For the general population, I’ll just go ahead and say, yes. Massage Therapy isn’t just for professional athletes or something you get at the spa with cucumber slices over your eyes (although those are both great options). Massage Therapy can be for anything from the little aches and pains you get day to day, to chronic neck pain and headaches from a car accident you were in three years ago.
Do you work at the computer all day? Are your wrists, neck, and low back bothering you persistently? Massage can help.
Do you spend a significant amount of time in your vehicle commuting? This can cause muscle imbalances and adhesions that can lead to low back and hip pain. Massage can help.
Did you just spend hours in a chair at the dentist getting a couple of fillings and your face, head and neck have been bothering you since? You guessed it, massage can help.
Massage Therapy is very useful for treating everything from neuropathies such as carpal tunnel and thoracic outlet syndromes – to TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction. In some cases, massage can be a great alternative for conditions that are typically treated with surgical procedures which may not resolve the main issue, and can potentially lead to other complications.
The constant strain we put on our bodies throughout the course of a day or week can add up quickly and result in discomfort. Massage Therapy is a great way to try and alleviate any issues you may be having. If you’re experiencing any aches and pains daily or even once in awhile, call the clinic at (613) 454-1239 or make an appointment online at www.ocsiclinic.ca and we will work together to get you back to feeling your best!
