Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a modality of health care that deals with musculoskeletal conditions, strains, sprains, back pain, headaches as well as brings relaxation and helps with stress management.

It serves a wide range of people from active individuals to more general public, elders, children, and women during pregnancy.

While providing you with a therapeutic massage (which can be 30, 60 or 90 minutes) our massotherapists at the Harmony Health Centre will do much more than merely “work out your knots” and ease stress. Our massage therapists delve deeper to better grasp the underlying causes of your aches and pains, particularly in recurring problems. Improve your quality of movement, your day-to-day functions, and your participation in your favorite activities.

Please note that you do not need a doctor’s referral, unless your health insurance plan requires it for reimbursement. Scientific research is continually advancing to yield even more data on all the effects that our massage therapy sessions can bring to you.

Below are some of the effects of a good massage:

  • Pure and simple pain relief
  • Normalization of muscle tone
  • Improvement of breathing mechanics
  • Enhancement of digestive transit and the urinary system
  • Improved circulation and venous return
  • Increased quality of sleep or positive impact on mood
  • Improved confidence and perceived self-efficacy
  • Reduction of stress in the heart
  • Elimination of waste products from the system
  • Soothes the nervous system
  • Helps speed the healing process of soft tissue injury
  • Increases special awareness
  • Promotes wellbeing.
