Massage therapy is hands-on treatment that works to manipulate your body’s soft tissues using varying degrees of pressure to relieve both stress and pain.
The Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy can be both a treatment and a preventative measure. People get massages to relieve pain and discomfort, as well as prevent worse injury to the body. Relaxation massages are often offered at spas, and don’t typically go as deep as a therapeutic massage.
Registered Massage Therapy must be done by a licenced professional. Many insurance providers will cover RMT treatments, though some require a doctor’s note.
Massage therapy can treat:
- High blood pressure
- Muscle tightness
- Post-op pain
- Soft issue injuries
- Sports injuries
- And more!
