Manual Therapy Designed for You
Registered Massage Therapy
Using oils on the skin, a massage therapy session can range from very gentle to quite deep depending on your request and how your body responds.
This style of bodywork is commonly used to relax and rejuvenate tired, sore muscles as well as joints and for general aches and pains.
RMT Acupuncture focuses on muscles, joints and the soft tissues of the body. Sometimes Sue uses this modality in combination with massage, shiatsu, craniosacral therapy or other soft tissue approaches. It can be used alone as long as the concern falls within the scope of practice of massage therapy.
From gentle soothing compressions to specific deep techniques, shiatsu addresses tension through lean on pressure.
Traditionally the patient is clothed but between the sheets works just fine, as long as there is a cloth barrier between patient and therapist. To work the body, the therapist leans into the patient with their thumbs, palms, forearms and sometimes knees, paying close attention to the body's response to adjust the technique as needed.
The specific nature of this technique can help the RMT pinpoint tension and deliver effective relief to nagging issues not always helped by other modalities.
