Massage Therapy | Vancouver, BC | Killian Chiropractic

Registered Massage Therapy is a respected health care profession in British Columbia. Governed by the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia (CMTBC), Registered Massage Therapists (RMT) practice within the Health Care Professions Act and provide hands-on treatments to assist in the achievement and maintenance of optimal health.

Benefits of massage:

Registered Massage Therapy is ideal for non-invasive treatments of the body in regards to muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and the spine. These structures can be affected in many ways such as poor posture, poor workplace ergonomics, lack of proper movement, weak muscles, sports injuries, or motor vehicle accidents. Massage therapy can help to decrease pain, decrease muscle tension, help with postural imbalances, aid in the proper alignment and movement of joints, increase circulation, and improve the recovery of soft tissue injuries.

Indirectly, massage also contributes to the health of the nervous system, cardiovascular system, endocrine system, immune system, and digestive system by affecting the body’s hormones and neurotransmitters. An example of this would be the feeling of calm and deep relaxation following a massage. This occurs because during a massage endorphins are released from the brain which in turn gives us a feeling of well being. Studies also indicate that massage treatments can help with decreasing the stress hormones adrenaline, cortisol, and norepinephrine, all three of which have been shown when in high numbers to impair the immune system as well as increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Other indirect benefits of massage include reduced anxiety and depression.
