Registered Massage Therapy

The healthcare profession of Registered Massage Therapy (RMT) is more advanced than typical body work or relaxation massage. It is a common misconception that massage therapy is only helpful for stress relief. However, there are registered massage therapy (RMT) professionals who work with stress-related issues, but they represent only a small percentage of treatments.

The main aim of massage therapies is to enhance the health of soft tissues and joints by manually manipulating soft tissue, connective tissue, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, combined with therapeutic exercises. The field employs various evidence-based techniques aiming to alleviate pain, expedite injury healing, and enhance movement capabilities.

Surrey boasts a thriving and expanding domain of registered massage therapy services, emphasizing pain management, injury rehabilitation, and movement optimization. The Compassion Centre: Wellness, Physio & Rehab is particularly renowned for its expertise in these areas within the industry.

Restoring Muscles to Optimal Health: Massage Therapy Techniques and Benefits

Our massage therapy treatments aim to restore muscles to their optimal length, strength, and balance. Whether the cause of pain is muscular or a secondary reaction to trauma, muscles tend to react by protecting and guarding the affected area.

By reducing muscle pain, we allow the body to relax and recuperate. Our massage therapists utilize several techniques, including deep tissue massage, cross-fiber massage, myofascial/trigger point release, muscle attachment release, stretch massage, neuromuscular therapy, and craniosacral therapy. These massage therapy treatments can be applied through clothing or over bare skin using lotions.

Benefits Of Massage Therapy

Deep Tissue Massages

A deep tissue massage can be beneficial if you suffer from chronic pain or sports injury. Many people require this type of massage, especially after sports activities. It is an effective way to relieve pain quickly, and a skilled massage therapist can perform it. Those with chronic pain also prefer this type of massage. Patients who undergo this massage for a short duration feel significant relief and often opt for this treatment.

Deep Tissue Massage Features:

Deep tissue massage is a specialized massage targeting the deep layers of muscle tissue. This treatment is performed by our massage therapist who intervenes in the muscle tissues and surrounding tissue. It is an excellent way to relax, especially for athletes or those in physically demanding jobs. It differs from standard massage techniques because it targets muscles close to the skeleton rather than the outer surface.

Sports Massage Therapy

Sports massage is often associated with athletes but can benefit anyone physically tired or engaged in any activity during the day. Sports massage therapy can also be helpful for people with disabilities. However, if you have a fever, wound, or severe illness, you must talk to your massage therapist at The Compassion Centre about it before getting a sports massage, as our therapists can advise you on what is best for your health.

Regular massage therapy can be highly beneficial if you constantly push your body physically. Our massage therapists can help you decide how often you should receive massages, depending on your training frequency. It would help if you did not reduce the frequency of your visits to massage therapy sessions, as this may affect your progress.

After a sports massage, you may experience some soreness or tiredness, but this is normal. To help ease any discomfort, it is advisable to take a shower and relax after your massage. It would also help if you could avoid heavy meals and alcohol for a few hours after the massage and drink plenty of water. If you have any questions or concerns, you can always ask your massage therapist at The Compassion Centre.

Pre Natal Massage Therapy

Pre natal massage therapy is a specialized form of therapeutic massage tailored specifically for expectant mothers. This type of massage is designed to alleviate the various bodily discomforts associated with pregnancy, such as back pain, swollen joints, and muscle tension. By using gentle techniques and avoiding pressure points that could potentially induce labor, pre natal massage helps improve circulation, reduce stress, and promote overall relaxation.

Utilizing bolsters and cushions to ensure the mother’s comfort, therapists create a safe and soothing environment. Regular sessions of pre natal massage can contribute to both the physical and emotional well-being of the mother, making it an invaluable component of prenatal care.
