What are the benefits of it?

Soft tissue massage therapy treatment addresses aches, pains, and injuries suffered by the soft tissues of the body, such as tendons, ligaments and muscles. A wide variety of medical conditions can be alleviated with soft tissue massage therapy treatment. It can also enhance muscle performance, your circulatory system, joints and your immune system, not to mention that when your session is complete, you will leave in a very relaxed state of mind.

Benefits of Soft Tissue Massage

Here are just a few of the ways soft tissue massage therapy treatment can make a difference:

  • Relieve muscle tension and relax muscles
  • Increase blood circulation and lymph flow
  • Improve healing time of strained ligaments and muscle tissue
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Reduce heart rate
  • Improve range of motion and joint flexibility
  • Increase endorphins
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Decrease muscle spasms
  • Improve oxygen flow

Maria Murchie, RMT, resident of Hamilton, Ontario, always knew she wanted to be in the health field, however at a young age she learned that she had a blood phobia, so she was forced to rethink her nursing career. Massage seemed to be a hemoglobin free alternative and it has been for the last 6 years.
 
A graduate of the Canadian Therapeutic College 2004, and a member of the Canadian Massage Therapists of Ontario since 2005, Maria enjoys finding new therapies and new places to travel, to become more educated in the massage therapy field. Just recently Maria travelled to St. Petersburg, Florida to educate herself on the BAMBOO FUSION massage, and is excited to bring this latest therapy to her clients in Canada.
