The Massage Therapist assesses and treats clients in their homes. Massage Therapy is the assessment and treatment of the soft tissues of the body by hands-on manipulation. Its purpose is to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function and relieve pain. Massage therapy is the oldest form of treatment and one that is used in every culture. Today Massage Therapy is the fastest growing complimentary therapy. As consumers become more aware of their health and well being, their focus has begun to shift to include health prevention and maintenance. Along with primary care and rehabilitation, massage therapy now plays an integral part of this combined approach.
Massage therapy provides an alternative health option to help with the soft tissue discomfort associated with every day and occupational stresses, muscular overuse and many chronic pain syndromes. It can also reduce the development of painful muscular patterning such as: constant low back pain or headaches associated with an accident or another type of trauma or associated with poor positioning during the workday.
Massage therapy is offered at our clinic and in the home. The Massage Therapists are registered with the Ontario College of Massage Therapists and are licensed under the Regulated Health Professionals Act. They provide rehabilitation massages for those patients suffering from whiplash (motor vehicle accidents), headaches, tension and migraines, back and neck pain, chronic stress disorders, sports injuries, fibromyalgia, arthritis and discomfort due to pregnancy. Massage Therapy produces decreased body tension and emotional stress, improved range of motion, decreased swelling and inflammation and decreased pain, stiffness, and muscle spasm.
