What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is a hands-on manipulation of soft tissues in the body to enhance a person’s health and well-being. It’s a practice that involves rubbing, pressing, and manipulating muscles, tendons, ligaments, and skin to promote relaxation, reduce pain, alleviate stress, and improve circulation.

Massage therapy Techniques

Massage therapists use their hands, fingers, elbows, forearms, and sometimes specialized tools to apply various techniques that can include:
This technique involves long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, tapping, and vibration to help relax and energize the body.
Focuses on deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue, aiming to release chronic muscle tension by using slower, more forceful strokes or friction.
Geared towards athletes, it can help prevent or treat injuries, enhance flexibility, and improve athletic performance using techniques tailored to the athlete’s specific sport or activity.
Targets specific areas of muscle tightness and knots (trigger points) that can cause pain in other parts of the body.
Aims to release tension in the fascia (connective tissue) surrounding muscles, allowing for increased mobility and reduced pain.
Specifically designed for pregnant women to alleviate discomforts associated with pregnancy, such as back pain or swollen ankles, and to promote relaxation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Manual Therapy

  • What conditions or issues can be treated with manual therapy?

    Manual therapy is effective for various musculoskeletal conditions, including joint pain, stiffness, muscle tension, and limited range of motion. It can also aid in addressing sports injuries, postural problems, and chronic pain. Our experienced therapists will assess your specific condition and tailor a manual therapy approach to meet your needs.

  • 2. How is manual therapy different from other forms of physiotherapy?

    Manual therapy involves hands-on techniques such as joint mobilization, manipulation, soft tissue massage, and stretching. While other physiotherapy modalities may use equipment or exercises, manual therapy relies on skilled and precise manual techniques to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal issues. It's a personalized, hands-on approach to promoting healing and improving function.

  • Is manual therapy painful, and what can I expect during a session?

    Manual therapy is generally not painful, and our therapists prioritize your comfort throughout the session. You may experience a mild sensation as specific techniques are applied, but any discomfort is typically temporary. During a session, we'll discuss the techniques being used, answer any questions you may have, and ensure you feel at ease throughout the process.

  • Do I need a referral from my doctor for manual therapy?

    In most cases, you can schedule a manual therapy session without a doctor's referral. It's a direct service that you can access independently. However, if your insurance plan or specific circumstances require a referral, we can assist you in obtaining one. Our aim is to make the process seamless so you can benefit from manual therapy as soon as possible.

  • How much does acupuncture cost, and is it covered by insurance?

    The cost of acupuncture sessions can vary, and insurance coverage depends on your specific plan. Some insurance providers offer coverage for acupuncture, while others may not. We recommend checking with your insurance company to understand your coverage details. We also offer assistance with any required documentation for insurance claims to make the process smoother for you.

If you’re considering acupuncture as part of your physiotherapy treatment, it’s essential to seek treatment from a qualified and licensed physiotherapist who has received appropriate training in acupuncture techniques. Discuss your specific condition, treatment goals, and any concerns you may have with the physiotherapist to ensure a comprehensive and suitable treatment plan.

My therapist is kind and understanding. She takes the time to explain the therapy and why its beneficial for me. She gives me the opportunity to hold myself accountable but helps me understand the importance of doing the exercises on my own. I love it here! I have felt welcomed since the first day.
