Specialized massage therapist

To meet the growing and increasingly specific needs of the clientele, massage therapy has become highly specialized over the years. More than just a way to relax, massage therapy is now an essential solution in reducing pain, muscle and joint tension as well as the effects of stress on the body.

Specialized massage therapists have completed at least 1,000 hours of academic training in massage therapy, which allows them to work on the body’s posture by relaxing muscular tension, increase joint mobility and range of motion, activate blood and lymphatic circulation and eliminate toxins to improve the overall health of their clients. These professionals master at least two of the following massage techniques that are recognized by the Réseau des massothérapeutes professionnels du Québec:

Training

A specialized massage therapist’s training also includes continuing education techniques, which must be recognized by the Association. These techniques allow the therapists to offer services that are tailored to the needs of their customers. For example, the prenatal massages reduces the pain caused by the physical transformations of pregnancy; sports massages, which are very popular among athletes, prevent injuries and reduce pain; lymphatic draining detoxifies the body and strengthens the immune system through the stimulation of the body’s lymphatic flow, which is perfect for treating edema and vascular conditions.

If to want to receive a specialized care, call one of The Réseau’s specialized massage therapist.
