In accordance with health regulations and the state of emergency in the province, Muscle Matters and Body Care we will have to remain closed until it is safe to reopen. Currently we are optimistic that will be after the 30 days of the state of emergency have ended on April 19th.

In the words of our Australian colleagues, “As health practitioners, massage therapists have a duty of care in helping to stem the spread of the virus. Taking this responsibility seriously and making tough decisions shows our solidarity and support for front line primary health carers who will have far tougher decisions than us to make in the coming weeks.”

Stay healthy everyone,
Shyla, Karla, Luisa, Savanna and Lindsay

We are a team consisting of a massage therapist, 2 certified body sugarists and a certified esthetcian. We come with years of experience as Lindsay Penner is formerly of Muscle Matters on Brandt Street. Shyla Doerkson is previously of Bare Necessities and Shylas Sugar Shack. Along with the other staff, we are looking forward to bringing you the same professional treatments you have come to enjoy and expect.

What is Body Sugaring?

Body Sugaring is an ancient art of hair removal using a completely natural paste made from lemon, sugar and water. It looks like honey, but is even thicker. The paste is molded onto your skin against the direction of the hair growth, then quickly flicked off – removing the sugar paste, extracting your unwanted hair and collecting dead skin cells.  This ancient hand technique that allows for the hair to be extracted in the direction of its growth means less breakage and discomfort for you! After your service the paste and gloves are discarded and you are left with beautifully smooth skin.
