What is massage therapy?
Is massage only for relaxation? What are its benefits?
Regular massage therapy from a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) enhances both mental and physical well being and provides an hour of blissful relaxation. Regular massage can aid in:
- managing chronic and acute pain
- reducing stress
- improving circulation
- decreasing muscle tension
- easing breathing difficulties
- lowering blood pressure
- reducing headaches
- improving mobility
- improving posture
- promoting sleep
- managing anxiety & depression
- improving overall wellness
What can I expect during my first massage?
RMTs are trained to ensure the sheet on the massage table always drapes you and protects your privacy. Only the body part being worked on will be uncovered. Your therapist periodically check if the pressure intensity is at a good level. You should communicate with your therapist about pressure at any time, as well as about draping or any pain you might be feeling throughout the massage. You can expect complete quiet from your therapist or relaxing conversation if you prefer. Calming music can also be played if you wish.
Your RMT will let you know when the massage is complete and will leave the room while you dress. When you’re ready, open the door to signal to your therapist to come back. You will then be provided with water, self-care advice, and your recommended treatment plan. Feel free to ask your therapist any questions you may have at this point.
