Individualized Treatment Plan

Before a treatment, your Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) will propose a personalized treatment plan based on an initial assessment, and after reviewing your health history. The assessment consists of various tests to determine the condition of your muscles and joints. Any personal and health information you provide to your Registered Massage Therapist is completely confidential, and will be safeguarded to ensure privacy. Be also aware that your health record cannot be released or transferred without your written consent.

Your Registered Massage Therapist must also obtain your consent to work on any part of your body, regardless of whether you are fully clothed, or fully or partially covered with sheets or blankets. Your privacy will always be highly respected, and you may withdraw your consent for treatment at any time.

Various specialized movements of the hands, over the skin or clothes, make up the Massage Therapy treatment. The Massage Therapist will work with your level of pain tolerance during the treatment, and the treatment can be stopped at any time should the treatment become uncomfortable.

Please note that massage therapy is not covered by OHIP, but many private insurance companies cover treatment from a Registered Massage Therapist as part of their extended health care plans. We advise you to consult your specific policy, and reach out to your insurance company if you need clarification as to what massage services can be claimed.

Some Conditions Treated with Massage Therapy are:


Headache is a word used to explain pain in any part of the head and top of the neck. Tight muscles in the upper back, neck and jaw can lead to headaches. Massage Therapy can help reduce knots and tension in these muscles.


The tendon is the band of fibrous connective tissue that attaches muscles to bone. Tendonitis is inflammation of this tissue usually from overuse of that muscle. Massage Therapy can help by reducing tension in tight muscles and tendons involved, and guiding the patient through range of motion exercises to return back to normal function.


A bursae is a small cushion near joints that provides extra support and comfort to bones and soft tissue, that crosses those bones at the joint. When these bursae get inflamed it is called bursitis. Massage Therapy can help by reducing the tension in tight muscles around the joint, and guiding the patient through range of motion exercises to return back to normal function.

Ligament sprains

A ligament can be sprained due to a sudden unexpected movement, such as rolling your ankle on uneven ground for example. Massage Therapists can diagnose the tissue that is injured and work with you to minimize the amount of damage from an injury, and speed the healing and recovery process.

Muscle strains/sprains/spasms

Sudden or heavy lifting movements during work or sports can create unexpected muscle strains, sprains, or spasms. Massage Therapy can help with muscle issues such as these.


This fantastic type of massage is a safe way for women to get a relaxing massage during pregnancy. Prenatal massage can really help to alleviate body aches related to pregnancy, reduce stress, and ease muscle tension.

Stress reduction

Stress is a reaction to a situation, and it hinders our ability to concentrate and make decisions. Stress can also create physical issues such as tight muscles, headaches, restlessness or disturbed sleep. Massage Therapy can help with the physical responses to stress.

Carpal tunnel syndrome

Within the bones on the palm side of your wrist, a small tunnel; the carpal tunnel, is formed. Massage Therapy can help with this condition by reducing tension in muscles of the arm and hand, and helping patients with a self care plan.


Arthritis is joint inflammation. Massage Therapy can help patients with this condition by decreasing muscle tension and swelling around the joints, and working with the patient to help maintain as much range of motion as possible.


This is a very common problem among pregnant women, but it can affect anyone who has problems with fluid getting trapped in the body tissues. Massage to deal with edema is one of the best ways to alleviate your swelling problems.


Scoliosis occurs when your spine curves unnaturally. Massage can help treat and relieve the effects of scoliosis.

Pre/Post – partum

Massage therapy can help relieve stress and anxiety during difficult and changing times.

Disc Herniations

Massage Therapy helps disc herniation by reducing tension in the muscles around the spine. By relieving muscle tension, pressure on the disc is reduced.


Massage Therapy helps alleviate sciatic nerve pain by loosening tight lower back muscles, as they can place stress on your nerve roots.

Postural imbalances

Massage therapy is an excellent solution when it comes to treatment of postural imbalances. Symmetry of muscles and joint mobility are what is necessary to achieve appropriate posture and function.


Whiplash typically occurs as the result of a sudden injury, most commonly a vehicle accident, or a sports injury. Whiplash is often pain felt in the neck, but can also be pain in the face or jaw, upper or lower back, and even the arms. Massage Therapy can help treat the underlying soft tissue injuries.

Asthma symptoms

Massage Therapy for asthma symptoms is an ideal kind of treatment that relaxes all of the vital respiratory muscles, and allows your lungs to open freely.

Temporomandibular joint dysfunction

The temporomandibular joints are your jaws. Jaw pain can occur as a result of the joint being in a bad position, and not moving properly. Massage Therapy can effectively treat all muscles groups.

Massage Therapy Benefits

Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.

Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body, and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous, and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved; and physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of Massage Therapy.

Modern massage techniques can be traced back to the 1700s and the early development of Swedish massage, the first systematic method of therapeutic massage based on physiology. Today’s Registered Massage Therapists use their knowledge of anatomy and physiology, to combine traditional Swedish and modern Massage Therapy techniques with exercise and other therapies to treat their clients.
