Massage Therapy in Brampton

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy involves using manipulative techniques of pressing, kneading, and stroking the soft tissues and muscles on various areas of the body. It is one of the oldest forms of homeopathic treatments to help alleviate pain, discomfort, swelling, soreness, and tension.

Massage therapy also helps improve muscle tone, stimulates blood circulation, and supports the lymphatic system for improved functioning throughout the body. While massage therapy primarily targets the muscles and soft tissues just below the skin, an alternative form of massage therapy is deep tissue massage that targets the deeper layers of muscles and tissues.

How are Massage Therapy Treatments Performed?

Massage therapy treatments are performed with the patient typically lying down on their back or stomach, depending on the area being treated. Prior to treatment heat may be applied to the area to help loosen up tight, tense muscles and connective tissues.

The massage therapist applies the most appropriate methods based on the need of the patient, the reason for massage therapy, and overall objectives.

Can Massage Therapy be used with other types of Treatments?

Massage therapy can be used with other types of treatments including physiotherapy and chiropractic care. When part of a complete treatment plan for injuries and related medical conditions, massage therapy can help promote faster healing and recovery.

How Often Should I Get Massage Therapy?

The frequency of massage therapy treatments will vary from one person to the next. It will depend on your underlying reasons for receiving massage therapy. For instance, if your objective is to alleviate tension and stress, weekly treatments can be highly therapeutic. On the other hand, if you are recovering from a muscle sprain or strain, massage therapy treatments two or three times a week might be more appropriate.

Is Massage Therapy Painful?

While there can be minor discomfort at the start of massage therapy, most people report a sense of relaxation and calmness by the end of their treatment. Some people even become so relaxed they fall asleep during their massage therapy sessions.


What Are Some Benefits Of Massage Therapy?

Some of the benefits you could gain from massage therapy could include:

  • A sense of relaxation.
  • Reduced stress and anxiety levels.
  • A general calmness and feeling well-rested.
  • Deeper restful sleep cycles.
  • Improved circulation throughout the body.
  • A reduction in tension, pain, and stiffness.
  • Improved breathing.
  • Renewed energy.
  • An overall improvement to your health and well-being physically, mentally, and spiritually.

How Long Does It Take Before I Notice Any Results?

Most patients report short-term relief after a single massage therapy treatment. However, continued treatments provide a cumulative effect to bring optimal results. Regular treatments can help strengthen and tone the body, reduce tension, improve blood flow, and reduce unnecessary strains on muscles and connective tissues. Furthermore, ongoing massage therapy can be beneficial to reduce fatigue, increase energy levels, and provide more restful sleep.


What If I Have Other Underlying Conditions?

Massage therapy can help treat other underlying conditions, such as stimulating or calming the nervous system, helping repair damaged muscles and connective tissues, and alleviating pain and discomfort associated with chronic conditions like arthritis.
