What is registered massage therapy?
Registered massage therapy, a regulated health profession in Ontario, is generally taught in the method of Swedish massaging. This technique involves long, smooth strokes, kneading, and other movements intent on causing relaxation of the muscles, accomplished by improving circulation to the muscles via the massage, thereby improving oxygen and nutrient supply to the tissues. While registered massage therapy helps treat injuries, illness and stress, it is also excellent for helping prevent illness and conditions before they develop. Some reasons people seek the help of RMT's include:
- back, leg and neck pain
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- athletic injuries
- joint pain
- post-surgical rehabilitation
- pregnancy support
- multiple sclerosis
- asthma and emphysema
- Parkinson's disease
- chronic fatigue syndrome
