Massage Therapy can be a powerful ally in your health care regimen
Massage therapy is a regulated health profession in Ontario. It is a clinically proven treatment that relieves pain and discomfort stemming from stress, muscular overuse, injury and chronic pain syndromes.
Massage therapy is a comprehensive intervention involving a range of techniques to manipulate the soft tissues and joints of the body. The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, develop, maintain, rehabilitate and augment physical function or relieve pain.
Clinically proven benefits of massage therapy:
- Increases blood and lymphatic fluid circulation
- Decreases pain and relieves tension
- Increases the effectiveness of the immune system
- Reduces swelling (edema)
- Faster healing
- Lowered heart rate and blood pressure
- Reduction of emotional stress
A Registered Massage Therapist physically stretches muscles, reduces muscles spasm and increases range of motion. In the case of injury, this results in not only pain relief, but also faster healing and long term strengthening.
