Massage Therapy for the Halifax Area
Massage therapy is a very effective way to treat many physical ailments, including back pain, whiplash, sciatica and more. From our Halifax-area clinics in Bedford, Dartmouth and Timberlea, Nova Physiotherapy has been providing massage therapy to clients since 2004.
Massage Therapy is the manipulation of the body's soft tissues to achieve a desired therapeutic response. It enhances the function of joints and muscles, improves blood and lymph circulation, and helps relieve stress and pain.
Massage Therapy is an effective treatment for:
- headaches, migraine
- low back pain
- repetitive strain injuries
- muscle spasm
- temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ)
- frozen shoulder
What to expect from your massage therapy sessions:
Initial treatment is typically one hour and involves a detailed physical assessment, intake of medical history and a "hands-on" treatment to determine your tissue health. Later visits can be 30 or 40 minutes, or perhaps as long as 90 minutes, depending on what treatment is agreed upon by you and your therapist.
The appropriate removal of clothing will be discussed by your therapist. During the course of the treatment, you will be covered by a sheet and the only uncovered area will be where the therapist is treating at any given moment.
Please give us a call or drop into one of our Halifax area massage therapy clinics!
