Massage therapy is a therapeutic treatment that consists of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body that include the muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments, and connective tissue. The massage techniques that our Registered Massage Therapists (RMT) use influence three major body systems: the muscular, nervous and circulatory system. All three systems work together to help regain physical function and help relieve pain and/or stress that the body may be feeling.
Our RMTs are skilled at treating pain, tightness and spasm caused by injuries and/or muscle tension. Some of the techniques that they use can include pressure and compression, kneading and frictioning, and mobilizing the tissues of the body. Massage treatment by our experienced therapists accelerates the healing process by releasing tense and sore muscles, promoting relaxation, and improving circulation of the blood and lymphatic systems. The goal of massage treatment is to relieve stress in your muscles, to enable you to move more freely with less pain. If you are also receiving physiotherapy treatment, your massage therapist will work closely with your physiotherapist to ensure that both professionals are maximizing your progress. Our goal is to help you return to what is important to you as quickly as possible!
