Massage therapy is the treatment of the body’s soft tissues. Muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joints are all included. A Registered Massage Therapist can assist in the relief of soft tissue discomfort caused by everyday and work-related stressors, muscle overexertion, and many chronic pain issues. This might be as a result of a recent injury or as part of a continuous maintenance and wellness program to help you cope with the everyday stresses of life and physical exercise.
Regular massage therapy treatments from a Registered Massage Therapist can provide enormous advantages. Whether you want to unwind, relieve muscular tension, or find relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage may improve your entire mental and physical well-being, as well as your quality of life.
We at Joint Reaction Health Center believe in a collaborative or “Team approach!” Massage therapy is not an afterthought in this case, but rather an integral part of the solution, with your physiotherapist and massage therapist working together to give the best treatment plan to guarantee you achieve your ultimate objective of health and well-being.

Massage treatment given during pregnancy has been shown in studies to lower anxiety, lessen symptoms of depression, relieve muscular aches and joint pains, and enhance birth outcomes and baby health. Massage treatment addresses various requirements through various approaches, one of which is Swedish Massage, which seeks to relieve muscular tension and promote lymphatic and blood circulation by applying light pressure to the body’s muscle groups. Swedish massage is the most often used prenatal massage technique because it addresses many of the common discomforts related with the skeletal and circulatory alterations caused by pregnancy hormone shifts.
Your massage therapist at Joint Reaction Health Center will go through a number of tests and explain their importance to your condition. These evaluation findings will be incorporated into the treatment plan, and a decision will be made as to whether or not you will require “hands on” therapy. In the massage world, this “hands on” technique is known as manual therapy.
This manual therapy and more “hands on” treatment is at the heart of our approach and will guarantee you regain your maximum health and fitness.
Although OHIP does not cover massage therapy, practically all extended health care plans do.
A doctor’s referral is not required to see a massage therapist. However, if you have an extended health care plan, your insurer may demand a doctor’s reference before paying for massage therapy services. This is why you should seek a recommendation before submitting your claim for reimbursement.
Your first massage session will be one hour long, and future appointments will be 30, 60, or 90 minutes long, with a payment based on the length of treatment.
We understand that life is hectic, and we are delighted to assist you in making your life more joyful while allowing you to focus on just getting well.
