What is Massage Therapy?
It is a healing technique that is used to relax the body and to treat musculoskeletal injuries. Though there are various styles of Massage Therapy, all of them are focused on restoring the muscular system in the body to optimal function and reducing muscular tension. Some of them include Swedish Massage, Thai Massage and Athletic Massage.
Is Massage Therapy useful for only my neck and back?
It is a common misconception that Massage Therapy is only beneficial for stress-related neck/shoulder and lower back issues. However, massage can benefit all areas of the body. For example, a carpenter that has a very physical job which requires lots of fine motor skills with their hands and fingers might find their forearm muscles becoming sore and tight. This person would significantly benefit from a massage to their forearms. Don’t’ hesitate to ask your Massage Therapist today to work on areas that are troublesome for you!
Should I only get a massage if I’m feeling stressed out?
As mentioned above, receiving regular Massage Therapy treatment is beneficial for more reasons than just stress. It helps keep the body flexible and mobile and is also helps prevent injuries that can occur due to muscle stiffness.
How often should I go for a massage?
While there’s no exact recipe for how often to go for a massage, it’s recommended to go at least once a month in order for your body to reduce the muscle tension that builds up from daily stresses. However, it’s best if you and your Massage Therapist make a treatment plan together that’s best suited for you.
Do I have to completely undress, even if there are towels that cover me?
It is usually recommended to have the skin around the area that you are receiving treatment for exposed. All of our Massage Therapists are extremely professional and are in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. However, if you feel uncomfortable exposing any areas of your body, speak with your Massage Therapist and they will find a way to work with you.
