Learn about Massage SW Calgary. Let’s start with the basics.  What is Massage Therapy?

Massage is a hands on practice where the therapist manipulates your soft tissue (think muscles and fascia). This is done to decrease tension, increase circulation, and promote general well being.  This type of therapy encompasses an extensive range of treatments for many ailments. Whether you want a relaxing massage or need something a little more intense for an old injury. Massage has plenty of benefits. Massage is a very safe therapy that can provide you with some immediate relief.

However it can also be used as a complement to other therapies. A combination of osteopathic, physiotherapy, acupuncture, and massage therapy treatments can benefit you if you have a more complicated injury or condition.
