Although massage therapy is best known for its ability to help relieve general stress and tension, it also offers many other therapeutic benefits.
Massage therapy assists in the treatment of health issues ranging from arthritis to fibromyalgia to MS. Massage is an effective treatment for conditions such as whiplash, plantar fasciitis, tendinitis, muscular strains and postural dysfunctions. It can be an effective complement to either physiotherapy or chiropractic treatments, providing hands-on time for restoring soft tissue injuries and addressing compensatory areas of the body.
Massage is also wonderful for the expecting mom. It is a drug-free alternative to reduce the many discomforts that may come along with a pregnancy.
Our highly qualified practitioners, MAYA KALMAKOV and KATHRYN LORD offer massage therapy at the clinic on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
Because massage therapy treats the body as a whole, it is most common to have at least a 1 hour treatment to accommodate all the areas that need to be addressed. A visit includes assessment, time required to change, reassessment and remedial exercises, all as part of the treatment time allotted. Shorter visits, 30 minute and 45 minute treatments, are also possible to arrange if necessary.
