Woman getting massageWho doesn’t need some time to step away from their busy day and
find a little relaxation? We all do! Our Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) at Thrive can help you achieve rest and relaxation, enhance your overall wellness and help reduce muscle tension and pain with massage therapy.

Massage therapy is effective in addressing a broad range of concerns from sports injuries, muscle pain, stress and anxiety, to specific pediatric, prenatal and postnatal concerns, and is an essential component in achieving optimal wellness. By increasing joint mobility and improving circulation we are able to promote the body’s innate ability to heal.

Many of our patients with acute and chronic conditions have especially experienced the benefits of incorporating regular massage therapy treatments into their wellness plans.

Our Registered Massage Therapists at Thrive Chiropractic & Wellness Centre offer a variety of techniques in their practice to ensure that your individual needs and goals are met!

How Massage Works

Massage therapy improves your circulation by bringing oxygen and other nutrients to the body’s tissues, flushing out lactic acid and other waste being stored in the muscles. In doing this we are able to break down adhesions in the muscles, reducing tension and pain, while simultaneously improving mobility and range of motion.

Massage therapy can prove beneficial to many conditions, including but not limited to the following:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma and emphysema
  • Cancer
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Dislocations
  • Edema
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches

  • Inflammatory conditions
  • Insomnia
  • Lymphoedema
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Muscle tension and spasm
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Post-surgical rehabilitation
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

  • Pregnancy and labor support
  • Sciatica
  • Scoliosis
  • Sports injuries
  • Strains and sprains
  • Stress and stress-related conditions
  • Stroke
  • Tendinitis
  • Whiplash

What to Expect When You Become a Massage Patient

At your first visit in our clinic, you will have a thorough consultation with your registered massage therapist prior to your appointment. This will enable your massage therapist to gain an overall understanding of your concerns and goals as well as any details of your health history. Your massage therapist will then outline how they would like to proceed with the appointment and will ask you to undress to your individual comfort level before stepping out of the room.

At the end of the appointment your massage therapist will leave the room allowing you time to gradually get up from the bed and get dressed. They will then meet you back in the room to see how you are feeling as well as answer any questions you may have. Your massage therapist may offer some stretches to utilize at home, and will discuss an individualized treatment plan going forward to help you achieve your wellness goals. If your massage therapist determines that you would benefit from seeing another healthcare professional, they will make the appropriate referral at this time.

At Thrive Chiropractic & Wellness Centre, our goal is to provide patient-focused care. That means that we promise to listen carefully to every patient’s needs, design an appropriate care plan, and pay attention to comfort throughout the massage. Our RMTs are experienced, highly skilled therapists that provide personal care in a healing environment.
