What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy involves specialized touch techniques that therapeutically manipulate the soft tissues of the body. Varying pressure is used by the practitioner to target areas such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, connective tissue, joints, lymphatic vessels, and other tissues as appropriate to promote relaxation and healing.
Massage can be performed on a client fully clothed, or unclothed. When unclothed only the body area that is being treated is exposed, while the rest of the client remains conservatively covered with a sheet or blanket. Treatment is most often provided on a massage table, however can also be done in a chair.
Massage is most often given using the hands, fingers, forearms of the practitioner. At times other devices such as hot stones or other specialty equipment may be used to assist the practitioner in performing the treatment.
Overall massage provides a wide variety of health benefits ranging from relaxation and pain reduction/relief to recovery from injury and prevention of disease. It encourages the release of the body’s natural pain relievers called endorphins.
What is a Registered Massage Therapist?
Whether used as a way to promote health, prevent disease and injury, or facilitate the body’s natural healing process, massage therapy can help improve your quality of life.
A massage therapist who is registered in the province of Ontario has received formal training from an institution recognized by the Ontario Government. Training includes education in the areas of human anatomy, physiology, pathology, physical assessment, neurology, interpersonal communication, ethics, and other subject areas as are relevant to this health profession.
