Whether you are experiencing chronic pain from a lingering ailment or acute pain from a recent injury, our Massage Therapists at Max Physiotherapy are dedicated to helping you live a pain-free life.
What is Massage Therapy?
In massage therapy, varied techniques are used to relax muscles and encourage healing in soft tissue, thereby reducing pain and muscle tension. Massage therapy can also provide overall stress reduction and relaxation. Various massage therapy techniques can be used depending on your particular situation, which includes Relaxation Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Therapeutic Massage, Prenatal Massage, and Hot Stone Massage. Our Max Physiotherapy Massage Therapists will discuss with you what best suits your needs and expectations.
Massage Therapy is a Natural, Drug-Free Health Care Service
We understand that pain medication may sometimes be required. Alternatives such as massage therapy, however, can help you without having to rely on medication to manage pain. Massage therapy has been shown to be highly successful in treating a wide range of conditions.
What are the Benefits of Massage Therapy?
While there seems to be universal agreement that massage “feels good,” it also offers many specific benefits. The therapeutic use of massage affects all systems of the body, most particularly circulatory, muscular, facial, and nervous systems. Chronic muscle tension, stress, and injury often create bands of painful, rigid tissue called adhesions in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Muscle adhesions impact circulation, causing pain, limited mobility, and inflammation. Massage therapy is also effective in the control of pain – both chronic and acute, in stress reduction and in creating a sense of relaxation and well-being. It can be used on its own, or as a complement to any one of the many wellness services offered at Max Physiotherapy. Aside from the benefits of massage for physical conditions, patients at Max physiotherapy enjoy massage simply because of its ability to soothe and relieve stress.
