Massage Therapy is an effective way to enhance relaxation. It is also a beneficial technique for pain relief and injury recovery. Your registered massage therapist will customize your treatment to maximize results. Massage therapy improves circulation from “hands on” mobilization of your body’s soft tissues (i.e. muscles, skin, connective tissues or fascia, tendons, and fluids such as blood and lymphatics). Massage Therapy helps restore the natural balance of your body by direct movement of the soft tissue and the fluids in your body. One of the most beneficial aspects of massage therapy are the soothing effects of touch on the autonomic nervous system.
All of our Massage Therapists are “registered”. This registration occurs after finishing an intensive training curriculum and successful completion of provincial examinations. Being registered protects you and ensures that all our therapists meet and exceed the standards put forth by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. Extended health care insurance plans require your massage therapist to be registered in order to be covered.
Massage Therapy can help in conjunction with physiotherapy or as a stand alone treatment. Gift certificates for Massage Therapy are also available at the clinic and they make a thoughtful gift for family and friends!
