clinical massage therapy (CMT)

What is Clinical Massage Therapy?

Clinical Massage Therapy is collaboration on Swedish massage and manual manipulation of soft tissue. Some of the components of CMT are touch processes to the skin and underlying tissue, and soft tissue mobilization.

How can massage help?

Massage therapy can be utilized in many different ways. Sometimes its stress relief, reducing chronic headaches or sports related injuries. Other times it is scar tissue reduction, or helping improve range of motion of a reduced limb. It could be treatment more towards posture correction, or to help that clicking/snapping in your jaw.

There are things that your Massage Therapist can treat that most people don't even think about! How about having flat feet, or a spinal curvature? We can get you on track with what to do after getting a whiplash disorder from a motor vehicle accident?

If you are ever unsure if your therapist can treat your condition, it is as simple as asking.

Why Do People Receive Clinical Massage Therapy?
  • Back pain
  • Inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and tendinitis
  • Stress relief and stress-related conditions
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Muscle and related conditions such as spasms, strains and sprains
  • Post-injury and post surgical rehabilitation

Massage therapy can benefit most everyone whether they need relief from MVA accidents, sport injuries or stresses that cause chronic and acute pain. Massage therapy is an effective way to aid in the healing process.

Do I have to be a Physiotherapy Patient?

No, Massage Therapy does not always have to be used in conjunction with Physiotherapy. We address a myriad of conditions which do not necessarily have to be associated with a Physiotherapy treatment.

What we want you to know is we do work together, so if you do come in seeking both types of treatment/rehabilitation, you can be assured of a well-organized and integrative team who will be there for every step of your healing process.
