Massage Therapy

The practice of massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body to gain a therapeutic response. Massage therapy is the most frequently used therapy for muscoskeletal problems, and is especially useful in controlling pain. Massage Therapy has been used for thousands of years for relaxation and to restore and promote the good health of both mind and body. Massage reduces stress, relieves physical tension, improves mental response and productivity, aids in the prevention of repetitive stress syndrome (RSS), increases cardiovascular efficiency, enhances the immune system and reduces injury recovery time.

 

Over the past decade, there has been a significant rise in the demand for massage therapy in Ontario. This can be attributed to higher educational standards, research studies showing the efficacy of massage therapy, and an overall increase in public demand for non-surgical and drug-free treatment options. Massage therapy is also remarkably effective when used as part of a preventive care program. 95 per cent of massage therapy patients surveyed said it improved their conditions. Nearly 90 per cent of back patients who receive treatments say they feel dramatically better following treatments.

 

Massage Therapy acts directly upon the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems to rehabilitate physical injuries and improve health. Research studies have found massage therapy to positively affect:

  • circulation
  • muscular system
  • nervous system
  • immune system
  • pain perception
  • psychological state
  • respiratory function
