Massage Therapy

Calgary Massage Therapy by The Healing Bridge

Massage therapy performed by a professional Registered Massage Therapist (“RMT”) is the manipulation of soft tissue with anatomy, physiology and pathology in mind.

A massage with one of our Calgary massage therapists typically begins with a light, steady touch followed by broad, flowing strokes to begin calming the nervous system and releasing tension in superficial muscles. Gradually, your massage therapist works more deeply to relax specific areas.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

  • Maintains health and well-being for mind and body
  • Releases chronic tension and pain in muscles
  • Increases flexibility in joints
  • Improves circulation in the body including hands and feet
  • Helps decrease insomnia
  • Combats stress

Your First Visit with The Healing Bridge Calgary RMT

It is helpful to arrive roughly 10 minutes before your first appointment with your Healing Bridge Calgary RMT, as you will be asked to submit a general health history form and waiver form. Your massage therapist will then go over your health history with you to ensure massage is right for you and how to best treat your symptoms.

The Healing Bridge Calgary Massage Therapy Environment

Our massages are performed on a table specifically designed for stability and comfort. The room will be warm and quiet, often with soft music to set a relaxing mood.

Your massage therapist will use a light hypoallergenic oil or lotion to ease friction, which is good for your skin and absorbs well.

Massage Therapy Pain

Communication between you and your registered massage therapist is essential as each individual has a different preference in pressure. Please inform your therapist if you feel there is too much pressure or not enough.

Following your massage, you may experience temporary discomfort for 1-2 days due to tight or overused muscles being manipulated. This discomfort will not return with regular massage therapy.

Attire for Massage Therapy

For a full body massage, you may choose to undress completely or to wear underwear, depending on your level of comfort. You are covered at all times with a sheet and/or towels, except for the area being worked on.

Craniosacral Therapy in Calgary

Craniosacral therapy uses similar techniques as traditional massage therapy, but with an emphasis on the nerves and muscles of the cranium.┬áTo do this, a craniosacral therapy practitioner applies light touches to a patient’s skull, face, spine and pelvis.

Foot Massage in Calgary

Some of our Calgary RMT clients prefer to have their massage therapy focused specifically on their feet. If you are interested in only having a foot massage please speak with your massage therapist to discuss your needs and any symptoms you may be experiencing.

Prenatal Massage in Calgary

Prenatal massage therapy aids in the prevention of pain and tension in neck, shoulder, hip, and back muscles, which are stressed and overused during pregnancy and therefore do not receive adequate blood flow, nutrients, and oxygen.

Benefits of Prenatal Massage Therapy

From the first time I entered the clinic almost 10 years ago, I was put at ease by the smiles and friendly conversation from the awesome staff and other patients. The general warmth of the environment created by the relaxing colors and pleasant aromas all helped to lessen my apprehensions.
