What is massage therapy?
The practice of massage therapy in Ottawa is the assessment of the soft tissue and joints to treat and prevent physical dysfunction and pain. This treatment can enhance, maintain, and rehabilitate physical function for athletes, weekend warriors, those suffering from pain/stiffness, and anyone interested in maintaining overall health. Soft tissues include the skin, muscles, ligaments, tendons, connective tissue, and membranes.
By treating problem-specific areas, as well as the whole body, the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, and nerve systems are normalized by boosting circulation. Massage therapy improves healing and recovery to damaged tissues. The massage therapists at Back to Health treat many different conditions and are trained in numerous specialized techniques to aid in restoring overall health!

Are chiropractic and massage therapy complementary?
Yes! Chiropractors treat joint misalignments while massage therapy can help the surrounding soft tissue (muscles and ligaments). Together, chiropractic and massage therapy form a powerful healing approach.
