About Us

Voted “Best Massage Therapy” for Edmonton’s Top Choice Awards

4 out of the last 5 years!

Wellness The Self Centre EdmontonThe Self Centre Massage & Acupuncture clinic in Edmonton was founded in 2004 by Lara Clement, a Registered Massage Therapist & holistic practitioner.  Lara worked in  a couple spas and massage therapy clinics and while she loved the work she did, she wanted to create something different – a different atmosphere and better calibre of service. The Self Centre Massage & Acupuncture now has 2 locations, Whitemud Crossing (Whitemud/Calgary Trail area) and Northwest Millwoods (97 Street/40th Avenue). Both are  known for providing high quality, reasonably priced services and  a ‘spa fusion’  relaxing environment. Enjoy heated tables, therapeutic heating pads, complimentary hot towel service and Japanese mint oil. Not too “Floofy”  and overpriced like many spas and not overly sterile like some clinics.

We have recently added infrared sauna and spa services to our Whitemud location!

The Self Centre only hires highly trained RMTs who graduate from a 2200 hour or more massage therapy program.  The focus is on wellness,  healing & balance in a calm and soothing environment.  Instead of  just offering massage therapy, they evolved to now also offer acupuncture/acupressure, spa treatments and infrared sauna.

At the Self Centre  in Edmonton, there is a wide range of treatments to help balance and support your BODY, MIND & SPIRIT. Their specialty is massage therapy with registered massage therapists,  acupuncture, spa treatments and infrared sauna.

Therapeutic massage  can improve your quality of life by relieving those tight muscles,  preventing/treating repetitive strain injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome and tendinitis, and speeding up recovery after sporting events and surgeries. A fully registered RMT will help you to figure out the best course of action for your needs.

Relaxation Massage is an excellent way to reduce stress, improve circulation, and increase feelings of overall well-being by stimulating natural endorphin release. Also performed by a fully registered RMT. Some clients like a combination of therapeutic and relaxation massage.

Acupuncture/Acupressure can relieve many ailments, reduce pain and heal the body on many levels. (Acupressure massage can be claimed under acupuncture insurance benefits)

Try any one or a combination of treatments and you will be amazed at how great you can feel after only an hour!
