If you are looking for Massage Therapy in London Ontario, our clinic offers RMT (Registered Massage Therapy) as an enjoyable and effective treatment for many conditions that may cause muscle or joint discomfort, stress, or postural problems.
What is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy uses a variety of hands-on techniques that apply pressure and/or stretch to the soft tissues of the body in order to relieve pain and improve function of the muscles and joints.
Benefits of Massage Therapy:
Our muscles contract repeatedly on a daily basis when we perform tasks and physical activities. When a muscle is strained, part of the muscle fiber is damaged, and there is a release of chemicals that result in inflammation and muscle contraction. This results in continued contraction of the muscle, even after activity has stopped. Sustained shortening causes decreased flexibility, decreased blood flow, and residual metabolic waste products. This can cause symptoms of stiffness or soreness, and makes you more susceptible to muscular injury or re-injury in the long run. Whether you are experiencing symptoms (such as pain or tightness) or not, the prolonged use of muscles causes a contracted state and does not allow for the proper removal of metabolic waste and blood flow, which eventually leads to “tight muscles” or “knots” in your muscles. Massage therapy relaxes both the muscles themselves, as well as the nerves leading to those muscles in order to decrease muscle tension. Multiple techniques can be utilized that allow for a stretch of the soft tissues to re-lengthen tight areas and allow for better blood flow and lymphatic drainage. Our massage therapists serving London Ontario seek to provide you with improved flexibility and decreased pain. Massage therapy provided by a qualified RMT enables your body to return to normal function as quickly as possible, as well as maintain optimal health and soft tissue function.
