Massage and Manual Therapy
Massage is the manipulating of superficial and deeper
layers of muscle, and connective tissue using various
techniques, to enhance function, reduce spasm,
reduce pain, aid in the healing process, relieve stress,
improve blood flow, reduce swelling, promote
relaxation and well-being.
Physiotherapists will always ask about your medical history before performing any massage due to contraindications. These include deep vein thrombosis, bleeding disorders or taking blood thinners such as Warfarin, damaged blood vessels, weakened bones from cancer, osteoporosis, or fractures, bruising and fever.
