Massage Therapy Experts in St. John’s
Assessing and treating soft tissues of the body is the primary responsibility of a massage therapist. If you suffer from chronic painful conditions, soft tissue injury and/or dysfunction, stress, anxiety, hypertension (or any number of other physical and mental health issues) you could benefit from the attention of a massage therapist.
We often store tension in the muscles of the back, neck and shoulders often without realizing it. Massage therapy can help in stress reduction by removing tension from those affected areas. At Action Physiotherapy, our massage therapist harness a wide range of different techniques in order to positively manipulate the circulatory, musculoskeletal, nervous, and respiratory systems. People of all ages have been shown to improve with the healing touch of massage therapy, delivered in a professional, relaxing environment.
What To Expect When Visiting A Massage Therapist
When you arrive for your appointment, your massage therapists will start by going through your history. Getting a complete understanding of how the issue began and how you have responded to physical treatments in the past will help the massage therapist determine the best approach, methods, and contact pressure. You can prioritize multiple problem areas, and request where you want more attention. During the session, your massage therapist will seek feedback from you in order to maximize healing but also prevent pain. A massage therapist provides a safe, respectful, and relaxing atmosphere where you can expect communicative and methodical treatment.
Duration Of Treatment
The frequency of appointments will be determined between you and your massage therapist, depending on the type and severity of injury /health issue. Sessions are covered by most health insurance plans.
