Ottawa Massage Therapy

The Ottawa Physiotherapy and Sport Clinics also provide massage therapy. Massage Therapy is a hands-on manipulation of the soft tissue and joints of the body. The soft tissues include muscle, skin, tendons and associated fascia, ligaments and joint capsules.

Massage has many diverse physiological effects, which are primarily due to the therapist’s hands moving over the body. The different movements can physically stretch muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia, encourage the circulation through the tissue, inhibit muscular spasms and be either sedating or stimulating to the nervous system.

Ottawa Massage Therapy and Stress Reduction

Prolonged periods of stress can subconsciously affect many systems of the body. Stress has been shown to aggravate, or even cause, such problems as heart disease, gastrointestinal disorders, memory loss and decreased immune function.

Massage therapy is one of the best antidotes for stress. Massage boosts the body’s immune system, which can become compromised from extended periods of stress. Tension can build up in the muscles, causing a decrease in circulation and nutrient delivery to tissues. Manipulation of the soft tissue decreases muscular tension, increases removal of metabolic waste and promotes nutrient delivery to healing tissue.

With a therapeutic massage, stress can be significantly reduced. This, in turn, will increase energy, improve your outlook on life, and in the process boost your immune system function.

Massage therapy and injury prevention

Massage therapy Ottawa  is also used to help prevent injuries and maintain mobility by keeping the muscle tissues healthy and by utilizing the circulatory system to eliminate wastes and toxins that may accumulate in the muscles. This can be particularly helpful for people who live an active lifestyle or who have had injuries in the past.
