Registered Massage Therapy

The practice of massage therapy is the assessment of soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of dysfunction, injury, pain and physical disorders of the soft tissues and joints by manual and physical methods to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function to relieve pain and promote health.

Registered Massage Therapists are trained in:

  1. The assessment and diagnosis of soft tissue and joints of the body
  2. The treatment and prevention of injury, pain and physical disorders

Registered Massage TherapyRMTs are dedicated to treating your symptoms of pain and dysfunction, including the underlying causes.

It is widely understood that massage therapy decreases stress and helps control pain. Perhaps less known is the effectiveness of massage therapy in treating deeper structures of the body such as ligaments, bones and joints, fascia, blood vessels, organs and other soft tissues of the body. Massage therapy can provide relief for many common conditions such as:

  • Migraine headaches
  • Whiplash
  • Pregnancy
  • Cancer
  • Low Back Pain
  • Stress Release
  • Tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sports injuries
  • And many other common conditions related to soft tissue and joint dysfunction

Current research suggests that there is a direct link between our physical well-being and our mental or emotional state, which can be positively affected by massage therapy. Research also supports the use of massage therapy as an effective approach in injury management and rehabilitation, as well as part of a preventive care program.
