THE BENEFITS OF MASSAGE THERAPY

The benefits of receiving treatment from a registered massage therapist are numerous. Whether you’re looking to reduce stress, reach peak performance, or relieve chronic pain from a large number of conditions, massage therapy may be able to help you. Massage therapy is beneficial to all ages, from newborns to seniors and through all the life stages in between. It can be effective in treating both acute and chronic conditions.

Massage therapy can be an important part of your health maintenance plan by reducing or eliminating pain, increasing range of motion, circulation and lymphatic drainage, reducing muscle tension and increasing body awareness. It has also been shown to reduce depression and anxiety.

I graduated from the 3 year massage therapy program at Algonquin College with honours and have continued my learning since then by taking a number of courses related to different techniques and conditions, including myofascial release, craniosacral therapy and oncology massage. My treatments are focus on the outcomes that clients want to achieve and I use whichever techniques are most appropriate to reach those goals.
