Massage Therapy

What is massage?

Massaging the soft tissues of the body, such as the muscles may be helpful in reducing tension and pain, improving blood flow, and encouraging relaxation. Massage therapists usually apply pressure with their hands, but they can also use their forearms, elbows, or feet. There are many different types of massage. Some are gentle, and some are very active and intense.

Patients use massage to promote relaxation and relieve pain. It can also relieve muscle tension and may improve blood flow, relieve pressure on nerves, and restore normal joint movement.

Is massage safe?

When done properly, massage is definitely very safe. Choosing a Registered Massage Therapist who has received provincial certification ensures a certain level of training and conformance with certain practice guidelines. Keep in mind that massage requires a time commitment and may be expensive. The cost of massage therapy is generally not covered by provincial health plans - but is often covered by private health insurance.
