Benefits of Massage Therapy


Massage Therapy is defined as

“the assessment of the soft tissues & joints of the body

& the treatment & prevention of physical dysfunction & pain

of the soft tissues & joints by manipulation

to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function,

or relieve pain.”

Massage Therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body,

on our general health and on our overall well-being.

Massage Therapy may be used to maintain and improve physical health

and can also ease the effects of physical pain.” (CMTO)

Many people benefit from Massage Therapy.

Whether you are in search of help in injury recovery and rehabilitation,

looking for a healthful way to deal with day-to-day stress

or simply interested in maintaining good health,

Therapeutic Massage is a safe and effective form of health care.

Massage Therapy also comes in many shapes and styles called modalities or techniques.

These techniques can vary from Massage Therapist to Massage Therapist. 

The RMT’s at Simply Massage are certified in many different techniques,

but that doesn’t mean we are always the perfect match for you.

We believe that a therapeutic relationship is based on mutual trust and respect,

and we pride ourselves on being client-focused.

This means YOU will always have control of your treatment and care with us.

That being said, we are not everyone’s cup of tea.

If your experience with us isn’t exactly what you were looking for,
