MASSAGE THERAPY

Did you know that the majority of diseases may be related to stress? Our rejuvenating and therapeutic massage helps reduce stress to help prevent injury, encourage healing, and promote physical and mental wellness.

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage therapy is a clinically-oriented health care option that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions

What to Expect When You Visit a Massage Therapist?

On the first visit you will complete a confidential health history as part of your assessment. The Registered Massage Therapist will assess you individual needs as well as other factors that may be contributing to your injury or condition. The Registered Massage Therapist will then develop a treatment plan with you to ensure you receive appropriate treatment. The treatment plan can be changed at any time you wish and will be reassessed at an appropriate time. You have no obligation to undergo any part of a treatment.

Your treatment will begin once you have given your informed consent. This involves setting realistic goals for treatment, discussing possible responses to treatment, and being informed of alternative care options. As a health professional, your massage therapist needs to know your complete health history, including details regarding any medications you may be taking at the time of your visit, as well as other health professionals from whom you are seeking treatment. There are many situations where massage therapy treatments need to be modified or not provided depending on the circumstances of your condition or the medications you may be taking. Don’t hold any information back. As a health professional, your massage therapist is obligated to keep your health history strictly confidential and secure.
