Registered Massage Therapy
Massage Therapy: Enhancing Physical Function and Relieving Pain
Welcome to Sinclair Sports Medical Center, where we offer professional registered massage therapy services that enhance physical function, relieve pain, and promote overall well-being. Our team of dedicated registered massage therapists (RMTs) is committed to providing personalized care and helping you get back to doing what you love. Let’s explore the benefits of massage therapy and what you can expect during your visit.
Understanding Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is a regulated healthcare option that goes beyond relaxation. It is a non-sexual practice aimed at preventing, maintaining, regulating, and augmenting the body’s physical function while providing pain relief. Our registered massage therapists specialize in manipulating the soft tissues and joints of the body to address discomfort caused by stress, muscular overuse, and chronic pain syndromes. Whether you’re an athlete, office worker, or experiencing an injury, our RMTs can cater to your specific needs and contribute to your overall well-being.
The Role of Registered Massage Therapists
Registered massage therapists play a vital role in your journey to wellness. Here are some key facts about RMTs:
- Massage therapy is a regulated health profession ensuring a high standard of care.
- RMTs complete a comprehensive 2-3 year diploma program from a recognized massage therapy school, equipping them with in-depth knowledge and skills.
- In Ontario, RMTs must be registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario to use the title “massage therapist” or “registered massage therapist.”
- Our therapists participate in a Quality Assurance Program to maintain professionalism and ensure the highest level of patient care.
- Each therapist brings unique techniques and expertise to provide individualized care based on their experience and training.
Your First Massage Therapy Appointment
At Sinclair Sports Medical Center, we prioritize your comfort and confidence throughout your massage therapy journey. Before your first visit, we will email you an intake form. This form lets us gather important information about your health history, past massage experiences, and specific concerns. Your registered massage therapist will review this form before your arrival, enabling them to tailor the session to your needs effectively.
Assessment & Getting Started
When you arrive at our clinic, our friendly front desk staff will greet you and inform your massage therapist of your arrival. Your RMT will welcome and escort you to a private massage room. In this tranquil environment, you will have the opportunity to discuss any physical issues you are currently experiencing and communicate your massage preferences. If your therapist believes that a medical condition requires attention from a doctor, they will provide appropriate guidance. In case of any injuries, your therapist may suggest rescheduling your appointment to ensure your well-being.
Next, your massage therapist will step out of the room, allowing you to disrobe and get comfortable on the massage table. Rest assured that your modesty is respected, as we provide draping to ensure your privacy. Please inform your therapist upon arrival if you prefer to receive your massage without disrobing.
As you await your therapist’s return, take a moment to relax and breathe deeply. Your therapist will gently knock on the door before re-entering the room, ensuring you are ready to begin the session.
Your Massage Experience
Throughout the massage, your comfort and satisfaction are of utmost importance. Feel free to provide feedback to your therapist regarding the pressure, whether you prefer a lighter or deeper touch. Your session will be fully tailored to your needs and well-being. You have the option to engage in conversation during the massage, or if you prefer silence or even doze off, that’s perfectly acceptable too!
After Your Massage
Once your massage is complete, your therapist will discuss whether they believe a follow-up visit is warranted and, if so, recommend a suitable timeframe. If you thoroughly enjoyed your massage and wish to book another session, we highly recommend doing so promptly, as our RMTs are often booked days to weeks in advance due to high demand.
In addition to massage, we may also refer you to one of our talented Chiropractors who can work with your therapist to continue working with you to get you back to living your best life.
