Massage therapy is an increasingly popular health care option across Canada. It’s the manipulation of muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and joints in a clinical setting that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions.
Pain and stiffness in the muscles and joints can be caused by long-term muscle tension, postural imbalance, overuse and injury. All these things can cause muscle fibres to become shortened, tiny pockets of scar tissue to form (fibrosis), and larger areas of scar tissue will get laid down as an injury heals. Shortened muscle fibres also result in reduced blood flow to the area, and inefficient removal of metabolic waste products by the lymphatic system. The net result of this is areas of the soft tissues that become stiff, hardened, and “glued together” in contracted bands – adhesions. Normal movement becomes impossible, and stiffness and pain set in. Deep tissue massage works by gently but firmly working across these bands to separate the tissues again, to lengthen shortened and contracted soft tissue structures, and to encourage efficient circulation to and from the affected area.
We only use the best and most comfortable massage tables in our clinic.
All of our treatments and services are provided in a comfortable, professional clinic setting.
In addition to our office staff, we have two friendly canine greeters ready to welcome you for your treatment.
