Massage Therapy is the application of soft-tissue manipulation techniques to the body, generally intended to reduce stress and fatigue while improving circulation. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. And, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.
Does massage therapy hurt?
It can, but not always. There may be some discomfort because of an injury to the muscle or joints. Inflamed and strained muscles may feel sore after or during a treatment. The end result is often a very relaxed and pain-free feeling.
Are the massage therapists at Chiromedics™ registered?
Most definitely. All of the therapists at Chiromedics™ are registered with the appropriate governing bodies and are licensed to practice in Ontario.
Will I need to get undressed?
You may be required to remove some clothing, but you will not be asked to remove all of your clothing. Areas not being worked on will either remain clothed or be covered by a sheet or blanket.
Can I get a massage even if I’m not in pain?
Of course! Massage therapy can be a very effective tool for general relaxation and a wonderful way to relieve the stress of everyday life.
