Massage therapy is the manipulation of the body’s soft tissues. Common massage techniques involve varying levels of force applied with hands, fingers, elbows, etc. Common techniques used by our Massage Therapists are deep tissue massage, cross fibre massage, myofascial/trigger point release, muscle attachment release, stretch massage, and neuromuscular therapy. Typically these techniques are applied to muscles, ligaments, connective tissue, tendons and joints. The purpose of massage is generally for the treatment of body stress or pain. With the goal of increasing circulation and the body’s supply of oxygen, massage may promote the body’s natural healing process. Massage therapy can be applied through clothing or over bare skin using oil or lotion.
Massage is not only great on its own as a wellness strategy — we also recommend it as complementary therapy to your Physiotherapy & Kinesiology treatments.
Our Massage Therapist will discuss your individualized treatment plan with you and explain when you can expect to see results.
