What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is one of the oldest methods of healing there is. Registered massage therapy is a comprehensive profession and health management strategy involving a range of techniques used to manipulate soft tissues and joints in the body. These techniques usually involve a combination of pressure, compressions, kneading, friction, and mobilization to improve the condition of a patient’s body. Massage therapy works to positively affect the health of your muscles, tendons, skin, fascia, and/or connective tissue within your body.
The primary goal of massage therapy is to rehabilitate and optimize physical function while also working to prevent and relieve any feelings of pain. This practice is clinically orientated and a healthy option that gives patients undeniable results ranging from stress relief to managing chronic pain. Most people resort to our Kitchener, Baden, and Waterloo Massage Therapy for the healing of injuries, illnesses, stress, or general discomfort from muscular overuse. However, our massage therapy can also be used as a preventative measure before any pain or conditions are developed.
