Massage Therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body. These include muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage can help alleviate pain and discomfort associated with many different musculoskeletal conditions, every day occupational stresses, and chronic pain.
RMT services are not covered by OHIP, however, most extended health care plans will cover part or all massage therapy treatments.
Your first visit to a Massage Therapist will require that you fill out a confidential health history. Your therapist will assess your individual needs based on your health history and intake, allowing you to be part of any decision making with regards to a treatment plan moving forward.
The videos we have posted are not medical advise or part of a treatment plan. They are intended for general education and demonstration purposes for non complex pain due to everyday occupational stresses. These exercises should not be painful and should be done within ones own comfort and tolerance.
