Registered Massage Therapy

 

Massage therapy is manual manipulation of soft body tissues (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s health and well-being. There are dozens of types of massage therapy methods (also called modalities).

People seek massage therapy for a variety of reasons to reduce stress and anxiety, relax muscles, rehabilitate injuries, reduce pain, and promote overall health and wellness. 

 

While there are several types of massage, two fundamental categories are:

  • Rehabilitative massage – also known as deep tissue, medical, therapeutic or clinical massage.
  • Relaxation massage - also known as Swedish massage.
