What's is Massage Therapy ?​

Massage therapy is the manual treatment of the soft tissues of the body, including: muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and joints. Massage therapy helps alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions. Various massage therapy techniques are used to enhance function, aid in the healing process, and promote relaxation and well-being.
At Mahalo Massage Therapy and Wellness, all of our RMT’s are 3000-hour certified and specialize in therapeutic massage. Manual lymphatic drainage, neuromuscular and orthopedic, relaxation, and cupping massage is also offered. Massage therapy is a great adjunctive treatment to chiropractic and physiotherapy, and pain relief is optimized for the patient when these therapies are used in combination.

Massage Can Improve Health and Wellness 

Massage therapy can improve health and wellness through its effects on the physical, mental and social well-being of an individual. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), "Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."1 With this in mind, it would be appropriate to state that anything that positively impacts the physical, mental and social well-being of an individual as well as possibly decreasing incidence of disease would improve health.

Research is showing us that massage therapy can help in varying populations with:

- Anxiety 
- Depression 
- Boosting immune function 
- Lowering blood pressure
- Heart rate
- Decreasing pain 
- Range of motion
- Quality of sleep 
- Improving joint mobility. 
- Improving circulation. 
- Improving lymphatic drainage. 
- Reducing muscular tension. 

Massage Therapy can be a Valuable Component of a Wellness Program ! 

Over the last five to ten years, the Canadian public has become aware of the importance of health improvement and disease prevention. The concept of this trend has been coined as “wellness.” Wellness includes the elements of enhanced quality of life, and improved physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. A wellness program is a multidisciplinary approach to life.

There is much research that validates that massage therapy is an important component of a wellness program:

- Massage has been shown to increase range of motion and flexibility as well as to improve measures of anxiety, depression, vitality, and perceived stress.
- It can also increase feelings of wellness, calm, relaxation, and a sense of belonging.
