Massage is the manipulation of the body's soft tissues. Massage techniques are commonly applied with the hands, elbows, forearms, or a device. There are many different types of massages including but not limited to: Swedish, deep tissue, structural integration, trigger point, manual lymphatic drainage, sports massage, Thai massage, and medical-massage.
- Our Registered Massage Therapists (RMT’s) have minimum 2000 hours of extensive hands on training.
Do I need a doctor’s Note?
- Typically, you do not need a medical doctors note to receive a massage. Most benefit plans have 80-100% coverage. However, A Medical Doctor or Chiropractor referral is
sometimes required for massage therapy sessions as some insurance plans may need a note to reimburse you for your appointment. Please call your insurance to confirm.
What kind of tools do massage therapists use?
It depends on the training of the individual massage therapist, but most massage therapists simply use their hands and arms during treatment. Some may also use metal/plastic instruments (such as Graston or gua-sha), acupuncture, cupping, hot stones, heat pads, and creams or oils to help reduce skin friction.
