Are 15 minute massage treatments long enough to be effective?
Massage treatment is very effective, even in small increments. Specific techniques will cause nerves to relax, therefore decreasing muscle tension. Increased range of motion is experienced due to the relaxed state of the muscles. Blood circulation is also increased readily bringing a new blood supply to the affected areas.
Are massage treatments better with heavy or light pressure?
Certain massage approaches are more effective than others depending on the specific conditions being treated. Very often a client will request heavy and deep pressure when usually the problem presented is more superficial. It is the top or outer layers of muscle that are adhesed and require treatment. Once they've been addressed, the underlying layer is easier to reach.
Can I continue with massage sessions between the corporate visits?
Yes, you may continue your therapy treatments in between your corporate visits. At our clinic, we can arrange for treatments from thirty up to ninety minute increments. To book an appointment, call 416.880.7819.
Why must I fill out a health history form before my massage treatment?
Health history forms are a requirement set by the Regulated Health Practitioner's Act (RHPA). The form provides the therapist with valuable health information which is necessary to develop a highly effective and individualized treatment plan for each client. All the information on this form is confidential.
Is massage therapy covered under OHIP?
Massage therapy is governed under the RHPA but unfortunately OHIP doesn't pay for massage treatments. Most extended health care plans will cover treatments but check your plan to see what type of coverage you have.
