Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a diverse form of health care which manipulates the soft tissues of the body to maintain the health and function of your musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, myofascial and nervous systems.

A thorough orthopaedic assessment allows your massage therapist to create a tailored treatment plan, incorporating your health goals to treat the underlying causes of your symptoms. When following a treatment plan, massage therapy can provide relief and often recovery from a wide variety of mild and acute conditions. Massage therapy improves muscle tone, increases range of motion, increases lymphatic flow and drainage, as well as reducing overall stress in the body.

Massage therapy techniques are designed to restore, maintain and enhance the function of your soft tissues, while having indirect benefits for your joint, nerve and digestive health.  Your massage therapist may use a variety of techniques, modalities, rehabilitative stretches and strengthening exercises to achieve the goals set out in your treatment plan.

Treatments address specific conditions, while considering the overall body – the big picture, which promotes general well-being and self-awareness.

Each treatment is tailored to your health and well-being needs.
