Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft body tissues to enhance health and well-being. It is based on the premise that the body is a unit with interrelated parts, each requiring attention to keep it functioning efficiently. A form of alternative medicine, massage therapy Vancouver uses various hands-on therapies and techniques to improve one’s health and encourage well-being. It is often used to treat people who suffer from chronic pain or are recovering from an injury.
Registered Massage Therapists (RMT’s) in Vancouver are trained professionals who use massage to treat their patients for a wide range of conditions — everything from physical pain and emotional stress to pregnancy relief and imbalances in posture or movement.
As massage therapy improves the blood flow to tissues and helps reduce inflammation, it is an effective way to help the body reestablish homeostasis and heal more quickly from injury. Many of our massage therapy Vancouver patients report immediate improvements in musculoskeletal aches and pains, a decrease in anxiety or fatigue, better movement overall and even improvements in their mental clarity and function.
At Doctors’ Choice Integrative, our Vancouver RMT has years of experience and uses various massage techniques to support your well-being: effleurage, Swedish massage, myofascial release, trigger-point therapy, craniosacral therapy, neuro-meningeal manipulation, somato-emotional release, lymphatic drainage, deep tissue massage and much more!
