What is massage therapy? Massage therapy is a hands-on treatment performed on the soft tissue structures of the body. It can effectively alleviate pain and discomfort while returning the body to a state of relaxation. The thoughtful application of various massage techniques can greatly support your healing and overall health, whether you’re recovering from an injury or want to reduce your levels of stress.

At HealthOne, we provide some of the most effective massage therapy in downtown Toronto. Through the use of our therapeutic hands-on massage techniques, we’re confident that our services will bring you back to an optimal state of health and wellbeing. We look forward to providing you with an exceptional massage therapy experience at our rehab clinic!

AREAS OF EXPERTISE

General Physical Health and Wellbeing

Chronic Pain Management & Relief

Be it stress, tension, or pain from an injury or pre-existing condition, there are many reasons why you may seek massage therapy to improve your physical health. Hands-on massage techniques can provide targeted relief of pain, discomfort, and stiffness in the body that may be hindering your day-to-day life. Our massage therapists are skilled in identifying the root cause of your discomfort, allowing them to accurately treat it using a unique combination of techniques. Some people may have a specific condition they wish to have treated, whereas others may simply want to improve their general health through the process of a hands-on massage. Many patients benefit from massage therapy as an ongoing component of their care approach to maintain their physical health and wellbeing throughout their life. 

Massage treatment is also an effective option for people who suffer from chronic pain because it can improve circulation and increase joint mobility, resulting in less pain. At HealthOne, we understand how challenging it can be to deal with ongoing pain and will do our best to reduce your symptoms. Our massage therapists will knead, move, and apply pressure to the affected body part and surrounding areas. This can provide direct relief of the chronic pain you experience while encouraging better healing and recovery.

Rest & Relaxation

Anxiety & Stress Management

Massage therapy can be an extremely effective way to promote feelings of rest and relaxation. In addition to seeing a massage therapist for treatment of a condition, many people also experience benefits of a soothing massage to support their mental wellness. A therapeutic massage is a relaxing experience where you can unwind and carve out time to look after yourself. Your massage therapist will use smooth, flowing movements that help to relax your body and mind. This type of treatment can reduce muscle tension, improve your sleep, and reduce pain in the back or neck felt from work or everyday tasks. 

Massage therapy can also be used to help manage feelings of stress and anxiety. It has been shown that this type of treatment can greatly reduce these symptoms by calming the nervous system and putting the body into the parasympathetic, or “rest and digest”, state. Along with improving nervous system activity, massage therapy can improve blood circulation, decrease your stress hormones, and increase your “feel good” hormones such as serotonin and dopamine. If you often feel stressed or anxious from your everyday life, visiting a massage therapist can be the exact type of care you need to unwind and start feeling better.

Women’s Health – Pre and Post Natal Care

There are many changes a woman’s body goes through while she is pregnant, many of which can cause uncomfortable symptoms and pain throughout the body. Back pain is extremely common as well as leg pain, foot pain, and general aches and muscle soreness. A soothing massage can be an excellent form of prenatal care that helps reduce these symptoms and promote feelings of relief. Before treatment, it’s important that you advise your massage therapist that you are pregnant as this will influence their treatment approach. Our skilled team members will seek to understand how far along you are in your pregnancy and the symptoms you are experiencing to provide you with the most restorative experience possible. 

Massage therapy can also be an enjoyable rehab treatment for mothers after they give birth. Aches and body pains often persist after having a baby, and many new moms may experience physical or emotional stress from caring for a newborn. A massage can help soothe any discomfort in the body and give you a chance to unwind and relax. Our massage therapists will carefully seek to understand your needs for pre or post natal care and support you through every stage of your motherhood journey.

Sports Massage

At HealthOne, we have patients who come from a variety of sports and exercise backgrounds. From recreational players to professional athletes, anyone who participates in physical activity can benefit from the therapeutic benefits of a sports massage. Massage can be extremely impactful in treating muscle tension or spasms, and if you suffer from a sports injury, a massage can be a useful way to reduce swelling, pain and inflammation. These benefits are due to the fact that the variety of techniques used by massage therapists provide targeted relief to the strained muscles, allowing an increase in blood flow and a gentle stretching of the tense tissues.  

We also recommend sports massages to patients to help them prevent injuries from happening in the future. Stretching is an important component of maintaining a healthy and capable body, and massage therapy is a great way to loosen your muscles and avoid tension and pain before they arise. HealthOne also has a sports medicine doctor at our Medical & Walk-In clinic who offers specialized treatments that can also help your sports-related performance, including: 

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): injections that are created using the patient’s own blood. PRP injections support the body’s natural repair process.  

Cortisone Injections: can be used to decrease the symptoms of orthopedic conditions including arthritis, tendinopathies, and bursitis. Cortisone injections help by reducing inflammation around injured tissues. 

Viscosupplementation: can be used to treat osteoarthritis by using an injection of a hyaluronic acid solution. It can increase the cushioning and lubrication of osteoarthritic synovial, or joint, fluid.

Fitness – Strengthening, Conditioning, Mobility

Whether you are an experienced athlete or starting a new fitness routine, massage therapy can help you move better and with less pain. Massage therapists use a variety of hands-on techniques to stretch, move, and apply pressure to the muscles of your body in specific ways. This can help you achieve your strengthening, conditioning, and/or mobility goals with ease. 

In order to grow stronger muscles, you must keep them healthy and flexible. At-home stretching is a good way to achieve this, but additional care from a rehab professional can take your body’s abilities to the next level. Regularly visiting a massage therapist can keep your muscles working properly and reduce any tension or areas of concern as they develop. People with goals of improving their flexibility and mobility can also benefit from massage therapy treatment. 

At HealthOne, we also offer Functional Mobility Assessments (FMA) which are designed to give you a better understanding of your body’s physical abilities and limitations as they relate to exercise. Our registered massage therapists may refer you to another rehab practitioner, such as our physiotherapist or kinesiologist, if you wish to complete an FMA and learn more about your body. 

Benefits  

  • + Build stronger muscles 
  • + Improve your endurance 
  • + Increase your flexibility 
  • + Expert guidance about exercise 
  • + Learn about the areas you can improve

Pre and Post Surgery Rehabilitation

At HealthOne, we understand that undergoing a medical operation can be a stress-inducing experience. This is why we recommend massage therapy as part of your pre-surgery care approach. The relaxing, restorative motions performed during a therapeutic massage can have immense benefits on your mental wellbeing and help to reduce stress and anxiety. It has even been shown that a massage can reduce the levels of stress-inducing hormones in the body and boost your immunity. Regardless of the type of operation you undergo, having a strong, healthy body and immune system will increase the chances of your procedure going smoothly.  

There are also many reasons why you may benefit from a therapeutic massage after your operation. Massage therapy techniques can help speed up the healing process and reduce how much scar tissue develops. Along with this, it can effectively reduce how much pain you feel throughout your recovery and encourage a healthier circulation of blood flow in the body. We encourage you to speak with your massage therapist about any upcoming surgeries you have, or any surgeries you may be recovering from, prior to your treatment. They will discuss the best treatment approach with you to support your body and functioning.
