People tend to assume that therapeutic massage means deep tissue massage, but this is not always the case. Your therapist will apply specific techniques and the right amount of pressure to address your needs… and sometimes that is a lighter touch.
Deep tissue massage is used to break up scar tissue and break down muscle adhesions (bands of rigid tissue) that can disrupt circulation, cause pain, limited range of motion and inflammation.
A light to medium pressure with flowing, rhythmic strokes are used to relax the body and quiet the mind. This type of massage works to improve circulation, decrease tension and stimulate the lymphatic system.
A complementary form of healing which emphasizes the interrelationship between structure and function of the body. Using a subtle, hands on technique called palpation, manual osteopathy aims to restore function in the body by treating the causes of pain and imbalance.
Massage during pregnancy is a wonderful way to relax and unwind, and support mom-to-be as the body shifts and changes with growing baby. Therapeutic massage techniques designed especially for expectant mothers can help you relax, relieve muscles tension, and improve circulation.
A modern twist on ancient cupping techniques. It is a form of myofascial release. With myofascial cupping the cup can be moved while the suction of the skin is active, causing a regional pulling of the skin, muscle and fascia resulting in a reduction in muscle trigger points and fascial adhesions.
Help your body release a number of toxins, including heavy metals like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals. With infrared sauna therapy, you can also lose weight, relax, relieve unwanted pain, increase your circulation, and purify your skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What Is Massage Therapy?
A: Massage Therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage therapy helps alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions. If employed early enough after accidents involving trauma and injury, massage therapy can greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning.
Q: What happens on the first visit?
Q: Will my Massage Therapist keep my information private?
Information that is collected about clients may be collected only with consent, may only be disclosed with consent or to your immediate health providers (circle of care), and must be secured and maintained.
Q: Can anyone receive massage therapy?
Many Massage Therapists treat a variety of diseases and disorders while other Massage Therapists concentrate on certain conditions (fibromyalgia) or groups of people such as athletes, performers, women during pregnancy (including labour and delivery), infants and children. When booking your first consultation, be sure that the Massage Therapist is the right choice for you.
Q: Do I have to remove all my clothing for massage therapy?
Registered Massage Therapists will also describe the treatments to be provided to ensure that you are comfortable with them. Your consent is sought before treatment is provided. If you are uncomfortable, your RMT wants you to let them know immediately, whether that discomfort involves the treatment, draping or any pain you may experience.
Be sure and discuss the most effective means of treatment with your Massage Therapist.
