From the “Weekend Warrior” to the severe arthritis sufferer, many people may benefit from the art of massage therapy.
A skillfully trained therapist applies hands- on pressure and stretching techniques to affected soft tissue such as muscles and fascia. This often leads to decreased pain, improved mobility and a general sense of well-being. Some research studies have found massage therapy to positively affect:
- Muscular system
- Nervous system
- Immune system
- Respiratory function
- Range of motion
Conditions that may be relieved with massage therapy include: Headaches, back and neck pain, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, sciatica, muscle spasms, sprain and strains, arthritis, muscular discomfort due to pregnancy, athletic injury, stress-related disorders, whiplash, some neurological conditions, and TMJ symptoms.
All of our therapists trained at the highly accredited West Coast College of Massage Therapy in New Westminster and are members of the College of Massage Therapists of BC, as well as the Massage Therapists Association of BC. RMT’s in our province have the highest educational standards in North America and are required to do on-going continuing education.
