What is Registered Massage Therapy, and what are the benefits?

Massage therapy is the treatment of the body’s muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints through physical manipulation. Massage therapy is a clinical treatment used to relieve discomfort that comes from occupational stresses, muscular overuse, sore or strained muscles etc… In addition, massage therapy is often used as a treatment for both acute and chronic pain conditions.

In both our survey/Guildford or Burnaby/Coquitlam/Lougheed locations, massage therapy can be combined with physiotherapy, which is a treatment geared towards rehabilitating muscle and joint function. It can also be used in conjunction with chiropractic therapy, which involves spinal manipulation by a licensed chiropractor. Massage therapy can be coupled with the use of medical braces and/or custom orthotics to speed up a person's active rehabilitation.

Massage therapy can only be provided by a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). A Registered Massage Therapist is an individual who is registered with the College of Massage Therapists in accordance with the Regulated Health Professionals Act and the Massage Therapy Act. RMT’s work with a wide variety of patients, often aiding a patient's active rehabilitation and pain relief.

Benefits of RMT

RMT ‘s most common use is in quick relief of mild to intense pain. The difference between a massage and taking a painkiller is that the painkiller is temporary and short lived. Additionally, painkillers often do not work well with certain forms of muscle, back or joint pain. Massage therapy, alongside chiropractic and physiotherapy, has a direct mechanical impact on muscles. Through physical manipulation, new blood is brought to the cells in ischemic tissue, otherwise known as oxygen deprived tissue and a primary reason for muscle spasms.

Registered massage treatment is not only used as maintenance in a healthy lifestyle but as a progressive routine resulting in high efficiency movement. Our Surrey/Guildford or Burnaby/Coquitlam/Lougheed massage therapists play an important role with the rest of our team to aid our patients in their recovery and management of their pain or disability.

The Evergreen massage department primarily works on soft tissue to alleviate and prevent muscle spasms around injured areas of the body prior to a physio or chiropractic adjustments. This allows for our patients to have painless joint manipulation session and a faster recovery.
