Massage Therapy & Physio

A Registered Massage Therapist can be a beneficial addition to your complementary healthcare team. Massage Therapy can prepare tissues to respond better to your physiotherapy treatment by increasing circulation to damaged tissues and improving the capacity for muscle tissue to heal. Musculoskeletal pain is often caused by neurological patterning resulting in chronically contracted muscles, inflammation, and adhesions.Your Physiotherapist will help your body to learn new patterns and your Massage Therapist will help soothe the nervous system, relax the muscles, and set you up for success as you begin your journey towards pain-free movement.

Massage Therapy can further enhance the beneficial effects of physiotherapy by helping patients to relax mentally. We understand that physical limitations in your life can cause stress and anxiety. Decreasing the stress-related chemicals, and increasing mood-elevating chemicals, can help you feel more positive about your ability to heal, and therefore respond more completely to the rehabilitation process.

Registered Massage Therapists are particularly skilled at working with chronic pain and acute conditions. We know that each client is unique and therefore their journey to healing is unique. If you are currently in treatment with a physiotherapist, we will consult with your physiotherapist to ensure consistency and continuity of care.

Completed rehab and now on to strength training? Massage therapy can help speed recovery after a workout, by improving blood circulation (helping to distribute nutrients and oxygen to the tissue) and improving lymphatic circulation (helping to reduce debris and toxins in the blood). It also helps improve muscle tone and joint mobility, making you more productive in your next workout.
