Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the working of both superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques. Massage therapy serves to enhance function, aid in the healing process, and promote relaxation.

While many individuals might provide “massage”, a Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) is often preferred. Registered Massage Therapists are well trained, regulated, and their services are covered by most private insurance plans.  A Registered Massage Therapist has completed a diploma program at a recognized school of massage therapy, which allows them to become a member of one of Canada’s massage therapist associations.

There are numerous benefits to be achieved through regular massage therapy. Whether your need is to have a moment of relaxation, or reduce muscle tension or attain relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well-being as well as your quality of life.
