What Is Therapeutic Massage?
Therapeutic Massage is an approach which has been used throughout history where the therapist applies techniques to manipulate the muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, and joints of the body. Through this approach the therapist works to reduce congestion within the body by increasing circulation, breaking down scar tissue, increasing range of motion and reducing stress.
Is Massage Therapy For You?
Due to advanced training in human sciences and therapeutic technique, Massage Therapy may be beneficial to relieve a variety of conditions such as:
- Stress, anxiety or depression
- Strains, sprains, neck or back pain
- Tendonitis or Bursitis
- Joint dysfunctions and Arthritis
- Scar Tissue or Adhesions
- Whiplash and Herniations
- Swedish Massage
- Deep tissue sports massage
- Myofascial release
- Joint mobilizations

How Are Massage Therapists Trained?
All Registered Massage Therapists are primary health practitioners and are recognized by the Regulated Health Practitioners Act. Massage Therapists are required to complete a minimum of 2200 hours training in Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, Kinesiology, Hydrotherapy, Remedial Exercise, and treatment of medically related conditions. Upon graduation from an accredited Massage Therapy school, the student may apply to write the government regulated board examination. Only upon completion of these tasks may someone legally refer to him of herself as a Massage Therapist (MT) or a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT).
What to Expect On Your First Visit
An initial 1 hour appointment is required the first time you see any new therapist. During this initial appointment, a health history form must be completed as well as a full orthopedic examination. This is done so that a safe, effective and efficient treatment plan may be set up for you. Following this, the first treatment may begin. Your privacy is always respected and any information gathered is strictly confidential.
