What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy involves the hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of your body. This  includes your muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage therapists treat your muscles and other soft tissues of the body with varying degrees of pressure and movement to soothe aches and restore function.

There are many reasons to use massage therapy as part of your wellness plan. Massage can have both immediate and long term benefits for individuals of all ages. Our PROTx massage therapists frequently treat; general soreness/stiffness, sports injuries, overuse and repetitive strain injuries, chronic pain, lymphedema,  motor vehicle collision clients,  pregnant women, areas of scar tissue, and stress related conditions.

Massage therapy has been proven in a number of research studies to; improve posture, relax muscles, decrease heart rate, reduce blood pressure, improve core strength, enhance circulation, improve flexibility, promote better movement of joints, and produce beneficial endorphins.

Frequently Asked Questions

You do not require a doctor’s referral to attend physiotherapy, chiropractic or massage therapy. However, if you intend to use your health insurance to cover the cost you should confirm your insurers policy as some may ask you for a doctor’s referral.

The advantage of choosing a service provider that works in a collaborative practice environment like PROTx is that regardless of who you see initially, you will always be directed to the most appropriate therapist. This team environment gives you, the client, the best possible options.

Your therapist will perform an assessment. You will be asked a series of questions that will help better describe all of your symptoms in detail. This will be followed by an examination of the areas causing concern and associated areas. Following the assessment, the findings, your goals and available treatment options will be discussed.

The first appointment can take up to an hour. Subsequent treatments can be shorter or longer depending upon the condition and the treatment required.
