Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage therapy is a clinically oriented health care option that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions.
There are significant benefits to be achieved through the use of regular massage therapy treatments from a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). Massage therapy can be an important part of your health maintenance plan by:
- Reducing or eliminating pain
- Improving joint mobility
- Improving circulation
- Reducing depression and anxiety
- Reducing muscular tension
- Improving lymphatic drainage
Massage therapy can be used as a treatment for both acute and chronic conditions. RMTs can work with a wide variety of patients in the treatment of illness, injury rehabilitation and disability. Massage therapy treatments are often covered under extended health benefits.
