About Daniel Farkas

Daniel is a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) with almost a decade of experience that shows in the quality and range of treatment styles. He is an empath and gentle by nature.

Daniel is naturally intuitive and curious with each client in each session shows, which shows through his dedication to make a difference.

Daniel tries to keep active in sports and activity, so he can appreciate the need for deeper tissue and targeted treatments. However, he can also understand that gentle, slower massages can calm the sympathetic (stress response) nervous system to reset the nervous system indirectly through the musculoskeletal system.

His style of massage is a blend between the two modalities described above, but he can also adapt to your body and needs as he loves to collaborate with clients.

I have been a client of Dan’s for many years. He is extremely experienced and knows exactly which muscles to massage. I have chronic shoulder pain due to overuse and every time I leave his studio I feel 1,000% better. I will be a lifelong client of Dan’s. I highly recommend him to all my family and friends. His studio is also extremely clean, tastefully decorated and has a very calm yet cool vibe.

Daniel is an incredibly skilled and professional RMT. Of note, his commitment to respiratory infection prevention & control is phenomenal, and has made me feel safe going to an RMT during the ongoing pandemic. Accessibility note: Daniel’s clinic is in a heritage building that has an elevator, and there isn’t an accessible washroom on his floor.

I had my first RMT session with Daniel, felt that his approach and treatment was outstanding. He is extraordinarily knowledgeable, and effectively relieved pressure in my upper shoulders and neck, where others had been unable to. Also provided referrals to physios to assist with other issues. Will definitely be back for further treatment in the future.

If you are worried about feeling sore after a session, we highly recommend not to exercise or go back to work after the session and to apply heat for 15 minutes to the affected area up to twice a day if your condition is chronic. If you have an acute condition, we recommend to apply an cold compressed but the RMT will go over with this after the massage. It is normal to feel sore 1-2 days after a massage, unless it is a general relaxation massage. The body tends to become less and less sore each subsequent visit as the sensitive trigger points in the muscle start to calm down and smooth out with hands-on treatment. We recommend you stick to a schedule of weekly or biweekly massage until your condition has resolved.

No, you don’t have to but it is also normal to talk for the first 5-10 minutes in a massage in order to make sure everything is comfortable and your needs are being met. In order to relax your body, you should rest as if you are planning to go to sleep. The RMT will check in during the massage to make sure you are comfortable or OK. It is best to keep conversations to a minimum so that the RMT can focus on the task at hand. Please note that talk therapy is not in the scope of practice of a RMT.

We use an unscented lotion that absorbs naturally in the skin. Unique to Reset Massage Therapy, we provide a hot towel service for the back to prevent skin breakouts as a lot of clients do unfortunately head back to work or can’t shower right away.
