Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body.  Massage aims to reduce pain, promote flexibility and relaxation of the muscles and soft tissue, and prevent future injury or dysfunction.  Here at Whole Therapy, we employ Registered Massage Therapists, which are practitioners that have completed at least 2200 hours of hands-on treatment before passing two provincial examinations.  Registered Massage Therapy is covered by most health insurance plans.

Pre and post natal massage

Pregnancy is an important time to get massage therapy.  The body is in a state of constant change, and growing a person is no small feat!  As the body progresses through pregnancy, massage therapy is adapted to suit the comfort and needs of the woman.  Prenatal massage aims to decrease pain associated with the growing belly as well as address other physiological and psychological changes: carpal tunnel, swollen limbs, sciatica, stress, and much more. Post natal massage aims at helping the body recover from labour and delivery, as well as reduce pain from carrying the new baby, breastfeeding, and other new-mom pains.
