Massage Therapy in Richmond Hill

Patient getting massageYou may have heard about the power of human touch — including the power to help the body heal. One healing technique that hinges on the manual treatment of tissues is massage therapy. Different types of massage therapy have special benefits for the treatment of different conditions, particularly in partnership with a chiropractic adjustment.

Here at Spinalcare Chiropractic Clinic, we offer this form of care alongside our other all-natural healing modalities. You’re welcome to schedule a massage all by itself, or you can utilize a combination of our services to get the best result.

The Many Forms of Massage Therapy

If you have ever had a soothing massage at a health spa, you most likely enjoyed Swedish massage. This type of massage uses relatively light strokes to enhance blood flow to the skin and relax superficial muscle groups. Swedish massage can help your body heal more quickly from an injury, get rid of inflammatory pain and swelling, and provide some much-needed muscle relaxation.

But Swedish massage is only one of the available techniques we can employ to improve your health and comfort. A more aggressive technique called deep tissue massage penetrates to the deeper muscle groups, breaking up adhesions (scar tissue) and other problems that prevent pain-free motion.

Trigger point therapy is an additional type of massage that focuses on releasing individual muscle knots, or trigger points, that relay pain signals to other areas of the body. Prenatal massage uses a combination of gentle techniques and a specially-constructed table to help pregnant patients enjoy safe, effective relief from their aches and pains. Sports massage aims to help you loosen or rehabilitate the muscles you use the most in your chosen sport.

No matter what your needs are, when you get a massage Richmond Hill, our therapists can customize a treatment for you.

Massage therapy has many variants that make it a powerful treatment tool for a wide range of health challenges. Our chiropractor, Dr. Chan, may recommend massage for issues such as :

  • Insomnia
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Acute or chronic strains and sprains
  • Chronic headaches

  • TMJ
  • Poor lymphatic drainage or immune function
  • Back pain

It’s no coincidence that many of the same conditions improved by massage therapy can also be treated with chiropractic care. In fact, chiropractic adjustment and massage make an especially powerful combination. That’s because muscles relaxed by massage are more receptive to spinal and extremity adjustments, which makes it easier for the body to accept the changes.

At our clinic, you can choose to have chiropractic and massage therapy, which will work hand-in-glove to help your body heal.

What makes massage at your clinic different than anywhere else?

We focus on your clinical needs rather than an overall, general goal such as relaxation. When you’re in pain or having chronic problems, you need a more therapeutic approach. That’s exactly what we offer to you.
Do I have to see the chiropractor first?

No and yes! We encourage you to take advantage of having multiple practitioners under one roof. Since all of our therapists are well trained and licensed to practice in Ontario, they are equipped professionally to address your musculoskeletal needs. However, If you see Dr. Chan before a massage, he can gather medical data that will be passed onto your massage therapist. They’ll have a roadmap to follow of exactly what needs to be done for a more effective and efficient massage.
Do I need to do anything special to prepare for my massage?

Dress comfortably when preparing for your appointment. You’ll spend about 5-10 minutes being assessed and going over informed consent. Then, your massage will begin. At the end, your massage therapists can make any recommendations you’d like about how often to return for a massage.
