Understanding Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is a recognized method of soft tissue (muscles, ligaments and fasciae) and joint assessment and treatment. It promotes healing by increasing circulation, realigning the body and improving movement. Massage therapy has also been shown to reduce anxiety and depression.
In traditional massage therapy (Swedish massage), your registered massage therapist (RMT) will use compression, stretching, gentle joint mobilization and soft tissue kneading to help you relax. We also use a number of other massage therapy modalities to help you achieve healing.
