The practice of Massage Therapy is the assessment of the soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissue and joints by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or relieve pain (Massage Therapy Act, 1991).
Citadel Physiotherapy provides Massage Therapy services in Halifax and Dartmouth with Registered Massage Therapists who are clinically-trained to offer effective therapeutic treatments. As a multidiscipline healthcare facility, the purpose behind Massage Therapy is to help provide pain relief from injury, postural dysfunction, stress and discomfort rising from muscle tension, fatigue, myofascial pain, chronic pain and more.
Our Massage Therapists take the time to educate our patients regarding correct postural alignment to help alleviate pain and tension. We also inform our patients about specific exercises that directly affect their injury or condition. Our bodies are deeply interconnected, and the hands-on treatment we provide affects every part of the body and helps your muscles to relax. This further helps your body to release tension, facilitating better circulation and decreasing the chances of sprains and injuries.
Injuries and discomfort may be sustained in our day-to-day life such as:
Accidents or physical trauma
Degenerative or chronic issues like arthritis or migraine
Overworking your muscles in sports or another profession
To deal with such cases, professionally responsible Massage Therapists will encourage both rehabilitation and treatment according to your unique needs. At Citadel Physiotherapy, we use a combination of physiology and experience to tailor a holistic treatment plan to suit our patients needs.
Massage Therapy can be used to treat various conditions including low back pain, whiplash, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, repetitive strain injuries, athletic injuries, general muscle tension, headaches, muscle strains, tendonitis, frozen shoulder, and many other conditions.
You can, therefore, sum up the benefits of a comprehensive massage plan to the following:
Get improved joint mobility
Effective pain reduction
Better cirulation of blood and lymph
