Massage Therapy

“Massage therapy” is the manipulation of soft tissue for the purpose of maintaining good health and establishing good physical condition. The practice of massage therapy is designed to relieve stress and muscle tension as well as providing a general sense of well-being by restoring metabolic balance.

Our bodies are in constant motion and that is a very good thing…we are made to move and to move relatively pain free.  Musculoskeletal disorders caused by postural problems, repetitive stress, trauma and disease can inhibit normal body movements and set up pain cycles that diminish quality of life. These disorders are one of the primary reasons that people seek medical attention.

Therapeutic Massage Therapy is of great benefit in treating many soft tissue disorders to reduce and eliminate pain and restore the body to optimum health. Therapeutic Massage achieves these successful outcomes through various techniques like Frictions, Myofascial Release, and Swedish Techniques (to name just a few). Resulting physiological changes that promote healing in the body include improved fluid mechanics (blood and lymph), neuromuscular, connective tissue and reflex effects. Registered Massage Therapists (RMT’s) are highly trained health care professionals and know how to match the treatment to the injury/disorder for the best outcomes. We adhere to the principles of Evidence Based Practice as a means to provide sound validation for our methods so that we can provide the best possible care to our patients and further the body of knowledge of Therapeutic Massage.
