Registered Massage Therapy (RMT)
Many aches and pains are the result of overused and abused muscle tissue. Muscle that is subjected to stress and strain over time starts to breakdown at the cellular level. Tissue breakdown leads to the development of scar tissue or excessive collagen formation, binding muscle fibres together.Normal suppleness is replaced by rigid, taut bands, rippled with “knots” and resulting in pain.
Registered Massage Therapy (RMT) has several physiological effects, including:
Elimination of trigger points, or painful knots that develop in overworked muscle
Increased blood flow to tissues
Accelerated tissue healing due to increased blood flow and oxygen delivery
Increased rate of toxin removal, including lactic acid
Depletion of scar tissue or excessive collagen build-up between muscle fibres
Lowered risk of muscle and tendon injury
Restored strength/Increased force production of muscle
