There are tremendous benefits to be achieved through regular massage therapy treatments from a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). Whether you want a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension or attain relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well-being.
Massage therapy can be an important part of your health and wellness by:
• Reducing or eliminating pain
• Improving joint mobility
• Improving circulation
• Improving lymphatic drainage
• Reducing muscular tension
Massage therapy can be used for the treatment of both acute and chronic conditions. RMT’s can work with a wide variety of patients, of all ages, in the treatment of illness, injury rehabilitation and disability.
Massage Therapists today use their knowledge of physiology and anatomy to combine traditional Swedish and modern massage therapy techniques with other therapies to treat their clients.
