October 26-Nov 1st, 2020 is Massage Therapy Awareness Week. Massage therapy is a clinically-oriented health care option that can provide relief from the musculoskeletal pain and discomfort that can come from every day activities, such as sitting too much, pushing too hard at your favourite sport, or carrying around a heavy bag. Massage therapy is a regulated health profession in Ontario and massage therapy should only be performed by a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). All Ontarians can visit an RMT of their choice, without prescription or referral.
Massage therapy has proven to be beneficial for people with a wide variety of common conditions, and massage therapists are an important part of your healthcare team. Research shows that massage therapy is a great option for decreasing the physical symptoms of stress and anxiety, as well as for decreasing musculoskeletal pain, augmenting physical function and improving overall health.
We would like to take this chance to thank all Massage Therapists for helping patients return to their best physical fitness. Our Massage Therapists at We-Fix-U are here with you every step of the way towards recovery.
