Massage therapy from a Registered Massage Therapist is a therapeutic intervention that involves manipulating the soft tissues of the body (muscles, skin, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissues) to rehabilitate, maintain, or increase physical function and relieve tension and pain. Massage therapy can be used on its own as a standalone treatment or combined with other services such as occupational or physical therapy. Many people think that massage therapy is only focussed on the back and shoulders but the truth is that massage therapy can focus on any muscle group. Runners often find that their legs respond well to massage therapy and office workers can benefit from wrist and forearm massages.
At Abilities, our Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) delivers restorative and rehabilitative treatment with an aim to reducing pain and improving quality of life and independence. Some of the techniques used are myofascial release and deep tissue release.
