Massage is a therapeutic therapy that can be defined as a systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body. Massage helps in improving flexibility, blood circulation and has healing effects both physically and psychologically.
The Massage Therapy treatment involves applying pressure on the pain areas of the body. At PhysioExperts, our therapists use various massage techniques, viz. stroking and gliding (effleurage), kneading the soft tissues (petrissage), etc.
Massage therapy is an effective treatment technique. At PhysioExperts, massage therapy is incorporated along with other therapies for better healing effect. We believe it is extremely important to adopt this hands on approach to gain a better understanding of the muscles and surrounding soft tissues.
We use massage therapy in conjunction with manipulative therapy and exercise rehabilitation, to provide an overall holistic approach to health care.
We are located in Kanata. If there is a particular area of weakness that you would like your physiotherapist to concentrate on, we recommend to discuss this with our experts before you begin your therapy treatment.
