To protect the health of our clients and therapists, we are currently not treating clients until the minister of health says it is safe to do so. We hope that you will stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you as soon as we can.
Many extended health care plans provide full or partial coverage for massage therapy by a registered therapist. Check your plan to determine the terms and conditions of your coverage. Some insurance plans require a doctor's referral.
What is Massage Therapy?
Massage Therapy treats pain and dysfunction throughout the body, creating positive changes in muscle tone and general flexibility. Massage Therapy involves techniques such as deep tissue, myofascial and trigger point therapies, combined with education and remedial exercises to improve body mechanics and overall health. Regular massage is also an excellent way to reduce day-to-day stress and tension, while increasing feelings of tranquility, energy and vitality.
