Massage therapy is offered at our clinics in downtown Toronto on the PATH. If you are suffering from muscle tightness, tension from overuse and/or stiff joints our Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) can help you.
Registered Massage Therapists are healthcare professionals that are regulated by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. They use a variety of hands on techniques to manipulate the soft tissues in your body (muscles, connective tissues, joints, tendons and ligaments) in order to provide therapeutic relief, decrease your pain and optimize your health.
Massage therapy can aid in the recovery of injured tissues and overused muscles in the body. In addition, RMTs can compliment other forms of therapy including physiotherapy, chiropractic care and acupuncture by speeding up the recovery process and preventing future re-injury.
At Rebalance, our Registered Massage Therapists are highly skilled and continually participate in post-graduate courses to learn advanced techniques. Our RMTs take the time to understand your specific issues and focus their treatments on your problem areas to give you immediate relief. The massage therapists utilize a combination of deep tissue massage and other myofascial techniques that are best suited to your condition.
In addition, our RMTs collaborate with the other health practitioners at Rebalance Sports Medicine if necessary in order to help facilitate a faster recovery. All of our therapists take prevention seriously and are here to improve your overall health and well being.
Our facilities are conveniently located in downtown Toronto’s Financial district close to Subway stations on both the Yonge and University line as well as being connected to the underground Toronto PATH system.
When necessary, our Massage Therapists can utilize IASTM techniques for your condition. IASTM was developed by leading medical professionals who used evidence and research to develop this innovative technique.
IASTM is a treatment option that can help to resolve pain and tightness in the body that is longstanding and that does not respond to conventional massage therapy techniques. The tools allow precision and depth in order to specifically target problem areas. IASTM is especially effective when treating dysfunctions of the fascia, scar tissue and fibrosis that develops with old injuries.
The tool allows for more efficient treatment and help to stimulate the production of new collagen (which is what the tissues in our body are composed of) and helps to ensure proper alignment of the new collagen so that the new tissue is stronger and is less likely to be re aggravated.
