Who Doesn’t Love a Good Massage?

 

Did you know that health experts recommend that you get at least one proper full body massage every month? And not just to pamper yourself or feel less stressed. (Though those are very valid reasons too!)

 

Registered massage therapy is an important part of your healthcare. RMT boosts your well-being and provides pain management. A rising trend, it has been proven to alleviate headaches, tendonitis, arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, and other conditions related to the body’s soft tissues and joints.

 

RMT is carried out by a licensed massage therapist registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO). They’re different from your regular masseuse as they have over 3,000 hours of training in anatomy, physiology, pathology, kinesiology, neuroanatomy, orthopaedics, remedial exercise, pain management and patient education.

 

At Royal Touch Medi Spa, we make sure our registered massage therapists provide you top-notch quality care.

Massage therapy elicits certain responses in the body:

 

  • The relaxation response: an involuntary but predictable response of the nervous system to massage techniques and touch

 

  • Mechanical responses: physical effects that take place in the body when pressure is applied to the soft tissues

 

Together, these responses can produce physical and emotional benefits.

Benefits of Registered Massage Therapy

Pain Management

 

The techniques used in massage therapy and the application of deep pressure help release endorphins–hormones which reduce pain and induce a sense of well-being.

Massage therapy helps in the management of both general and chronic pain, as well pain in specific areas such as the head, shoulders, neck, and back.

Promotes Muscle Relaxation

 

Massage therapy involves the physical manipulation of the body tissues which improves blood circulation to tight muscles helping reduce stiffness and inflammation in the muscles and joints.

 

As circulation improves, oxygen flows more efficiently throughout the body decreasing muscle fatigue. Over time massage therapy also causes the muscles to become flexible which ensures that they stay relaxed longer.

Improves Posture

 

In this day and age, posture issues plague almost everyone. People with office jobs spend too many hours sitting which can mess up their posture. Due to the poor posture, muscles also remain contracted in that position which results in chronic pain. Registered massage therapy loosens and realigns the muscles improving posture in the process.

Can Help Manage Anxiety and Depression

 

Massage therapy causes the release of the feel-good neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. Soothing interpersonal touch also releases oxytocin which decreases reactivity to stress and has been found to be therapeutic for people with anxiety.
