Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is a hands-on therapy that involves the manipulation of soft tissues such as muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and joints using various manual techniques. Massage Therapy improves vascular and lymphatic circulation, enhances tissue healing, reduces muscular tension and stiffness, as well as stimulates the nervous system.

Our Process

Initial Examination

During the first visit our Registered Massage Therapist will perform an initial examination where patients will disclose any particular issue or injury, as well as their health history. After the interview, the patient will be asked to perform a series of simple movements and functional tests to help us analyze mobility and posture.

Treatment Plan

After the assessment, the Registered Massage Therapist will recommend an individual treatment plan. Treatment plans may also incorporate other therapies, such as chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, and osteopathy.

Maintenance

Although many of our patients come to Bloor Yonge Chiropractic to address specific conditions, our team will also assess your overall health and recommend any lifestyle changes. Our treatment plans may emphasize dietary changes, exercise and weight maintenance programs, and nutritional supplements, in addition to massage therapy or other treatments.
