Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints to optimize health.
Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and wellbeing by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved; and physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of Massage Therapy.
Before treatment, your Registered Massage Therapist will propose a personalized treatment plan based on an initial assessment and health history. The evaluation consists of various tests to determine the condition of your muscles and joints.
