues that come their way by applying the exercises or BodyMind techniques given in each stage of their treatment plan.

This type of treatment plan structure creates an environment for safe, effective, supportive recovery that minimizes the risk of "falling off track", a common issue hindering the success of typical massage treatment plans. It also provides one-on-one care and coaching that is not offered at other massage clinics in Canada.

This uniquely designed program sets a gold standard for treatment for massage therapists in Canada, and can provide long lasting and powerful results.



45 Min. Session  $85 (Includes Tax)

75 Min. Session $135 (Includes Tax)


Program fees are determined during the discovery call, however, they typically start at $1299 + tax. They are typically 12 weeks in length and include 8 treatment sessions, multiple homecare routines & recommendations, 12 week BodyMind Connection online course + all Bonuses mentioned above.

Since the purpose of the program is to help committed clients find long-term results from chronic pain and stress as quickly as possible, there are some guidelines that must be agreed upon for the program to work effectively.

Here is the fine print.

Each session is 75 minutes or more in length and includes the above mentioned outline. Typically the appointments are booked once a week and/or bi-weekly and all sessions must be completed within the agreed upon time frame. Payment in full is required before the start of the program. To keep clients committed to getting better and help them stay on track, we do not allow make-up or rescheduled appointments and we do not offer refunds or returns of any kind. However, we do take the time we need to make sure the program is the right fit for all parties before registration to ensure the best results. We do not guarantee results as there are too many factors to consider outside of our environment of care but rest assured, if the work is put in, the results will be notable.

Payment for programs can be made via e-transfer, cheque, cash or credit card.


Booking Details

Receipts for insurance will be provided. Payments via cash or e-transfer only at this time and can be paid upon arrival. Online booking is available. Please fill out the Massage Therapy Intake & Consent Form when booking to speed up the intake process during your first session. Arrival information will be noted on your confirmation email.

Late Cancellations & No-Shows

I do my very best to be on time and prepared for your appointment. I ask that you do the same. Please respect my time and the time of other clients by being on time for your session and book all appointments when you know you will be available. Please do not book if you are on-call or if you may possibly be called into work or called away. If you are late for your appointment, the treatment will end at the original time allotted. 

All cancellations must be made 18 hours before your appointment time. Any late cancellations or no shows less than 18 hours before your appointment, will be charged a 100% cancellation fee

The cancellation policy also applies to rescheduled appointments. Once an appointment is rescheduled (for any reason), the cancellation policy is then in place for that appointment and 18 hours notice is required. If the appointment was rescheduled within the 18 hour time frame it is then considered confirmed and any last minute cancellation will be subject to the cancellation fee, exceptions being within the first hour after rescheduling.

Otherwise, true emergencies are the exception. If you begin to feel sick the evening before your appointment, please text me as soon as possible at 416-346-7607 to let me know you won't be coming in for your appointment the next day due to sickness. No charges will be applied in this case. Forgetting your appointment or late cancellations due to scheduling conflicts will be charged the 100% cancellation fee. After 3 late cancellations or no-shows, you will be discharged and no longer able to book appointments.

As the practitioner, I alone will determine the charges applied per cancellation and I reserve the right to make changes to the cancellation policy at any time and for any reason. All changes will be posted on this site.

COVID-19 Policy

The clinic space will be cleaned and sanitized according to public health protocols for RMT's prior to each appoinment. Masks are never required for healthy clients or practitioners, but you are welcome to wear one if you chose. If you have any cold or flu symptoms and your appointment is within the first 48 of the onset of symptoms, please reschedule your appointment, as masks may not be worn as an alternative. If you are immunocompromised and need any further precautions, please let me know before the day of your appointment. You are not required to share your vaccine status with me, however, I may ask about it if you are showing signs of vaccine reaction/complications when we discuss your health history. This is only to give you the appropriate treatment or recommendations and will be charted as such. This information will not be shared with anyone unless I have your expressed written consent.

For more information or to chat with me before booking, please book a free Discovery Call.
