Massage therapy is a comprehensive, soft tissue intervention involving a range of techniques to manipulate the soft tissues and joints of the body.
Everyone from young toddlers to seniors can benefit from massage therapy. Massage therapy offers a variety of benefits that’s truly safe for just about anyone. You can see that at Ottawa Health Group.
Specific benefits of massage therapy include:
- Improved circulation and lymphatic drainage
- Accelerated healing
- Reduced swelling and inflammation
- Improved range of motion
- Reduced pain
- Decreased adhesions and scar tissue formation
- Decreased stress
- Improved mood
We use massage therapy to help people manage or recover from a wide range of conditions, including back and neck pain, arthritis, migraines, sports and auto-accident related injuries, fibromyalgia, and psychological disorders including anxiety and depression (since mental and emotional stress is often neurologically carried into and stored in physical tissues). A professional massage provided by a registered massage therapist can even ease the effects of chemotherapy and can hasten the healing process in post-surgical patients.
Our downtown Ottawa or Kanata (Stittsville), ON massage therapist will take a complete history and assess any areas of injury. They will release adhesions or tension in the soft tissues using their hands. Afterward, they may recommend stretches and simple lifestyle modifications to help with tissue healing.
