Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft tissue and joints of the body to alleviate pain, muscle tension, spasm or trigger points while also aiming to improve mobility and promote relaxation. Massage also has a positive effect on the body’s natural healing processes and compliments physiotherapy and injury rehabilitation.
Massage therapy can be used to treat both acute and chronic conditions. Registered massage therapists can work with a variety of patient populations for treatment and prevention of dysfunction, injury, pain and physical disorders. Massage therapy can be beneficial to a wide variety of conditions and is a great addition to your everyday healthcare.
