Massage Therapy Act 1991, c. 27, s. 3.

Established as a clinically oriented health option, Massage Therapy is used to relieve or alleviate discomfort associated with everyday stress, muscular overuse, treat chronic and acute pain and aid in the maintenance of overall health and quality of life. Treatments can be restorative or preventative.

Massage Therapy is most beneficial when administered over a series of restorative treatments, followed by maintenance and preventative treatments. In the case of an accident involving trauma and injury, Massage Therapy can aid in and help speed the healing process if employed early enough.

Massage Therapy treatments can benefit people of all ages by helping to IMPROVE circulation, immune system function, posture, joint mobility and flexibility, and REDUCE chronic or acute pain, depression/anxiety, muscle tension and stress.
