Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft tissues (muscle, ligament, tendon etc) with the main purpose of decreasing pain by improving muscle and joint function. A massage therapy treatment will also help improve the body’s overall blood flow and lymphatic circulation which will speed the healing process and improve the function of the immune system.

Massage therapists have the specialized training to assess and treat the majority of soft tissue injuries along with other conditions that may negatively affect your life and well being. Some of the many examples include:

  • strains
  • sprains
  • tendinitis
  • bursitis
  • fibromyalgia
  • headaches
  • conditions affecting central (Multiple sclerosis, Cerebral palsy…) and peripheral (carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatic nerve lesions…) nervous system.

Using specialized techniques, massage therapists have the ability to reduce muscle pain and spasm, decrease scar tissue, decrease swelling and improve the range of motion and function of a joint. When you visit your massage therapist, they will perform an assessment to determine the best treatment plan for your individual needs. All treatments will be explained to you and proceed only with your understanding and consent. This will usually include therapeutic massage, stretching, possible joint mobilizations, possible use of hydrotherapy and an exercise plan to aid in rehabilitation and prevention. Along with all the physical benefits, there are also the psychological benefits that include relaxation and thus stress management which will improve your heart rate and blood pressure. Many private health insurance companies and government group medical insurance provide full or partial coverage under extended health care plans. Some plans require a physician’s referral or other specific criteria. Please check your individual policy to determine your type of coverage.
