What is Therapeutic Massage?
At Evolve Chiropractic & Massage, our Registered Massage Therapists (RMT) offer multiple treatment styles to best address your health issues.
Relaxation Massage is based upon the Swedish technique. This style consists of slow, rhythmic soothing strokes, usually with the palm of the hand. Relaxation massage may leave you in a very mellow state. Clients will often fall asleep during this type of therapy. It is a wonderful release of anxiety and tension.
With Therapeutic Massage, we incorporate relaxation therapy, as well as other specific techniques designed to work deeper into the body tissues. Depending on the client’s need, therapeutic massage may include joint mobilization, stretching, trigger point therapy, deep pressure treatment and facial release. Heat and Ice therapy may also be incorporated into the treatment.
Therapeutic Massage can be intense; however, our practitioners strive to work within your comfort zone. You should feel what people refer to as a “good pain” (therapeutic pain) similar to that of a good stretch.
Massage sessions can either be full-body or focus on a specific area. Generally, the amount of time booked for massage dictates what can be accomplished in a particular treatment session. As a rule, more time booked equates to more massage and thus increased specific treatments. It is often the case that a person suffering from upper back and shoulder pain will also have tightness in the lower extremity which contributes to the problem. Our therapists take a full-body approach to your complaints, meaning better treatments and more complete healing. Both Relaxation and Therapeutic Massage work best in a treatment plan of consecutive sessions. This allows the therapist to work deeper and deeper, layer-by-layer into the fascia and underlying muscle fibres. This approach decreases discomfort and enhances results.
Most extended health plans include coverage for Massage Therapy. As all Massage Practitioners on the Evolve Chiropractic team are Registered Massage Therapists (RMT), we offer direct billing, dependent on your plan specification.
