Register Massage Therapy

Registered massage therapy is a hands-on treatment that involves the manipulation of soft tissues in the body to promote relaxation, relieve pain, and improve overall well-being. Massage therapy focuses on the manual manipulation of muscles, tendons, ligaments using both active and passive modalities administered by a trained professional known as a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT).

One of the primary benefits of massage therapy is its ability to reduce muscle tension and promote relaxation. Through various techniques, RMTs can help release tight muscles and ease the buildup of tension. This can have a profound effect on reducing stress levels, improving sleep quality, and enhancing overall mood. Additionally, massage therapy can help improve circulation, allowing oxygen and nutrients to reach the muscles more efficiently, resulting in increased energy levels and improved physical performance.

Another significant benefit of registered massage therapy is its ability to alleviate pain and discomfort. RMTs are skilled in identifying and targeting specific areas of pain or injury, using techniques such as deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release. By manipulating the soft tissues in these areas, massage therapy can help reduce inflammation, promote healing, and provide relief from chronic pain conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and migraines. Massage therapy is not only beneficial for relieving chronic pain but it can also play a crucial role in injury prevention and rehabilitation, as RMTs are trained to assess and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions including sports injuries, repetitive strain injuries and postural imbalances.

Registered massage therapy is not only beneficial for physical health but also for mental and emotional well-being. The power of touch, combined with a calming environment, can have a profound effect on reducing anxiety, improving mood, and promoting a sense of relaxation and overall well-being. Regardless of your motivation for seeking massage therapy, it is important to communicate your goals with your RMT at Riverwood so that they can develop a treatment plan that is specific to you and your needs to facilitate the best results.
