Massage therapy is an effective form of care for several types of soft tissue disorders and conditions, or, just as an aid for relaxation. Massage is effective as a stand-alone therapy or in conjunction with chiropractic care. Many patients will see one of the therapists prior to seeing me which helps to not only have them more relaxed, but loosens the muscles so that the adjustment can be easier, for both myself, and the patient. All our therapists are registered in B.C. and part of the provincial association and have completed its training and licensing requirements.
There are many types of massage therapy with Swedish massage being the most common form. It is therapeutic in nature and is designed to aid muscles in becoming more flexible and pliable and retaining these properties with successive visits. Our registered massage therapists are also trained in other forms including deep tissue, myofascial release, reflexology, shiatsu and hot stone massage. Check out http://www.rmtbc.ca for more info.
