Paradise Physiotherapy’s Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) use a variety of techniques, including Graston and cupping, to treat a number of conditions. They are also highly trained to work in a multidisciplinary atmosphere and tailor a treatment plan appropriate for you.
Massage therapy is the assessment and treatment of the soft tissues of the body. Therapeutic massage is used to prevent dysfunction, to relieve pain, to restore or augment function and to promote health. It is used to help alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday stresses, muscular overuse and many chronic pain syndromes.
Massage therapists work to improve the circulation of blood and to speed the removal of waste products from muscles. Their techniques increase the flexibility of muscles, ligaments and other soft tissues. Some people visit a massage therapist to relieve pain and others want to relax and reduce stress. At Paradise Physiotherapy, our therapists work closely with the physiotherapists and chiropractor to develop a “team approach” to total health.
Our massage therapists use Swedish massage, trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage, neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, and Graston and Cupping Therapy. In addition, they educate about home exercises, posture and stretching.
