Hands-on Therapy to Relieve Stress on Body and Mind
Registered Massage Therapy is regularly found in chiropractic clinics as a therapy that also employs a "hands on" relief of pain. At Integrated Health Centre Amanda Myerscough is our Registered Massage Therapist (RMT).
Our RMTs are trained extensively in the hands-on therapeutic treatment of the soft tissues of the body and specifically the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health. This training ensures a therapy-based approach, something that can be quite different from non-registered practicing massage therapists.
Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic impact on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems of the body. This can assist in alleviating physical ailments and removing or significantly diminishing the body stress associated with pain areas. Physical stress on the body often leads to emotional and psychological stress as well - all of which can be addressed with therapeutic treatments.
Pregnancy and Infant Massage
During pregnancy, massage can help relieve stress, muscle cramping and promote relaxation. Baby's can also benefit from massage therapy as it offers an opportuntiy for positive interaction, stimulation as well as relief and relaxation. Here at IHC, Jennie uses the Earthlite Pregnancy Bolster to offer the ultimate support at any stage of pregnancy!
Prior to beginning your treatment, your RMT will go over the massage therapy process and answer any questions you may have. She will assist you in developing a treatment plan that works for you, and can work in conjunction with other therapies you may be receiving as well.
Your RMT will ensure that your pain tolerance is identified and that you will be completely respected at all times during the treatment. There are always ways to alter a treatment to continue to have a positive impact while maintaining your comfort as a patient.
