Hello, welcome to my site, my name is Carlos Ivazeta, Peruvian born and living in Canada since 2004.
My academic background is in Business (Lima) and a Master in Marketing (Madrid).
My interest in massage came from my youth, I've always been interested in the art of touching and healing, so I took a course of Shiatsu before arriving to Toronto, where I lived for 5 years, always refining my technique.
Once I moved to Montreal, I decided to pursue a Certification in Swedish massage at Ikra School (2016), table Thai massage at Lotus Palm Institute (2019), complementing my treatment with hot stones.
During my trips, I tried to learn from different therapies I received and keeping the best of these experiences to build my own style.
I had the chance to give and receive massages from Latin America (Lima, Buenos Aires, Havana, San Juan) to the Middle East (Istanbul, Beirut, Djerba, Sousse, Casablanca), from Europe (Paris, Cannes, Porto, Mallorca, Berlin, Madrid, Valencia, Canary Islands, Milan, London) to the US (New York, New Jersey, Washington DC, Provincetown, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego, New Orleans) and Canada (Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal, where I reside).
I work on my own, in my condo, centrally located in a private and quiet street and decorated using stress-free elements. Always fresh and clean.
The atmosphere of the studio is designed for a massage session:
Comfortable room temperature
Stone heater to keep them at the right temperature
Bolsters for the neck, shoulders, feet and knee
My routine is a blend of Shiatsu and Swedish techniques,
complemented with a Hot Stones therapy (at no extra cost).
If the massage is too light or too firm, let me know so I can adjust accordingly.
I am totally adaptable to my client.
The first session starts with a 10 minutes questionnaire health status form,
to understand your needs then the regular sessions take the entire 60 minutes,
or the time you prefer, 90 minutes or 2 hours.
Cash, e-transfer and all credit cards are accepted
(MasterCard, Visa, etc) except American Express.
I offer insurance receipt.
This type of massage consists of strokes designed to warm the muscle, release tension and break up knots. The manoeuvers are known as: effleurage (sliding/gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), frictions (cross fiber work most recognized by use of thumbs) and vibrations/shaking.
Most common benefits are:
Reduces back and joint pain
Relaxes the mind, reduces the stress, elevates the mood
Improves the circulation of the blood and lymphatic fluids as well as eliminates toxins
Flushes out metabolic waste
Promotes regular sleep cycles, better congestion and digestion
Enhances immune system response
Accelerates muscle tissue repair
Helps the body recover its natural equilibrium, homeostasis.
