Registered massage therapy can offer a wide range of therapeutic benefits to the body and its finely tuned systems functioning within it. It is a safe and natural health care practice used to alleviate discomfort associated with day to day stresses, improve muscle/joint function, provide pain relief, increase circulation and strengthen your immune system. It is widely used in health care practices to promote general health and wellness.
Here at Physio In The Six Inc., we strongly feel massage therapy is an adjunct to providing optimal health benefits towards your rehabilitative goals. For that reason, we specialize in remedial massage.
Remedial vs. Relaxation Massage you may ask?
Remedial massage is practiced by registered massage therapists by performing a comprehensive assessment of the body’s muscle quality, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissues and how it contributes to mobility and dysfunction. The treatment itself may involve deep tissue work for short periods of time, stretching and rehabilitative exercise to gain maximum benefits during your session.
Relaxation massage is a common practice to help de-stress and relax especially after a long week, promote circulation and overall sense of well-being. These techniques often include gentle manipulations over the muscles using strokes, kneading and individualized pressure.
