Massage Therapy

For centuries people depended on massage to improve circulation, ease aches and pains and promote a sense of well being. Physiotherapists also use massage to deliver these benefits and more, to patients who suffer from chronic pain, poor circulation, sprains and strains. Combined with an exercise program, massage therapy can be an important adjunct to any physiotherapy program. Some conditions that benefit from massage therapy are tendonitis, arthritis, asthma, low back pain, migraines and sports injuries to name a few.

Massage therapy is the place where art and science meet to enhance the healing process. As with all other visits, your physiotherapy treatment begins with an evaluation of your health problems, lifestyle and your reason for coming to the clinic. We can then outline the process and how it can help you. Some benefits of massage therapy are:

  • Improved circulation
  • Decreased stress levels through promoting relaxation
  • Decreased muscle tension and pain
  • Improved blood pressure
  • Improved range of motion
  • Reduction of post-injury scar tissue that limits range of motion
  • Improved recovery rate
  • Feeling of well-being as a result of released endorphins
  • Improved sleep pattern
