(RMT) REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPY BURLINGTON
What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is the manipulation of muscle or other soft tissues with the help of hands and fingers. This clinically oriented treatment alleviates the discomfort and chronic pain conditions of the body. The therapy includes soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes on the topmost layer of muscle.
How does Massage Therapy work?
When a client visits our clinic, we perform a thorough physical examination so as to understand the medical history and overall health of the patient. This examination includes assessment for a range of motion, orthopaedic tests, and palpation of the muscles and joints. Our registered massage therapists (RMT) follow the detailed history while treating them. Based on the results of the diagnosis, the therapists recommend and administer the appropriate treatment.

Secondly, massage therapy helps with hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, anxiety, insomnia, persistent fatigue, digestive disorders, psychological issues, etc. Finally, it stimulates the circulation of the blood and improves the supply of oxygen to the body.
