Can Massage Therapy enhance recovery?

Massage therapy manipulates the soft tissues of the body to provide relief from tension, stress, and pain. In addition to relaxing muscles and loosening joints, massage stimulates blood circulation and helps to recharge the lymphatic system.

How does it work?

The massage techniques practiced at Bragg Creek Physiotherapy address injury, promote recovery, and assist with stress management.

Therapeutic massage assists in recovering from injury by helping to desensitize the nervous system, increase blood flow and stimulate the lymphatic system to encourage optimal healing.

Sports massage helps promote recovery from high exercise loads so you can achieve your next training goal.

Relaxation massage provides relief from stress. Be it from a hectic lifestyle, poor ergonomics at your workstation, persistent pain or anything in between, stress can wreak havoc on your mental and physical health. Relaxation massage helps restore equilibrium, eases pain, and encourages the vitality you need to tackle life’s challenges.
