Massage therapy at STRIVE is performed by Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) with expertise in musculoskeletal assessment and hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body. It can be used to treat both acute and chronic injuries and conditions. Massage therapy can also help with injury prevention.
Treatments can be targeted to the muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and joints to optimize health and performance. The therapeutic effects of massage therapy can improve physical function by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems of the body. Psychologically, the effects of massage can assist in relieving stress and enhancing feelings of well-being.
Before a treatment, your therapist will provide an initial assessment, taking into consideration your specific health history and concerns. Working with you, your therapist will propose a personalized treatment plan and ensure you’re comfortable throughout the session. Your massage therapist must obtain consent prior to your session before any treatment can occur.
