Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a very viable adjunct therapy to be used in conjunction with medical protocol such as Physiotherapy, in aiding recovery, pain management, and stress reduction. Massage therapy acts directly upon the muscular, nervous, and circulatory systems to rehabilitate physical injuries and improve health.

Massage therapy is often recommended for, but not limited, to the following conditions:

  • Work and Sports injuries
  • Car collisions and Whiplash
  • Headaches
  • Back and neck pain
  • Sprains/strains
  • Arthritis, Tendonitis, and Fibrositis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Neurological conditions
  • Pregnancy


Registered Massage Therapists must complete a minimum 2 year specialized education and training program at an accredited college. The curriculum requires rigorous study and a thorough understanding of related sciences such as pathology, neurology, anatomy, exercise, kinesiology, physiology, and clinical sciences. In Canada, all RMT’s must belong to a professional association (or governing body) that requires a standard of practice and follows a professional Code of Ethics. All RMT’s continue to maintain that standard through continuing education.


Registered Massage Therapists are extensively trained in a wide variety of techniques including:

  • General Swedish Massage
  • Neuromuscular Therapy (Trigger Point Therapy)
  • Connective Tissue Massage (Also known as Fascial Release)
  • Muscle Energy Techniques
  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage (treatment of lymphedema and congestion)
  • Joint Mobilizations
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Rehabilitative Stretches and Exercises



  • Your medical history and needs will be assessed.


  • For greatest results, give feedback to your therapist (pressure too heavy/light, temperature too hot/cold, or any discomforts you may have.)


  • Home care recommendations may be suggested to enhance the benefits of the treatment.
