Acupuncture in Calgary
Massage therapy at Calgary is one of our most relaxing and helpful therapies offered. Massaging is not new, in fact, it’s been practiced for thousands of years worldwide. Many Asian countries such as China, Japan and India know and have used the benefits of massage. Even in Greece, where Hippocrates coined the phrase “the art of rubbing” to describe massage techniques.
There is, in fact, an art to massage therapy. Studies suggest that massage therapy releases chemical changes in the body which react to your pain. These “feel good” endorphins are unleashed by the masseuse as they manipulate your muscles and other soft tissues by rubbing, kneading and pressing pressure points on your body. The goal of massage is different for each person. Most patients are looking for pain relief, but massage therapy is also used for stress reduction, anxiety, depression, sports injuries and to promote relaxation.
Massage therapy at Calgary can benefit both adults and children and there are different types of massages as well. Swedish massage is most often used by athletes for sports injuries, but can be used for other reasons. Your massage therapist will discuss your medical history with you and any symptoms you are experiencing and perform an evaluation. Then, they will develop a treatment plan for you that is specific to your needs and conditions. Depending on your treatment you may benefit from aromatherapy, deep tissue massage, shiatsu massage or reflexology (foot massage).
Calgary’s Massage Therapists are able to alleviate pain and discomfort associated with several diseases and conditions such as arthritis, cancer, low-back pain, neck pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, lupus, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis and other conditions.
Stressed out muscles and joints that are sore, stiff or, tender will prevent you from sleeping well. A massage therapy session will provide noticeable results even after just one session.
We also offer Aqua Massage, a full-body massage that is an experience like no other! You get all the benefits of a jet spa, without getting wet. Simply, remove your shoes, lie down and get ready to be at your most relaxed state ever. There is a thin protective barrier between you and the jets, which is why you don’t get wet. Yet, you will feel the pressure effects of the jets on your body. Interested? Stop by or call Calgary Medical Clinic for more details on pricing and to answer any questions you may have.
