About Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is one of the oldest forms of healing known to humankind. The ancient Romans and Greeks used massage therapy to maintain health and as a restorative practice, as did the Egyptian, Chinese, and Swedish cultures.

Today, Registered Massage Therapists are regulated health care practitioners.  They use their knowledge and skills in treating soft tissue conditions to help patients manage acute and chronic health conditions, support rehabilitation, and treat sports injuries.

Massage Therapy also plays a key role in preventative medicine by supporting patients dealing with the stresses of daily life to maintain their health and wellbeing.
