What Is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is a hands-on manipulation of the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and improves health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved, and pain can be relieved or prevented through the use of massage therapy.
What can I expect when I go for a massage appointment?
On your first visit you will complete a confidential health history form. Your therapist will go over your health history form with you to determine your treatment needs.
Must I undress for my massage?
Massage therapists are required to cover/ drape you with a sheet so that they expose only the area which they are working on. Undressing is optional, so just let your therapist know your comfort level.
Am I expected to talk during the massage?
If you wish to have silence, please say so at the beginning of the treatment. The therapist may, however, require verbal information pertinent to health findings during the treatment. You are in control of your treatment, if you wish to stop the treatment at anytime for whatever reason you may do so.
After my appointment, is there anything I need to have on hand or anything specific I should do?
An epsom salt bath is recommended to soothe and to calm muscles, and enhance the benefits of the massage. It will help to alleviate stiffness you may feel the next day, and it is also recommended for use after workouts for the same reason. Drink plenty of water to keep your tissues hydrated.
Do provincial health care programs cover massage therapy?
Massage therapy is not covered by OHIP, but many private insurance companies cover treatment from a registered massage therapist. Please consult your policy.
Our massage therapists are regulated health professionals who have received two or three years of comprehensive training, and are registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. Through the College, they participate in a quality assurance program that ensures high professional standards and quality client care.
