This can be for sport related injuries, sports performance, relief of discomfort, or simply for relaxation.
Westwood's Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) service clients from the surrounding community and close municipalities. They are among the most educated and highly trained; completing at least 3,000 hours of training at an accredited college and must maintain certification through the Registered Massage Therapy Association of BC.
At Westwood Health our rates for care are competitive, and our clinic staff are extensively trained to accurately assess the soft tissues and joints of the body and provide treatments for the prevention of injury, pain and physical disorders.
Various massage techniques have been proven to decrease stress and helps control pain. They have also been shown to be great for treating deeper structures of the body such as ligaments, bones and joints, fascia, blood vessels, organs and other soft tissues of the body.
The Registered Therapists at Westwood Total Health also treat patients using Myofascial Release. Myofascial Release technique approaches soft tissue therapy by restoring the body’s fascia to its normal, relaxed, healthy state. This massage technique is said to be accomplished by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage, and stimulating the stretch reflex of muscles and overlying fascia.
Fascia is a very densely woven connective tissue, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, and vein, as well as all of our organs. Fascia also plays an important role in the support of our bodies, since it surrounds and attaches to all structures. In a normal healthy state, the fascia is relaxed and wavy in configuration, but when we experience physical trauma, scarring, or inflammation, the fascia loses its pliability. Trauma of any sort including minor or major falls, whiplash, surgery, repetitive stress injuries, or just habitual poor posture over time have a cumulative effect.
The benefits offered at our appointments include:
- Reduces stress, tension, and anxiety
- Increases blood and lymph circulation
- Enhances immune function
- Decreases muscle and soft tissue pain
- Improves flexibility and range of motion
