Toronto Massage Therapy Clinics – Methods to Treat a Variety of Symptoms

Alex Vipond - OUR STAFFThere are many massage therapy clinics in Toronto. While a number of people find themselves in need of massage treatments, it is difficult to ensure that the clinic chosen is a reputable establishment. A massage therapy clinic that is able to provide safe and efficient services to their clients will staff only registered massage therapists.
A registered massage therapist that is permitted to practice in Ontario has obtained a diploma after 2-3 years of schooling at a recognized school of massage therapy. As such, these practitioners have earned the right to put the title of MT or RMT in front of their names.
In addition, a reputable massage therapy clinic requires that their staff attend Quality Assurance Programs to make sure they are practicing the latest and most up-to-date methods of massage therapy. This guarantees that their clients are receiving only the most efficient treatments.
Upon visiting a massage therapy clinic for the first time, clients can expect to undergo a thorough consultation and postural assessment. It is important to communicate openly with your professional with regards to specific issues, aches, pains and symptoms so they can come up with the most effective combination of massage treatments.
Contrary to popular belief, not all massage therapy is designed specifically as a means of healing the body after it has undergone a particular injury or trauma. In fact, many emotional and chronic conditions can be efficiently treated using methods that induce deep states of relaxation so as to alleviate pain caused by stress and tension.
The following conditions can be treated using methods of massage therapy:
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Lack of Energy
  • Stress
  • Tension
  • Anxiety
When people are suffering from the above, it can be difficult to perform daily tasks at the highest performance level. Specific techniques of massage are able to directly target these issues, in turn permitting clients to attain peaceful states of wellbeing and a significant decrease in tension.
Varieties of massage therapy that are offered in the majority of clinics include the following:
  • Deep Tissue Massage
  • Cranialsacral Therapy
  • Integrative Therapy
  • Reflexology
  • Reiki and Shen
  • Hot Stone Therapy
  • Aromatherapy
Therapy methods such as aromatherapy, hot stone therapy and reiki and shen are directly applied to treat the above chronic illnesses and syndromes. However, in most cases, they aid in the overall improvement of the physical body as well.
Hot stone therapy, for example, can be employed to treat the following symptoms:
  • Poor Circulation
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Muscular Aches, Sprains, Strains, Pain
  • Tension
  • Back Pain
  • Insomnia
  • Rheumatic Conditions
  • Arthritis
Hot stone therapy will increase circulation and aids in eliminating toxins and waste from the body.
Reflexology is another method that many people do not know a great deal about. It involves massaging and applying pressure to specific areas of the body such as the ears, the face, the hands and the feet in order to relieve tension and improve overall health.
There are many different ways to benefit from massage therapy. By visiting a clinic, it is possible to attain the most efficient treatment through a combination of methods in order to gain full benefits and feel improvements in the body.
