Massage Therapy

It starts with gentle pressures to warm up the tissues while you rest under warming blankets or a therapeutic heating pad. You might already feel your tension drop… Deeper pressures follow in areas targeted to your condition. That’s the science. The experience of your therapist shows as the pressures respond to the tone of your muscles and your comfort level… That’s the art.

Maybe you’re feeling sore, stiff and strained. Maybe you’re recovering from an injury. Maybe you just didn’t realize the tension was building. Massage therapy can be an important part of your plan for your life, lived wellTM.

Some of the main things that we use massage therapy to relieve are:

  • Athletic injuries
  • Chronic back pain
  • High stress

How does massage therapy work?

Massage therapy focuses on the muscles and surrounding tissues. There are many different techniques that can be used, each with a desired result. Some techniques may be relaxation focused. Others are more therapeutic. Some strategies are more appropriate for acute conditions, others for chronic. That is why you want the professional clinical care of a Registered Massage Therapist.

What is a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT)?

Becoming a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) generally requires enrolling in a 6 semester long program at an accredited school, and maintenance of a regulatory college membership. This differs from a masseuse in that a masseuse does not require membership with the regulatory college, and may or may not require any formal education.

At Downsview Chiropractic, all of our massage therapists are RMTs, meaning that you will receive targeted care that is based on proven methods from an accredited therapist, every time. Registered Massage Therapy is often an insured service with extended health benefits, while a masseuse is not.
