Massage Therapy dates back thousands of years. Hippocrates defined medicine as the “art of rubbing.” Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body including, muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and joints. It is a clinically orientated health care option that helps alleviate discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions. Massage Therapy can be used to treat both acute and chronic conditions. Registered Massage Therapists can work with a variety of clients in the treatment of illness, injury rehabilitation, pregnancy and disability.
Examples of chronic conditions that an RMT can help alleviate:
- Anxiety and depression
- Asthma and Emphysema
- Back, leg, and neck pain
- Cancer symptoms
- Carpal tunnel syndrome (repetitive strain)
- Chronic Fatigue syndrome
- Fractures and edema
- Gastrointestinal disorders

Massage Therapy can be beneficial to a wide variety of conditions, so communicate your injuries and areas of concern with your therapist, and they can use their knowledge to address the issues. For general health and wellbeing, an RMT can help increase the immune system and prevent injuries so that you can perform and function at your optimum. Massage Therapy also has emotional benefits that include reducing anxiety, stress and promoting more restfulness.
