Massage therapy is a form of treatment where muscles and other soft tissues are manually manipulated using the therapist’s hands. This remedial technique is used to improve circulation, release muscle tension, decrease stress, balance the body’s energy, and stimulate the body’s natural healing ability. With a well-designed treatment plan, massage therapy can decrease injury recovery time, scar tissue formation, and help alleviate pain and discomfort.

When should I see a massage therapist?
  • Headaches and migraines (related to fatigue, anxiety, and stress)​

  • Work-related stress

  • Pain, muscle aches, and muscle spasms (related to physical activity, trauma, or surgery)

  • Problems with circulation

  • Poor posture and repetitive strain injuries

  • Sprains and strains (related to physical activity and sports injuries)​

  • Joint pain associated with arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis

  • Pre and post-natal pain and discomfort

Do I need a doctor's referral for
massage therapy?*

You may not need a doctor's note or prescription for massage therapy. Massage therapy can be effective as a primary treatment, or as an adjunct to other therapeutic interventions such as chiropractic care and physiotherapy. It may also be recommended in the co-management of certain medical illnesses.
