A Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) is a health professional that is trained to alleviate pain in the muscles and soft tissues of the body through touch. Massage therapists use special techniques to encourage circulation, improve healing, and provide a sense of relaxation.
Popular Massage Therapy Treatments
Not all massage therapy treatments are the same, as different techniques target different kinds of ailments. Sometimes, a massage therapy technique is a matter of preference. Your RMT will be trained in one or more of the following techniques:
- Deep tissue massage
- Reflexology massage
- Trigger point massage
- Sports massage
- Swedish massage
- Prenatal massage
Why Seek Massage Therapy?
There are many reasons why an individual would seek massage therapy treatment. However, some of the ailments that patients are commonly dealing with include:
- Stress and anxiety
- Upper back and neck pain
- Decreased mobility
- Sore muscles/general soreness
- Accident-related injury

If you have been the victim in a motor vehicle accident and have been prescribed treatment by the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC), then you may be eligible for treatment that comes at no cost to you.
Your Massage Therapy Appointment: What to Expect
Most patients will choose a massage therapy appointment that is 30, 45, 60, or 90 minutes in length. The appointment will begin with your RMT asking you a number of questions about your overall health, as well as the areas of the body that you are experiencing the most pain.
During the session, patients can choose to remove whatever level of clothing is to their comfort level. Your RMT will use professional draping techniques that respect your privacy. If you are experiencing pain in one area of your body more acutely, you and your massage therapist may choose to apply special focus to this area during your session. If not, your massage therapist can also perform a bull-body massage routine.

This place is amazing! I have always been reluctant to receive therapy but this place put my mind at ease. The staff was very welcoming, they explained their massage services very clearly and you get what you pay for - excellent service. As soon as you step inside, you can see the owner has put a lot of effort in the need to provide warmth and comfort for the client. I feel and see a positive change in my body from when I started coming here, and I will continue to do so. Thanks guys, you are wonderful!
