Many people are surprised to learn that massage therapy can be a vital adjunctive treatment for most health conditions because of its ability to address soft tissue such as muscles and ligaments, blood circulation, lymphatic drainage, and the parasympathetic nervous system.
Massage therapy may be beneficial in the treatment of acute and chronic injury or pain, including back pain, whiplash, headaches, sciatica, tendonitis, TMJ, and fibromyalgia. Research demonstrates that massage may improve sleep, mental focus, anxiety, asthma, and heart health.
Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) are regulated by the Ontario government after successful completion of a 2 to 3 year accredited program and entry-to-practice examinations. KIHC is home to 2 RMTs who each offer their clients additional treatment options, including Craniosacral therapy, acupuncture, and hot stone massage.
