Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy as a standalone treatment, or as part of an integrated treatment plan including physiotherapy or chiropractic care, can be beneficial for many conditions. Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joints. At our clinic, massage therapy services are performed by Registered Massage Therapists (RMT) who are regulated health care professionals, meaning they are held to high standards of safe and quality care provided in an ethical manner.
Therapeutic massage works by increasing circulation to injured areas. This helps reduce swelling and increases the supply of nutrients required for healing. Also, following an injury like a sprained ankle or whiplash, the body often forms tiny matted clusters of scar tissue called adhesions as it repairs itself. These fibres can actually prevent good healing and make movements painful or “tight.” Therapeutic massage helps reduce scar tissue formation or, in the case of older injuries, makes the tissue more flexible or elastic.
The following is a list of conditions for which massage therapy, when provided by a Registered Massage Therapist, can prove beneficial:
  • Back, leg and neck pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome/Tendonitis/Repetitive strain injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Edema/swelling
  • Headaches
  • Inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and bursitis
  • Kyphosis and Scoliosis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Muscle tension and spasm
  • Post-surgical rehabilitation
  • Pregnancy and labour support
  • Sports injuries
  • Strains and sprains
  • Stress and stress related conditions
  • Stroke
  • Tendinitis
