"The practice of massage therapy is the assessment of soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of dysfunction, injury, pain and physical disorders of the soft tissues and joints by manual and physical methods to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function to relieve pain and promote health."
-Registered Massage Therapists' Association of British Columbia
Our Registered Massage Therapists offer massage treatment focused on orthopaedic recovery or more commonly referred to as either sports massage or deep tissue massage.
WHY SHOULD I SEEK MASSAGE TREATMENT?
Massage treatment from a Registered Massage Therapist can reduce pain and muscle soreness/tension, reduce stress and increase relaxation, improve circulation, boost energy and alertness, and improve immune function.
HOW WILL I FEEL AFTER A TREATMENT?
After a treatment, patients may feel groggy, tired and sore - all of which are indications the body is recalibrating itself. There may be discomfort as the body learns a new pattern of function, much like we may feel like when we change a long term habit in life! Please wait 24-48 hours for the healing reaction to subside. One can expect to come in for a minimum of 2-3 treatments in order to alleviate the original discomforts.
