REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPY
Is there anything more satisfying than a good massage? Someone working away all those aches, pains, stressors and worries in an hour (or an hour and a half) so that you walk out of the treatment room feeling like a ball of blubber? Is there anything more to look forward to than having a few minutes of time?
At Cornerstone Naturopathic we believe that your best health is designed with a team of people who place your needs at the front of their minds. Our Registered Massage Therapists work hard to focus on your pain; whether it be low-grade, due to your job (hello working at a desk or teaching all day!) or from that weekend race or ski hill.
We believe in our Four Cornerstones of Good Health; Sleep, Nutrition, Movement and Happiness. Massage Therapy, and a Registered Massage Therapist who understands how to manipulate the body, can support those Cornerstones of Health. Our Licensed and Registered Massage Therapists focus on manipulating the soft tissues of the body, specifically the muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and joints. This work increases the blood flow to muscles and joints; decreasing pain, increasing repair of damaged muscles from injury or overuse and relaxing the muscles. Massage Therapy may even reduce blood pressure due to its sedative, calming effect.
Can I Receive A Massage While Pregnant?
Most definitely. Not only is massage a helpful addition to pregnancy, especially during the third trimester as ligaments become more lax, it is also very safe. Our Registered Massage Therapists are trained in pregnancy massage and our clinic is equipped with a pregnancy massage pillow, which is designed to help support the growing belly of mom!
Will A Massage Help With Reducing My Pain?
There have been quite a few research papers specifically showing that massage therapy reduces something known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are molecules that are found in high amounts during acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term) pain. This doesn’t only apply to injuries or sore muscles, it can also apply to menstrual or period related pain. The best time to come in for a massage to help reduce your period pain is generally 3 days before, or during the first 2 days of your period.
