Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy involves the manipulation of the body’s soft-tissues, which aids in alleviating discomfort associated with injury, occupational and emotional stresses, chronic pain and diseases, and the “wear and tear” of activities of daily living.

Massage therapy can be beneficial for everyone. You do not have to be in pain or injured to enjoy the benefits of massage. Massage therapy is also a great way to improve sports performance and make day to day activities easier as it allows your muscles to move and perform at their best.

All individuals can benefit from massage therapy.  At Resolve Physio and Wellness, we offer a multi-disciplinary approach to care.  Many of our clients see a Massage Therapist as well as one of our other disciplines concurrently (Physiotherapist, Acupuncturist, Dietitian) to maximize therapeutic outcomes.  Massage therapy is also clinically beneficial for those involved in car accidents. Motor vehicle insurance does cover the costs of massage for those involved in a collision.  WCB does not cover massages.

TYPES OF MASSAGE THERAPY

Deep Tissue:   A deeper pressure essential to releasing muscle tension. This therapy focuses on manually stretching individual muscle fibers, tendons, and fascia.

Relaxation:  A pleasurable soothing massage that often brings on sleep and an all-over feeling of restfulness.

Sports: This form of massage helps maintain/improve range of motion and flexibility while enhancing recovery so an athlete can return to activity and achieve optimum performance.

Therapeutic:   Generally describes any type of massage that helps to relieve pain and stress. During these treatments, the therapist’s focus can be injury or dysfunction specific.

Stamina ®:  A massage technique that focuses on alignment principles and the painful and/or debilitating effects that occur when muscles are improperly aligned. Stamina trained therapists align muscles using directional strokes within a continuous massage flow to eliminate or reduce compensation patterns, muscular pain/tension, and other debilitating symptoms while improving optimal function. Pre and post-treatment functional testing is also used to assess treatment response.

Cupping:  Cups are suctioned to the skin at key areas to improve blood flow, release toxins, and normalize muscle function.
