This is probably the most popular and most requested type of massage anywhere. It uses pressure to soothe the muscles and gives a calming effect. This is best for people who are stressed and exhausted after a long day at work. This massage delivers just the right amount of pressure that will relax you, without adding to your existing pain. You may request the registered massage therapist or RMT to massage you based on your body’s requirement.

Swelling, though extremely frustrating, is not unusual; for pregnant women. This is because to help sustain the needs of the baby, the body has to produce roughly 50% more blood and fluid. This condition, called edema, occurs on the face, neck, and hands, but it is mostly noticeable on the lower extremities, which absorb more of the extra pressure. According to an article by Today’s Parent, the growing uterus begins to put a significant amount of pressure on the pelvic veins and vena cava (the vein the right side of the body that transports blood from the feet back to the heart), to the point of impairing the proper return of blood to the heart. As a result, more blood tends to be retained below the knees, explaining the excessive leg puffiness. You RMT in Vancouver may help in managing this, though, with a series of massage sessions to re-establish healthy blood circulation.
With the hustle and bustle of daily work for an established professional, it's quite easy to leave out a chance to relax. As numerous studies have shown, however, relaxation is key to good health. Those who commute to downtown Vancouver every day know it is a great place to work, but winding down from that work is just one part of a happy, healthy and well-rounded life. Spending time out in nature and enjoying our beautiful area is so much easier when a 'borderline space' is made between work and play. Whether you are interested in hiking, running, swimming or just getting out for a breath of fresh air on the weekend, a borderline space is essential. What is a borderline space? Well, it is the time you spend winding down between your workday and your time off. A borderline space is often your best exit from the work week.

A popular field in alternative medicine, massage therapy is known as an effective pain reliever, particularly for those suffering from chronic lower back pain. In Canada, massage therapy programs are taught in a standard curriculum of 2200-3000-hour programs regulated by the Massage Therapy Alliance of Canada (MTAC) excluding the provinces of Ontario, British Columbia (BC), Labrador and Newfoundland, which have their own massage therapy colleges that supervise licensed practitioners within their areas. Among these four provinces, BC and Ontario are the pioneers in having registered massage therapists (RMT) governed by their own healthcare legislation.

Nothing beats the exhilarating feeling that comes with playing sports. Sometimes, however, the rush it gives may keep athletes from recognizing injury, or even if they do, they keep playing so as not to pass up a chance for victory. Yes, a determined mindset may be the main ingredient for victory but it’s also important to note that the body has its limits too. One of the top sports-related injuries is muscular strain resulting from overuse. According to the Pacific College of Medicine, heavily-used muscles tend to lose their ability to relax. The tightening and loss of flexibility is accompanied by soreness and muscle tears that eventually lead to stress fractures, a case when the muscle becomes overly fatigued and is no longer able to tolerate shock. The tight muscles also restrict blood flow, causing pain. A Vancouver RMT recommends a regular sports massage as an excellent way for athletes to fight the debilitating effects of strenuous exercises after a tough training session.

It’s no secret that massage therapy plays an important role in professional sports. Massages help tense and tired muscles relax, which aids in preventing overuse injuries from occurring. Additionally, massages can improve the range of motion of joints for better flexibility and mobility. If you regularly hit the gym or play sports, seeing a massage therapist often can help you stay in top form. These are only three of the many health benefits researchers have associated with massage therapy. If you plan on making massages a regular part of your life, be sure to look for an established practice, like Vancity Massage Therapy, that has a recognised Vancouver RMT. These professionals have undergone extensive training to ensure that you maximise the benefits of massage therapy.
