The safety and security of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. While the physical nature of massages makes social distancing difficult. we’ve put into place several new measures so that our Registered Massage Therapists can minimize risk while providing this key service. These changes include pre-appointment health screenings, social distancing, protective equipment (including masks), frequent cleaning and disinfection of high-touch surfaces and more.
While you should expect a slightly different experience at the clinic, the new rules are simple and easy to follow and allow Massage Therapists to provide the care our patients require. You can read more about the Lifemark S.A.F.E.R approach here.
New rules, same benefits
Though there are new rules in place, the positive benefits of massage therapy are still the same. Stress takes a toll on our bodies. Massage can help ease that stress, and treat acute and chronic conditions, including back pain, sports injuries, arthritis, and more. Massage promotes healing and can speed up recovery time if you’ve been injured - and it can feel great.
Massage therapy maintains and improves physical function in the body by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Massaging soft tissues can relieve pain, improve circulation and lymphatic flow, decrease heart rate and promote relaxation and pain reduction.
Massage is also great for those focussed on prevention, as it can help avoid built-up tension and prevent pain or dysfunction. Massage can provide tremendous relief from pain on its own or can be integrated as part of a comprehensive treatment plan, serving to complement a physiotherapy or rehabilitation program.
It’s very effective – many people notice a difference immediately.
