Feel Better with Massage Therapy from our Edmonton Office
There are different types of massage that range from mild and gentle (Swedish massage) to deep tissue massage and trigger point massage designed to really target muscle and connective tissue either before or after an injury.
Massage therapy is typically prescribed for therapeutic purposes in addition to traditional treatments like medication and physical therapy, but its benefits extend beyond physical injuries, muscle strains, aches, and pains. According to some studies, massage therapy also holds the potential to provide relief and help manage symptoms for the following conditions:
- TMJ (Temporomandibular joint pain)
- Digestive issues
- Relieve stress
- Anxiety Management
People often decide to try massage therapy on their own, but it may also be recommended by a physician or therapist as part of a recovery, healing, rehabilitation, or preventive care plan.
