A Therapeutic massage is a treatment massage using many different techniques. It can be a gentle relaxing massage or a tense and deep tissue massage. After muscle and tendon injuries, fractures, operations, injured muscles become tense, knotted and immobile. Therapeutic massage techniques employed by registered massage therapists in Toronto can assist in speeding up the healing process and prevent complications such as scar tissue formation, decreased joint mobility and assist the patient to return to their normal life. Therapeutic or Remedial massage treats not only the injured area but the whole body and addresses the root cause of pain. Therapeutic massage can lower cortisol levels and increase serotonin and dopamine levels. These hormonal changes control pain, improve mood, enhance sleep, decrease stress and anxiety, and promote relaxation.

Should I have A Therapeutic Massage Regularly?
It all depends on the condition and injury. You may need only a few treatment sessions for new and acute injuries; however a chronic condition such as frozen shoulder or low back pain often requires more frequent or ongoing infrequent maintenance treatments that are gradually spaced out. A maintenance massage is usually scheduled on a regular monthly basis to maintain the mobility and improve function and prevent worsening of the condition.
