Vancouver’s Best Kept Secret for Feeling Fabulous
“I haven’t felt this relaxed in months (or years)!” That’s what most people say after their first relaxation massage treatment at Oceana Massage.
With more than a decade of experience, our treatments are customized to suit each person’s unique needs and desires. We might combine swedish massage, light-touch massage, therapeutic deep tissue massage and even some stretching of muscles and joints to address the issues you have come in for. While we can offer light touch massage that is common for relaxation, our goal is always to improve your well-being not just while you are on the table, but after you leave. This means that we might go a bit deeper than typical treatments will (with your permission of course), leaving you feeling not only more relaxed than you ever have, but also rejuvenated (a little like you’ve had a great workout).
Benefits of Regular Relaxation Massage
Over 95% of all illnesses occur because of stress in the body’s autonomic nervous system.
Stanford University Study
A landmark study at Standford University concluded that 95% of all illness is caused by stress. By reducing stress, body therapy treatments greatly assist the body to heal itself and increase overall health and well-being. Oceana Massage has years of experience in a variety of techniques that allows us to provide a customized, holistic treatment that reduces the heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion, and increases endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.

- Improved muscle and joint flexibility

Today I had a very wonderful massage given to me by Susan Polano of Oceana Massage. She was able to both relax my mind and my spirit as well as rejuvenate my body with her effective techniques. It was different from other massages in that it did not feel mechanic or physical although my muscles and joints definitely knew someone was manipulating them. I felt like Susan was taking her cues from reading my body and its energy. Afterwards, I felt like a million bucks! I am happy to refer her to anyone whom I meet.
I have been getting massages from Susan for over 7 years now and I have to say that she is one of the best. She always asks you where feel that you need more attention and listens to the answers. I find her bubbly personality refreshing and a soon as you walk in the door the stresses of the day leave, which only enhances your massage. I highly recommend Susan Polano and Oceana Massage!
The massage I received from Susan was the most relaxing 2 hours I’ve spent in a very long while! I thoroughly recommend Susan’s healing touch….
I’ve been to see Susan of Oceana Massage several times over the past few years. Every visit is a treat!!! Susan is great with relaxation massages as well as deeper tissue sports massage; which can be pretty intense. Every time I leave – I feel totally rejuvenated. Whether you have a sore neck/back from leaning over your desk at work; or your muscles are screaming from the gym or whatever other crazy stuff you do – Susan will fix it. If you haven’t had a massage for a while – treat yourself!
I discovered Susan of Oceana Massage at a time when I needed not only a really good massage but also, spiritual healing. I felt as though I had just done a Yoga class. Afterward, my entire being resonated with calm and balance.
A relaxation massage with Susan is truly that. Relaxing. Susan offers a tranquil, comfortable atmosphere that promotes relaxation and healing. I particularly enjoyed the combination of various massage techniques that were applied. I am looking forward to recommending her to my friends and family.
It is a pleasure for me to use Susan Polano of Oceana Massage. Her massage provides a healing that is deeper, more complete than any I have experienced before. I have tried other massage therapists and none have compared to the care I have experienced from Susan.
The massage is super relaxing and very helpful with my shoulder injury rehab. Always a treat to see her – don’t wait, go and give your body the good healing it needs.
I have been to see Susan at Oceana Massage many times in the past few years. She is truly a great massage therapist and her relaxation massage is wonderful. My job creates quite a bit of stress and some tension in my back. After a massage with Susan I feel re-energized and refreshed. Her new studio is also very beautiful and serene. Now close your eyes right now and imagine you are on her massage table, she is working on your upper back, a tranquil music is playing and you are totally relaxed. Don’t you love it? So pick up the phone and make your appointment! I definitely recommend her.
One of the best massages I’ve had anywhere in the world! Susan at Oceana is a truly gifted massage therapist. She has a charming and effervescent personality, that becomes tranquil and meditative the moment she initiates the massage process… and it’s an amazing process. She always knows precisely the right questions to ask when you walk in the door, how to set the tone for the session, and exactly the type of massage you need that day. She is also uniquely adept at assessing what areas need attention the most, and how best to to do that – and it may be slightly different than you think! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve discovered various tension spots while lying on that table – tension spots that moments later had magically melted away. I tend to be a skeptic when it comes to massage therapists; everyone proclaims that theirs is the best, but Susan is the real deal! I’ve travelled to and lived in many cities around the world, and if I could pick just one to return to for a massage, it would be to Vancouver to see Susan. I’ll say it again, she is truly, truly gifted, and anyone who is lucky enough to get an appointment would be doing themselves, and their body a favour by spending some time with her. Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy!

After my Aromatherapy massage I felt relaxed and refreshed. Today, as we face day-to-day stress and heavy workloads we tend to forget about ourselves.
Real Estate can be a stressful business and Susan’s massages are an amazing solution to de-stressing! I have been a regular client for a long time now and her monthly program is ESSENTIAL to any business person wanting to keep themselves in the game!
Susan not only relieves all your body tension but also provides a peaceful oasis to calm your nerves and ease your mind. There is just something about Susan; she is knowledgeable, genuine, relaxing, reassuring and is always available to give lots of great advice! I would highly recommend treating yourself to a regularly scheduled massage with Susan… believe me it will make a world of difference to your journey and will be something you REALLY look forward to every other week 🙂
Thank you for everything Susan!!
