At Joint Therapy: Massage and Physiotherapy Clinic, we are home to several registered massage therapists. Massage therapy involves the manipulation of the body’s soft tissues (muscles, connective tissues, tendons, and ligaments) in order to normalize and restore optimal functioning. This is done by a variety of hands on techniques. These techniques involve applying pressures to the affected tissues, either with movement or stationary holding as well as applying pressure while moving your extremities through their range of motion.
What Are the Health Benefits of Massage?
Massage therapy improves your body’s circulation. This allows increased blood flow of fresh nutrients and oxygen to an area that may have been stagnant. Improved circulation to the tissues helps aid in elimination of waste products such as lactate acid, speeds healing, and improves recovery time. Massage therapy can have a positive effect on both your circulatory and immune systems. This can improve your blood pressure, circulation, muscle tone, and even digestion.
