Therapeutic massage may be chosen as a stand-alone treatment, or in combination with other services such as chiropractic and physiotherapy. This service involves a variety of hands-on techniques focused on treating the specific area of injury or pain. The therapist will use their clinical expertise to choose appropriate techniques based on a client’s impairments, pain levels, and therapeutic goals.
