Why choose massage therapy?
Massage Therapy can help reduce pain, remove lymphatic build up, rid the body of toxins and release tense muscles. Through a variety of techniques and applications, Registered Massage Therapists (RMT) will manipulate soft tissues to release and lengthen them, thereby allowing nutrient rich blood to access surrounding tissues to aid with the desired effect. As part of your on going health care team, RMTs are highly qualified to address all of your soft tissue needs.
Massage therapy is useful for a variety of conditions. A few of these include:
- Adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
- Anxiety and depression
- Back and neck pain
- Chronic and acute pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Inflammation (including bursitis and tendonitis)
- Motor vehicle accident injuries including whiplash
- Neurological impairments
- Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
- Pregnancy- pre and post-natal care
- Sports injury rehabilitation
Massage therapy is covered under most extended health care plans and RMTs are fully insured for your safety.
The profession is regulated by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) and RMTs adhere to strict standards of practice and ethics guidelines. As well, RMTs participate in Quality Assurance Programs to ensure they are providing the highest professional standards and quality care for their clients.
